London David Bogue 1846 First edition (?) Original Cloth Good 
Corners and head and foot of spine are bumped, spine is sun-faded as are edges, with possible watermark to front right edge. Internally, a split between pastedown and ffep has rendered the binding a little loose, although it is secure. Inscription to ffep. Pages are generally clean, although edge of text block is browned. In sum a good solid copy of a scarce volume. This appears to be the first English edition, a translation of "La Cuisiniere de la Campagne et de la Ville; ou, Nouvelle Cuisine Economique" published also in 1846 in Paris. An 1846 American edition is cited in the Methodist Review of that year (in which the reviewer takes the publisher to task for including the sections on wines and asks for a teetotal edition). Bitting mentions that another English publication with the same title was published in 1825, but does not suggest a connection, although some sources cite it as first and this as second. Scarce.

Regarded as the Mrs Beeton of South Africa, her cookery books introduced many to the culinary traditions of the "old Cape families of Dutch descent" who often had Malay and Indian cooks. Recipes for food, household items and remedies are all arranged alphabetically, which results in some interesting juxtapositions -e.g. claret cup followed by claret stains (to remove), A most enjoyable book.

17 Raffald, Elizabeth The Experienced English Housekeeper For the use and ease of Ladies, Housekeepers. Cooks, etc., written purely from the practice, and dedicated to the Hon.Lady Elizabeth Warburton, Whom the Author lately served as Housekeeper: Consisting of near Nine Hundred Original Receipts, most of which never appeared in print
London Printed for R.Baldwin 1771 Second edition Good 
8vo. iv + pp.384 + index. Original calf rebacked. Wear to extremities. Front and back hinge recently repaired. Internally tight and clean with scattered foxing and occasional stain. An important work, first published 1769. Mrs Raffald was housekeeper to Lady Elizabeth Warburton, at Arley Hall, Cheshire. She later married the head gardener there and the couple moved to Manchester, where she set up a registry office for domestic servants, which she ran in conjunction with her cooked meat and confectioner's shop. Business was brisk and larger premises were soon needed. In spite of continual pregnancies - she had sixteen daughters - she somehow found time to write her immensely popular cookery book, full of delicious recipes, though, according to Quayle, she never parted with the recipe for her famous brawn, "a delicacy she sold sliced by the pound, and which had customers throughout the length and breadth of Lancashire". Title page notes that "No book is genuine but what is signed by the Author" as this is on page 1.

18 Rundell, Maria A NEW SYSTEM OF DOMESTIC COOKERY Formed upon Principles of Economy, and adapted to the use of private families, By a Lady. With the addition of many new Receipts
London John Murray, Albermarle St 1845 Original Cloth Good 
Professionally rebacked with new endpapers and original spine laid down. Contents are internally clean and binding is now sound, although some sections are offset and several showing edgewear from when the book was previously loosely bound. Mrs Maria Eliza Rundell published her famous work in 1806. It was the earliest and most popular household manual of the 19th century, going into about 70 editions. Oxford cites a 65th edition in 1841 with an amended form appearing as late as 1893, so this one is probably the 66th. The recipes are very interesting indeed. Pickled oysters,braised chickens (with bacon, herbs, stock and sherry), roast onions and coffee cream ("observe that your coffee be fresh") are some appealing ones. The book includes cookery for the poor, household recipes, and menus. 
Price: 200.00 AUD

19 Salmon, William The Family Dictionary or Household Companion. Containing in an alphabetical method, I Directions for cookery etc....
London Printed for H.Rhodes at The Star, the corner of Bride Lane in Fleet Street 1705 Third edition Good 
Rebound in modern half-calf with marbled boards. Title page corners are shabby and a dozen following have dog-ears. Occasional rust stains,watermark. Remnants of insect damage affect a small section of pp 167 - 176. First published in 1695 by W.H, in this Third Edition William Salmon gives himself the title of Professor of Physic, although some writers suggest he was only a well-read quack. This lovely example of the household companion is a wealth of information for "Ladies, Gentlewomen and such other Persons, whose Station requires their taking care of the House." It contains instructions on the Preparation of Medecines as well as for "The Dressing of Food or Meats for conservation of the strength of the Body" and, the author claims " contains the best Receipts for Cookery that are Extant" . The alphabetical arrangement of the text means that the medical remedies are interspersed with the recipes, so that for example instructions for baking a Loin of Veal are followed by remedies for Looseness of the bowel!
