Townsville Publ. by the author & printed by T.Willmett & Sons 1898 2nd Ed. Original Cloth Good 
Original leather rebacked (not recently)with spine laid down. Binding a little worn, with edgewear to extremities,but binding sound.

Probably the best of the early Australian cookery books. Hannah Maclurcan, nee Phillips, at 17 was managing the Club Hotel at Toowoomba for her father, and after her marriage, the Queen's Hotel at Townsville. Later she presided over the old Wentworth Hotel in Sydney, which had a reputation for its fine food and general tone. Her recipes, which often make use of local fruits, game and seafood, are excellent, and her instructions precise and practical. The first edition of this important work was published earlier the same year as this, the second. Scarce.
