Your Daily Bread (Association copy), Grant, Doris
1 Grant, Doris Your Daily Bread (Association copy)
London Faber & Faber 1944 First edition Original Cloth Good 
Black stain approx 4cm long on spine, pages yellowed. Doris Grant became a convert to the Hay System of eating when it helped improve her crippling arthritis. Encouraged by WIlliam Hay, she began publishing books on the plan for a British audience. This slim volume is one of the most famous of her books. As well as supplying recipes, including one for her famous Grant Loaf, it also cited evidence to support her contention that refined white bread was "murdered food" because it has the most important, life-giving element, the wheat germ removed. While initially met with scepticism, many of her ideas on food are now regarded as commonplace, and given she lived until 98, probably worth paying attention to. This copy has the name Ambrose Heath on the ffep.

6 Heath, Ambrose Good Food Again Month By Month Recipes
London Faber and Faber 1950 First edition Original Cloth Good fair Jacket 
D/w is tatty at the edges, with some foxing to the folds, which is also evident on the edges of the text block. Some offset on eps, but contents are clean and binding tight. With all of Heath's usual style, this book was originally written in 1945, but publication was postponed because of the austerity of post-war Britain. His hopeful tone here "reminds us how to prepare the good and pleasant food which has for so long been absent from our table." although he also apologises teasingly for the presence of such "highly creamy dishes as the beans landaise on page 91, the cucumber (p.94), the delicious trout Normande and the truly exquisite smoked salmon tart (p.54)...However by the time these words appear in print, cream may be with us again. Excellent recipes. Scarce
