2 Duckitt, Hildagonda Hilda's "Where is it?" of Recipes Containing, amongst other practical and tried recipes, many old Cape, Indian, and Malay Dishes and Preserves; also directions for polishing furniture, cleaning silk etc. and a collection of home remedies in case of sickness.
London Chapman & Hall 1894 Sixth thousand Leather_bound Very Good 
Rebound (well but not recently) in sympathetic maroon leather, with title in gilt on front board. Internally clean and tight Miss Duckitt's book, first published 1891, was immensely successful, with editions appearing regularly until 1925, if not later. 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. 
Price: 125.00 AUD
