Wrap covers detached from contents and repaired along spine. Some minor stains to wraps, contents very clean. Edited by K.Balfour, this aims "to provide the young housekeeper with a fundamental knowledge of cookery." Very interesting to study the menus. A summer Monday offering is cold lamb, jellied beetroot, mashed or new potatoes, followed by blancmange with jam. Things look up on a winter Sunday with roast fowl, boiled pork or bacon, cauliflower, bread sauce and mashed potatoes (rather a white dinner), followed by orange snow. Ms Balfour's best advice? "READ (your) cookery books, and not just use them for one or two special recipes that take your fancy" Lovely edition of this work.
