Spine extensively worn, although with little loss, making a good candidate for rebinding. Hinges split front and back, three rear advertising pages loose, but otherwise secure. Internally this is a very good copy, with all colour plates and fold-outs intact and showing only some age-toning and occasional food stains. In sum a good entry-level or working copy. A particularly attractive edition with its charming folding plates of dinner and supper tables, menus for everything from family tea to an elaborate ball supper and detailed instructions on servants' duties. A chapter on Australian cookery is included with recipes for oyster soup, roast wallaby, parrot pie and peach and pineapple marmalade among others.

Price = 200.00 AUD
