12mo. pp 112 + advertising. Some soiling and edgewear to boards. PO book plate laid into front ep. Envelope pasted on to rear ep with a newspaper cutting of recipes for paperbag cooking as well as a leaflet stating "These are the only bags approved by Monsieur Soyer..." Webbing showing at rear hinge, otherwise a clean tight copy. The author, late chef of Brook's Club, did not claim to be able to cook everything in a paper-bag but his enthusiasm is pretty infectious. An immensely popular work, this little book went into three editions in 51 days (Bitting, Driver). This appears to be the first American edition.
