Binding showing wear to extremities, particularly corners.Edge of text block browned, internally some foxing and light stains scattered, but concentrated on 4 pages for puddings. xx + pp.484 The author of this popular work - it went into over 10 editions - was an eccentric, wealthy physician, who never practised, but enjoyed experimental cookery and the preparation of feasts for his friends. He acknowledges the assistance of Mr Henry Osborne, "the excellent Cook to the late Sir Joseph Banks" (3rd Edition) but this revised edition is of particular interest since it also includes (pp.18-21) a list of cookery books dating from 1513-1814.
