What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding
As well as serving in the British Indian Army, Brigadier-General Arthur Robert Kenney-Herbert wrote regular articles about Indian cookery under the pen name Wyvern. Originally published in the Madras Mail, and the Madras Athenium and Daily Notes, Kenny-Herbert's articles were later collected and published as one volume in 1878. The sixth edition of this work contains helpful alterations and forty six pages of new matter. Whilst part two is comprised of thirty menus for parties of various sizes, part one offers recipes and advice on a range of foods and cooking techniques. With a total of four pages of advertisements for books relating to the domestic economy. Two pages to the front pastedown and endpaper, and two to the rear. With an ink stamp to the front pastedown and title page. Possiblly a prior owner with the surname Cayless, which was highly prevalent in Leicestershire at this time.
In the publisher's original blue cloth binding. Externally, generally smart. A little rubbed to the boards, with some discolouration to the cloth at the joints. Bumped to the head and tail of the spine, with some moderate wear to the extremities. Front hinge starting but firm. Internally, firmly bound, with clean, lightly age-toned pages.
