What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Original Binding, Very Scarce
This very scarce first edition volume by Frances L. Tupper sheds light on the fashionable dishes and cuisines of the early 20th century. To provide an answer to that daily question, 'what shall we have for dinner?', Tupper has compiled this volume comprised of 366 menus printed in both English and French. The menus are suitable for between 2 and twelve people, and offer a window into popular dishes of the time. Undated and unable to date from JISC. However, one of the recipe books referred to in the preface was originally published in 1929.
Bound in the original quarter calf binding. Externally, generally smart. Rubbed to the front board. Very lightly rubbed to the front joint and the spine. A little bumped to the head and tail of the spine, with some minor wear to the extremities. Front hinge starting but firm. Internally, firmly bound, although the gutter is showing at pages 176 to 177. Lightly foxed to the endpapers, but pages are otherwise bright and clean.
