LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London and Melbourne: Ward, Lock & Company. " With 32 Plates in Colour and Nearly 700 Illustrations; New Edition" and many contemporary advertisements. Some minor wear to exterior, corners bumped, 1/2 red cloth with tan cloth boards. xvi, 1680 + 10 pp. (advertisements.). Revised after the Great War, with the recipes contributed by or adapted by the famous chef, Herman Senn; the editors were at pains to point out that times had changed; servants being harder to get and even harder to keep. There is an emphasis on labour saving devices and the section on Dominion and Foreign Cookery has been expanded: " we have relinquished almost entirely the old British prejudice against things foreign, and adopted, in great measure, those French methods which established a bond of union among good corks all the world over, long before l'entente cordiale became a recognised factor in human affairs.". However the great Beeton commendations for early rising and cheerfulness for the mistress of a household are still there, alongside advice against hastily formed friendships and the virtues of frugality. The plates are delightful, especially charming are the coloured ones illustrating table decorations and invalid trays. The section on Australian cookery includes bandicoot stewed in milk, among other oddities. ( No Galah and stone soup ;-) ) This book weighs more than 1 Kg. Please enquire as to the extra postage costs for delivery outside Australia with the vendor by pressing "Ask the bookseller a question".. New and Revised Edition. 1/2 Leather Bound Boards. Very Good for Age/No Jacket. Illus. by Various. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall. Cooking.
