Cassell's Dictionary of Cooking

£50.00

Product description

This is a whopping big book (1850 g without packing). It boasts "Numerous Illustrations" and that it contains "about Nine Thousand Recipes"..
The problem is that it is very reticent about its provenance. While published by Cassell and Company there is no date and no author or editor credited. It has a single colour illustrations - the frontispiece showing comparative pictures of Good and Bad meat.. There is a brief Preface and then a longer essay on The Principles of Cooking and Table management. The Dictionary itself is a dual column format with individual items in bold type; they start with Aberdeen sandwiches and end with Zandrina Pudding. There follows three appendices on Kitchen Utensils, Seasonable Food and a Glossary of term used in cookery. There are indeed, as promised, a number of etchings of products and utensils dotted throughout the text.

Cassell hardback with no DJ. and no date of publication .Half leather The external hinges are a bit suspect both top and bottom but remain functional nal. There is a small defect of the bottom of the spine cover and the upper part has been worn. There is a bit of edge and corner wear to the boards. Marbled end papers again with somewhat sprung but functional internal hinges. There is a little do-earing of some pages and the bottom cut surface of the text block has a geographical mark which looks like damp but does not seem to have affected the underlying pages.

Altogether an interesting book but its size and weight means that transport costs must be considerable.
