Buffets & Receptions.

Lugano: Editions Rene Kramer, 1983.

Thick quarto, 893 pages. Illustrated. First edition. Text in French. A monster compendium of meals appropriate for celebrations, with recipes drawn from throughout Europe (although distinctly francophilic), and with menus for occasions as diverse as baby showers and a king's afternoon snack. Previous owner's name in ink on free front end paper, and a tiny bit of foxing to the top edge, otherwise fine in a very good dust jacket.

Price: $90.00
