Modern Domestic Cookery, and useful Receipt Book, adapted for Families in the Middling and Gentel Ranks of Life, with a Complete Family Physician. Instructions for Making British Wines, Brewing, Baking, &c.,&c.

London: Dean & Munday, 1820.

Duodecimo, iv, 288 pages. Illustrated frontispiece and four engraved plates. Third edition, probable second printing. The book sports two title pages, one dated 1819 and one 1820, which leads us to presume that the printer just added the 1820 title page without removing the former. A fairly popular work that Oxford indicates had at least nine editions. Includes some interesting medical remedies, including this one for headache: "This unpleasant pain may be prevented by wearing the hair short, and by washing the head daily in cold water; then rub the hair dry, and expose it to the air." Some spotting and foxing throughout. Original olive colored moire cloth with leather spine label. Some wear to front hinge. [Cagle 720, 721, & 722 note other editions; as does Oxford page 143-44; Simon BG cites the 1819 and 1828 editions].
