Pot-Luck, Seventh Edition (Revised and Enlarged) of May Byron's Home Cookery Book. Over Eleven Hundred Recipes from an Old Family Ms. Books, With a Number of Special Additions on Invalid and Convalescent Foods, Etc.

London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1926.

Thick octavo, 439 pages. Seventh edition, revised and enlarged, of this cookbook compiled from family manuscript recipe collections. The geographic origins of the more than 1000 recipes are indicated. Upon publication of the first edition, The Spectator remarked "so many cookery books have been written, that it might seem hopeless to produce one on original lines" but that Miss Byron "has succeeded in doing so." Foxing to edges of text block and to some pages throughout. Otherwise near fine, in clean dark green-printed tan cloth. In the scarce dust jacket, which erroneously states "Sixth Edition, Revised and Enlarged". Some edgewear and chipping near head of spine, otherwise very good.

Price: $250.00
