Food Diet Values.

Liverpool: C. Tinling & Co., [1917].

Octavo (19 x 13 cm.), 15 pages. FIRST EDITION. In the midst of the First World War, Walker compiled excerpts from "a Blue Book dealing with the question of the Decrease of Native Population of the Colony of Fiji, published in 1896" to address the food crisis facing England. Fijian planter George Aloys Peat argues a deficiency of food led to a population decrease. Walker supplements this argument with tables of food values best suited to various cultures. In blue cloth with slight discoloration; text block separated, with mild foxing to edges and end papers. With the bookseller's ticket of Cook Books, Surrey. [OCLC locates two copies].
