Cunning Cookery.

London: Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd. 1938.

Octavo, 181 pages. First edition. A between-the-wars cookbook aimed at the recently servantless cook with few ingredients and little equipment. The book is peppered with little anecdotes or historical references, which leads me to believe the author felt he needed more than recipes to hold the attention of those newly arrived in the kitchen. Bound in limp cloth with an attractive color-illustration to the front boards. Bumping to the lower right corner of the text block, otherwise very good or better. Previous owner name to front paste down.

Price: $90.00
