Arte de Cozinha, dividida em quatro partes... correcta, e emendada nesta ultima edição.

Lisbon: Na Impr. de J.N. Esteves, e Filho, 1834.

Duodecimo (15.5 x 10.5 cm.), 272 pages. Later edition, revised and corrected. Originally issued in 1680, Rodrigues' Arte de Cozinha was the first Portuguese book dedicated to cookery, and remained the only cookbook for one hundred years, until the publication of Rigaud's Cozinheiro Moderno in 1780. A touch of foxing. Full calf, gilt-decorated spine with red and green morocco spine labels. Very good. With the bookplate of John Fuller, Director of the Scottish Hotel School, and a great collector of books on cookery, gastronomy and hospitality. [OCLC locates three copies of this edition; Livros Portugueses de cozinha 282; Cagle 1206 (1758 ed.); Simon BG 1300].
