Large octavo (25 x 16.5 cm.), vi, 362 pages. Second edition. A remarkable historical and archaeological study of food in Alsace. The 1862 original edition published in Colmar by Decker is very rare. Oberlé states "this new edition is the most sought after" (Oberlé 516). A few of dog ears to a some pages, and some light foxing, otherwise very good, in publisher's original printed wrappers, with edgewear and some of the wrapper's spine panel perished. Still a good copy, whole and not unattractive. In custom clamshell box.[OCLC locates thirty copies; Maggs 503; Oberlé 516; Vicaire 401].
