La Cuisine du Siècle , Dictionnaire pratique des recettes culinaires et des recettes de ménage. Deux cents menus à l'usage de tous.

Coulommiers: en vente Chez l'Auteur; Imprimerie Paul Brodard, 1895.

Octavo (18.5 x 14 cm.), 318, [1] pages. Table of contents. Text in two columns. FIRST EDITION, published by the author herself; soon after the work was published "Aux Magasins du Bon Marchè". Two hundred menus, with recipes, arranged in alphabetical order. Although the book appears to be aimed at the French household cook, many of the recipes reflect cooking at the grand restaurants of the era. Some sample dishes: Grenouilles a la Dumas, Ecrivisses en Honchet, Petits oiseaux au fumet, and Poitrine d'agneau Sainte-Menehould. Age-toning throughout, in printed pale blue cloth with some rubbing and light soiling; tape adhesion marks to front and rear paste-downs. Near very good. With the bookplate of culinary collector John Fuller. [OCLC locates just four copies of the first edition].

Price: $150.00
