La Cuisiniere de la Campagne et de la Ville, ou Nouvelle Cuisine Economique; Contenant : table des mets selon l'ordre du service... Vingtieme édition, corrigée et augmentée.

Paris: Audot, Libraire-Editeur, 1836.

Duodecimo, 480, 24 pages. Styled twentieth edition. Vicaire notes that this extremely popular work has on occasion been misattributed to Mlle. Aglaé Adanson. In 1832, Philadelphia's Carey & Hart published the first American edition, a translation by Eliza Leslie, one of the earliest French cookbooks published in the U.S. A lovely copy, untrimmed, in original printed, paper-covered boards, with a bit of pulling at the hinges. A touch of foxing to some pages, small bit of final leaf adhered to the rear board, otherwise fresh and supple. Near very good. Rare in the original publisher's boards.[OCLC locate just two copies of this 20th printing; Bitting, page 20 (1859 printing only); Cagle 54; Vicaire, page 54].
