Paris: Publié par J. Hetzel, 1846.
Octavo, 184, iv pages. Illustrated by Bertall. FIRST EDITION. A significant work of early nineteenth-century gastronomy, which, though small by comparison, stands alongside Brillat-Savarin and Dumas. The illustrator Bertall was one of the most prolific French illustrators of the nineteenth century, and a pioneering photographer. Very good or better in handsome green patterned paper over contemporary dark blue calf, spine decorated. With the bookplate of Louis de Villeperdrix, and his signature to a preliminary blank.
