Paris: Librarie Hachette et Cie, 1873.
Quarto, 506 pages. Illustrated with ten chromolithograph plates, and one hundred thirty-seven wood engravings in the text. First edition. One of the great works of this student of Careme, head chef of the Jockey Club, and so-called "apostle of decorative cuisine." Internally very good, in sound but homely paper-covered board with gilt-titled black cloth spine.
