London: Frederick Muller Ltd., 1966.
Tall octavo, 384 pages. Index. First UK edition, following one year behind the New York Doubleday publication of 1965. An encyclopedic reference to entertaining, from the directrice of the haute couture house of Nina Ricci. "Whether it's how to serve a really good cup of coffee or entertain in a one-room flat or plan a menu for that special dinner party, you'll find Madame Dariaux's advice constantly practical and full of specific hints and suggestions that will make your occasions more enjoyable, tasteful, and original" (from the jacket copy). Very near fine in green cloth. In a near fine dust jacket, designed by Fred Pauker. While arriving on English shelves a year later than the American first edition, the design of this English edition is clearly, and most appropriately, more elegant.
