Essays on the Management of the Dairy; Including the Modern Practice of the Best Districts in the Manufacture of Cheese and Butter..., new edition, corrected & enlarged.

London: Printed for J. Harding, 36, St. James's Street, 1816.

Duodecimo, 178, [2] pages. Publisher's advertisements. FIRST EDITION under this title, but an updated of Josiah Twamey's Dairying Exemplified, originally published in 1784. The book was written as a single continuous chapter, but this has been remedied in this edition, with clear chapters and sections and a good table. In this expanded version, additional sections by different authors are added as well, with the authors credited at each chapter. Under the title Dairying Exemplified, the book was published in Providence, Rhode Island in 1796, and was the first book on dairying published in America. The book is divided into two main sections, "On the Management of the Butter-Dairy" and "On the Management of the Cheese-Dairy", and includes descriptions of the making of various British and Foreign cheese. Free front endpaper stained and lacking about fifteen percent at top of page (signature removed?). In original blue paper-covered boards, over tan paper, partially perished at spine, but text block still sound. Spine label rubbed off. Still, internally very good, and overall good plus. [Chau & Chau. Blunden. 7: 350].
