Stillroom Cookery. The art of preserving foods naturally, with recipes, menus, and metric measures.

McLean, VA: EPM Publications, 1983.

Octavo (23.5 x 16 cm.), 279 pages. Illustrated. Index. FIRST EDITION. A gem of a book from the Alaska-born and Virginia-based old ways practitioner, Grace Firth. She discusses the stillroom, and its place in the home and in the lives of women, before surveying its products: cheese, breads, beverages, vinaigres bons, cured meats, fish and fowl, dry staples, etc. Some light sunning to spine, otherwise near fine in publisher's illustrated boards, with no dust jacket, as issued.

Price: $45.00
