The Connoisseur's Cookbook.

New York; Taichung City: Random House; [Taiwan Donghai Publishing House, [1970].

Quarto (26 x 19.5 cm.), 505, [7] pages. Illustrated. Index. Stated "FIRST AMERICAN EDITION", but really a Taiwanese pirate issued five years after the Random House publication. The production values are typical of many of these pirates, with cheaper, thinner paper, and illustrations printed with an odd color process. In publisher's green cloth; some offsetting to endpapers. The dust jacket, illustrated with a photograph by Bouilland of lobsters on a platter. Some light edge chipping, and closed tear to the bottom of the front panel. Overall, near very good. Scarce in the pirate issue.

Price: $120.00
