Dainty Desserts: Plain and Fancy.

London; New York: The Butterick Publishing Co., Limited, 1898.

Metropolitan Pamphlet Series: vol. XI, no. 3. Large octavo-sized booklet (24 x 17 cm.), 56 pages. Publisher's advertisements at rear. Third Edition, following the first of 1891 (vol. 2, no 4.), and the second of 1892 (vol. 5, no. 2), both of 32 pages. A quirky book, likely because its contents were pulled from a variety of professional cookbooks in sections. Short sections of recipes include: Dessert Wafers, Fruit Waters, Dates & Figs, Wine Jellies, etc. Internally clean and sound. In tan wrappers, titled in black; some edgewear and chipping to spine. Near very good. Scarce. [OCLC locates just one copy of this edition (George Mason U.), and five copies combined of the first and second edition].

Price: $60.00
