The Dill Crock.

[Boston, Mass. The Jackdaw Press, 1984].

Stapled booklet, Octavo (21.5 x 13.5), 24 pages. FIRST EDITION. One of John Thorne's attractive little booklets, this one on the subject of pickles, detailing the equipment, ingredients, and practice of pickling. Largely cucumber-oriented, with brief mention given to a variety of other fruits and vegetables. Contains much of Thorne’s personal philosophizing on the subject. John Thorne is an American food writer, best known for his essay/recipe collections and his newsletter, Simple Cooking. This series series of single-subject pamphlets, published early in his writing career, ere each focused on a specific and often idiosyncratic culinary topic. Copies of even solitary issues in this series are difficult to come by. In very good condition, and would be near fine if not for some discoloration to the wrappers and to a few pages internally. Scarce.

Price: $50.00
