La Bonne Cuisine de Madame E. Saint-Ange. Huit cents recettes et cinq cents menus.

Paris: Librairie Larousse, 1929; [1947].

Octavo (18.5 x 12.5 cm.), 448 pages. Illustrated with 36 gravures. Index. Stated "31e edition." An abridged version of the celebrated 1927 cookbook, "Le Livre de Cuisine de Madame Saint-Ange: recettes et méthodes de la bonne cuisine française", though this title was later applied to the full length work, and to an English version translated by Paul Aratow in 2005. The contents were largely culled from a column by Marie Ebrard in Pot-au-Feu, a weekly periodical edited by the author's husband. A detailed but approachable cookbook, La Bonne Cuisine was a significant reference for Julia Child while she was writing Mastering the Art... Publisher's lithographically illustrated, paper-covered boards, backed in blue cloth. Paper title label to spine. Lacking the free front endpaper. Age toning to txt block. Wear to edges of boards and a short pull to the head of the spine; otherwise near very good. With the bookplate of the Sontheimer Foundation.

Price: $50.00
