La Cuisine Francaise: French cooking for every home. Adapted to American requirements.

Chicago: Baldwin, Ross & Co., Publishers, Masonic Temple, 1893.

Octavo (19 x 13 cm.), 158 pages. Illustrated. FIRST EDITION. Tanty was a student of Careme, a chef to Napoleon III and to the Imperial Family of Russia. But the four hundred thirty-eight recipes in this book aim toward cooking "feasible for all housekeepers". Some light soiling and darkening to edges of text block; some light spotting to title page and other preliminaries. In fancifully illustrated chromolithographic wrappers. Wrappers show some rubbing to edges, a crease to the front panel and some light soil. Still, near very good for a book infrequently found complete. [OCLC locates eighteen copies; Bitting, page 455; not in Cagle].

Price: $120.00
