Title: Mrs Beeton's All -About Cookery. New Edition.
Description: London, Ward Lock, 1907. Hardcover. 8vo. with a coloured frontispiece, 8 coloured plates and 48 plates in monochrome. Bound in original decorative cloth. There is some occasional mild spotting to text , original decorative brown cloth blocked in gilt and black, gilt back, covers mildly age-marked. There is light wear on the cloth, as to be expected for something of this age .With advertisement front endpapers in sepia and 11pp of similar advertisements at end. In excellent condition . 'All About Cookery' (first issued under this title in 1871) is a derivative of Isabella Beeton's final work 'The Dictionary of Cookery'. The 'Dictionary' was first published in 1865 and designed to fill the gap between her classic (but highly-priced) 'Book of Household Management' and the cheaper 'Cookery'. A key feature of the work is the arrangement of its subject matter - recipes, menus, implements and so on - in alphabetical order for easy reference. It is her only work so presented and to our belief the first compilation of its kind. The Edwardian editions are particularly comprehensive in their scope and coverage. Very Good .
