Rare first edition of this essay on bread and bread-making, by the physician and naturalist Saverio Manetti (1723-85).

A separate section details the specifics of oriental bread - "Pane Etiopico, e Saracenico", and varieties "in grand' uso appresso l' Egitto" (pp. 148ff.). "This work precedes Parmentier's 'Parfait Boulanger' by 13 years" (Westbury). - Very lightly foxed, but a very good copy, uncut. With Lord Westbury's bookplate to front pastedown. Bitting 185 (1766 edition only, s.v. "Ginori"). Gamba 2328 (1768 ed. only). Re III, 103. Westbury 138-140.
