        El Libro de Cocina

      Mexico: Ed. Rodriguez y Co. / Ed. Dublany Comp, 1893. First Edition. Hardcover (Quarter Leather). Very Good Condition. José Guadalupe Posada. 1/4 acid calf over cloth boards, corners worn and bumped, binding sound. Modest age toning internally, a few creases and minor tears, light wear to a few page edges, generally clean and unmarked internally and in unusually good condition overall. Two volumes in one, the appendix collects Spanish and Mexican recipes. xx, 21-1085, (2), 418, xxii, pp. One engraved plate of a stove, in text illustrations, many of equipment, throughout (at least one, of a rabbit on a spit, by José Guadalupe Posada). Though a student of Careme and one of the chief practitioners of 19th century haute cuisine, Gouffé's Mexican cookbook is exhaustive, presenting an astounding selection of food from the most difficult to prepare to simple, everyday fare - paired with instructions on all facets of household management. The Mexican and Spanish section is more weighted toward the Spanish (there was an 1885 Madrid edition of Gouffé's cookbook) as the target market was clearly upper class Mexican households who identified with Europe at least as much as with Mexico. Still, the guisado and guajolote sections feature many good Mexican recipes and the "Barbacoa mexicano" recipe (lifted from the Diccionario de Cocina) gives good instruction on slow cooking in an earth pit. Size: 4to. Illustrator: José Guadalupe Posada. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000176.

        The Two Lancrofts . in three Volumes .

      London: James R. Osgood, McIlvaine & Co. . 1893 - 3 vols., 8vo., with the half-titles; original purple cloth, blocked and lettered in silver with a wavy band of four lines down the front of the cover, spines uniformly faded, endpapers foxed, but an unusual binding and an attractive copy.First edition. This novel begins as a tale of college life, but proceeds as the story of a young man's initiation into the world of letters. Keary (whose authorial specialities were numismatics and Scandinavian history) was known for eliding autobiographical material with his fictions, and this novel is no exception. Certainly Willie's period as a struggling young writer in Paris finds echo in Keary's own interest in the French naturalism of Balzac and Zola, while the theatrical figures of the final section share the author's own preoccupation with the plays of Ibsen. Contemporary reviewers claimed to discern in Keary's fiction thinly veiled portaits of literary figures of the day. Not in Wolff; two copies only on OCLC.

        Old & Rare Scottish Tartans with Historical Introduction and Descriptive Notices

      Edinburgh: George P. Johnston 1893, 1st edition, 68 of 250 numbered copies.. () viii, 61, 45pp. Very good. Large quarto. Original dark indigo blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on title and spine. Two large intricate gilt decorations on front, one small on spine. Gilt top foredge, others untrimmed. Scottish crests decorative endpapers. Previous owners signature on verso dated 1893; signed by publisher on half-title verso. Dutch, handmade paper. Square sepia image on title, offset onto half-title verso. 45 tartans described, each with a large cloth samples mounted on seperate opposite page. Cloths have offsetted onto description page. A historically significant reference for its subject matter and innovation. Most Scottish references of the time focused on clans with illustrations of tartans, but Stewarts book focused on the tartans themselves. The idea of mounting actual tartans, woven in silk, had never been done before. It provided an exact record of sett patterns. These 45 tartans were specifically chosen for either their rarity or their age. This is a great copy of a brilliant tartan reference..

        Superb full Signature!

      "Bold signature ?Theodore Roosevelt? on 5.25? x 2.25? sheet. Accompanied by Typed Letter Signed ?J.M. Stricker / Secy,? 8.5? x 11?, transmitting the letter, on Roosevelt?s personal Metropolitan magazine letterhead, with original 5.5? x 3.5? stamped postmarked envelope. Fine condition.Miss Josephine M. Stricker (1893-1988) was Roosevelt?s private secretary. In ?Talks With T.R. ?" From the Diaries of John J. Leary, Jr.? (Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920), Leary recalls an event that occurred as 1920 approached: ??Why not?? Colonel Roosevelt asked this question one day when a visitor jokingly remarked that in the event of his returning to the White House, he might have a woman private secretary. The woman in question was Miss Josephine M. Stricker, who became attached to his staff in the Bull Moose days and was his secretary to the end. ?Miss Stricker is a perfectly good secretary,? he went on. ?She is competent, faithful, loyal. If she is to be criticized at all, it is because she tries to do too much herself. Should I by any chance return to the White House, I should be glad to have a secretary of her attainments. Some of the politicians might not like it, it might be somewhat embarrassing to them, and it would be a precedent, but I am sure that if I could stand it, and she could stand the politicians, we are about the only persons who would have to be considered.??"
