The London Art of Cookery, and Housekeeper's Complete Assistant. On a new plan. Made plain and easy to the understanding of every housekeeper, cook, and servant in the kingdom... The Seventh Edition
London: J. Scatcherd and J. Whitaker, 1792. Octavo, Pages. With 12 plates. Lacking the frontispiece portrait or the author, but with twelve engravings of bills of fare, one for each month. The seventh edition of this extremely popular late-eighteenth century cookbook, with recipes considered to be straightforward and useful, despite their being ghost written by "the printer and hack Richard Johnson". (Lehmann, The British Housewife, page 79) Interesting sections include, Pickling, Collaring, Potting, Preparation of Hams, Bacon, &c., Elegant Ornaments for a Grand Entertainment, Made Wines, Cordial Waters, Malt Liquors, Culinary Poisons, and Necessary Articles for Sea Faring Persons. Manuscript recipe "To Cure Hams" tipped onto front free end paper. Title page showing some edgewear and light soiling, otherwise very good in somewhat soiled and edgeworn original boards. An untrimmed copy, in original boards, and rare thus. [Bitting, page 152; Maclean, page 50; Oxford, page 114].
