A Book of Mediterranean Food
London: John Lehmann Ltd,, 1950. Decorated by John Minton. Octavo. Original red and white textured cloth, title to spine gilt on brown ground. With the dust jacket designed by John Minton. Frontispiece, vignette title, and illustrations by John Minton. Ownership annotations to 6 pages, including an index of favoured recipes to the rear free endpaper, and an original recipe for Hollandaise sauce; as the result of attempting David's recipe was "a mass of curds and whey". Spine gently rolled; an excellent copy in the jacket with slight nicks to extremities and a small chip to head of spine. First edition, first impression. David (1913–1992) taught herself Mediterranean-style cooking while living abroad during the early 1940s, and in 1949 she began writing a food column for Harper's Bazaar. This book was published to wide acclaim the following year, and she is now recognised for her profound influence on British culinary culture.
