The Lady's Own Cookery Book, and new Dinner-Table Directory; in which will be found a large collection of original Receipts, including not only the result of the Authoress's many years observation, experience, and research, but also the Contributions of an extensive circle of acquaintance: adapted to the use of Persons Living In the Highest Style, as well as those of moderate fortune
LONDON: HENRY COLBURN, 1844 A very rare original copy of the 3rd edition of Lady Charlotte Bury's famous cookery book for Ladies. This edition has been much reprinted in recent years and is frequently quoted from by cookery writers but is very scarce. Lady Charlotte Bury - also known as Lady Charlotte Campbell Bury - lived from 1775-1861 - and was well known as a society hostess and authoress. She was Lady in Waiting to the Princess of Wales - later Queen - and published a diary based on her experience as well as works of fiction. The book is in its original binding with gilt decoration of hanging game on the spine. It has had a cloth case repair to relay the spine but the original endpapers have been retained. With ink signature of Ella M Smith on the front endpaper. The binding is sound and tight - there has been some damage to the back board possibly where string or tape was used to hold the book together before the binding was repaired. The contents are in very good condition for a cookery book. There is some browning and brown spotting generally to margins rather than text. The odd page has been badly opened. Both endpapers have some damp staining. Publisher's catalogue bound at the rear.
