Item Description: Aurum Press. London. 2015 1st edition. 8vo (155 x 240mm). Ppxii,323. Foreword by Bee Wilson. Decorative, paper-covered boards, issued without dust-wrapper. Slightly shelf-worn but a new, unread hardback. This is a fascinating collection of articles on food and cookery taken from various editions of the Telegraph over the last hundred years or so, although with a leaning towards the second half of the period. What this collection really demonstrates is the change in London journalists' attitudes towards food and the kitchen - what is really a question of husbandry and the household economy is seen by them as merely a hobby and something of a curiosity. This explains the book's leaning towards articles from more recent decades, and clarifies the incomprehension shown by the contemporary food journo faced with such things as "'Let us serve [strawberries] with cream and sugar, but let the cream be farm fresh and not that absolutely tasteless shop stuff which has to be tiddled up (otherwise all it provides is density) and let the sugar be that pale, beige, sand-textured .sugar which anyone can get if they try.' The person reading this feels admonished. Note to self: try harder when buying cream and sugar." This is from a discussion of an article of 1970, of green memory: a sentiment repeated in some of the more recent articles discussing factory ready meals as if this had any parallel at all with Mrs Beeton or the experience to discriminate between good sugar (cream, fish, strawberries) and bad. The older articles lean towards husbandry, the more recent towards food as a pastime of the well-off urbanite. Other articles discuss social trends amongst the population at large or their era. Egon Ronay tells us, in 1957, that the "methods of the secret police of gastronomy" interested him. "The ones I met, intelligent, alert men, had formed interesting conclusions on the French travelling public and tourist. They find that as car-ownership spreads among all classes SAUCES become less important, SOLID MEAT dishes more so, LESS TIME is spent on eating and GRILLS [Ronay's capitals] are consequently popular. Young French people are more interested in food and wine than their parents were at their age. This is true in Britain too." A fascinating collection of readable newspaper feature articles which illuminates in a way which was, I am sure, quite unintended by the compilers. The domestic husbandwoman, and -man, who leans towards the earlier articles in this collection will find an extensive range of books on husbandry, domestic, sporting and horticultural, on our website.

Item Description: Putnam and Company. London. ND 1953 1st edition. Oblong slim 8vo (210mm x 138mm). Pp63. Colour plates and b/w sketches by the author throughout. Brown boards, spine titled in gilt. Slight spotting to end-papers else very good in used dust-wrapper. "The eager tension of the first 'Gone away' on a misty autumn morning; the good-tempered bickering of mares at stud under summery elms; the methodical calm of a blacksmith's shop - it is the very smell and feeling of such moments that Lionel Edwards seems to capture on paper. .This is a collection of the notes and impressions that go to make up Lionel Edwards' finished pictures. As often in the sketchbooks of the masters, some of these jottings have an artless brilliance more dazzling, because more unexpected and isolated, than full-size paintings. Studies of the National Stud, and of Foxhunter embarking in the airliner for Helsinki, are reminders that enthusiasm for riding and horses is now keener and more widespread than ever before. [This book] will bring a wide-ranging sample of Lionel Edwards' skill to a new generation of horse-lovers.". Bookseller Inventory # 40919

Item Description: George Routledge & Sons. London. (1898) ND (1905) 2nd edn. Small 8vo (137 x 191mm). Ppxii,272 + 4pp ads. 4 colour plates of salmon flies, b/w plates, illustrations. Green decorative cloth. * Pages 149-156 and all four colour plates of flies missing, else good plus. Volume IV in The Angler's Library, edited by Sir Herbert Maxwell. Principally of interest today are the recipes for salmon flies of that time. Sir Herbert was an ardent fly-tyer: his chapters on flies and fly-dressing are important reference points for modern enthusiasts. He lists the original dressings for such standard classics as the Wilkinson, the Mar Lodge, Dusty Miller and Silver Doctor - but also, in a fairly long list, many less familiar patterns such as the Rory, the Owenmore, the Hell Fire, the Butcher, and more. Sir Herbert's comments are amusing and instructive - the Butcher he calls "A venerable pattern with nothing to recommend it except its antiquity and killing properties, for it is a tiresome fly to dress and an ugly beast to look at." Of the Childers he notes: "Not a favourite of mine, but guilty of thousands of murders." His own flaming scarlet and gold creation, the "Sir Herbert", invented almost in jest to annoy conservative ghillies, he cannot recommend "for this reason, that the hackle lying over the tinsel is very apt to be cut" by a salmon's teeth. Typically practical advice from an experienced fisherman. In addition to the many fascinating details included in the text, are some of Sir Herbert's superb fishing anecdotes. He was one of the wittiest of fishing writers, and well understood the value of interspersing the lessons and information with some entertainment. * Second issue of the 1905 edition (Routledge's Country Books series): Cloth not embossed but printed in brown and yellow, top edge not gilt.

Item Description: Philip Allan & Co. London. (1848) 1921 5th edition. 8vo (146 x 225mm). Ppxii,206. Four b/w illustrations by John Leach. Spine slightly faded, slight foxing else good-plus. Tarka the Foxhound, with plenty of opinion and observation about foxhunting. "Trimbush told his story - the story of his life - long ago, and a generation of sportsmen have, probably, been succeeded by another since then, the autobiography of that old and sagacious hound is now presented to the notice of those who may have been denied the opportunity of profiting either by his sage advice or experience. It will be conceded that, whatever egotism taints his arguments, Trimbush was 'a shrewd philosopher, having a why for every wherefore.' He spoke of men and foxes as he found them; and if occasionally somewhat too severe upon the commissions and omissions of the former, he was equally ready, at all times, to show his teeth to the latter." Earlier editions had colour plates, this fifth edition has black and white engravings in their place. Bookseller Inventory # 40864

Item Description: Herbert Jenkins. London. 1936 1st edition. Large 8vo (161 x 243mm). Ppxii,113. B/w illustrations by Lionel Edwards and Marguerite Kirmse. Green cloth, upper board and spine titled in black. Spine slightly rubbed, slight browning else good copy. "Of all our beasts of chase the fox is the most active, game, and beautiful. Long years ago he was a member of the vermin lis with a price upon his head, but he gradually emerged from ignominy until now he is in the highest favour, and second to none in the sport that he affords. Foxhunting to-day is as popular as ever it was, despite such drawbacks as wire, motor traffic, and glass-like roads, things of which our grandfathers knew nothing. .Very large fields attend the meets of the fashionable packs. Youthful foxhunters are will catered for by the Pony Clubs. In the following chapters I have ventured to set down something about the fox and his ways, in the hop that it may prove attractive to the 'young entry' of both sexes, and perhaps encourage them to take a personal interest in the 'old customer' that provides them with so much good sport." Chapters include: The red fox; Fox cubs; Habits of the fox; The hunted fox; Scent of the fox; Fox coverts and artificial fox earths; The fox in captivity; The fox in art and fable; The foxes; Scottish hill foxes.
