Book Description Studio Vista, London, 1978. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Dust jacket price clipped, rubbed to edges and repairs to back, now in clear protective sleeve. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. Some minor marks to rnd papers. Numerous illustrations and photographs. 100 plates. 256 pages. The art of cookery dates back to primordial Man and his discovery of the uses of harnessed fire. It was not until thousands of years later, however, that the first identified written recipes were made, preserved on baked clay tablets by the ancient Egyptians. In this first illustrated history of the cook book, Eric Quayle gives us glimpses into antiquity and goes on to trace the development of the genre from soon after the invention of printing almost to the present day. In the course of this culinary tour, we learn of the cooking methods of Shakespeare's contemporaries and of the gargantuan meals of the Victorians ("take five pounds of best butter and four dozen eggs"). Recipes and illustrations are taken from early cook books on both sides of the Atlantic, with due tribute paid to the great European examples. With its recipes culled from the pages used by our grandmothers and their grandmothers before them, Old Cook Books is more than the definitive bibliographical history: it is almost an adventure playground for those willing to try their hands at "Umble Umble Pie', 'Everlasting Syllabubs', `Oyster Soup', `Hush Puppies', or even `Shaker Spinach with Rosemary'. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 142078
