Easily still in VGC overall.. Privately procured from a dealer (originally from the library of John L. Marks, Chtppendale, Earlwood) at a Bowral bookfair then further sold on to the store in early 2023, this delightful treatise is amost timeless after nearly 120years with still viable recipes by this famous English journalist, editor and writer. One of the most famous cookery books ever written in beautiful condition with ample obvious patina of age.
