Intro. by Felix Benoit. Illus. incl. color portrait of Point. 9 illustrations by Dunoyer de Segonzac. Mustard cloth, pictorial cover label, original slipcase. First Edition. Paris: Flammarion, 1969.

Warmly inscribed & SIGNED by Mme. Point on the half-title. Fernand Point died at age 57, in 1995, after running perhaps the most famous restaurant in France, La Pyramide. While he sadly never lived to see his opus published, some consider it to be the world's most important cookbook, and Mme. Point continued to proudly sign copies for guests at the restaurant on occasion. Fine; scarce in original slipcase.
