(**NEW ARRIVAL**) (Food Writing) Brody, Iles. On the Tip of My Tongue.

Jacket. First Edition. NY: Greenberg, [1944].

A wonderful collection of recipes and delicious anecdotes gathered from great chefs around the world and from the recollections of epicures. The chapter on eggs starts off with an account of “How the Duke of Windsor feigned illness to get Omelettes au Caviare in Vienna.” On seafood, there is an essay entitled “About the beguiling intricacy of oyster eating, the ceremony of swallowing them in Marseilles’ Vieux Port.” Darkening to jacket spine, chipping to jacket spine ends, 4" piece of jacket lacking from upper rear jacket panel, else good.
