Pennell, Elizabeth Robins. My Cookery Books.

Illus. with 28 mounted facsimile title pages of antiquarian cookery books. Large quarto, cloth-backed marbled boards, paper spine label. No. 310 of 330 copies designed by Bruce Rogers and printed on fine rag paper by the Riverside Press. First Edition. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1903.

Pennell wrote several books on the gustatory pleasures of gastronomy, including The Delights of Eating, and The Feasts of Autolycus: The Diary of a Greedy Woman. She collected some of the most important cookbooks to have been printed, and describes them eloquently here. Near fine; a scarce book.
