956 pp. Illus. incl. numerous lush chromolithograph plates of breads and baked goods, shop interiors and factory exteriors. Also with a pop-up bread oven with movable trays of bread in rear! Gilt-stamped pictorial blue cloth. Stuttgart: Felix Krais, 1901.
Gorgeously illustrated with breads and baked goods of the world (each plate depicting breads of a particular country), as well as black and white photographs of bread festivals, prominent bakers, modern & ancient bakery equipment, etc. The pop-up oven in rear is remarkable, and complete - a rare and remarkable survival. Rubbing to spine ends, contents slightly shaken, else very good.
