(Chocolate) Auguste Jacoutot. Chocolate and Confectionery Manufacture


Illus. throughout with engravings and early photographs of chocolate-making machinery, as well as diagrams. Frontis. port. of the author. First Edition. London: Maclaren & Sons, c.1917.

A scarce English tome reviewing the manufacturing of chocolate, from cocoa bean selection to moulding, and confectionery, from sugar boiling apparatus to filling and polishing. Part II is about confectionery manufacture, and includes an equal number of fascinating facts and illustrations of candy-making equipment. Rubbing to spine ends & corners, otherwise very good.
