Typically attractive Derrydale production; "Eugene Virginius Connett, 3rd, the founder and principal owner of Derrydale, was a publishing genius. After graduating from Princeton in 1912, he briefly joined the family beaver hat-making business before striking out on his own as a fledgling book publisher and printer in Manhattan in 1927. Connett sought out the most respected outdoor writers of his day and convinced them to become Derrydale authors. He combined their words with the output of equally well regarded artists and illustrators whose drawings, paintings, and etchings were beautifully reproduced on the fine Italian paper that Connett favoured. Today these books and prints are the most valuable and most collectible sporting books and prints ever published in North America." (Jed Lyons, president of the press in his preface to James Cummins Catalogue 113, The Derrydale Press). An excellent copy. Frazier B-19-D; Macro 596; Siegel 25. Bookseller Inventory # 92522

Item Description: New York: The Derrydale Press, 1939, 1939. 2 volumes, octavo. Original burgundy cloth-backed boards, red buckram sides, titles gilt to spines. Bookseller's ticket to volume 1. Spine somewhat dulled, ends and corners rubbed, cloth sides faintly marked, entirely clean within; very good condition. Humorous photographic frontispieces to both volumes. First edition, first printing; limited to 1,250 copies, both volumes numbered 98. The first volume is warmly inscribed by the author, "With mine good wishes, always, Charles H. Baker". Charles H. Baker was a writer for Esquire magazine, based in Florida, and was known as the "Town & Country Gourmet". He was regarded by the Hemingway set as the pinnacle of knowledge in all matters of the good life, notably food, drink, and travel, to the better enjoyment of which this production is dedicated. The book takes the form of a gastronomic world-tour, wittily described with anecdote and an excellent turn of phrase. The recipes themselves, drawn from around the world, are in fact none the worse for their comedic conveyance. Bookseller Inventory # 83712
