About this Item

Early printing of this tremendously popular guide to Spanish cookery, encyclopedic in its scope. Engineer, journalist, and notable gastronome Muro (1839?1897) supplied the recipes in narrative paragraphs; many show a distinct French influence. The text is illustrated with small wood engravings of cuts of meat, serving dishes, kitchen equipment, etc., and features a facsimile of Preciada Sics?'s handwritten recipe for salsa ?rabe, with several leaves of advertisements at the back printed on blue paper. This is the third edition, printed shortly after the first of the previous year; the best-selling cookbook eventually went through 34 editions. 8vo (21.6 cm, 8.5"). Frontis., [6], x, 862, [2], 109, [11] pp.; illus. Bitting 335 (for 1895 ed.). 20th-century quarter brown pebbled leather over brown morocco?covered sides, front cover and spine with gilt-stamped title information, spine with gilt-stamped raised bands, red silk bookmark present and intact. Title-page starting to loosen slightly. Pages age-toned; a very few recipes with pencilled marks of emphasis, pages otherwise clean. => An imposingly and sturdily bound example of this classic Spanish cookbook.
