About This Item

London: Printed by Ja. Fl. for Rich. Marriot, and are to be sold at his shop in St. Dunstans Church-Yard, 1650. 16mo. (14 x 9 cm.), [4], 188, [9 ], pages. Index. Containing: [1.] A new book of cookerie; [2.] The second booke of cookerie. Stated "the seventh time printed, with new additions"; Notaker remarks that the text has remained unchanged since the third edition (1628/29) which itself is the first appearance of the grouping of texts found here. John Murrell (active 17th century) "is considered the first person to reveal the important changes that took place in French cuisine in the beginning of the seventeenth century" (Notaker referencing Lehman). Some paper repair to edges of leaves throughout, most not affecting text. Few leaves (Table of Contents) at rear with significant restoration and loss to text. In full brown calf, with some of original boards present; gilt-titled red morocco spine label. Contemporary ownership inscription to rear blank, "Anne Jones, her Book". Additional ownership inscription of Jones to edge of leaf, and inscription. Good, but also attractive. Rare. [OCLC locates seven copies of this edition; Notaker, Printed Cookbooks in Europe 526.6; Wing M3126; Early English Books 1641-1700 2853:2].
