The housewives of the old world have much to teach us in thrift, especially in the kitchen. Italian cooking - not that of the large hotel or restaurant, but the cucina casalinga of the roadside hostelry and the home where the mother, or some deft handmaid, trained in the art from infancy, is priestess at the tiny charcoal stove, is at once so frugal and so delicious that we do well to study it with close attention. [from the foreword]. .
Julia Lovejoy Cuniberti , Stated 1st Edition - 1917 (not a reprint!) A lovely book, printed on a fine laid rag paper, with the watermark Alexandra. Written and published during the First World War, sold to aid the families of Italian soldiers.
CONDITION: . Light sunning to spine, light wear to covers. Overall very good for this age cook book.
