How it works


Known to be the great French chef's last book and to have been written in 1934, our book has "copyright 1934 Ernest Flammarion" at the front and "depot legal: 1948" at the back, indicating either that this is not the first edition or that publication of the book was delayed.

In either case, the book (703 pp, 2500 recipes) is rare. Our copy has been rebound, using the original green cloth-boards and spine laid down on the green Skivertex strengthening, with new endpapers.

The contents are unmarked, with the early pages sunned and the rest of the text evenly toned towards the edges.
