Sm. 8vo., ? Fourth Edition, pin holes in front free endpaper and half-title, some light marginal age-staining; original boards, boards and backstrip lettered in black, neatly recased, a very good, firm copy. With 3pp publisher's catalogue at end, and two small items of related ephemera loosely inserted. 'This volume meets a want long felt. Vegetables, Fruits, etc, constitute the half of our daily food: the present work is upon the best possible preparation of this half. Cookery-books exist in abundance; but they relate almost exclusively to the preparation of dishes from animal food' (Publisher's advertisement). Smith's delightful compilation was first published in 1866. There was a second issue in 1876 and a third in 1884, so this is probably the fourth edition. The last edition may be that of 1890. Very scarce, especially in this condition.
