Seventy-Five Receipts, for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats. The Tenth Edition
by Leslie, Miss [Eliza]
Boston: Munroe and Francis, and Joseph Francis, 1838. Octavo, vi, 107, 8, 4 pages. Ads. Tenth edition, revised. A remarkable cookbook, in that it is considered the first to adopt the concise recipes formula, throughout, of a name, a list of ingredients, and a series of steps. The author did this with the intention of making the recipes, "intelligible to servants and persons of the most moderate capacity." In later cookbooks, Leslie abandoned the format and returned to a more narrative approach to recipe writing. Recipes include a Carageen (Sea-moss) Blanc-mange, Spiced Oysters, and several methods to make Preserved Pineapple. Some moderate foxing throughout. Rebound in full green calf, gilt-ruled and spine decorated, with a red morocco gilt-titled spine label. Very good. [OCLC locates eleven copies; Cagle 476; Lowenstein 225]. (Inventory #: 5168)
