Paris: Louis Tenré/Patris et Cie, 1833, 1810. Fifth Edition/First Edition. Hardcover. 454 pages/116 pages. 21 x 13 cm. La Cuisinier: Covering all aspects of cooking of post revolutionary France. Includes engraved frontispiece titled "intérieur d'une cuisine bien ordonnée" and 3 plates depicting ovens and cooking utensils. Albert was former chef de cuisine for Cardinal Fesch, Napoléon's Uncle. L'art de Conserver: Appert's signature on verso of title page. One folding plate. Appert, a confectioner, chef, and distiller, developed the first method of preserving food by enclosing it in airtight, sealed containers. (Pasteur later admitted his pasteurization process was largely derived from Appert's earlier methods.) Appert was rewarded with a prize of 12,000 francs by the French Directory (Napoléon) who needed to supply the growing armies with stable sustenance. [CAGLE 28, 36]. Some foxing to interior. Covers rubbed at corners, otherwise very good. Contemporary half-calf and decorated boards. Very good. Item #1847
