The Alice B. Toklas Cook Book; Illustrations by Sir Francis Rose

London: Michael Joseph, 1954. Rose, Sir Francis. First U.K. Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 288 pages. 23.5 x 16 cm. Born is San Francisco in 1877, Toklas made her way to France after the 1906 Earthquake. Toklas arrived in Paris in 1907 and immediately met Gertrude Stein - they would spend the rest of Stein's life living and working together. In this Cookbook/Memoir, Toklas writes about French food with American sensibilities in mind - for instance, as an American, one substitutes ingredients when they are not on hand. Unlike the American edition, this one contains the Haschich Fudge recipe. Boards and interior clean. Dust wrapper stained with chips and closed tears. Cream cloth covered boards. Very good, in good dust wrapper. Item #2584

Price: $1,000.00
