London: The Sylvan Press, 1948. Hardcover. 139 pages. 18 x 13 cm. From Thomas Gray, an English poet, letter-writter, and classical scholar - this new edition has been out of print for two hundred years. Its appeal to the revelation of ancient culinary mysteries while adding the attraction of the fact that the British Museum copy is the one owned and copiously annotated by the author.
