London: Faber and Faber LTD, 1944. Revised Edition. Hardcover. 120 pages. 19 x 13 cm. Heath brings his incredible ability to conjure a good meal out of very little here in this slim volume. He notes: " Here are a few soups, out of the many, which may appeal to confirmed soup-eaters and perhaps help to convert others to a gastronomic practice that deserves nothing but praise... Home-made soups are inexpensive, far cheaper in the long run than tinned or bottled ones... (and) to echo an advertisement familiar by now, are good for you."
Lovely woodblock illustration on title page. Previous owner's embossed stamp on title page. Interior clean, rear board with some smudges. Yellow cloth covered boards. Good. Item #3377
