Which far exceeds any Thing of the Kind yet published. Containing...etc etc, To which are added, By Way of Appendix, One hundred and fifty New and Useful Receipts, And a copious Index to this and all the Octavo Editions. Never before Published. By a Lady. The Sixth Edition, with very large Additions. Sixth edition, 1758. Hardback. 8vo. i - vi, [vii - xxx], 1 - 384, [385 - 408]pp. Modern brown calf, spine with green calf gilt lettered label. This is an authorized edition, as indicated by the facsimile of the author's signature to the headpiece of the first page of the text. Up until the fourth edition, there was no author's name beyond the 'by a lady' style of the title page and James Boswell attributed the authorship to Dr John Hill in his 'Life of Johnson'. Glasse's book ran to twenty editions during the eighteenth century and was arguably the most popular cookery book of its time. Although many of the recipes came from other cookery books her work did include a significant amount of original material, including the first recipes in English for curry as well as three recipes for pilau, she was also the first to use the term 'Yorkshire pudding" in print. Book in very good condition. Repair to upper corner of T7. Some occasional creasing to upper corners. Maclean p58.
