Product Information

By A Lady [Rundell, Maria]. Formed Upon Principles of Economy: And Adapted to The Use of Private Families. London: John Murray, Albemarle-Street, 1818. 348 pages, [9 plates]. As the story is told, Mrs. Rundell collected various recipes for cookery and household management for the benefit of her married daughters. After sending the manuscript to John Murray, an old family friend, it was published and became an immense success. Rundell modestly claimed that her book was not only essential to the “modern” middle-class housewife but a gift to the public. Rebacked, with possibly original marble boards, new taupe spine, tooled in gilt. Light foxing throughout. From the estate of Dan Samuel, 4th Viscount Samuel (1925-2014), grandson of Herbert Louis Samuel, 1st Viscount Samuel, High Commissioner of Palestine (1920-1925). Marbled boards, taupe spine, black morocco spine label in gilt. Very good. Hardcover.
