By A Lady [Rundell, Maria]. Formed Upon Principles of Economy: And Adapted to The Use of Private Families. London: John Murray, Fleet Street, 1807. Second Edition. 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. Lightly foxed and toned throughout. Cropped with no loss to text but small loss to frontispiece. [OXFORD pg. 135] [CAGLE 971]. Rebound in brown boards, title in blind on pale label and tooled double-rule gold bands to match original binding. Very good. Hardcover.
