£250.00Price

First edition and first print published by Constable in 1929. This is a very good + copy. The wrapper has some chips to the corners and loss to the top of the spine. There is browning to the spine. It is not price clipped and is a rare survivor, seldom seen. The book fairs very well with little wear to speak of and no foxing. Front free end paper has a light browning patch. Overall a very good + copy. 

 

The Art....is an early guide to food and drink by wine expert Andre L Simon. There is a wonderful frontispiece after Daumier. Covers food and drink, and when i say drink i mean wine lots of it with a bit of sherry chucked in.
