Author: Thomas Shoesmith
Publisher: London, Dean and Murray, c.1841
Containing upwards of One Hundred Receipts. For Making All kings of Biscuits, Pastry, Gingerbread &c &c
Fourth edition, corrected and improved.
12mo., attractively bound in recent quarter calf with border in blind and marbled paper sides, printed paper label on upper cover, uncut. The text was obviously disbound for some time and the outside pages are a little grubby, a small brown stain runs throughout the top edge of the first few leaves but does not affect the text, generally a very good copy.
Shoesmith was himself a pastry cook and biscuit-baker. Cakes, tarts and biscuits of every description are included in this small book, as well as jams and jellies, muffins, trifle, rusks, crumpets, custards &c.
