Second edition, first published 1881. Drawn from a series of articles by "Wyvern", doyen of Anglo-Indian cuisine, on entremets sucrés published in the Madras Times offering to extend the "native cook's" limited repertoire of "presentable sweets" with a practicable selection of "jellies, creams, pastry, soufflés, pancakes and fritters, puddings, ices, cakes, preserves, dessert, and miscellaneous trifles... with a few words concerning wines, and cooling drinks" (Prologue). Uncommon, particularly so in the original cloth, here neatly restored.

Condition

A little used, somewhat rubbed and stained externally, occasional marginal pencil marks, finger- and food-soiling - the section on jellies seems to have come in for particular attention - light browning overall, remains about very good, with character.
