Aspects sentimentaux du front anglais
Paris: Dorbon-Ainé (1916).
Wartime memoir written by the British born celebrity chef. Secretary to Henri Gauthier-Villars (who called him "a little swindler and a huge homosexual") he wrote a number of books on cookery and contributed to Jacques Fersen's Akademos (see Sidney Place below). Privately printed edition of 300 copies (#48), this example without the etchings by Laboureur. Very good in decorative covers, spine a bit worn and chipped, light fading.
