Full contemporary calf, worn at corners, hinges slightly cracked. Extensive pen marks to front endpapers, book is quite shaken and shows signs of having been re-glued with some adhesions in the gutter as a result, a number of quires loose and with wear to outer margins, lacking pages 7-10. (xii), 390 (of 394), front and rear blanks present. Lacking the second part (not related to cookery) Avec de Beaux Secret Gallans.

The extremely scarce first edition of a much reprinted and translated book of secrets often (likely erroneously) attributed to Nicolas Lemery. The cookery section features a remarkable selection of international meats: Bologna Sausage, Milanese Cervelats, Mainz Ham, Piemontese Pork, Saucissons from Lombardy, Polish Pike, and a mix of other recipes for cakes, fixing olive oil that has turned rancid, and, of course, blancmanger.
