Product description

Vegetarian and Simple Diet - Col. A. R. Kenney-Herbert (1905) - Edwardian cookery book
 
A scarce original second edition of this comprehensive early vegetarian cookbook (originally published 1904), in which the author - a colonel in the Indian Army in the days of the British Raj - has "carefully recast" the standard food preparation methods "in order to meet the wants of those from whose tables fish, flesh and fowl are excluded", and has "tried to show that vegetarian diet need not be marked by ascetic plainness, nor restricted to a few uninteresting dishes; that pleasant variety is by no means difficult to bring about, and that the possibilities within the reach of the vegetarian cook are really encouraging."
 
Unsurprisingly in view of its date, this genuine early 20th century volume shows assorted signs of age (see condition description below); it nonetheless remains complete and fully legible, and would make an interesting addition to a collection of old cookery / recipe books.
