Original leather rebacked (not recently)with spine laid down. Binding a little worn, with edgewear to extremities,but binding sound. Contents are v.good with the exception of occasional light rust marks. The top 5cm of ffep is loose and one section (around recipe 574) is slightly loose, but secure. A nice copy. Probably the best of the early Australian cookery books. Hannah Maclurcan, nee Phillips, at 17 was managing the Club Hotel at Toowoomba for her father, and after her marriage, the Queen's Hotel at Townsville. Later she presided over the old Wentworth Hotel in Sydney, which had a reputation for its fine food and general tone. Her recipes, which often make use of local fruits, game and seafood, are excellent, and her instructions precise and practical. The first edition of this important work was published earlier the same year as this, the second. Scarce.
