[Cooking]. Ranhofer, Charles.

The Epicurean: A Complete Treatise of Analytical and Practical Studies on the Culinary Art... Making a Franco-American Culinary Encyclopedia.

R. Ranhofer New York 1905 Quarto, pp. 1183. Indexed, illustrated with 800 b/w plates.
A very nice copy of the second edition of this popular, self-published cookbook by the former chef of Delmonico's. Contains over 500 complete bills of fare, menus from Delmonico's for the years 1861-1894, recipes for all bill of fare items, and basic cooking and preparation techniques for numerous food items. Anticipating Julia Child by nearly 70 years, this is a wonderful and exhaustive compendium of French and American cooking from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In great condition for its age, uncommon in this edition.
