The Cook's Oracle
This edition of WIlliam Kitchiner's The Cook's Oracle, the American verison of the seventh edition published in 1830, is a complete reference of English cookery in the nineteeth century. An optician, inventor of telescopes, amateur musician and exceptional cook, Kitchiner was famous in the 19th century, both in England and America. In this work, he presents the recipes he cooked himself (the Prince Regent, later King George IV of England, was a frequent dinner guest), as well as directions on how to cook these recipes in the most efficient and economical way.
