First published in 1861. Facsimile of the very rare first impression of the first edition with its splendid colour plates. This was Isabella Beeton's collection of the recipes that appeared in her husband's The English Woman's Domestic Magazine which ran for the three years (1859-61). It was to become the best-known cookery book in the English language, and covers not only cookery but also the management and duties of servants, legal affairs, medical matters and more. All recipes were edited, rewritten and personally tested by Isabella Beeton.
