The Knight Family Cookbook.

SKU: 15125

Preface by Richard Knight. Introduction by Gillian Dow. This is one of the most delectable books you'll ever own. A facsimile of the cookbook that was compiled on behalf of Thomas Knight for his sister, passed down to Edward Austen Knight. Manuscript C. 1793. An important manuscript in its own right, there are also recipes here Jane Austen may have tasted as she visited her brother's house. Marbled cover and end pages, high quality paper. Even though they were written so long ago, I find I can read them quite well. Own a piece of Austen history! Benefits Chawton House Library. Hb. 2014. Chawton House Press. NEW. $20.00
