I had a sublime meal at the Chez Panisse Café, a classic lunch at Bouchon and spent lots of time wandering the many bookshops of the Bay area. I’ve included some of the treasures I unearthed in this small end-of-year offering, with a promise of some interesting catalogues coming in early 2009. I’ve recently acquired a lovely library of cookbooks which will be inventoried over the holiday break and which I will showcase in the first catalogues of 2009 – Catalogue Five in early February will be dedicated to first editions of the classics, Catalogue Six to international and exotic cuisines. Let me know about books on your wish list so that I can set them aside for you as I go. Happy holidays to you all. The shop will be closed from December 25 th – January 5 th , but I will be monitoring email, and am happy to open by appointment during this time. Barbara

Packed with information, from sound advice on utensils and cookery basics to a vast collection of recipes arranged to accompany an alphabetical list of ingredients. Thus there are five recipes for anchovies plus referrals to six others later in the book. Under lemons there are no less than seventeen recipes plus six referrals. Great book, still in production, much sought after in this early format. 5. Alexander, Stephanie, A SHARED TABLE. 4to, 1st edition; pp 248.

Contributors included Professor Harvey Sutton (Diet), Dr Grace Cuthbert (Feeding the Baby), Lorna Byrne (Country Kitchen), Olwen Francis (Canteen Cookery, Entertaining).

22. Boonstra & Nuijens, Ewoudt & Rene, BAD FOOD GONE WORSE. Essay by Tyler Whisnand. Limited edition of 1000 copies; unpaginated. colour photos; stapled card, near fine, KesselsKramer, Amsterdam, 2006. $15. Possibly the oddest of food-related books we've ever listed - more art installation than anything else. Boonstra & Nuijens have photographed the aged and distorted food photos that are often seen in take away outlets, none of which would entice customers to order the food represented. 23. Boulestin, X.Marcel, RECIPES OF BOULESTIN. Selected from the Best of Boulestin, Simple French Cooking For English Homes, The Evening Standard Book of Menus, What Shall We Have Today? and A Second Helping. 8vo, 1st Ed.(The Estate of X.M.Boulestin); xi,pp.258. hardcover , Edgewear to d/w, crease to ffep, else v.good, Heinemann, London, 1971. $35. "French cooking is not, as some English people seem to think, complicated, rich and expensive..." Thus begins Boulestin in the preface to his first book, "Simple French Cooking for English Homes" (1923) and also introducing this rewarding collection from his classic cookery books, now so hard to find in their early editions. 24. Bracken, Peg, THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK. 7th Impr.; xii,pp.146. Decorated by Hilary Knight; hardcover , d/w worn with several losses, now repaired and protected, contents v good, Arlington, London, 1964. $30. English edition edited by Ruth Martin of this amusing American bestseller. Contains about 200 recipes. Purists would loathe them but some have a lot going for them if you're short of time - or inclination. 25. Brewster, Pam (ed), FINE FOOD FROM COUNTRY AUSTRALIA. Recipes from Australia's best country restaurants and guesthouses. 4to, 1st edition; pp 320. Photography by Oliver Strewe; hardcover glazed boards, near fine in d/w, Random House, Sydney, 1996. $30. Brillat-Savarin, Jean Anthelme, THE PHYSIOLOGY OF TASTE. Or Meditations on Transcendental Gastronomy.

The author, Food Editor for Vogue publications in Australia, has long had a devoted following. Describing herself as a "bush cook", a reference to her early married life on a sheep station, her book ranges from old-fashioned country fare to modern food at its most elegant. An enjoyable mixture of anecdote and recipes. Scarce 29. Camrass, Zoe, THE ONLY COOKBOOK. 4to, pp 224. colour photos b/w instructional drawings; hardcover black cloth, v good in price-clipped d/w, Colporteur Press, Sydney, 1982. $25. Really useful book, with detailed instructions and drawings on tasks like skinning and jointing a rabbit, carving a turkey, preparing offal, as well as many good recipes. 30. Ceserani & Kinton Victor & Ronald, PRACTICAL COOKERY. Fifth edition; pp 314. glazed boards, Publisher's stamp on ffep else near fine, Edward Arnold, London, 1981. $22. Cheng, S K, SHANGHAI RESTAURANT CHINESE COOKERY BOOK. 16mo, 1st edition; pp 102. original cloth, some light stains and edgewear to boards, else v good, clean copy, Shanghai Restaurant, London, 1936. $50. Interesting to read this to gain some idea of the food served in an early 20th century Chinese restaurant, for which this is a promotional publication. Recipes seem authentic and some probably not intended to be replicated by the home cook. Birds Nest in Whole Chicken for instance requires 1 oz birds nests, which are sewn into a whole boned chicken (which is first rinsed out with gin!) and steamed in 'Primary Soup' (essentially chicken stock). Fascinating 31. 32. Chong, Elizabeth, THE FIRST HAPPINESS. Chinese Cooking for Australia. 1st edition; pp 238. colour plates & b/w sketches; hardcover orange cloth, v.good in d/w, Macmillan, Melbourne, 1982. $35.

David, Elizabeth, FRENCH COUNTRY COOKING. pp.203. Ill. with drgs. by John Minton; paperback, Nice fresh copy, very little used, Penguin, London, 1976. $20. No one else wrote about food with quite the same degree of elegance and wit as the late Mrs. David. "A certain amount of nonsense is talked about the richness of the food to be found in French homes." she begins, in this, her second book, and immediately the cadences of her prose recall some other famous openings - Austen and Charlotte Bronte come to mind. Delicious recipes, of course. 35. David, Elizabeth, HARVEST OF THE COLD MONTHS. The Social History of Ice and Ices. 1st American Ed.; xvii,pp.413. Pict.eps. & many ills., incl.12 col.plates; v good in d/w, Viking Press, New York, 1994. $60. A fascinating study of ice and snow and its role in gastronomic history from ancient times to the Edwardian age. Not a cookery book, this was Mrs. David's last work. She was completing it when she died in 1992. Jill Norman, her literary trustee, has skillfully edited the work. 36. David, Elizabeth, SUMMER COOKING.
