A gem of a livre d'artiste, with dozens of recipes by the Chevet family--a dynasty of French chefs from the time of the French Revolution until a century later--printed here for the first time. Illustrated with 11 original color aquatints by Annapia Antonini. From a total edition of 150 copies printed on fine Rives wove paper and signed by the artist in the justification, this is ONE OF ONLY 15 COPIES WITH A SUITE OF THE 11 COLOR AQUATINTS ON IMPERIAL JAPANESE PAPER, EACH ONE SIGNED IN PENCIL BY THE ARTIST. Large 8vo. Loose as issued in wraps, housed in the original board chemise and slipcase. FINE AND BRIGHT, WITH NO DEFECTS. A lavish production. One of very few cookbooks published as a livre d'artiste with original prints.
