Benjamin Franklin on The Art of Eating: Together with the Rules of Health & Long Life & the Rules to Find out a Fit Measure of Meat & Drink, with Several Recipes
by: Benjamin Franklin (au); Gilbert Chinard (au); Roy Goodman (in)
A Special Limited Edition to Celebrate the 300th Anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s Birth. The accidental discovery in the Franklin Papers of a set of cooking recipes & the many allusions to food scattered through Ben Franklin’s various works & letters have led to an inquiry the results of which may throw some new light on a little studied aspect of the Sage of Philadelphia. This concise book, a special edition of the 1958 original, contains an essay on “Benjamin Franklin On the Art of Eating” by Gilbert Chinard; a collection of Franklin’s “Rules [for Eating] & Recipes”; & an introduction by Roy Goodman, assistant librarian & curator of printed materials at the Amer. Philosophical Soc. (APS). Illustrations. A great keepsake at a great price!
