Library Co. of Phila.
Larder Invaded: Reflections on Three Centuries of Philadelphia Food and Drink
Mary Ann Hines (au); Gordon Marshall (au); William Woys Weaver (au)
Catalogue of a joint exhibition held 17 Nov. 1986-25 April 1987 in Philadelphia by The Library Co. of Philadelphia & The Historical Soc. of Pennsylvania. The exhibition drew upon their incredibly rich holdings in culinary history. The process of invading their larders & coming out with exciting finds was truly a process of discovery. Much of the material in this exhibition is housed in parts of their collections not susceptible to traditional cataloguing methods: that is, menus, trade cards, advertisements, photographs & ephemera. What was surprising & exciting was that there was so much concerning the culinary history of the city of Philadelphia & its surrounding areas. Black & white illustrations.
