They have been culled from such sources as Mrs. Beetonís Book of Household Mgmt. & the compend. of Cookery & Reliable Recipes first pub. in 1890, & adapted for modern tastes. Each of the 80 recipes is accompanied by an excerpt from a Holmes mystery & fascinating lore about the food & Victorian times. Illus.
