London: Frederick Warne, 1867. Hardcover. 3 3/4 x 2 3/4", (9.5cm x 6.5cm), 95pp. A volume in the "Warne's Bijou Books" series, with a colored lithographic frontispiece and title (both with vertical creases), and a printed title page with a small scrape that obliterates a few letters in the publisher's name and location at the foot of the page. A delightful text with information on how to behave while eating, as well as how to portion out a saddle of mutton (and many other cuts as well). Light wear, faint vertical crease, many b/w illustrations in the text. The brittle title page paper is cracking at top and bottom. Bound in blind- and gilt-stamped brown cloth covering flexible boards, all edges gilt, spine edges showing wear. The picture in gilt on the front cover shows a man and a woman at their dinner table. The last page gives a listing of Warne's Bijou Books (at that point, 21 of them).
