About This Item

Boston: From J. Bumstead's Printing Office, 1798.. xxiv,[25]-264pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, rebacked, with slightly too flashy spine label. Scattered and significant browning and foxing, occasional marginal nicks and chips, a few scattered light stains, 1802 gift inscription on somewhat stained blank prelim, private name stamp in upper margin of title; just a good, sound copy. Denoted the "Third American Edition" of an English translation of SECRETS CONCERNANT LES ARTS ET METIERS, published originally in London in 1775. ESTC records a Norwich, CT printing in 1795, but no other North American printing that would serve as the other precedent. The usual substantial collection of recipes for edibles and drinkables, formulae for painting, etching, cleaning, dying and other household needs, along with modes of preserving fruits. ESTC locates 14 copies. ESTC W28501. EVANS 34913. RINK 157.
