Derrydale Press, 1937, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition
DE GOUY, L.P. The Derrydale Cook Book of Fish and Game [in 2 volumes], New York: Derrydale Press, 1937. Octavo, first edition, copy No. 1102 of 1,250 printed by Eugene Connett (the Derrydale founder), pp. xx, 308; xxvi, 330, maroon cloth boards with green lettering and rules on spines, Derrydale hunting-goddess logo stamped on upper boards inside gilt and green frames. I haven't tried any of these recipes but they look like they would fit right in at an upscale 21st-century gastro-pub, although De Gouy created them many decades ago. See entry No. 114 in Henry Siegel's Derrydale bibliography. Also see Axford p. 113. Condition of these books: Very good but lacking slipcase. Boards show minor edge wear. Leaves clean and tight, age-toned, a few small stains at edges. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 2-volume set (complete).
