Lovel Food, by Ruth Lowinsky. A Cookery Notebook with table decorations invented & drawn by Thomas Lowinsky. Demy 8vo, pp.127, The Nonesuch Press, 16 Great James Street, London, 1931.

Number 89 of 500 copies set in Caslon and SB Open and printed on Batchelor Kelmscott handmade paper at the Fanfare Press. 10 full-page drawings and one smaller, plus a decoration on the title-page, by Thomas Lowinsky. Quarter brown buckram gold-blocked with roundels on both edges of the spine, brick-red cloth sides, gilt spine titling, top edge trimmed, others uncut. Dust-jacket (not usually present) a bit chipped at extremities. A very good copy indeed.

"The menus and recipes in this book are all cuisines bourgeoise of rather a high order." There was also an unlimited edition on machine made paper. (Dreyfus 79, Myers 14)
