Revised from the first edition, which was published in 1990 in only 150 copies. This revised edition includes numerous new illustrations. This work is an expanded and revised bibliography of the British and Continental component of the Lilly Library's Gernon Collection of Books on Food and Drink, located at Indiana University. A MATTER OF TASTE is the companion volume to AMERICAN BOOKS ON FOOD AND DRINK. This volume also includes culinary works of Canada, India, Japan, Mexico, and the Philippines. This work is a must have for all gastronomic and culinary historians and collectors as it contains full bibliographical information in addition to annotations and notes. A MATTER OF TASTE also features more than 200 line engravings of 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century dinner scenes, title pages, and frontispieces from important culinary works.
