DE PRATZ, Claire   


This author also wrote "French home cooking' edited by Day Monroe and first published in New York by E. P. Dutton and Co in 1925. Several editions followed. The same title, "French home cooking', appeared again in 1958, this time edited by Georgia Lingafelt and published in London by Arco Publications. In some of the recipes in the 1958 version one can still see a link with the recipes in "French dishes for English tables' published in 1908 and described in the entry below.

      LB, OB and NN date the book [1908].
      OPo(F) has two copies. Although both are bound in red cloth and have the same image on the front of the binding, there are slight differences in the colouring of the lettering and in the border surrounding the image and lettering. On the front of the binding of one copy, for example, the title and author are printed in black on a white background and the border is made up of black, horizontal lines; on the spine the title, author and publisher are printed in gold. The other copy is more modest: the title and author on the front of the binding and the title, author and publisher on the spine are all printed in white; the border on the front is a single, black line.% American editions: NUCat lists Philadelphia: D. McKay, [1908].
