"Isabella Mary Beeton (née Mayson; 14 March 1836 – 6 February 1865) , also known as Mrs Beeton, was an English journalist, editor and writer. Her name is particularly associated with her first book, the 1861 work Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management. She was born in London and, after schooling in Islington, north London, and Heidelberg, Germany, she married Samuel Orchart Beeton, an ambitious publisher and magazine editor. In 1857, less than a year after the wedding, Isabella began writing for one of her husband's publications, The Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine. She translated French fiction and wrote the cookery column, though all the recipes were plagiarised from other works or sent in by the magazine's readers. In 1859 the Beetons launched a series of 48-page monthly supplements to The Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine; the 24 instalments were published in one volume as Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management in October 1861, which sold 60,000 copies in the first year. Isabella was working on an abridged version of her book, which was to be titled The Dictionary of Every-Day Cookery, when she died of puerperal fever in February 1865 at the age of 28."

2 Fisher, M. F. K. Here Let Us Feast
New York Viking Press 1946 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Very Good 
This book is in Very Good condition and is lacking the accompanying dust jacket. The book covers have some lightish edge wear, rubbing and beginning fraying to the spine ends, corners and edges. There is some toning to spots of the covers a and several scratches to the top rear corner of the book cover. The text pages are clean and bright. All edges of the text block have toning / yellowing. This is a solid reading copy. "This book is about feasting. It is a collection of excerpts - sentences, and paragraphs, and even pages - all of them concerned with man's fundamental need to celebrate the high points of his life by eating and drinking. It is true that such a subject is not always connected, perforce, with the fine art of gastronomy, but still it is honest and intrinsically necessary in any human scheme, any plan for the future, any racial memory."
