Hardcover first edition, first printing in unclipped original dust jacket. Clean orange cloth boards with black lettering on spine. No fraying or wear; very slight bump to both board fore-edges. Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound. Pages are clean but there is one instance of underlining a sentence in ink. Illustrated with drawings by Francesca Greene. 138 pages with index. Dust jacket is not price clipped, light soiling and edge wear; now enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. "From the most formidable and elegant of dinners in a dilapidated chateau owned by the Comte de Reuil (a six-course meal that started off with oysters and Chablis Moutonne 1915 and proceeded to Epinards a La Creme and Napoleon Brandy) to a New year's Day lunch at the Fenchurch St. Paul Rectory (in 'The Nine Tailors', starting with Shepherd's Pie and going on to Farmhouse Cheddar and Biscuits and Bass in Bottles), the menus follow Peter as he moves through his adventures." - from the front inside flap!
