Eighth edition, corrected and improved by JJ Machet, “distiller an confectioner, at Paris”; Demy 12mo (18cm); (2), xxiv, (262), (2) pp; engraved frontispiece of Pomona with a pot and a pineapple (with marginal staining and light foxing) and ten plates (three of which are folding) showing how to lay out the dishes on the table in the correct manner; dark brown calf spine over drab paper-covered boards, spine and boards well rubbed though gilt lettering clear and bright on the spine; bookplate of Rev. Robert Harkness; possibly lacking a leaf or two of adverts at the back. A good, tight copy, rather battered but holding up well. 

In 1757 an Italian pastry cook named Domenico Negri opened a confectionery shop at 7-8 Berkeley Square under the sign of “The Pot and Pineapple” where Frederick Nutt had an apprenticeship. At that time, the pineapple was a symbol of luxury and often used in logos by confectioners. Negri’s impressive trade card not only featured a pineapple, but it advertised that he was in the business of making English, French, and Italian wet and dry sweetmeats.  Frederick Nutt was apprenticed to the great confectioner.

London : printed for Samuel Leigh, Strand; and Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, Paternoster-Row, 1819.
