Julia Child revolutionized celebrity chefdom, becoming the most recognized culinary artist of the last century. During WWII, she served honorably as a top-secret researcher. This position and her marriage to Officer Paul Cushing Child brought her to Paris, a move which shaped her culinary career. While living in France, she became obsessed with French cuisine and published her first monumental text: Mastering the Art of French Cooking. This great culinary text was critically and commercially successful. It is largely credited for the popularization of French cuisine in the United States. Child went on to publish many more works, host television broadcasts, and open her own restaurant. In this two-volume anniversary set, Child’s work is beautifully paired with Sidonie Coryn’s original illustrations. It is a spectacular publication of Child’s greatest work.

These anniversary editions, later printings are in very fine condition. In the original red cloth boards, fine. Text blocks fine. In the original dust jackets, fine. With the original slipcase, fine.

A fine two-volume set of Julia Child’s masterpiece.
