Books & Cooks-

We've got a nice new book in this morning- "The Book Lover's Cookbook" by Shaunda Kennedy Wenger & Janet Kay Jensen. A hardcover published by Ballantine in 2003 for $21.95, we can offer a few for $10.00 while they last. Here's the publisher's blurb-

Just imagine—a literary and gastronomical feast contained in a single book! This lovely volume features 200 recipes that were cooked up, served, or mentioned in favorite novels and works of non-fiction, all accompanied by an excerpt from the book in which it was featured. For breakfast there are Mrs. Dalby's Buttermilk Scones (from James Herriot's All Things Bright and Beautiful and Mammy's Yams from Gone With the Wind, while main dishes include Any Beginner's Sweet-and-Sour Chicken (Barbara Kingsolver's The Bean Trees) and Empanadas (Isabel Allende's Daughter of Fortune). The Book Lover's Cookbook also includes such literary specialties as Mrs. Leibowitz's Lentil-Vegetable Soup (Isak Dinesen's Babette's Feast), Ruby's Potato Salad (Charles Frazier's Cold Mountain), Traditional Southern Crackling Corn Bread (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer), Merry Punch (Pride and Prejudice), Pure Pleasure Apple Pie (Garrison Keillor's "Lutheran Pie" from We Are Still Married), and the tempting treat that trumped sibling loyalty in C.S. Lewis's The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Turkish Delight.

We have a new issue of our catalog Books on Silver & Silversmiths going into the mail early next week. If you'd like a copy, please send us an email.

We have some interesting Hunting & Fishing and Hunting & Fishing Art books up for auction on Ebay at the moment, and will be adding more in the next week or two, including some nice Derrydale Press items. Please click our "Current Ebay Auctions" link on the sidebar for more information.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
