Aroma - The Magic of Essential Oils in Food and Fragrance, Aftel, Mandy & Patterson, Daniel
4 Aftel, Mandy & Patterson, Daniel Aroma - The Magic of Essential Oils in Food and Fragrance
New York Artisan 2004 1579652646 / 9781579652647 First Edition Cloth As New Very Slightly Worn 
Illustrated, large octavo, pp 216, a very good copy in very slightly rubbed dustwrapper. ["A New Way of Thinking About Food and Fragrance Turn a brilliant natural perfumer loose in a chef's kitchen and you get vanilla perfume, saffron, ginger, and blood orange bath salts, and a cucumber mist. Turn a brilliant chef loose in a perfumer's pantry and you get rose-infused steamed bass, peach-jasmine sorbet, and scores of other startlingly original recipes using floral and herbal aromas. Aroma permeates every cuisine, from ancient to modern, in every culture and at every level, but what this pioneering cookbook, by chef Daniel Patterson and perfumer Mandy Aftel, makes evident is that aroma, not taste, is our primary experience of food. Without aroma there is no flavor. By focusing on aroma, we intensify all aspects of food, and immeasurably enhance the experience of cooking and eating. While many cookbooks include some discussion of the use of aromatics in cooking, none concentrates on this essential link, where a few drops of a fragrant essence can make commonplace dishes memorable and good dishes great. Both the food recipes and the fragrance recipes in" Aroma" are powerfully alluring, whether it's a coffee cologne or an orange flower custard. Cumin vinaigrettes and lemon verbena mists waft off the page. Lavender makes a grilled steak sizzle while white ruffle makes for a haunting perfume. Explicit information on ingredients, equipment, and terms and techniques complements one fragrance recipe and three food recipes for nearly thirty ingredients--lime, mint, green tea, black pepper, vanilla, and ginger, among others. This seminal work will open your senses to the aromatic, even sensual, dimension of food and fragrance."]

The Syon Abbey Herbal - the Last Monastic Herbal in England, c. AD 1517.  By Thomas Betson, Last Librarian at Syon Abbey, from St John's College, Cambridge Manuscript 109 (E.6), Betson, Thomas.  [edited by John Adams and Stuart Forbes]
6 Betson, Thomas. [edited by John Adams and Stuart Forbes] The Syon Abbey Herbal - the Last Monastic Herbal in England, c. AD 1517. By Thomas Betson, Last Librarian at Syon Abbey, from St John's College, Cambridge Manuscript 109 (E.6)
London AMCD Publishers 2015 1897762690 / 9781897762691 Cloth New New 
Large thick 8vo, 8 plain plates, pp 376, blue cloth, an excellent copy in dustwrapper. Printing is limited to 500 copies. [The Syon Abbey Herbal was written by Thomas Betson in his notebook, sometime between his profession as a priest-brother at the Bridgettine double monastery of Syon Abbey near London, and his death there in 1517. He is the last recorded Librarian at Syon, and also wrote the still extant Syon Library catalogue. The Syon Abbey Herbal is divided into two main parts - a list of healing plants from Greek, Latin, French and Middle English sources; and a list of remedies from Latin and English sources. One chapter, wholly in latin, is on the use of urine for diagnosis, particularly of women's conditions; another is on herbal essences in distilled alcohol. The appendices include a tentative list of Linnean names for Betson's plants; A list of diseases in the manuscript; and plants at Syon House in 1548, listed by William Turner. This book is a useful contribution to the study of the transition from medieval to early modern medicine. Syon had one of the best equipped late medieval medical libraries in both Britain and Europe. It contained several hundred medical and medical-astrology titles, many unique in Britain to Syon. Almost all of the 1747 volumes in Betson's library are now lost. Only two medical books have ever been found, a Gilbertus Anglicus Compendium Medicinae in English, and an astrological guide.]

12 DONATO, Guiseppe & SEEFRIED, Monique The Fragrant Past - perfumes of Cleopatra and Julius Ceasar
Atlanta & Rome Instituto Poligrafico e Zecca Dello Stato 1989 
Well illustrated, large 8vo, pp 64, paperback, very slightly bowed, otherwise a very good copy. [Well researched. The author's work began sometime during the mid nineteen-seventies as a researcher from the Service of Archeological Subsidiary Sciences, "a multi-disciplinary research center investigating archaeological questions with the help of the most sophisticated technology available." His work placed him in Romania to study the contents of a tomb of the first century A.D. located in Mangalia, by the Black Sea. "Among the most important objects recovered from this sepulcher were the remains of a 'beauty' case containing glass vials and bottles with traces of aromatic products. . . The challenge was to reconstruct a number of ancient perfumes or, more exactly, ointments. This led to the rediscovery of ancient perfumes - one of the fundamental amenities of life in ancient society . . ." ]
