HEATH, Ambrose. Good Food Without Meat. London: Faber and Faber, 1940.

8vo., publisher's cream boards printed with a design by Edward Bawden in blue and black; in the repeat dust wrapper (clipped); decorative title by Bawden; pp. [vi], 7-108; some light toning and spots to outer edges; the odd pencil cross mark to the margins of text; spine ends lightly bruised, else a very clean copy; the jacket toned along spine and chipped to head, very good.
First edition of this scarce wartime cookery book. "It is not a Vegetarian cookery book", Heath writes in his Preface, but a selection of recipes "dictated by the exiguities of war-time, as an appetizing aid to those who may find difficulty, for various reasons, in obtaining all the meat they need." Recipes include such classics as anchovy fritters, bananas on toast, and Eggs a la Tripe.
Dedicated to Richard de la Mare, Faber’s production director and son of the writer, Walter de la Mare.
