Often cited as a 'vegetarian' treatise. Although the majority of the recipes are vegetarian, some (eg. Hodge-Podge) do use meat stock. Now uncommon in its own right, especially in this condition.

[MRS. MARIA RUNDELL]
"New System of Domestic Cookery formed upon Principles of Economy, and adapted to the Use of Private Families. With many new Receipts and embellished with Thirty-Six Engravings."
"T. Nelson, 1852" "16mo., with 16 engravings on 4 plates, and 20 engraved illustrations in the text, text lightly age-soiled throughout; newly bound in brown cloth to style, original cloth label lettered in gilt laid down, a very good, firm copy. From the 1820s until the sixty-sixth edition of 1842 the illustrations generally comprise a frontispiece (usually incorporating the title) and nine engraved plates illustrating cuts, carving and trussing. In the 'new' booksellers' edition of 1846 the frontispiece becomes a kitchen scene. This edition, produced in handy 'pocket' format, appears to be the first with the illustrations rearranged to show carving in the text, and the engravings of cuts and trussing presented in plate form, perhaps for greater clarity. Scarce. This edition not recorded by Cagle, Oxford or Wheaton & Kelly."

[M. RUNDELL]
"New System of Domestic Cookery formed upon Principles of Economy and adapted to the Use of Private Families. With many new Receipts, and embellished with thirty-six Engravings. By a Lady."
"T. Nelson, 1857" "16mo., with an engraved frontispiece (original tissue guard present), engraved and printed titles, and 34 wood-engraved illustrations in the text, wanting Q8, some mild and occasional age-staining, neat contemporary signature on front free endpaper; original dark green cloth, boards elaborately blocked in blind, gilt back, neatly recased, a very good, tight copy. This attractive and compact edition of a culinary staple is enhanced by an unusual hunting scene as frontispiece; the title-vignette depicts a table of wildfowl and short quotation from Suckling. This must have been one of last the issues of Rundell before the onset of Beeton. This edition not in Cagle. Scarce."
