A rare and fascinating window into the early days of motoring, first published in 1909, this early technical book of advice covers everything the motorist could possibly need to know. Types of cars, regulations, horsepower, ignition, fuel, carburation, air-locking, gear changing, lubrication, steam cars - and much more! A must for vintage car enthusiasts, this beautifully reproduced, classic motor book is a tribute to the Age of Speed, and in many ways the cutting-edge handbook of its time. It perfectly captures the nostalgia and wonder of a long-lost era, when motorists were constantly pushing the boundaries of what was possible and mass-motoring was just beginning.
“The variety of dishes that Huck and Young present as possibilities for preparing and cooking outdoors is rather astounding and pleasantly surprising” (Epicurious). Camping fare typically includes burgers and hot dogs, and while these are certainly easy, get ready to rethink the cuisine that can be savored over the open flame. With recipes like Spiced Currant Cream Scones, Maple-Glazed Wild Salmon, and Tomato Tarte Tatin, Huck and Young celebrate delicious food and the great outdoors. They also include step-by-step instructions for activities such as stargazing, foraging for woodland berries, and minding one’s fruits of the sea (or, how to clean a fish). Campfire Cookery proves that the campfire cannot only be a blissful escape but a true culinary destination. “It is the rare cookbook that has even the camping-averse actually contemplating a weekend of mosquitoes and sweaty sleeping bags . . . But really, we simply love the recipes.” —LA Weekly
