Asano Kozo. Illustrations by Gyokuzan Issei.

`Shiroto Hocho` [Cooking for Amateurs],

By Asano Kozo. Illustrations by Gyokuzan Issei. Published respectively in Kyowa 3 [1803], Bunka 2 [1805],
and Bunsei 3 [1820]. 3 v., complete. Landscape format. Original bindings, small title slip of third volume missing. Some wear to bindings, extremely mild wormholing to a couple of pages. Occasional small stains. With many recipes, suggested menus and illustrations of the collecting of ingredients, popular cuisine (including crane, eel, shellfish, octopus, etc.), the process of cooking in the ikamaryu tradition, diners enjoying their food, dining entertainment, traditional plate layouts, and the Japanese tradition of holding back a friend`s hair after he drinks too much sake and needs to relieve himself. These books also talk about cooking meat for sugiyaki, which is rare as at this time in Japan meat was not commonly eaten by the middle class. What is unique about this book is that it focusses on cuisine from Kyoto and Osaka, which was not usually introduced in books. Comes in non-original slipcase.
