This set reprints a fascinating variety of texts originally published between 1790 and 1820. Offering a unique look at the cultural and literary history of food in the eighteenth century, some highlights include: treatises on food and drink adulteration; vegetarian tracts; the period's most influential pamphlet about boycotting sugar as part of the anti-slavery debate; works on alcohol consumption, Shelley's translation of Euripedes' satyr play about cannibalism; and much more.
