First off, I’ll finally have a chance to make French Onion Soup from The Epicurean this weekend. Looking forward to that. Also, it turns out Monsieur Daudet was quite the loyal monarchist. He had beef with all the revolutionaries and called for the reinstatement of the King of France.
Today’s find is from Dickens. It’s Volume 21 of his complete works (WorldCat), printed right before the start of the 20th Century.
The book smelled old and dry and was very brittle. Come visit it before it’s sent into retirement.
