Battershall, Jesse P.
Food Adulteration and Its Detection.

New York E. & F.N. Spon: 1887.

"To embody in a condensed form some salient features of the present status of Food Adulteration in the United States is the object of this volume....the photogravure plates, most of which represent the results of recent microscopical investigation, are considered an important feature of the book." The subjects include tea, coffee, chocolate, milk, butter, cheese, bread, sugar, beer, wine and liquors, oils, mustard, spices, pepper and other foods. An uncommon book in the marketplace.

Hardcover. 6"x9", 328 pages, plus 4 color and 8 b/w plates. Publisher's brown cloth with impressed black device and rules and gilt titles. A clean and bright copy. With the pasted-in plate of C. Smith Boynton, and his ownership signature on the flyleaf and title page. Boynton, an 1864 graduate of Bowdoin College in Maine, practiced medicine in New Hampshire until 1875 when he moved to Brandon, and then Burlington, Vermont as a druggist.
