A rather seriously presented kitchenware catalogue, seemingly from a gentleman tinker. Each piece of equipment and cookware is described in much detail, the price list only appearing towards the end. He also offers packages of ovens and particular cookware for set sums.The newly developed kitchen equipment is advertised on the title page as being available to view and test at the house of M. Harel, on the rue St. Honoré on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 12 and 3.

Extremely rare and apparently unrecorded. Not in any bibliographies. Not in COPAC or OCLC. The Bibliothèque Nationale has a later edition of 1821.
