Country Man's Cooking by W.M.W. Fowler. 1st Edition, 1965.

This is a cookbook with a difference. It is a fascinating blend of culinary art, country lore, natural history and earthy wit! The author's aim is to instruct in first principles of cookery - so he commences with the live creature - be it bird, fish or animal -  and explains how to snare and shoot, pluck and skin, dissect and joint. His recipes reflect the succulent wholesomeness of English cooking at its best.
