4.0 out of 5 stars A man not recognised in his life time, 16 July 2013

A good account of an interesting man written by his daughter. Of partiucular interest to those in medical research or climbers

cthis is a picture cook book, It contains none of the actual writings by elizabeth David, and I feel it a misleading title with even a fraud element

4.0 out of 5 stars Changes in attitudes, 23 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Here we have a well written account of a woman and her abilities and strength despite being assaulted by the media, and especially the judiciary in the 1800s. Her open lesbian relationship would not gain much space today. How attitudes have changed. Some slight relationship to the life of Oscar Wilde.
