This three-volume set examines the cultural and literary history of food in the eighteenth century. It reprints exemplary texts from this fascinating and diverse subculture, which was gaining strength in a period of rapid urbanization, industrialization and revolutionary politics. Highlights include: influential writing concerning the anti-slavery debate, works on alcohol consumption, and Shelley's translation of Euripedes' satyr play about cannibalism.
