Simca’s Cuisine by Simone ‘Simca’ Beck, 1972, First Edition, First Printing: Beck was Julia Child’s French partner and co-author in the creation of the two volume classic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Hard cover book with dust jacket. 326 pages plus index. Book written in collaboration with Patricia Simon. Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, in 1972. Definitely first edition, first printing, since this copy still has its errata sheet tucked into the front of the book.
