Owen Simmons, F.C.S. THE BOOK OF BREAD. London: Maclaren & Sons, n.d. 1903. 4to. 360pp. green cloth with gold stamped title. The author had the distinction of being the:
Great Britain and Ireland
Certificated by Examinations under Government (Science and Art Department) in Chemistry, Mechanics, Machine Construction and Hygiene, and in Bread-Making Under the City and Guilds of London Institute (with “Honours”)
Expert since 1888 to “The British Baker”
Bread Judge at the International Exhibitions
Juror to the Universal Food and Cookery Association
lecturer on Bread-making Technology at the International Exhibitions, at the Borough Polytechnic, and
“The National School of Bakery”
How to bake a good loaf, in a technological, scholarly and a scientific sort of way.
Illustrated with “actual size” photographs- 8 black and white, as paste-ons, two superb “silver gelatin” photographs, 11 color photographic prints and 4 black and white photographic illustrations- all of types of bread loaves. In an introductory essay the author explains the difficulty in producing these photographs to illustrate the do’s and don'ts of breadmaking.Martin Parr and Gerry Badger included THE BOOK OF BREAD in their book THE PHOTOBOOK: A HISTORY VOLUME 1, 2004, and and also mention it in interviews publicizing their book- curiously comparing the book and author to a 1980’s conceptual artist. It has since “risen” in the “sought after” art book and rare book market.
