      Pages 49-63 form a separate section with its own title-page on page 49: "How to cook in paper bags or the art of "Little-Mary" gas cooking. By Mrs N. Moser.' This part of the book advocates the use of "Little-Mary' gas cooking paper bags.
      "How to cook beef, veal and mutton' is not cited in EngCat, but it was probably published about 1911-1914 since "From sea to table' and "The good wife's cook book' which are cited on the title-page were both published in 1911 and the book's appearance indicates a publication date within the period covered by this bibliography. (Of the two other titles cited on the title-page, "Household gas cookery' was issued in 1908 and "How to make and bake bread, buns, biscuits and cakes' is a book I have not been able to locate nor date.)
