The BMCat classes this work as a periodical and lists a six volume edition published between 1824 and 1828. Oxford, p 155, notes "This came out in monthly parts from 1824 to 1828. It is more medical than gastronomic'. The books described here however seem to have been issued as entire volumes, although the contents first appeared as separate numbers.
The frontispiece to the first volume is signed G.Ck. [George Cruikshank]. The contents are miscellaneous, including household and general information, receipts, notes on diseases and remedies.
