      Date from BMCat. Binding: purple cloth, gilt. This is a very similar work to Jane Stoker's "A manual of domestic economy', and it also has proverbs and maxims running across the head of each page, but the contents have been expanded to suit the needs of older readers.

      A advertisement in the second volume of "Stewart's domestic economy reading-book' states that "Useful recipes' a sequel to "Home comfort' by Jane Stoker was published at 4d by W. Stewart & Co, ondon. It is quite possible that this collection formed the appendix to the second edition of "Home comfort'.
