      1. This was a periodical, although a short-lived one, and not a 'magazine' in a single volume, as many other 18th- century works were (including the previous entry). The first section of each issue of this magazine was devoted to recipes for cookery; see Stark, p. 14.
      2. The pagination undoubtedly varied with each issue.
