Printed on the verso of the title-page is "Copyright, 1896, by Anna K. Eccles'. There are three main sections to the text: "The strict Salisbury diet', "For the fairly well' and "For the well'. The index of recipes is also in three sections: "For the sick', "For the fairly well' and "For the well'. The Salisbury diet as propounded by Dr J. H. Salisbury to whom the book is dedicated was a meat diet. The central article of the diet was "Salisbury steak': ground steak shaped into a cake and broiled. "Salisbury steak' was regularly served in North America in my school days in the 1950s and 60s, especially in cafeterias and in school meals, and can still be seen today on some menus.% @NUCat cites a copy of this title at DLC with the imprint "New York: Kellogg and Co, 1897'. Axford 259 records the same imprint.
