      The 285 numbered recipes are grouped in four chapters entitled "Dainty breakfasts', "Dainty luncheons', "Dainty teas' and "Dainty dinners`. Recipes for "Bun6uelos Malaganian`, "Soplados` and "Potatoes rellenas' are included in the selection of foreign dishes.

      NUCat attributes this title to Mrs Davidson's husband, Hugh Coleman Davidson (born 1852); however, like the 1888 edition of "Dainties English and foreign', this book has 124 pages, and a comparison of photocopies of a few pages with "Dainties English and foreign' leads me to believe that it is a retitled edition of the same work.

    • 2. — Dainties | English and foreign | by | Mrs. H. C. Davidson | author of "Cold Meat Cookery", | "Egg Dainties, How to Cook Eggs in 150 Ways, | English and Foreign.

      Incorrectly, there are no closing quotation-marks following "... Ways, English and Foreign.` on the title-page.
      The text now contains 299 numbered recipes. LoEN dates this edition [1899]. The date is confirmed by an advertisement on page 13 at the back of the book for the 1899 edition of "Seaside watering places'. A note in the advertisement says that "corrections... for the 1900 edition should now be sent in.`% American editions: Gourley "Eating round the world' lists an edition of "Dainties English and foreign' published in New York by Scribner in 1899.% 0713

      There were two editions in 1899, both numbered "second edition'. The distinguishing feature is that here the title begins, "Egg dainties', in contrast to the edition described in the previous entry which starts, "Egg cookery'. The title transcription and imprint of this edition are from a photocopy of the title-page supplied by ICJ.
      The same image of fried egg, tomato and broken shell appears on the binding.% 0717
