      The copyright date, 1898, is on the verso of the title-page. In the preface, which is dated Washington, DC, November 1898, the author says that the book is the result of the publisher's request that she up-date "Diet for the sick" published by Harper and Brothers in 1885.%
      Pages 99-246 contain recipes and menus, and recipes are also found elsewhere in the text.
      The NNNAM copy is inscribed on the front end-paper "For dear Lizzie: with the author's love. Christmas 1898."
      NUCat incorrectly records an edition with the copyright date of 1896 at OCl; the OCl copy is, in fact, the same as that described here.
