      The following quotation is printed on the title-page: ""Now good digestion wait on appetite and health on both." (Macbeth, III., 4.)"%
      In the preface the author describes her aim as "to put together simple and inexpensive dishes, suitable, for instance, to those living in the remote rural districts of Ireland, and to those of moderate means living in the larger towns." She adds, "While not meaning to confine the book to one country, I yet have the welfare of the "Irish people" especially at heart".

      NUCat cites a fifth edition dated 1905 ({{sic}}) at MU; since the third edition was issued in 1906, 1905 must surely be a typographical error.

      The author discusses in the preface her plans for the series of which this title forms a part. She says, "I purpose to write several books at 6d each, these to embrace most of the usual courses of a recherche2 dinner, ie, hors d'oeuvres... entreme3ts.... In Book V some hints upon drawing up menus will be given, together with a few specimens of these." I have found no evidence that Books III, IV and V on hors d'oeuvres, entreme3ts and menus, respectively, were ever published.
