Daniel Ltd, nd but probably published after 1914 (copy in DLC). "Onions and cress' discusses the history, uses and properties of onions and cress; however, only a small proportion of the text is devoted to culinary applications. It was first published in 1889 (copy in LoEN) with a second edition in 1911, a third edition in 1912 (copy in LoEN) and fourth edition in 1925 (copy in LB).% 2363
