    The cover-title is "Moir's preserved food and how to prepare it for the table, by "Wyvern"'. In the introduction, which is dated London, 1 May 1892, the author comments, "The advice I give in this catalogue is more particularly addressed to Messrs J. Moir and Son's cliente1le in India and the Colonies; nevertheless there is much of it quite practicable in England, and to be earnestly recommended to home consumers of preserved food.' Pages 7-62 contain a catalogue of 119 numbered entries for Moir's products with Kenney-Herbert's suggestions for use. Pages 63-104 are recipes.
