    The cover-title is "Prof. Eugene La Fayette's French or Paris family cook book'. The book is dedicated on page ii to the women of America. In the preface the author says that he was inspired to publish the volume during a trip through England and America in 1884 when he became aware of the lack of a reasonably priced book of genuine French recipes for family use. He refers to a previous French edition of the work.
    The DLC copy is missing pages 15-16.
