    The text contains 247 numbered recipes. A notice on pages v-vi states, "Two or three years ago this little book was published containing a good many maigre recipes... It is now re-edited in a different shape, and with the addition of a good many more, chiefly Italian recipes. Some few, not strictly maigre in their preparation, have been added, because the collection has been found useful, not merely for maigre seasons, but for invalids and for savoury dinner dishes.'
