    Printed on the verso of the title-page is "Copyright by Belford, Clarke and Co 1889".
    This is a story, written in the first person, about one family's experiments in diet. Comments on the various dietary regimes are more gastronomical than medical. The author sometimes works recipes and menus into the text.
    The LCF copy is inscribed on the half-title "To Ch. H. Senn Esq. with compliments of Adolphe Meyer".
    Axford 118 and Bitting 543 cite this title but do not include London as a place of publication in the imprint. Axford 118 describes the book as Vol. 4, No. 31 of "The household library".
