    LB, LoEN and OB date the fifth edition [1927].% General comments: The section on casserole cookery was also published separately, first under the title "Cooking in stoneware" and later "Cooking in stoneware (casserole cookery)" and "Casserole cookery". The same material was also issued separately under the titles "Cooking in fireproof china and earthenware" and "Casserole cookery with fireproof china and earthenware utensils". Entries for these different titles are grouped under "Cooking in stoneware".
