    General comments: "Cooking in stoneware" is the section on casserole cookery from Senn's "Chafing dish and casserole cookery". The book was later retitled "Cooking in stoneware (casserole cookery)" and, from the twenties, simply "Casserole cookery". J. Chomette and Son, a company selling culinary ware, published two editions, the earlier one entitled "Cooking in fireproof china and earthenware", the later "Casserole cookery with fireproof china and earthenware utensils". The entries for the Chomette editions are described last only because I have not established their exact position within the sequence of numbered or dated editions.
