    On the binding Brown and Polson Ltd is described as by appointment to King George V, indicating a publication date for this edition of 1910 or later.
    CPC (United Kingdom) Ltd, of which Brown and Polson is now a part, has a copy of "Light fare recipes for corn flour and Paisley Flour cookery" by Senn which may correspond to the edition at OPo(F) and LCF catalogued here. The company's copy is inscribed on the blank front end-paper by the original owner "E A Mace June 18th 1914", evidence that the book was first published within the period covered by the bibliography.
    LWel holds an edition which matches the OPo(F) and LCF copies except that the price list on page iii of the publisher's advertisements has been cancelled with a rubber stamp and glued in the margin is another price list dated 1 February 1916.
    NNNAM has a 113-page copy of this title which it dates [1916].

    The CPC company collection has a copy with the same title which may or may not correspond to the LoEN edition.
    NUCat records a 120-page volume at NN with the same title which the library dates [1929?].% General comments: Also in the CPC company collection are two volumes with matching cover-titles: "Light fare recipes for corn flour, "Raisley" and custard powder cookery". I have not compared the texts of these volumes with the editions described above to determine whether they should be considered as editions of the same work. From the appearance of the plate mounted on the binding of each volume they were published in the thirties or forties: one plate shows a three-quarter-length view of a woman mixing the contents of a bowl; the other is a half-length view of a
