    This booklet was published in 1912, the year The People's Kitchen was initiated at the twenty-third Universal Cookery and Food Exhibition. The kitchen illustrated the preparation of inexpensive but wholesome meals on a large scale for working-men's wives. Pages 6-24 of the book present recipes to cater for fifty people. Pages 24-36 contain twelve dinner menus accompanied by recipes to cater for a family of seven. The recipes for a family of seven were compiled by Miss Marian E. Cuff, Superintendent of Domestic Subjects for the Bradford City Council (see under her name for a cookery book by this author).
    A small portion of the paper binding is torn from the NN copy but comparison of the cover-title with the LCF volume confirms that the missing letters following the price should read, "d. net."
