    Pages 3-23 cover breakfasts and breakfast dishes; pages 24-46 are about savouries.
    LoEN and OB date their copies [1909].
    LCF holds three copies: one matches the OB volume but is bound in brown cloth; the second lacks pages 1-2; the third is incorrectly assembled so that some pages are repeated, some missing.
    EngCat records the book published by Simpkin in July 1908.

    This version, although it has less recipes than the 1923 edition, is not as abbreviated as the pagination suggests. It is printed in a smaller typeface and with less leading than the 1923 edition so that almost as much material fits into about half the pages.
