    The preface is dated September 1892 as in the first cited edition; however, the last printed page is page 9 which ends with recipe No. 11 for mutton broth. Twenty-seven blank leaves follow. This odd copy may be a dummy for the edition described above or, possibly, for a later unpublished edition.
