    The OPo(F) copy is inscribed on the title-page "C. W. Macdonald. April '10."% General comments: The foreword of the undated edition at OPo(F) states that "the major portion of the recipes given in this book have been taken from "Recherche2 side dishes", recently published", and the title-page of the same undated edition which has the subtitle in parentheses, "Recherche2 side dishes", also acknowledges the origin of the text. A comparison of the chapter headings of the 1904 edition of "Savoury breakfast, dinner and supper dishes" with the chapter headings of the 1894 edition of "Recherche2 side dishes" shows just how closely the one followed the other.
