    The author's name is on the binding; the date, on page 128. The cover-title differs slightly from the title-page and reads, "Homely hints on diet and cookery". Chapter II, entitled "Digestion and indigestion" and comprising pages 17-32, is printed on blue paper.
    Unlike the OPo(F) copy, those in LB, LCF, LoEN and OB do not have two leaves of advertisements preceding the half-title on page 1. The LCF copy is imperfect, lacking pages 9-16.
