    On the title-page there is an illustration of a servant dressed in tails captioned ""Dinner is served"'. Below the illustration is the quotation ""Yes, dine by all means, but be sure you dine wisely." # Walter Scott.' A prefatory note is dated 21 August 1891.
    Not a collection of recipes, the book is about planning dinners of all kinds. There is even a section called "Hospitality on the heather' covering meals in the Highlands during shooting season.
