    The author signs the preface "George Black. Greta Bank, Chelston, Torquay. September, 1907.' Here he says that he ran a vegetarian home called Dartmoor House at Belstone on Dartmoor for several years and that most of the recipes in the book are those of Miss Isabel Densham, the home's manageress. He stresses, however, that the arrangement and presentation of the recipes are his.
    There are forty-four numbered menus, each followed by recipes. Following the forty-fourth menu is a menu for a vegetarian dinner for fifty people and a menu for a Christmas dinner for twelve persons. The index locates the recipes by menu number since the book is unpaginated.
    Note the typographical error on the title-page where there are no quotation-marks preceding "Some Physical Aspects'.
