    There are two quotations on the title-page: above the title, ""Small store of manners when the King says come and feast at court, to say I've meat at home." # Quarles."; and below the title, ""There's no want of meat, sir; portly and curious viands are prepared to please all kinds of appetites." # Massenger.'
    The book was published in 1879 or later since an advertisement on the verso of the title-page incorporates a letter dated 17 November 1879.
