    In the preface, which is dated Edinburgh, September 1894, the author comments, "I have endeavoured, while offering a very comprehensive dictionary of cookery, which embraces the most costly dishes of Paris, St Petersburg, and London, to minister at the same time, as effectively as possible, to the culinary requirements of the humblest citizen.' The book is in two parts: Part I "The modern cook', pages 1-218; and Part II "The practical confectioner', pages 219-314 (the half-title to the second part is on an unpaginated leaf preceding page 219).% 0614
