    General comments: Mrs Clarke is not cited on the title-page or binding of these individual volumes as the author; however, she is described as the author on the binding of "Artizan, plain cookery, and household recipes, with rules for children's classes', the combined volume which contains "Artizan recipes' bound with "Plain cookery recipes' and "Rules for the management of children's classes' (see entry immediately below). It does, therefore, seem reasonable to attribute "Artizan recipes' to her.
