    On the title-page is the quotation ""Now, good digestion wait on appetite, and health on both." Macbeth, Act III. Scene 4.' The preface is dated March 1885 and is followed by forty-three numbered recipes for breakfast dishes.
    The LCS copy is bound in grey paper with the price of 1s on the front.% General comments: The 1885 edition of "Breakfast and savoury dishes' is the only edition for which I have found copies; however, there may be other editions since there is an advertisement for the "seventh thousand' in "The official handbook for the National Training School for Cookery" of 1887 and an advertisement for the "ninth thousand' in "The official handbook" of 1891.
