    Pages i-iii, v, vii and xxi of the preliminary leaves are advertisements. Oddly, the half-title which is on page vi follows the title-page on page iv.
    The text is written in a chatty style and is as applicable to the ordinary household cook as to the victuallers of the title. LoEN and OB date the book [1906] and it appears in EngCat as published in March 1906 for 1s 6d. LB holds an identical copy which it dates [1916]. Since there is no entry in EngCat for that year the LB date may be a cataloguing error.
