    This seems to be a later edition of "Currant cookery' although the cover-titles differ. The recipe section, which follows four pages on the history of the currant vine, is headed "Currant cookery'. It is in two parts, "Simple home recipes' on pages 5-17 and "High-class cookery' on pages 18-32, both by Senn. A comparison of the indices reveals that the majority of recipes in "Home recipes for cooking currants' also appear in "Currant cookery'.
    According to a promotion for currants in the ninth edition of Senn's "Simple cookery for the people', "Home recipes for cooking currants", like "Currant cookery', was free on request from grocers. The promotion describes "Home recipes' as "just... published'. Although "Simple cookery for the people" is undated, there is a reference in it to the "late King Edward VII' which indicates that "Home recipes' was published some time after Edward's death in 1910.
