    This is a retitled edition of "Cassell's shilling cookery". Preface, text and pagination are the same. Later editions of the book reverted to the original title, "Cassell's shilling cookery", with the exception of one undated, twentieth-century edition called "Cassell's popular cookery" (see below).
    I cannot be sure where this edition fits chronologically in relation to the fortieth and sixtieth thousand of "Cassell's shilling cookery" both of which are also dated 1889. Interestingly, this edition carries an advertisement for the fortieth thousand.

    An advertisement on page iv which refers to King George V who reigned 1910-1935 indicates that this edition was published in 1910 or later.% General comments: There is an advertisement for the eightieth thousand of "Cassell's shilling cookery" in Lizzie Heritage's "Cookery for schools" of 1891; an advertisement for the one hundred and tenth thousand in Heritage's "Cassell's new universal cookery book" of 1894; and an advertisement for the one hundred and thirty-fifth thousand in Phyllis Browne's "The dictionary of dainty breakfasts" of 1898. These advertised editions may or may not correspond to some of the dated editions cited above which I have not seen.% American editions: NIC(HA) holds "Cassell's half-dollar cook book" edited by A. G. Payne, New York: Cassell, nd, pages 360.
