    Page vi of the introduction says, "In the following pages will be found a description of almost every article supplied by Messrs Crosse and Blackwell". The entries are arranged alphabetically from absinthe to yellow vegetable colouring. The book discusses both how to preserve foods at home and how to use commercial, preserved foods in cooking.
    LoEN and OB date this edition [1886]. I have not established whether it precedes, follows or is contemporaneous with the edition described immediately below.
