    The preface is dated September 1932 and LB and LoEN date this edition [1932]. The writer of the preface states, "The book has had ancestors in previous editions, and owes not a little to the "School cookery book", which was compiled for the college in 1879 by Miss C. E. Guthrie Wright...." The text contains 606 numbered recipes. Some of the original recipes have been revised and many new recipes added.
    OB records a copy in its collection dated [1932] which is missing; it is likely the same edition as that placed on deposit at LB and LoEN and which is described here.
