    Printed on the verso of the title-page is "First published 1901 < Reprinted 1902, 1903, 1905, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1911, 1912, 1914, 1915, 1917, 1922, 1923, 1926, 1928, 1931, 1934, 1939, 1942, 1944 and 1946 < Second edition, 1950' (the third impression, which is catalogued above, is dated 1904, a year which, oddly, does not appear in this publishing history). In the preface, which is signed "E. F. 1949', Fordham says that she "found very little to alter in the recipes themselves'.
    The LCF copy retains the original dust-jacket citing the price of 8s 6d.% General comments: NIC(HA) holds an undated edition of "King Edward's cookery book' but does not specify the impression.% 1122
