    This enlarged edition has been repaginated to accommodate the new recipes with the result that the page references in the author's "Larger cookery book" to recipes here no longer correspond. There is a special notice on page vii explaining the discrepancy.
    Three factors point to a publication date of about 1894-1895 for this edition: an advertisement on page iv cites "Fancy ices" as "just published' and this title was first issued in 1894; there is a handwritten inscription dated 1895 on the blank leaf preceding the half-title of the WYoLU(B) copy; and a footnote to the preface of the sixth thousand of the author's "Larger cookery book' states that the thirtieth thousand of "Mrs A. B. Marshall's cookery book' has been "corrected to date of this edition, December 1894.'% 5048 6
