    The book presumably takes its title from "The milky way magazine' issued by the same publisher. The recipes are printed on the top half of pages 7-106; hints on health and beauty and rules of etiquette fill the bottom half of the pages. According to the introduction the recipes were compiled "by a skilled practitioner of the culinary art, Miss M. E. Steedman, of Birmingham'. This is likely the M. E. Steedman who wrote "Home-made beverages and American drinks' (see Steedman, Miss M. E., for a description of this book on beverages).
