    Miss Edden says in the preface, "The success which has attended the sale of my former cookery books has led me to issue a new and revised edition containing many fresh recipes.' "New and revised edition' is printed on the binding. Although no date of publication is given, this edition was probably issued in the mid-1890s since an advertisement for the author's cookery lessons on page 1 refers to medals won at London cookery competitions in 1891 and 1893.
    The LWel copy has an extra leaf of advertisements at the end.
