According to a footnote on page 95 of "Fifty years of food reform", this first edition was sold out on the first day of publication. In the preface Forward acknowledges assistance he received from the proprietors and chefs of five vegetarian restaurants (The Charing Cross Vegetarian Hotel, the Acorn, the Central, the Porridge Bowl, and the Apple Tree). The recipes are organised under the headings "Breakfasts', "Luncheons", "Teas' and "Dinners'.
The LB copy is bound in grey paper. The nineteenth edition of Mary L. Allen's "Savouries and sweets' advertises the book bound in fancy boards, cloth back, gilt for 1s 6d.
