    1. The only known reference to this work is given in B.& G. Cat., No. 37, p. 14, which states: _ 'Mrs. Battam's book [i.e. a collection of scarce and valuable receipts; see the previous entry for BATTAM, Anne] was first published in 1750, but this edition is so much altered that it may be considered a different work.' See also Aresty, p. 236.
