    There are a further two title-pages for the two separate parts of the book. The first reads "How to make a home; including house furnishing and house economy'. The second reads "How to feed a family; comprising everyday cookery, for every family'. Each of the two parts has a separate list of contents and preface.
    Note the pagination, which shows that the two parts are treated as distinct books, although they do not appear to have been bound and sold separately. The date of publication was probably between 1855 and 1860 (see following entry).
