    This is also the same work as "The household guide', with a different title-page and frontispiece. The title is in obvious imitation of "Enquire within' by R.K. Philp, an earlier and enormously successful book.
    General comments: it appears that the three different publishers of this book arranged separate publication rights with the author, and agreed to use different titles. A fourth title, "ABC of household management', is cited in Berryman and Walmsley's "Wine and food list no. 1'.
