1. Although this work by Mary Eales bears great similarity to her later published work, The compleat confectioner (see previous entry), there are sufficient differences to allow them to be regarded as separate books. It is interesting to note a sale in or about 1934; see B & G.Cat., No. 37, p. 7, which lists 'Mrs. Mary Eales's Receipts . . . [London, c. 1720]. An English MS. on 54 leaves, easily legible. This is a transcript of the first edition (1718).'
