    1. The present compiler has not found one cataloguer of 18th-century cookery books who has assumed that the 'Mr. Farley' who produced this work was the same person as John Farley; see next entry.
    2. Bitting states that this work is entirely different from another with the same main title; see under later entry: POWELL, B., The guide to preferment. This work is not part of her collection in the DCLC.
