The date of publication is in a very small typeface on the lower edge of the front face of the binding and easy to miss. The short-title, "The grocers, the public and the cooks', appears at the top of page 1. There are 254 numbered recipes preceded by a section called "Modern groceries'. The recipes continue onto the inside face of the binding which I have numbered page 49. Pages 1-48, including the illustrations, are printed on a grey background. The illustrations show goods sold by the publisher, mainly of its own "Ship' brand articles. The printer, Alf Cooke of Leeds, and the publisher are cited on the back of the binding.
