    The writer says in the introduction that he has been connected with the trade "for the last sixty-five years' and that many of the recipes were published in "The British and foreign confectioner' and "The practical confectioner' "during the last six years'. He intended the book not only for practical cooks and confectioners but for those with only a slight knowledge of the subject.
