    The first edition does not have a half-title. Printed on the title-page is the quotation ""Chimeras from the poet's fancy flow, the cook contrives his shapes in real dough" King'. This quotation appears on the title-page of all the following editions which I have examined and for which a title-page transcription is given.
    The preface is signed "Harriet A. de Salis. January 1889.' The recipes are arranged in three sections: cakes, biscuits, and candies and iced desserts.
