    The accent in "a1' and the closing quotation-mark are missing from "Entrees a1 la mode' on the title-page of the first edition.
    Printed on the title-page is the quotation ""As the last taste of sweets is sweetest last" Shakespeare'. It appears on the title-page of all the editions which I have examined and for which a title-page transcription is given.
    The preface is signed "Harriet A. de Salis. 71 Warwick Road, Earl's Court, S.W. January 1888.` The text is in three parts: "Sweets a1 la mode' on pages 1-49, "Supper dishes a1 la mode' on pages 50-66, and "Supper cups a1 la mode' on pages 67-75.
