    The title, place of printing and publisher are taken from photocopies of the book supplied by a private collector. This edition has 104 pages. The only undated edition that I have discovered, I cannot be sure where it fits chronologically in the sequence of dated editions.% General comments: For other cookery books promoting the products of Liebig's Extract of Meat Co Ltd, see under the company name.
