We are pleased to offer two editions of this very scarce cookery work, likely first published in 1891.
Not found elsewhere, the only example is a third edition in a private collection described in UC Davis’ ‘Household Books Published in Britain’ database. The first pamphlet is believed 1st edition as lacks edition details or the prefaces found in the later editions, and contains 96 recipes. The 6th edition pamphlet, published 1898, contains 104 numbered recipes.
Recipes include ‘Patriotic Pudding’ and ‘Ragout of Rabbit’.
Both contain a number of adverts, some illustrated, for a variety of products including Cadbury’s cocoa, and Atora suet.
No ownership inscriptions or bookplates, no pencil notes.
