With this new edition, "All the old cookery recipes [4000+] have been carefully re-tested, and the details modified, wherever necessary, to suit present-day conditions, thus ensuring the best results, always with due regard to economy, the necessity for which is more fully acknowledged than ever. ... The book as it now stands is, we believe, by far the greatest value for money ever given in book production."
