Sixth Edition Revised and Enlarged, 110 pp. some occasional spotting, ep discoloured with newspaper cutting referring to the work, adverts.,
"In the palmy days, when Indians visited the Colony, Cape cookery enjoyed a reputation which it has now almost entirely lost through the competition of more pretentious French dishes. But it is believed that there are still many households which would gladly welcome a handy collection of really good, old-fashioned recipes, such as were almost traditional among better classes of Cape society in former times. For them this book is intednded." Author's note.
