Inscribed on the half-title by a previous owner ' Nottingham August 1929' this 'New' economy edition 'strongly bound' (incorporating over 4,000 recipes from Mr Charles Herman Senn) was brought up to date  to take account of the ongoing labour shortage and the economic circumstances in the UK in the late 1920s; hence a renewed interest in laundry and labour-saving machines

'A complete cookery book with sections on household work, servants' duties, labour saving, laundry work, etiquitete, marketing, carving & trussing, the art of 'using-up', table decoration, the home doctor, the nursery, the home lawyer etc...with 32 plates in colour and nearly 700 illustrations."

Recipes originally attributed to the colonies are now described as being from the Dominions.
