Notes

Includes index.

"Cynthia Langdon Parsons, entrepeneur".—Page [5]. Hoyle notes, "It is not clear whether she is the author or the publisher."

"Although the format is similar to the calendars, there are no holes punched at the top for hanging and the recipes are listed under headings, not dates. Almost half of the verso pages contain advertisements; the remainder are blank. Only the recto pages are numbered; the recipes appear on recto pages only."—Hoyle.

Foreword by Col. W. Dollman, who writes that, ‘Equipped with such a book as this, the greatest problems can be solved, the most difficult situation made clear. It is commended to the women of South Australia as an epitome of knowledge and a very present help in time of trouble.’

Date based on an advertisement on page [40].
