First edition of this self-help volume. "Books of recipes are quiet numerous, but to the average person the good they contain is too often buried beneath a mass of wordy rubbish... Over a quarter of a million pages of patent-office reports, encyclopedias, trade journals, receipt books and other special publications have been carefully scrutinized. To the knowledge obtained from them we include the original matter procured from tradesmen, chemists, and the published works and private practice of some of the most prominent physicians both in this country and Europe. - Preface.
