Ninth Edition Small hardback (approx 165mm x 105mm.) 124pp. Plus ads at front and end. Original red cloth boards with gilt to upper boards. Spine lettered in black. No jacket. This ninth edition of "Nelson's Home Comforts" coincided with the Jubilee of their Gelatine, which had been introduced to the market by the late Mr G. Nelson fifty years previously. This edition brought the total number of copies of "Home Comforts" in circulation to 300,000. The author hoped that this new edition would be enhanced in the eyes of the readers by a new recipe: "Cheese and Macaroni Cream", which she hoped would be found a delicacy "both for the dinner-table and for invalids who cannot take sweets." The book also includes a recipe for "Kippers with Picalilli Sauce" - bound to be a winner in every household! Book in good condition. Some wear and fraying to head of spine and a little wear to base of same. Boards generally a little soiled - most noticeably around the edges. Some toning to free endpapers but otherwise quite bright and clean internally. A wonderfully entertaining little book.
