Miss Duckitt has been called "The Mrs. Beeton of South Africa". The present month is arranged by months and contains not just recipes but notes on housekeeping. The only early printings were the two 1902 printings totaling only 2000 copies, which accounts for it being a scarce book today. A cornerstone of an African cookery collection.
