Once the property of one Ivy Roberts, who has written her name large in black ink on the front cover and smaller in the top margin of the title page.

A sequel to her "Hilda's 'Where Is It?' of Recipes" (1891), which the Dictionary of South African Biography describes as "the first attempt to compile a recipe book for South Africans and to include traditional recipes from all the racial groups at the Cape'. Dictionary of South African biography' describes "Hilda's "Where is it'" of recipes' as "the first attempt to compile a recipe book for South Africans and to include traditional recipes from all the racial groups at the Cape'. 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.
