The first one is located at the top half of the cover and is a promotion for various products such as stamped ware and laundry stoves. The bottom half has the company name written in a black front. Separating the two halves are red ribbons. The inside pages begin with a title page and then continue with various receipts such as oysters, salads, sauces and cakes. Every couple inside pages have drawn black and white illustrations.
