Also known as The Encyclopedia of Food and Beverages, the title page of the work is very descriptive:

OF ALL KINDS. HOW THEY ARE RAISED, PREPARED AND
MARKETED. HOW TO CARE FOR THEM IN THE
STORE AND HOME. HOW BEST TO USE
AND ENJOY THEM—AND OTHER
GROCERS AND GENERAL STOREKEEPERS
FORMERLY EDITOR OF
"THE NATIONAL GROCER"
The encyclopedia covered more than 1200 topics from Abalone to Zwetschgenwasser, with 80 color pages and 449 illustrations in all. The encyclopedia had 12 pages on cheese, 20 on wine, 16 on tea, 7 on oysters, and information on Kosher, "new" meats such as Kangaroo tails, Cold Storage, Adulteration, Labels, and Guilds. It had an appendix of 39 pages with a list of 500 names used to describe foods and drinks, and French, German, Italian, and Swedish.
