The author, Public Analyst for Buckinghamshire, Buckingham, and High Wycombe in England, writes in his Preface: "During the year 1871 I devoted much attention to the subject of milk analysis, and, besides making many hundreds of analyses of milk purchased in different parts of London for the Milk Journal, was employed by Government in an investigation into the milk supplied to the Metropolitan Workhouses. I have likewise examined the milk supplied to the Hospitals in London....At the present time, when a new class of men has been constituted to watch over the food of the country, there is need for special manuals of this description."
