Most of the books were student copies which were added to the College library. Many of them have annotations and additional recipes handwritten in the notes section. Although the 2009 centenary edition was published under the auspices of Glasgow Caledonian University, it has been included in this collection to keep the sets of editions together. The set is not complete as some editions were not kept by the College.
