Mrs Rundell sent the manuscript of her cookery book to her old family friend John Murray who published it and the book achieved considerable success. Murray sold 5,000 to 10,000 copies annually and it became one of his most valuable properties. When he bought the lease of the house still owned by the Murrays in Albermarle St., the copyright of 'Domestic Cookery' was part of the surety. Despite the riches accruing to Murray, Mrs. Rundell did not want any remuneration for it.
