1832. Hardcover. Book Condition: Orig. tooled Vellum. Good. 58 pages. 19.5 x 16 cm. This manuscript consists of 48 recipes and 16 household hints. Most of the handwriting is from one author although there is evidence of two other owners with two different styles. This is dos-e-dos style, recipes written on on side, "August 2nd 1832," and household hints on the other, "August 9th 1832." Recipes include, "To pickle oysters," "Rabbit Pie," "Italian Collops(Scallops),"Bakewell Pudding," and many more. The household hints include, "to stain wood black," "Cement for Turners," "To clean marble." It looks as though the author, as well as a family member? went back later with pencil and made notes to the text. At least 6 pages are missing (cut out), Vellum boards splayed, marbled endpapers.
