COOKERY : [MANUSCRIPT RECIPE BOOK].

COOKERY : [MANUSCRIPT RECIPE BOOK].

A charming 200-year old pocket-book (the paper watermarked 1809) containing fifty-four manuscript recipes in several legible hands, including apple, lemon, plum, orange, citron and paradise puddings; lemon and almond cheesecakes; india pickle; fish sauce; treatments for veal and eels; Portugal cakes and Shrewsbury cakes; currant, orange, elderberry, raisin and ginger wines; gingerbread, and bullace (damson) cheese, as well as some cough medicines and a method of cleaning urns. A reference to "Miss Hailstone's Biscuits" perhaps indicates a Wiltshire origin, where the Hailstone name is rather more common than elsewhere.
Crown 8vo (18cm). [48]pp - the final six leaves unused. Original marbled wrappers; wrappers a little worn marked and frayed; some internal browning, a few nicks and one small hole, but an attractive and interesting survival.
