1820 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT COOKBOOK OF EARLY 19TH CENTURY BRITISH COOKING AND CULINARY ARTS

By: MRS. JACKSON

Price: $2,255.99

Quantity: 1 available


On offer is a super, early 19th Century manuscript book of recipes, an index on the back of the front board, 67 pages or so, hand numbered, then some unnumbered. There are also some loose recipes tucked in. We note with fascination that this book was likely started at the beginning of a marriage for a newlywed couple as the back board is inscribed: "Mr and Mrs Jackson were married on the 22nd of June 1819. Mr J. aged 24 and Mrs J. 22. Mrs J. was born Feb 20 1797." We speculate that this book was started soon after the commencement of their married life. Many unique recipes including: Risalles (likely Rissoles), Brageniza wine, Parte for Stringing Tartlets, Bleak house pudding, Miss Huggetts' Plum cake and more - see the photo of the index. Remedies include: Oil of Amber, Oil of Turpentine, Spirits of Hartshorn, Spirits of Wine, Spirits of Campion, Vinegar and eggs. Remedy for toothache: wet a piece of wool with creosote and put it into the tooth with a quill, Cough Medicine: treacle, vinegar and laudanum and sirup of squills and more. A small size book, almost disbound, the front and back boards are leather, which are free from the text block but this is mostly still all sewn together.
