On offer is a super, original begun in 1805 manuscript cookbook with many 100s of European culinary recipes [receipts] handwritten in French whose origins begin in a castle in Limbourg Belgium. Inscribed 'Livre de Cuisine a Marie Barbe Therese Henrotay Commence le 3 Juillet 1805.' There is one major hand throughout, Marie likely, with other hands later with other dates of a few entries on the last pages through to the 1840s and remarkably a few from 1915! The recipes are all encompassing: meats, desserts, baking, storage, preparation etc. Absolutely stunning in its breadth. We note one pair of very unique to this particular book pages: 263 and 264 enigmatically titled 'Preservatif Contre Cholera morbus - Extrait de la Gaseppe de la D'aip-La Chapelle Du 1st Septembre 1831' which we believe refers to a gastrointestinal illness of cramps, diarrhea, and sometimes vomiting but not used technically. The well centered inscription bordered with the outline of a wide bottomed flask is otherwise blank of writing. This same page has a hand stamp inscription 'Jos. Dejardin 47 Place St. Georges, Limbourg [Belgium]. We suggest this leads directly back to an ancient food establishment still in use today and we believe called Brasserie St-Georges. The book proper has seen better days. The binding is cracked and loose and someone has what appear to be skewered the book piercing the cover and through several pages but hardly a word of loss but annoying. Otherwise the interiors are legible and as stated several hundreds of ancient recipes.
