On offer is a German recipe book, filled with dozens of recipes geared toward baked goods, confections and sweet beverages such as liqueurs and after dinner drinks. Based on the handwriting, spelling, and recipes within, this “Rezepten Buch” most likely originated in Austria and Bavaria. The book is lacking cover. The front page has the title, “Rezepten-Buch!” The author is Julius Mayr and the book is dated 1867. The first few pages of the book seem to be a preliminary textual elaboration on the making of sugar and similar substances that will be used in the recipes in the book. Such recipes include in the book include: ‘Pariserkaffee’ (Parisian coffee), ‘Apfelzuckerl’ (apple candy), ‘Veilchensaft’ (violet juice), ‘Englischer Reis’ (English rice), ‘Kirschenkompott’ (cherry fruit salad), ‘Radetzky Eistorte’ (ice cream cake named after a famous Austrian field marshall), ‘Pfirsich Compot’ (Peach compote), and many more. There is over 100 recipes in there and this gives a very good impression as to what desserts the Viennese might have liked during the reign of Emperor Franz Josephs. The condition of the book is good. Some pages are torn and frayed at the edge, but all recipes are readable. The last 10 pages have detached from the binding as well. The handwriting is occasionally difficult to read, but should be much easier for a buyer who speaks German or has fluency in older styles of handwriting. The writing has faded little. The book is 41 pages, of which there is writing in 33 of them. The pages with writing are numbered. Format: 9 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches. This should be a very interesting addition for both cooks and historians. One need only the capability to read the language and the style to get the most out of this fascinating document. Overall: G.
