[MANUSCRIPT]. [Thematic Manuscript Recipe Book].

  • £21000


[Yorkshire?, UK]: [C.1880s].
8vo, 18cm, c. 80ff (of which c.23 used mainly on both rectos & versos), blue tinted paper. Original half black roan & marbled boards (rubbed).

A highly legible and organised late 19th century manuscript recipe book. Over nine sections - broths; made dishes; sauses (sic); puddings, pies & c.; cakes biscuits & c.; jellies; pickles; wines, beer & c. & miscellaneous, our chef takes us through some sixty recipes from Bakewell pudding and Boudin a la Hollondaise (sic) to Couquilles de Ris De Veau, Crewe Pudding, Hamburg Beef, Kings Cup and Napkin Cheesed. One recipe is entirely in French and other French recipes indicate a fairly sophisticated palate.
