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.
