About this work


Collection of cookery and medical receipts: written mainly by two compilers.

The medical receipts are mostly on ff. 65-95, and are written by the later hand.

A receipt for 15/- 'for a table and all account' is found on the last leaf, and is dated 1736, but it is by a later hand than any in the main text.
