About this work


Collection of medical, cookery, miscellaneous and household receipts: in French. Written partly on the rectos only, and mostly by the same hand. There are a few entries by later hands: one of these is dated 1820. The receipts are of a very mixed variety, and include many for cakes and sweet-meats, methods of catching and cooking fish, wine-making, etc.
