Recipe book containing mostly recipes for wine, cooking, and preserving, plus a few medical and veterinary prescriptions;
and a few recipes for cleaning plate, fumigating rooms, etc. In addition to English recipes are some that show continental
influence, for example, those for French bread, French fritters, Paris curd, Dutch biscuits, and Portugal cakes. Includes
a table of contents for 163 numbered recipes (f. 1r-2v). A leaf laid in the front from A.B. and addressed to Mrs. Edward Browne
appears to be dated Feb. 1, [1808?] "To make a sweet jar;" the same recipe is copied in the same hand on f. 4v.
