Manuscript Cookbooks: A. Beaufoy - 1819 / from E. Guy Dickens [Guydickens?] - Table of Contents

Bound in contemporary cardboard covers with a red, leather spine and corners; the paper bears an 1815 watermark. A printed newspaper recipe and remedy for cholera morbus--attributed to Henry Halford and extracted from the London Gazette, 20th October 1831--is pasted inside the front cover. The first three pages of writing were probably added in the early 1830s. At least eight separate hands are identifiable. Of note are early English recipes for several Indian dishes (e.g., mulligatawny 1, curries, and rice for curries).

Provenance: "Shakespearean Collection of Elizabeth and Richard Casanova" [from bookplate].

[continued into the late 1860s, possibly early 1870s]

The recipes are re-numbered from the beginning of this portion of the manuscript. No attempt has been made to correlate the hands to those of the previous recipes.]
