Date of Composition
This cookbook was written by Jane Dewey, who styled herself Jennie Dewey in the book's inscription. The book is written in a hard bound notebook, with brown marbled paper on the cover and a leather spine. The recipes, all in Jane Dewey's flowing hand, are organized by type, suggesting that the book was copied from loose recipes gathered over time and was compiled in a series of closely spaced sittings.
