This 36-page book of culinary recipes is written in several different hands. Many of the recipes are attributed to their contributors, and one recipe was evidently sent via post to "J. Codrington" from "Mrs Blome at Mr Newmans house" in Kent. The pages are of widely varying sizes, and it is unclear if they were gathered into a volume by the original collector at an early date, or if they were compiled and bound together by a modern collector.
