The book itself is endearing, and a picture of an earlier time, but I love this book for many reasons. I cannot imagine how many households this went through before it came into my hands, but the important things are not just what's in its pages. There are various recipes, and notes, placed in the pages, including recipes, and shopping lists, and an article from 1936 on two methods for measuring hay.

I should really take out the old recipes, scan them, and put them in plastic sleeves, so that they won't disintegrate.

I wouldn't recommend trying any of the suggested medical offerings, but the recipes published in the book are fine (as are the lovely handwritten ones that that came with my book).

Link to Dr Chase's venture, the Steam Printing House:

(It's copyrighted, or I'd have added it to his page)

Link that doesn't really fit on his author page.

This is a battered hulk of a book, minus covers and spine. But the contents - ah, a gold mine of ancient remedies, recipes and advice!

This is a good book if you have a brain. The cooking recipes need some working out, as only the ingredients and some advice is provided. The method of preparation is usually absent. A period dictionary may be needed to decipher some of the terminology.

My favorite recipe is the one for a skin cream that requires you cook two toads in boiling water. It says that "this is the most humane way to kill them." Don't worry, only the toads juices are needed.
