Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely disappointed. Scanned and printed using optical character recognition software, the result is a cookbook that lacks any sort of line breaks between recipes. Everything runs together in one 96 page paragraph. (Where there is the occasional line-break, it rarely comes at the end of a recipe, but is completely random.) The only hint to indicate where one recipe ends and the next one begins is the use of italics in recipe titles.

OCR errors are rife as well.

This book was extremely entertaining. It's all great, and I especially loved the "cures" for everything from worms to women's "hysteria"! You will not regret ordering this.

While the book in facsimile form is quite difficult to read and the English naturally somewhat archaic, there is a wealth of historical culinary information to be had in this book. It's a must in the library of any serious cook or chef, and especially of those who have an interest in the history of food.
