This is an edited and slightly corrected copy of the text of the original. This transcription does not attempt to retain the original page layout. The period spelling has been maintained with minor corrections.

48 page A5 booklet. Contents include:

  • Introduction
  • Original list of contents
  • Delightfull Daily Excercises (Banqueting Recipes)
  • Banquet service and layout
  • A Booke of Cookerie
  • Abbreviations
  • Glossary

Anyone wishing to reproduce one of the dishes may need to use a little imagination in interpreting the text. These old recipes may mention ingredients that may no longer be regarded as legal or safe, and some care should be taken in attempting to reproduce them.

There are some very minor scuffing and marks to the cover and page edges, with slight corrosion to the staples but all internal content is virtually as new.
