In this reproduction of a 17th century recipe book the type font has been modernised but the spelling and grammar of the time has largely been retained. This gives it a nice period flavour but occasionally leads to difficulty in comprehension. As always with early recipes, especially medicinal ones, remember this is derived from an old wives tale!

The staples show some signs of corrosion but the binding is secure and all content is clean and legible.
