Interesting Cookbook!

Check out the table of contents for this cookbook. Very cool. 1819 Antique Cook Book,Medical,Fishing,Brewing,Drowning - (eBay item 280163533118 end time Oct-22-07 17:13:31 PDT) No, I'm not the one selling this--I wish I could afford to buy it though.

If I were rich I might pay that for this one, but there's no danger of that happening any time soon!

Oh yeah! I sell some of those type books every now and then, and they are absolutely amazing! It wasn't uncommon back then, when someone commented on your perfume, to say "I got it from my book, page xxx! Want me to make you some?"
Ditto medicines, dyes, household chemicals, veterinary medicines and so much more.
Fascinating stuff indeed!

Well, if the spell for giving your former boss a little girlie voice and long Shirley Temple curls works, I'll let you know!
