Wellcome Collection: Mary Hawker's recipe book (MS9304)

ReadAboutContentsHelp
Manuscript containing domestic / culinary recipes, with calligraphic ownership statement, Mary Hawker, inscribed on inner leave along with the date 1691. No further details about Mary Hawker are known.

The volume is 16 x 22 cms and 26 pages in total; as well as some additional loose recipe papers folded within the manuscript. It also contains examples of early shorthand, and there seems to be another hand within the volume. Towards the reverse of the volume, there are household guidelines and instructions, such as how to remove stains from silk.

Folder 2 contains papers about the manuscript, including correspondence with record offices about the manuscript, and a document titled "Mary Hawker - her book, 1691" which was a (mostly fictionalised) account of Mary's life written by the donor's borther. Also includes the envelope that the volume was contained in since c. 1980s.
