Staff Comments:

Volume 2 is actually a transcription from the original facsimile of two books by John Murrell; Second book of Cookery (fifth printing) and ‘New Booke of Carving and Sewing’. This second book of recipes includes recipes for Bakte meates and kickshawes, while the ‘New Book of Carving and Sewing’ is heavily based on the 1513 Book of Kervynge. It does however also contain updated details of servant duties, table layout and other aspects of table service rarely documented. The transcription maintains the original spelling and punctuation identifying any changes made. Includes a glossary, abbreviations and the original index pagination of both recipe books at the end of this volume.
