Victorian Manuscript cookbooks?

Postby bugbear » Mon Feb 19, 2018 1:54 pm

How common are these? I just found one at a car boot, owned by the lady of a biggish (5 servants) house, dated around 1860.

Is this mega rare, and deserves to be in a museum, rare-ish, or dirt common?

I'm trying to decide what to do with it. My options are currently

* donate to museum (if rare)
* from on eBay (if fairly rare)
* keep (if common)

Certainly not dirt common. They crop up fairly regularly in the specialist cookery booksellers catalogues. Give a shout if you put it on Ebay.

I didn't know there was such a thing as specialist cookery booksellers. Thank you!
