Dick's Encyclopedia of Practical Receipts and Processes {1872} on CD

Encyclopedia of practical receipts and processes, containing over 6400 receipts, embracing thorough information in plain language applicable to almost every possible industrial and domestic requirement, by William B. Dick.

In the Victorian era our ancestors were likely to have a self-help book of a different sort sitting on their bookshelves. Self-sufficiency was paramount, as people didn’t have the option of running to the store every time they needed something. Most everything was done or made from scratch at home. Of course, folks in the nineteenth century didn’t have the Internet to refer to either when they needed a recipe or instructions on how to do something. As a result their ‘self-help’ book of choice — a handy reference such as Dick’s Encyclopedia — was almost as necessary to a well-run home as food or water.

This massive volume holds an enormous wealth of information, knowledge, instructions and advice. In fact, there are over 6400 formulas, instructions and recipes — or receipts as they were called in the Victorian days. This formulary, compiled by author, William B. Dick, began as a collection of tried and true popular and domestic recipes and grew to include the artistic and scientific receipts as well. Dozens of authorities were consulted in order to put together this fascinating guide.

Here's an example of some of the practical preparations, recipes, and instructions included in this content rich tome:
