The Wellcome Library is pleased to announce that its entire collection of 17th century receipt (recipe) books – 75 manuscripts in total – have been made available online. They are currently available as PDFs from our catalogue records. We have further information on this project on our Library website digitisation pages and in our latest edition of Wellcome News.

In order to keep the PDF file sizes down, they have been compressed, and in many cases, blank pages have been left out. We also store high-resolution images of every page of these manuscripts, and if required you can order these by visiting Wellcome Images.

Mounting the images online is only half the project – stay tuned for our announcement regarding the indexing of the recipe titles, which is currently in progress.
