Container List

Series XV - Materials Produced by Other Organizations, circa 1836-circa 1934


The series contains one small box of material from non-CAS organizations arranged chronologically, followed by one cookbook [ca. 1864], handwritten, author unknown, relationship to the CAS unknown. The latter is in poor condition. The book tends toward upscale recipes (i.e. lobster sauce, oysters, and blanc mange), and uses ingredients which might be hard to come by in the 19th century (coconut, pineapple). There are many dessert recipes, as well as some recipes for making alcohol, savory recipes, pickling recipes, and healing recipes: "blackberry syrup for the summer complaint" and "a remedy to break the scarlet fever."
