MacKenzie's Ten Thousand Reciepts
Mackenzie's Ten Thousand Receipts, published in 1865, aimed to provide the reader with all practical household recipes. As he notes,""In truth, the present volume has been compiled under the feeling, that if all other books of Science in the world were destroyed, this single volume would be found to embody the results of the useful experience, observations, and discoveries of mankind during the past ages of the world.""
