The full title of this book is: "Dr. Chase's Recipes; or, Information for Everybody: An Invaluable Collection of About Eight Hundred Practical Recipes For Merchants, Grocers, Saloon-Keepers, Physicians, Painter, Jewelers, Blacksmiths, Tinners, Gunsmiths, Farriers, Barbers, Bakers, Dyers, Renovators, Farmer, and Families Generally with a Rational Treatment of Pleurisy, Inflammation of the Lungs, and Other Inflammatory Diseases, and also for General Female Debility and Irregularities."

Overwhelmed? I hope not, because the title page goes on to say:

"Greatly enlarged and improved by the publisher, who has added Appendices to the Medical, Saloon, Farriers' , Barbers' and Toilet, Bakers' and Cooking, Miscellaneous, and Coloring Departments, and also Several New Departments viz. Advice to Mothers, Rules for the Preservation of Health, Accidents and Emergencies, Hints upon Etiquette and Personal Manners, Hints on Housekeeping, Amusements for the Young and Bee Keeping. All Arranged in their Appropriate Departments, with a Copious Index."


This book is omniscient. And you can be too, if only you read it.

Believe it or not, this is still available in modern print editions, but this one is from 1881 and in fair to good condition. The cover is really very striking with embossed lettering and little bottles labeled "syrup" and "bitters." This book would make for many hours of entertainment, and very possibly some sound common sense advice.
