I scanned this digital edition of The Cook's Oracle from an original copy, then image-processed each sheet to give the smallest files that are still legible on an 800 by 600-pixel video display. A high-definition version of each page, suitable for closer scrutiny or for printing, is available by following a link from the corresponding screen-sized page. For a copy of a CD containing a complete set of high-definition page images please contact me; this site cannot afford such bulk downloads.
