About

Early modern recipe books
This project, a collaboration between the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC and the Wellcome Collection in London, contains digitized manuscript recipe books from the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries. It is funded by a grant to the Folger from the University of Sheffield as part of the AHRC-funded US-UK Food Digital Scholarship Network. The goal of the project is to provide a freely available platform for repositories to make their early modern manuscript recipe books available for crowdsourced transcription.
