Pages from The Closet of Sir Kenelme Digbie Kt Opened

I photocopied some pages from the microfilm of the second (1671) edition of The Closet of the Eminently Learned Sir Kenelme Digbie Kt Opened: Whereby is Discovered Several ways for making of Metheglin, Sider, Cherry-Wine, &c. together with Excellent Directions for Cookery: As also for Preserving, Conserving, Candying, &c.

Joyce Miller has been transcribing recipes and posting them to the Mead Lovers Digest. I am collecting them here.

Scanned pages, low-resolution, grayscale.
