Extraordinary dessert recipe book from 1880 written by a woman in advance of the release of the well-known recipe book by P. Artusi. According to archive research Augusta Oddi was a land owner from Salisano (current province of Rieti) which explains why she knew how to write. It is entirely legible, albeit ruined by aging. Also interesting for publication.

Inside there are about 130 recipes (mainly desserts), listed in two indices. There are also scattered sheets with as many recipes, a photo with perhaps the author of the recipe book, a letter to "Giovannino" from 1920 and a recipe for making soap.

Here is an excerpt:

“Paste di mandorle
Prendete una libra di zucchero 10 rossi d’uovo, si devono le dette cose porre entro un catino e sbattersi un’ora assieme ad una libra di mandorle ben pestate. Si deve poi unire a queste 9 oncie di fiore e si fanno levitare circa un’ora nello stesso catino dove sono state battute. Le mandorle devono essere allessate. Dopo la levitatura si devono mettere sopra all’ostia e per dargli la forma che una vuole bisogna bagnarsi le dita nell’acqua. Poi come si trovano si mettono al suolo e si cuociono con un forno giusto”.

Here is an excerpt from the second index:
“27 Fave fine
28 Africanine
29 Amarette alla modenese
30 Turchetti
31 Croccante
32 Pizza di cioccolata
33 Coretti
34 Paste cosiddette favorite
35 Paste di mandorle
36 Paste dette di fichi”.
