Winterthur Digital Collections

About this collection

Extremely rare and informative is this dinner book in the Downs Collection recording dishes served at dinners from 1740-1751.  The volume is most likely from the household of Viscount Robert Jocelyn, Lord Chancellor of Ireland.  Featured are dated table diagrams for mostly two-course meals with several more elaborate dinners like ball suppers.  Guest names are sometimes noted.
