The Receipts containing information more especially applicable to domestic matters and the requirements of every-day life, deserve more than a passing notice, as no pains have been spared to make them comprehensive, thorough, and clearly understood; showing not only what must be done, but how to do it, in order to attain any desired result; giving the materials used, their proper proportions, and how to prepare, mix and apply them; introducing also, wher ever advisable or necessary, reliable tests for the purity, strength, etc., of the substances brought into requisition. This principle of testing is a noticeable feature throughout the Encyclopedia.
In the Medical department, each recipe or formula is adopted for its efficacy only, without reference to any particular School of Medicine. Some of them are published for the first time in this work, being obtained from the private memoranda of a distinguished physician, and other similar sources.
With the exception of general, but thorough, directions for Curing, Preserving, Pickling and Canning, Culinary receipts have been avoided, as they may be found in any reliable Cookery Book; the design of this work being to afford only such information as is not otherwise easily attainable.
