Note about browsing the pages:  The pages are presented in the order in which they were originally.  Some pages are handwritten recipes that are NOT tested; use your discretion.  Some recipes are in Czech and are, as of now, untranslated.  Feel free to submit translations of these if you are able. 

In addition, some recipes are not food; there is one recipe that is a floor polish recipe that uses turpentine (not recommended!).  Remember, this was 1913 and ovens were unlikely to have timers or temperature control.  Please consult baking times for similar items in modern day cookbooks or resources for time and temperatures.
