A collection of above three hundred receipts in cookery, physick, and surgery : for the use of all good wives, tender mothers, and careful nurses. A Collection of above Three Hundred Receipts in Cookery, Physick and Surgery is an English cookery book by Mary Kettilby and others, first published in 1714 by Richard Wilkin. The book contains early recipes for plum (Christmas) pudding and suet pudding, and the first printed recipe for orange marmalade (without chunks). This version  is the second edition, containing an additional section dedicated to home remedies for the sick. The author recommended her book to the clergy, especially to those whose Parishes were remote from other medical help. It was fairly common for early English cookbooks to include such recipes, and Kettelby's work is a prime example and a valuable resource for anyone interested in 18th English foodways.
