15 Mead, Ruth Honey cookery
Northern Bee Books, Mytholmroyd n.d. 0 907908 02 0 / 9780907908029 Paper covers V.g. No Jacket 
V.g. in soiled cover. [3] + 17 pp. Written by the appropriately named Ruth Mead (surely a pseudonym?) this little book interprets the term 'cookery' rather loosely as the recipes include furniture polish, cosmetics and medicinal preparations as well as the more conventional fare. Some of the suggestions are quite adventurous, e.g. 'honey mayonnaise'. The design suggests a c. 1980 date of printing; the ISBN indicates that this was only the second book to be published by Northern Bee Books, now the leading apicultural publisher in the UK.
