Take care if you choose to use ammonium carbonate as it is a skin and respiratory irritant. It is however currently certified for use in foods (as an additive) so I guess you could.

Your literary senses will be tickled to know (I suspect of course that you already do) that isinglass is used in the repair of parchment manuscripts (see references here: http://aic.stanford.edu/)

I particularly liked Lady Jekyll's chapter on food for invalids who should, she says, be tempted with little delicacies. I've issued instructions about what I would like to eat in the event that I should fall ill, but I haven't managed to do so yet. A mild headache should do nicely.

Does your book have a recipe for a fruit fool? I've not been able to come across one anywhere to match the "liquid" ingredient(s) described in Mapp and Lucia - the one concocted by Susan Poppitt's man Boon.
