I have a modest collection of cookbooks, many of them older. Several were my mother's. My favorite at the moment is "When Meals Were Meals: Recipes and Recollections From a Farmhouse Kitchen" by Maude Dickinson. It was published in 1967, but the recipes and stories are from an earlier time. The stories about her childhood in Kansas are just as good as the recipes.
I also have a small notebook full of medieval recipes that I found in various places online - some are quite good!

I have a fairly large collection of cookbooks in storage right now, but I do remember that some of them are Church Cookbooks, and the Better Homes & Gardens Encyclopedia of Cooking that I bought at the local grocery store, with my Christmas Bonus from that Grocery Store where I worked at the time. I am always on the lookout for new cookbooks.

Recently I bought this 1936 Wooden Cover Cookbook. The place I bought it from bound it with the color rings. Can anyone tell me how it was originally bound? What would be an approximate value on it? I don't plan on selling this. I will be adding it to my collection and even making some of the recipes from it.

My Mom is an inspired cookbook collector and cook. The sunroom has become a cookbook library...we have hundreds. She especially loves cookbooks that have handwritten recipes and notes, along with little "food splashes" of love. Her latest is from 1876 and is dedicated to "the plucky housewives of 1876 who master their work instead of allowing it to master them." Great advice. This copy belonged to a Mrs I.A. Morrow who lived in Yankton, Dakota Territory. Mom has made several of her recipes, handwritten in the center of the cookbook, and all have been marvelous. What a book...even has chapters on the care of the sick, antidotes for poisoning, the cellar and ice house, the laundry, curing meat, managing help, etc. Our grandmothers were amazing. Reading a cook book can be a lesson in the history of our country.

Up The Creek, I've got a ton of vintage cookbooks, several seafood related come on by and take a look if you want...

Twice Around, I love those old cookbooks, especially the appliance ones! I have a few in the store right now I'm hoping someone will want. What IS it about the older cookbooks anyway, huh? I know I do especially love the ones with the old black & white photos and illustrations....

How about the rest of y'all?

I just got into re-selling books with another dealer friend (Arthur). he and I are green when it comes to cook books and what people are looking for. Perhaps I will gin more insight following this group for a while? I also hope to contribute when possible.
God Bless You James Brookins
