Historical Cooking Books: – The American pictorial home book; or, Housekeeper’s encyclopedia by Harriet Almaria Baker (1883) – 16 in a series

November 18th, 2018 Comments off

Archive.org has a host of old cookery books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books. I’ll be sharing more books as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas

THE AMERICAN PICTORIAL HOME BOOK,

OR

HOUSEKEEPER’S ENCYCLOPEDIA,

Is the result of many years of earnest effort and practical study. It is a work that may be studied with pleasure and profit during the hours of ease and leisure, and in cases of emergency it can be referred to as a judicious friend and adviser in a remedial point of view.

It is unsurpassed as a valuable Reference Book for young housekeepers, and a prompt and ready guide in all household matters ; in caring for the Sick and directing Servants ; in the Nursery, Laundry, Dairy, Poultry and Farm Yards, the Garden, Etiquette, etc. Its recipes and suggestions are applicable to all climates and all conditions of life.
