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 Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books.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

Liebig Company’s Extract of Meat is the result of abstract scientific researches into the nature of meat, which Justus von Liebig published in the year 1847, combined with the experience and inven- tive genius of the most eminent engineers.
