    The Michigan State University Library and the MSU Museum have partnered to
    create an online collection of some of the most influential and important
    American cookbooks from the late 18th to early 20th century. The goal of
    this project is to make these materials available to a wider audience.
    Digital images of the pages of each cookbook are available as well as
    full-text transcriptions and the ability to search within the books, across
    the collection, in order to find specific information.
    Looking for recipes? You may enjoy some of the recipes featured by the
    Detroit Free Press.

    If these are not quite what you were looking for please see our 'Search the
    Collection' page for help in finding just the right one.

    Here is a partial list of the books that have been digitized so far;

    Thanks Squeaks,

    Another to add to my favorites.

    I find it interesting that the Old Recipes were written as narratives or
    more like an instruction manual.
    Maybe that's why I collect and read old cook books like a novel. They tell
    so much sociology and culture.

    ;-)

    This is the site that led to my collecting antique and old
    cookbooks. It's quite interesting--and potentially dangerous to
    anyone who is so inclined.

    Just about my favorite cookbook is James Beard's _American Cookery_.
    Originally published in 1972, I've gone through 2 copies and am on my
    third. He does many, many thumbnail sketches of the history of certain
    dishes, which is fun.

    I also have a cookbook that was my mother's called _The American
    Woman's Cookbook_ which was originally published in 1938. Mother's
    version was published in 1943 and has a section on "Wartime Cookery."
    The recipes are more imaginative than appealing!

    We have two versions. One came with my husband, who bought it to
    learn how to cook. The recipes for waffles and pancakes are good, I
    will attest.

    DH used to use the pumpkin pie recipe, but it always took too long to
    cook, so now he uses mine.

    The problem with old cookbooks (Gourmet magazine's 1957 & 1959 volumes) is
    that they're excellent recipes for those who wish to remain fat or fatter.

    [proudly in my possession!]

    Yep - nice one I also like NYT Craig Claiborne.

    However my all time favorite was a wedding present in 1965 " The complete
    American Jewish Cookbook" Certainly there are dishes not covered but the
    overall technique and the way the book is written makes it special. For
    years it was my cooking bible. There are many recipes I still use to this
    day.

    Green cover, candy pictures on the inside front cover I have a 1940
    printing - its a GREAT reference source. I specially like the way its
    indexed wit the cutout tabs. That one sits on my reference shelf.

    James Beard's book is the one I turn to first when I want an
    American recipe. I love it!

    We have that 1943 version of 'The American Woman's Cookbook' (got it at
    the free book exchange locally). The 'Wartime Cookery' section must have
    been added at the last moment before printing cos it isn't mentioned in
    the table of contents and comes after the index. Was wondering why there
    was no mention of the war until that section turned up. It's interesting
    enough.

    But the portion sizes in those books are very small compared to what
    Americans now think as normal.

    The 1943 American cookbook we are discussing gives these portion sizes:


    Meat: 'The weekly allowance of meat foods need not be higher than one
    and three-quarters pounds for each person in the family...This means an
    average daily portion of not more than a quarter of a pound.'

    Fat: 'For each grown person, every day, buy at least one and one-half
    ounces of fat (butter, cooking fat, cream, fat from meat, etc).'
    (Children are supposed to get half that much other than in milk.)

    Milk: '...three-quarters of a quart to a quart of milk a day...(everyone
    else) from one-third to one-half of a quart of milk a day.' (Cheese can
    replace part of the milk.)

    Vegetables/fruit: 'Women and little children will eat about two average
    potatoes and 1/4 lb other vegetables daily. Adolescents and men at hard
    work can eat two or three times that amount.'

    Sweets: 'Buy only moderate amounts of sugar, molasses, honey or sirup.'
    (Doesn't give precise amounts.)

    Cake and pie slices shown in the photos are much smaller than most
    people would serve now.

    There is a charming section on how to 'feed a family of five on $15.00
    per week'.

    Got the International Cookbook. Very first cookbook of any sort that I
    bought for myself in secondary school. Well used and well loved.
