Default Historic cookbooks or collections online?

Where can I find complete collections of old cookbooks or recipes, online?


I'll give an example of an older cookbook (1898) that is complete (I find
the meat/game portions very interesting, as well as the useful hints
chapter... well, they are all good from a historical perspective)

http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/c...1-119.02-e.php


Any similar links?

Lots, apart from my site (www.theoldecookerybook.com) which doesn't have any
complete cookbooks (yet) you could go to
http://www.uni-giessen.de/gloning/kobu.htm for example and start exploring.

Thanks for starting this thread. It is good to see books reproduced
from relatively recent times, and not just antiquarian.

I am interested to see the bog standard British style recipes that
this Canadian book presents. I could not see anything in the list of
contents that uses native Canadian food.

The approach is quite different from what came later in Eleanor
Ellis's 1967 "Northern Cookbook".

I had a copy of Ellis's book once, but it obviously had little
relevance here in Australia. I can't lay my hands on it now and
probably gave it away. Nevertheless one recipe that sticks in my mind
is Jellied Moose Nose. You can see that recipe reproduced by visiting:

http://bertc.com/jelliednose.htm

As you will see, it cautions you to pluck the hairs from the nostrils
before you jelly the nose. As if one would not!

Returning to more serious matters, are there antiquarian Canadian
recipe books that advise the early settlers?

Damn!

I wondered where I'd gone wrong.

I really like the fact that you can see the original as well as
the html version. Therefore, if the scan is wrong, you have some
recourse!

This site, and Duke's ephemera site, got me interested in
collecting books and booklets myself.

Jean,

Visit this blog (which, for those of us who care about food history,
is fantastic):
http://theoldfoodie.blogspot.com/

Scroll down to: "Online Historic Cookbooks," on the right side of the
window.

This will take you to a PDF listing of virtually every old cookbook
that you can read for free. It's a wonderful resource.

Terrific!

I am reminded, too, of this site, which has grand aspirations. I
don't know how many books they will ultimately have online though.

http://www.foodsville.com/book/alpha

I have found it somewhat hard to navigate here (and thus the
tense), and it may require membership. I dunno. It's affiliated
with a Boston-area company that issues reprints of old books.

Actually, that previous link seems to be for books one can buy.
Here is the one for books one can read online:

I'm not so much interested in collecting books, rather trying some of these
interesting recipes out :-) I'm a bit of a history buff (and a foodie), and
I find the methods and creations quite interesting. I have a strong stomach
and not prone to the "ewww gross" attitude often either, I'll try anything
once so long as it's safe.

Indeed, great. I've saved the PDF and will be browsing.

I think the methods and results are quite interesting too. (I
won't mention the great sale I was at today then. g)
