historic American cookbooks on-line

Quote:
Feeding America: The Historic American Cookbook Project

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.
here's the link
http://digital.lib.msu.edu/projects/...oks/index.html

makes fascinating browsing - or download an entire cookbook (or several)

Thank you! I had meant to look at this site when I read the article and then completely forgot. Thanks for reminding us of it!

I could spend hours--days, actually!--on there!
