Vintage recipe books

Just a sample, "Sandwiches" circa 1905 (full-book scan)....and if you get the taste there's loads more here at the Iowa Digital Library, Szathmary Collection..... "The University’s collection includes more than 4,000 promotional recipe pamphlets, published mainly by food and appliance manufacturers and trade associations (the majority are listed in this index). Dating from the late 19th century to the present, this advertising ephemera reflects the evolution of the modern American diet."
