Rare old book from 1890, containing over a thousand recipes from that day. Some beginning pages are missing, but the whole book is 527 pages. Many of these recipes cannot be made anymore, such as green turtle soup. There is even a Passenger Pigeon recipe. The Passenger Pigeon became extinct in 1914.
There are unusual recipes too, like rabbit soup and stew. This book was reprinted only once, in 1892, and it is very rare too. It's 10 x 8 x 2 1/2.
This book is not in the best shape, but if carefully handled, will yield many hours of fascinating reading and cool recipes. Imperial Cook Book (1890) HC, Grace Townsend, rare antique.
There is even a chapter on "Foods for Invalids"! And another on frogs and eels! The secondary name for this book is: A. Monitor for the American Housewife in the Dining Room and Kitchen.In my shop, I have many more interesting books... Put items in your cart and request a final price, and I will invoice. Please take a look at my shop for more great buys. It makes it easier on everyone. This is a shop where you never know what you will find.
I try to feature all vintage items ranging from more common goods to exquisitely rare collectibles. All offerings are posted with one thought in mind: that you find items here interesting and/or desireable, and that some of them may become your very own. I hope you have fun browsing.
A little about me personally: I live in a smallish northern California college town. Though for me, college was a very long time ago! Recently I had a medical incident occur which has left me on permanent disability.
So, having been a collector of vintage things all my life, I have decided to share some of my holdings with you. It is time to let others enjoy some of these things. It's just me here, behind the desk.
So I will try to make my offerings and service to you first class. I also try to make my listings themselves entertaining and fun and each item is loaded with information. (For example, on all my sheet music listings, there's links so you can actually hear every song I list). Most sellers don't have the time or inclination to do listings like that, but I do, so I try to add that extra polish to each listing. Quality items deserve quality listings, right?Anyhow, thanks for checking out my listings, and have fun! I do my best to accurately describe each item as best as I can. Finally, thank you for looking at my item(s) and/or my shop. So a huge thank you to you!
