Downloading Historical Cookbooks

I came across a fantastic website, a non-profit, which has many historical and non-historical cookbooks available for download. They have various years, various types and in different formats (some in Kindle and mostly in HTML). For those trying to save money, this is a great resource for research.

Project Gutenberg: Books in Cookery

Some of the sample downloads available are The Whitehouse Cookbook (1887), Foods that will win the War and How to Cook Them (1918), Cookery and Dining in Imperial Rome by Apicius, Accomplisht Cook by Robert May, Forme of Cury, Book of Household Management by Mrs. Beeton… just to name a few.

Happy reading!
