19th Century Cook Books

I've been collecting a resource of Google Cook Books from the 19th Century below is my list to date. Note that some are no longer available on Google books. This is one of the reasons I will download a copy for myself for research purposes. The one time I didn't copy my original source and an editor questioned me on it, the resource disappeared when I went to show the editor the information. It's a lesson I learned early in my writing career. I was able to prove my facts but it took a lot more time.

So if one of these cook books is important to your character and their story than you might want to download a copy for your records. Enjoy!
