My Old Cookbooks Collection

Antique, out-of-print, rare, vintage, whatever you may call it. I started collecting old cookbooks during my stay in America. I bought them in antique shops and sale book shops. 10 years older cookbooks is considered vintage? I find great joy reading the old recipes and comparing them to new cookbook recipes.

The Castelar Creche Cookbook was published in 1922. It's worth $100 according to Antiquarian Booksellers' Asso. of America.

I guess this one is the oldest in my collection.
