Is there someone out there who has a "Depression Era cookbook" that they are willing to share with me? I would appreciate it so very much. Thank you for your time and kindness. Take care, God bless you, and your loved ones.
Dover books have a lot of vintage type books and they are reasonably priced. Th is sounds like something they would have. You could look through their selection here.
I get sample of their books in my email, they have a lot of good books on unusual things, like Victorian Clothing, Paper Dolls, etc.
I have a cookbook from 1941. Are you looking for a particular recipe? I would never part with the cookbook but am willing to share a recipe.
I collect cookbooks and don't wish to part with any, but if you'll tell me what kind of recipes you're looking for, I'll see what I can find.
amazon.com has them

You can go to www.amazon.com and click on "Books", then type in Depression Era Cookbooks. There is a book by Patricia R. Wagner that you may be interested in. Also, Clara's Kitchen which looks adorable because Clara actually experienced the Great Depression. You can also type in "depression era recipes" and check that out. Good luck and I send you happiness from my kitchen to yours. Sharon Stone Gibson, Costa Rica
I have even downloaded some books orignially publish in the 16th & 17th centries.I have found these free books at Amazon eBooks. You don't need a Kindle to read them just down load the free Kindle software to your PC and then you can get as many free ebooks as you can wish. The books are all public domain. I shortened the url to http://tinyurl.com/3e2cjhr or just go to Amazon and type in free ebooks.
