Recommended Posts

There is finally a copy of Eliza Acton's "Modern Cookery in all its branches ... for Private Families" available online.

It is at Google Books

http://books.google.com/books?id=5-kDAAAAQ...ookery&as_brr=1

(her English Bread Book is there too)

For some reason the graphics dont always show up when you load it, but you can still download it and it works fine.

Happy Feasting

My Blog "The Old Foodie" gives you a short food history story each weekday day, always with a historic recipe, and sometimes a historic menu.

If you love Google Books you'll also love the Internet Archive. Same idea, several other methods of viewing (I love their 'post-it' note version)

It is at http://www.archive.org/index.php

I didn't even know such a thing as Google Books existed until now.

:shock: Neither did I! What a treasure chest to find! Whew, I wonder where I am going to fit my life in, between eGullet and reading throught all of those books.

Thanks for pointing me there :smile:

(also, what a great solution for people like me, whith a ravenous hunger for reading but only an appartment the size of a stamp to cram all the material in)
