This Rumford Complete Cookbook isn't just any old Rumford cookbook you can find almost anywhere, any time. What makes this one special? It's chock full of handwritten and clipped recipes from the early 20th century. The book itself is in tatters. The front cover is torn completely off and there is no back cover. The spine lying inside the pages. But what's inside (beside the spine) is a rare treasure trove of old recipes. I only pictured a couple of examples. Recipes are written in, glued in, and loose. Beautiful old handwriting and clippings from yellowed, fragile newspapers. You will enjoy the warm feeling of simply holding this book in your hands. It was obviously a favorite, perhaps the only, cook book of the previous owner. Long forgotten by family who had no interest in the torn book and those "old fashioned" recipes. But you and I know the truth, don't we? These recipes are to be cherished and preserved.


US shipping price has been estimated to the furthest point in the US from me. If yours is less, you will be refunded the difference. Or you may ask before buying and the appropriate adjustments can be made.
