Antique and Rare Cookbooks: VintageCookbook.com’s category for truly antiquarian cookbooks–that is, cookbooks that are over 100 years old (or darn close.) This is also the category for truly rare cookbooks, and for those historic cookbooks with fairly limited first editions that are very difficult to find. Vintage Cookbook’s antiquarian and antique cookbooks and cook books, from out-of-print, used reading copies to rare first edition/first printing antique cookbooks. Antique, vintage and collectible American cookbooks published in the United States during 1700s, 1800s, and early 1900s are here, along with many first edition antique cookbooks!
