H. P. Hood & Sons was founded in in 1846, and they have been publishing cookbooks since they were first founded. (See one of the earliest cookbooks, Hood’sCook Book Number 3, here: https://www.vintagecookbook.com/product/hoods-cook-book-number-three/.) They also sent out monthly newsletters to subscribers, and the newsletters had recipes that the subscribers could cut out and place in their cookbooks. The first owner carefully clipped and taped many of these recipes into this volume. (See these images and VintageCookbook.com’s recipe file.) So, you are getting more than the advertised 1195 modern recipes.
