    With some of the recipes that I run across in the older books that Grocer's Encyclopedia would be a very handy thing to have!

    That chicken picture makes me wanna cry about the loss of variety which we sacrificed it to make industrial production easier and more profitable. And that's, of course, not only the case for chickens.

    Thanks Steely, this is a cool thing. 10 bucks was some real money back in 1911!

    This book is amazing!

    Read the entries on "Adulterated", which is basically "processed", or "Cuttlefish Bone".

    This book is a nerdgasm.
