We’ll have some great new books about early California and the Gold Rush in addition to titles on general history, exploration and books on books.
And, we’re excited to offer something different this time out; vintage cook books and related ephemera from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Before grocery and other stores sold a glut of magazines for women, books like The Standard Book of Recipes and Housewife’s Guide werereference guides thatinformed readers on day-to-day topics like ‘domestic medicine’; animal husbandry, practical mechanics and home decoration beyond the expected standard recipes.
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
