We are now gathering together cookbooks published during 19th Century Victorian England.  Featured are recipes for preparing the food and drink available during that time, with much discussion about Domestic Service.  Also newly acquired are interesting Trade Catalogues for the types of cast-iron stoves used in both city and country households. The engraving represented here is from Mrs. [Maria Eliza] Rundell's A New System of Domestic Cookery, ca. 1800's.  You will also find listed many scholarly books written about this period, well-written and well-researched.  For more information call (831) 251-9218
