I sold this book a few months before I started this blog. Yesterday, I discovered these pictures on my harddisk. I'm really glad I did and I'm really sorry I sold the book. I realise more and more how extraordinary it is. This cookbook is from 1927 or so, it is written by F.S.C. Oldeman but is based on 'Betje, de goedkoope keukenmeid' (translated: Betje, the cheap kitchenmaid'). The first edition of that cookbook appeared somewhere around 1850, a classic book aimed at households with tight wallets.
