Set of 3 Vintage Cookbooks: Food from Market to Table, Three Meals a Day, Busy Woman’s Cookbook


This set of vintage cookbooks includes three titles that offer a glimpse into the history of cooking and homemaking.

The first book, “Food From Market to Table,” was published in 1940 and provides a comprehensive guide to buying and cooking food for everyday meals and special occasions. The book shows signs of heavy use, with fading and staining on the pages, but offers a wealth of information and recipes for readers interested in traditional cooking methods.

The second book, “Three Meals a Day,” was published in 1949 and contains 480 pages of recipes and cooking tips. The book is well-worn, with considerable wear to the cover and some pages separated from the spine. However, it includes several hand-written recipes for time-tested desserts, as well as a bonus recipe for Governor Sauce.

The third book, “Busy Woman’s Cookbook,” was published in 1971 and offers shortcuts and make-ahead cooking tips for busy homemakers. The book is in very good condition and includes colored photographs, as well as a dust jacket with moderate signs of wear.
