Do you collect old cookbooks? I have several  5 1/2 by 9 paper cookbooks. They are in good shape, clean pages and fully attached. They do smell musty as they were in a box in a a garage for years. None have ISBNs.

They are:

Stamps A la Carte by Ruth Webster (1973) from the Philatelic Assoc of New Mexico

Saving Ways Cookbook (Fancy Recipes Made Simple) Southwest Savings Bank Giveaway, year unknown

Cooking Mexican Style (1979) Part of the International Recipe Series

Cooking German Style  (1979) Part of the International Recipe Series

Cooking Hungarian Style (1979) Part of the International Series

Cooking Japanese Style (1979) Part of the International Series

The International Series are each about 26 pages of simple recipes of the classics from the country mentioned.

I don't think any of these have receipes that are unusual but I hope that they may appeal to someone who likes to collect cook books.

All are free. PM with name and address and which ones you are interested in. Thankls
