I'm interested in older paperback type cookbooks from the 1940's through the 1970's.  If anyone has any, lets talk!

I have some booklet series, see a sampling in my Etsy store http://www.etsy.com/shop/prettycheap?section_id=12759274 (scroll down past the craft books to the Pillsbury, and so forth).  The bottom one by Gold Medal is from the 1950s, very very retro and beautiful.

Many are not listed, is this what you are looking for?

Search vintage recipe books on Etsy or eBay and you will find tons! They are harder to come by anymore. I collect as well and have a hard time finding any reasonable. I've seen some priced at over $100! Crazy, but I am sure someone out there will pay it, it won't be me, but someone may.....Good luck!!
