About the Collections Listed in this Guide

We have explored libraries, archives, museums, and government pages to bring you some excellent resources that pertain to historic cookbook and culinary collections. We have organized this guide by type of collection.

First, we compiled some of the best fully digitized historic cookbooks. These cookbooks are fully accessible through the Internet.

Next, we compiled a list of digitized culinary collections. Many of these collections include cookbooks as well as materials such as agricultural and home economic texts that relate to the culinary arts.

Last, we compiled a list of undigitized cookbook collections. These collections are rich in cookbook and culinary materials, but have yet to be digitized. Many of these institutions, however, provide digital listings of all the items in their collection.
