FOUND: Aunt Jenny's Spry cookbook, Wilson's milk,Rumford BP recipe books Sign In/Join

I found these cook books all dated around 1945 and before. ONE the Wilson's Milk cook booklet has a catalog for premium pots/pans etc you can get for labels!

DO you think there's any value to them?
I also found a cook booklet form 1965 Kelloggs Cornflake cook booklet.

By no stretch of the imagination am I an expert but I think they would be too common to be worth much. I have a recipe booklet put out by a life insurance company dated 1918 and from what I found it is not worth much. Maybe $5 - 10 tops.

That is what I am basing my guess on about yours.

They must rate them with family bibles! I understand from Roadshow that family bibles are not worth money just family connections.

Thank you for your help!

Can't help on the value.

Just wanted to say that I have some of my late grandmother's recipes that specified Spry as an ingredient.

If they belonged to a relative, I'd keep them for sentimental reasons. Just my though.

As a collector of antique cookbooks, I have never paid more than $12 for any book, including a first ed of Fannie Merrit Farmer's cookbook. The pamphlet type ones go for no more than $3 around here and often they are sold in bundles of 3 or 4 of like type.. gas company, stove company etc.

I personally like them when they have been written in, spilled on and have stuff taped into them. Shows someone USED them.

I think I paid 50 cents for my Rumford book.


Life is GOOD!!
