The Home Studies Collection

If you enjoy reading old recipe books, then we have just the thing for you. Our Home Studies Collection holds more than 700 books from the last three hundred years, from 18th century household manuals, to Victorian vegetarian recipes (fancy a lettuce sausage?) and war time cookery books. It’s a fascinating social history of the food we ate, how we prepared it and how we ran our homes. Just ask our Special Collections staff for more information.
