Anyone read dated cookbooks?

pearlyriver | Nov 10, 2012 07:54 AM

I came across a public-domain cookbook called "The Cook's Decameron: A Study in Taste, Containing Over Two Hundred Recipes For Italian Dishes" and it seems good. It covers all the building blocks of Italian cuisine and the recipes sound good, although exact measurement of ingredients is not provided. Does anyone read or use out-of-fashion cookbooks?
