I inherited these from my mother. We bought these during the 70's when a friend's father was a novice Britannica Encyclopedia salesman and these books were part of what he sold. They are great. Start with the glossary index in order to find the recipes. It is also a glossary/dictionary for culinary terms and procedures. The other volumes will take you step by step on everything from trussing a turkey to whipping egg whites.
