Lead me not into temptation

Oh, dear.

I found the following link through this article in the New York Times:

OldCookbooks.com


As if the in-print stuff wasn't seductive enough, there are now web sites whose specific trade is vintage food porn.

Fortunately, I have my vintage Julia Child, my Larousse Gastronomique (one of the things I'd try to grab in a fire: my Mema gave it to my mother, and she gave it to me), and my Joy of Cooking to snuggle with, so I have no immediate yen that beckons, but I suspect something will eventually come up.
