Traditional Scots Recipes Book-1922

I treated myself to a,"book dive" at a local thrift store yesterday and was not disappointed!  There in the section of history books was this great old cookbook of traditional recipes from Scotland! Many of the recipes refer to cooking items and methods that are foreign to me (a "knob" of butter), but the way the recipes are written is so enjoyable.  I could almost hear the recipes in the voice of Mrs. Hughes, the housekeeper from Downton Abby!  

And, I must share some of the pen and ink bookplates!  

I hope some of you  Downton fans are reading my post this week!  Go look for this book!  It's by Janet Murray and the publisher was Bramhall House.
