I thought some of you folks might be interested in this.  This project digitizes classic, out of print cookbooks.  You can view online or download PDFs.

That's very cool. I wish there was some way to submit books because I have several from the late 1800s and early 1900s.

You could always ask.  Their FAQ is under "The Project", and there's a contact name & # to ask about donating cookbooks.  This person should be able to tell you whether there's any way to contribute scans without giving up the actual book.

AHA! Thank you. I looked and somehow missed that.

I actually (sort of) tried a recipe from one of their books once -- Scalloped Hard-boiled Eggs. Except I microwaved it instead of baking it, and it exploded. It tasted OK though.

(keep in mind, too, that back then nobody knew or cared what cholesterol or saturated fat was. Cream and butter and lard, oh my!)
