Welcome to the Beautiful Book Boutique. AbeBooks has many millions of books, many of which are rare books, collectible books, antiquarian books or unique books. They range in subject from collectible children's books and coloring books to out-of-print sports books and more. And every day, thousands of books sell and thousands more are added from booksellers all over the world.
This time around we're taking a look at some of the unique and beautiful old cookbooks we have on the site. Whether we're considering titles, content, or even cover design, it's clear to see things have changed in the last hundred years. Food has evolved, ingredients have changed, health priorities are different - cookbooks are very different today than yesterday.
Take for example Cook and Be Cool by Marie Harrison, from 1928. Not only does "be cool" have a different meaning than it did then, but there was no air-conditioning in private homes then, either. But some things never change - people love to cook, love to share recipes and love to eat - and everyone loves beautiful books.
Please note: prices are approximate to within a small margin, as currencies fluctuate. Quantity on rare books extremely limited; copies on display may sell quickly.

.32 acp has a rim dia .358"/ case of .338"/ case length.680' so .020" larger DIAMETER RIM THAN CASE.
from memory they seemed to be rimless like .45acp. ONLY A 10 THOU DIFFERENCE hardly noticeable
.32s&w- rim is .378 case-.339" length.605"
.32 long case rim =.375" , CASE =.337" , LENGTH .920"
last time i used one of them colt .32 acp was spanish american war.
went to larger calibers since, shelved the antique colt.32... books dotn show CUP pressures, so . . .you maybe ok firing the.32acp in the 32s&w long cylinder maybe it wont generate as much pressure
