Old pastry recipe book

There's a nice book from 1907 with old recipes using lard. Here is chapter 2 - "pastry and pie making, pastes and fillings ..."

With the changeover to margarine, it is difficult to find recipes that use lard. Also, given that the lard sold in stores now is partially hydrogenated, it is probably safer to use old recipes with the kind of old-style lard that you produce at home.
