More historic cookbooks

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but the Historic American Cookbook Collection has loads of old cookbooks available online. Terribly non-vegan from my first look at it, but there may well be some bit that can be 'veganised'.
This one has some vegetable soup recipies towards the bottom, working on a basic principle of 'hurl vegetables into pot. Add something meaty. Boil. Lots'. And there's this:

Bread soup.
Ingredients. Dry bread, broken in bits, water, salt and pepper, an onion and a little fat.
Soak the bread in boiling water for a few minutes, add the onion sliced and fried in the fat; salt and pepper well.

There's a recipie for the end of a store cupboard.
