Default another good site for old cookbooks

Hi, all, I found this site yesterday when I was testing a new
search engine. It ranks right up there with the MSU site that I
posted before. I do wish that, like MSU, the books were also in
html, but still it is great to be able to look at the cookbooks.

http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/digital_books/

And yes, in spite of the URL, the books are almost ALL cookbooks.
