In 2018, books were stocked across 27 categories and hundreds of sub-categories. That includes cookbooks. Some rare ones, possibly.
For the recipe-seeker and rare cookbook collector, this sale is dynamite. There is a whole section of cookbooks occupying the corner of one room. There are several tables, dozens of boxes, and a seemingly endless amount of cookbooks and books about food.
Sections range from international to vegetarian, beverages, special diets, baking and cake decorating, and vintage. There are also many celebrity cookbooks, and there's a whole section dedicated to the slow cooker. Spot everything from the old Betty Crocker's Cookbook to A Treasury of White House Cooking, The New York Times Cook Book, The Outdoor Cook's Bible, and everything Martha Stewart has ever put out.
