Try a used bookstore or even Amazon for older versions of cookbooks like BC or BH&G.
And the dreaded evilBay as well; I’ve picked up a couple of ’50s-era “barbecue” books there. I have a 1958 copy (1st ed./4th printing) of the “Better Homes & Gardens Barbecue Book” and every so often I delve into it when I’m looking for a change of pace, but sadly Mrs. Chicken has decreed that we will not be serving Bowwow Bean Bake at our daughter’s wedding.[;)]
I was reminded by my veterans organization that we are just two weeks from the observation of “NATIONAL “PI” DAY, Saturday March 14, 2015 (3.14.15)

For some interesting (and inexpensive) cookbook choices, take a look at Hamilton Booksellers cookbook cataloge of bargain books. The cataloge is free..request it at their website, or just shop and order online. 70 pages of every sort of cooking activity you can think of… and all leass than $20, most in the $5-7 range. I buy a lot of books from these folks. They have most of the Sterns Books at reduced prices too, OH- these are new , not used books.
