First Ownership of Ohio Lands
"This important publication identifies the 1,000 associates of the Ohio Company who purchased lands on the Muskingum River, 1788-1792, with such information, in tabular form, as residence, selling agency, and number of shares owned. Additionally there is a two-page list of the "French Inhabitants and Actual Settlers of the Town of Gallipolis" in 1795. Prefixed to the work is an extensive essay tracing the history of the "Crown Lands" and the settlement of Ohio and also listing the purchasers of lots in the counties of Columbiana, Jefferson, Munroe, and Belmont, giving the number of the lot, acreage, price, and political division."

Recipes From the Old Country and the New

Cincinnati Recipe Treasury: The Queen City's Culinary Heritage
"Every page speaks of the book's authenticity, containing historical anecdotes, celebrity comments, collectible line drawings of the city. For Cincinnatians-at-heart living elsewhere, for visitors who enjoyed the city's hospitality, for all genuine Cincinnatians, what better way to remember the Queen City than through her friendly and surprisingly imaginative kitchens."

I'll Cook When Pigs Fly......and They Do in Cincinnati: Bits & Bites of Queen City Cuisine
"See how pigs really do fly in Cincinnati, then check out these unique recipes -- truly a new twist on some old favorites. Lots of fun trivia, facts and quotes about Cincinnati. Awesome photography by award-winning Cincinnati photographers. The cover is by Pulitzer Prize Winner Jim Borgman. Benefits various community projects."

A Taste of Ohio History: A Guide to Historic Eateries and Their Recipes icon
"From a list of over 200 dining establishments in Ohio, Debbie Nunley and Karen Jane Elliott have selected approximately 100 restaurants for the second volume of the popular A Taste of History "TM" series. The authors focus on restaurants of significant historical interest. Some of these are inns, taverns, and roadside hostelries that have been in business for many years at the same site. Others -- former doctor's offices, mills, firehouses, and barns -- have been converted from other uses but still retain their original flavor. In addition to capturing the historical ambience for the reader, this guidebook serves as a cookbook. Each entry includes two or three recipes from the featured restaurant, so readers can reproduce their favorite dishes. There is something here to suit everyone, whether their taste runs to haute cuisine or simple country fare."

Plain and Happy Living: Amish Recipes and Remedies icon
"Byler, an Old Order Amish from Middlefield, Ohio, offers an autobiographical medicine diary and recipe book, that's been over 50 years in the making. Here are recipes for general tonics, poultices, plasters, and remedies for specific ills, instructions for making soap, furniture polish, glue, and varnish remover, plus recipes for everything from cherry pie to Rivvel Soup. Illustrations."

Centennial Buckeye Cook Book
By any standard the Centennial Buckeye Cook Book was the most important cookbook to have originated in Ohio in the nineteenth century. It included more than three hundred pages of good recipes for jellies and jams, soups and sauces, fruits and vegetables, meats, poultry and fish, and confectionery, cakes and pastry, and many more. It was, however, much more than just a cookbook. Some editions featured information about medicine and the chemistry of food, how to do the laundry, how to make icehouses, hints for the sick and, most unusual, hints for the well. The book was a reflection of home life in Ohio and America before the twentieth century totally swept aside rural American life styles.

"The first edition of the Centennial Buckeye Cook Book was published in 1876. Between 1876 and 1905, a total of thirty-two editions of the cookbook were published, and more than one million copies sold. The book began as a project of the Marysville, Ohio, First Congregational Church when the women of the church decided to publish a cookbook in order to raise money to build a parsonage. Their effort launched a cookbook that rapidly became one of the most popular publications of nineteenth-century America. This is the first reprint of the original 1876 edition."
