What obscure recipe book do you have and love?

I think there is a skill to collecting cookbooks. I refer to them all the time, but over time I have learned that you really only need a handful that have uncomplicated recipes that work to have all you'll ever need in your culinary library. Some of my favorites are Marcella Hazan, Ina Garten, Mark Bittman. All pretty well known. I also have a cookbook that I think may be out of print that I absolutely adore. It's called "Cooking from Quilt Country" by Marcia Adams. She used to have a PBS series years ago and she recreates Amish and Mennonite recipes. The food in this book is simple and often plain. But God it's delicious. I feel like somehow I am preserving old passed down family recipes by having it. Do you have any cookbooks you feel are precious, that we might not know about?
