For those that collect cookbooks...

what type do you collect? Or is it not anything specific and just any cookbook that you happen to like? Do you only buy cheap cookbooks at garage sales or do you pay good money for the cookbooks you want?

I'm considering starting a collection. I've pared things down so much that I am seriously considering adding some new things here, but I want to be selective. I have bookshelves, but have decided to be picky about what books are on them. I'd love to collect some cookbooks for starters.

I'm going to go window shop on ebay and see what types seem to interest me. :)

I prefer older ones, too. Specifically those from the Great Depression and WWII eras. Rationing cookbooks are my all time favs, though. Lots of good ideas, simple ingredients, and a great deal of them are one pot meals for the working woman with a family. Just wonderful.
