When my mother-in-law died, her children were uninterested in her books, so I rented a storage garage to keep and sort them for my children. One of the treasures is a full colored book published in 1937 by the West Virginia State Road Comission - West Virginia Historic and Scenic Highway Markers, very evocative of that time period.
And I recently acquired another local history book which no one else on LT has listed - An American Legacy: The Oglebay Story, about one of the founders of Wheeling, WV.
But I'm hoping that isn't a ULTB for long as it is an excellent book and I'm not the only LTer in the area.
Although I have about 100 "oncers" I have not (yet :-) tagged them ULTB.
I imagine each city can throw up a niche book. eg.
I also have a few Soviet era Latvian books (not yet catalogued) which I also
expect to be ULTB's
I am more surprised that some of my Political Cartoon books (quite popular in Australia) are also unique to LT.
How/where did you find the "ULTB tag page"? say starting from the "home" page.
The way I refound it, was I typed in ULTB in the search box on the upper right. The result is a blank page with no results, except that in the list of page types on the right you'll see "tags" with (3). So you punch on that, and you'll get the list of 3 tags which contain ultb, including the big one, which I am referring to.
The othe way to get to the tag page is to go up to the top of this page and punch on Group: Unique Library Thing Book Group . When you get to the ULTB book page, go to the Topic: Have you checked your list lately? Read the first message and there is a link to the ULTB tag page. I had remembered that the link was posted in that message.
I suspect that a lot of the needlework/craft oriented ones are craft magazines or pattern pamphlets.
