Best Junior League Cookbooks?

I did a search here and couldn't find a thread re: which are the Junior League cookbooks one should have. (I'm especially interested in, but not exclusively interested in, Southern Cooking.)

I have Charleston Receipts, Talk about Good II, River Road Recipes, Savannah Style, The Plantation Cookbook, Some Like it South, Simply Simpatico,

Are there any obvious ones I'm missing...Junior League Cookbooks that are considered "must have"?

      2. The Plantation Cookbook is the one must have. (IMO)

        1. I own many of these--pick them up wherever I go and also look for them at thrift stores. A recent one is Tidewater on the Half Shell from the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach, VA. I haven't cooked from it yet but have earmarked many recipes to try--it has a large selection of appetizer recipes.

          1. Not junior league but I consider the best "community" cookbook to be the three published by the National Grange beginning with the BiCentennial year. People must keep them. I don't find them at the used book stores and my three are falling apart from use.
