County Histories of Iowa

We have county history books for most, if not all, of the counties in Iowa!  Good golly!  The histories live at the Central Library and don't leave the building but they do enjoy visitors.  A few sample titles: 
Biographical and Historical Record of Ringgold and Union Counties.  Two for one!  Actually this is fairly common.   Greene/Carroll, Butler/Bremer, and Chickasaw/Howard are other double-county mashups.  (Mashups!  We're so hip!) 
Then there is the History of Winneshiek county with biographical sketches of its eminent men.  If you were not eminent, or male, I'm guessing the cookies were pretty tough.
