You should definetly have those books preserved, i bet there are services around that can digitize them / scan the pages to preserve the information in them.
So that other persons in future and now have the availability to read them.

Yeah, when Mom passed one of the biggest requests was for recipes from her "Cookbook" from family members of their favorite things she used to cook. I put "Cookbook" in quotes, because what we call her Cookbook was 2 loose leaf binders full of recipes she had started collecting from as far back as her Home Economics class days in school. Yellowed paper with handwritten recipes and notes about the same recipes, magazine clippings from the 70's on, all the way up to printed stuff from the web from a month before she went into the hospital. My brother digitized everything, he works for a copier company and has access to a lot of fancy machines, and we distributed a copy to all the relatives who wanted one. It was a good way to pass on her legacy and preserve it for the future generations.

The new processes are a lot easier and better than what used to be out there.
