    If the book is copyrighted, then you may not publish it. You'll be violating the copyrights then.

    There's a limit on copyright. It's been a while since I checked. I think it may be around 60 years before work becomes public domain. Check to see what the law states to be sure, but if they are pretty old books, you may be able to publish them.

    If you intend to republish those books on a website you should first investigate copyrights attaching to the originals, as HappyWife suggested.

    For your general information, the U.S Copyright Office states that:

    Mere listings of ingredients as in recipes, formulas, compounds, or prescriptions are not subject to copyright protection. However, when a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook, there may be a basis for copyright protection.

    Just pay some money to the publisher and the author if he is there. Also promise to credit them in their website. They would be happy to allow you.

    If you do so without their notice it might get you in some problem.
