I am back with some more information as regards Annals of
the Caliphs' Kitchen.
The author's note--
*Nawal Nasrallah* was a professor of English and comparative literature 
at the universities of Baghdad and Mosul. As an independent scholar, one 
of her recent publications is /Delights from the Garden of Eden: A 
Cookbook and a History of the Iraqi Cuisine/(Authorhouse, 2003).

Delights from the Garden of Eden is described here:
I think Devra tried carrying copies but found that it didn't sell. 
Considered to be too expensive.

Someone has already asked about possible interlibrary loaning it in 
2008. At $195 I am not sure how many libraries
will actually buy a copy and even make it available for loan on their 
own campuses.
It may be regarded as being too expensive to loan.
