I think this is probably Luis Benavides-Barajas.  The name popped up on the 
list five or six years ago in a bibliography from a book on Spanish culinary 
traditions (IIRC).  According to my notes, he's a noted culinary author in 
Spanish with at least 15 books to his credit.  Again IIRC, I've read one 
small modern piece by him translated into English and found the prose a 
little florid.

Since I haven't read his work, I can't begin to address it's accuracy.  A 
quick search on his name in relation to the Florilegium shows that Huette 
raised a question about the historical accuracy of his recipe for alfajores.
