At Home in Renaissance Italy

I too must chime in that this is a fabulous book. The price that
Amazon is selling it for is a whopping 37 per cent off the regular price
of $85. The UK price is 45 pounds. So being able to buy it at 53.55
is a bargain. Oh, I should mention that it weighs so much that there is 
an extra shipping fee.
It's a massive book! But well worth it. The essay on meals is written by
Allen J. Grieco.

I have come across an example on page 114 of the new volume

exhibit .
