And if you are doing Martino there's also the very nice CD-rom edition
Martino: Coquinaria (Edition, 1 CD) 1-891788-83-3
Commentary by Gillian Riley,
- Foreword by Alice Waters of Chez Panisse
- Essay: Maestro Martino’s Cookery Book and Its Manuscripts, by Bruno 
Searchable, cross-linked English translation of the Italian text by 
Gillian Riley
- Note on the calligraphy by Paul Shaw
- Magnify up to 400%

It's nice to have both in one's collection and of course the true 
completist will also
want Claudio Benporat's works that feature Martino too. Those can be 
and shipped in from Italy.
