There are at least two different versions of Willan's book.
It was revised with better photography and graphics when it was re-released
and she added yet another cook to the mix.
It's come out in a less expensive reduced format paperback edition that 
was being remaindered for
less than $5 a copy.
Wheaton's volume is Savoring the Past. The Delectable Past is probably 
the Esther B. Aresty book.
