This one intrigues me. The website emphasizes that this is the first
*complete* English translation. I know of Eileen Powers' translation, and
know there's been another (I forget the author's name), but wasn't aware
that neither was complete. Does anyone know what might have been left
out? If it isn't cooking-related, it might be a "take it from the library"
book rather than a "buy my own copy" book.
