<< I am not clear on your quibble on the number.
How many do you count? >>
I think my concern (not really important, to be sure) was to count single manuscripts and large groups of texts alike.
How would I count. Maybe this way:
In the Martino corpus there are four groups of texts.
First group: The Martino manuscripts (Italian)
1-1 Library of Congress manuscript
1-2 Vatican manuscript
Second group: The Platina corpus (Latin, vernacular translations)
(it includes Martino texts but adds medical information)
Numerous manuscripts and printings. (See Westbury, Milham)
Third group: The epulario corpus (Italian; English)
E.g. Venezia 1518; numerous
Fourth group: hitherto unclassified, disputed or unaccessible manuscripts
<< Would this be interesting to anyone? >>
I have no idea. In one respect the size of the Platina corpus and the Epulario corpus might be important:
in respect of the question, where and when Martino recipes were in use.
