All true and perfectly fair. On the other hand, since the recipe  
sections are as detailed and voluminous as a number of roughly  
contemporary sources that clearly are cookbooks, it might be said to  
be a little misleading to suggest it isn't a cookbook, probably to a  
similar extent as calling it just a cookbook.

I agree.

So, we could call it a dietetic treatise which includes/ contains / incorporates the detailed and voluminous cookbook of Martino.
