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