It's also up on EEBO. Part of the problem is that it was unpaged. It's  
listed in the cataloguing records as [80] p.  I have a print-out from  
both EEBo and the UMI microfilms. I also have the Falconwood Press  
edition from 1990.

London Printed by A[dam] I[slip] for William Barley, and are to bee  
sold at his shop in Gratious street, neere Leaden-hall 1598

Holy S***!

It's being sold on Amazon!

libraries as Early English Books Online, this rare material is now  
available in single print editions. Thousands of books written between

of high quality historical reproductions. This collection combines the

more specific aspects of canning and preserving, meat carving, brewing  
beer and even candy-making with fruits and flowers, with a large  
resource of cookery and recipe books. Paperback: 88 pages; Publisher:  
EEBO Editions, ProQuest (July 13, 2010) Language: English

So this would be brand-new and priced on Amazon at $14.63.

They also list
A booke of cookerie and the order of meates to bee serued to the  
table, both for flesh and fish dayes With many excellent wayes for the  
dressing of all vsuall sortes of meates. (1629)

There's 13 listed under food and cookery.

Wow.  I asked EEBO years ago if they would consider doing something  
like this and now they have!
