We glanced through it and couldn't find a recipe section. Where is it?

Romoli, Domenico. La Singolare dottrina di M. Domenico Romoli. In Venetia : presso Gio. Battista Bonfadino, 1593. 
Available online at the link that Brighid pointed out:

Any suggestions as to where one would obtain a copy?

I ILLd mine and copied it.  Even though it is a German book the useful parts of the book (the transcription of the recipes and the glossary) are in Italian.  So it still comes in handy.
