About this Item

First published in 1611 under the title Arte de cozina, this important Spanish cookbook offers popular dishes of French and Portuguese as well as native origin, and also documents the lasting influence of medieval Islamic culture on Spanish cuisine. Mart?nez Monti?o had a long and successful career as royal cook for Philip II, Philip III, and Philip IV of Spain; the menu from one of his best-remembered spectaculars, an extraordinary Christmas feast, is recorded in the Conduchos de navidad of 1584. In the present work he offers classics such as olla podrida, chorizos de puerco, tortillas, various savory versions of capirotada (a layered bread dish known from ancient times), and a section of dishes in "[h]ojaldre" ? b'stilla-like recipes. None of the 17th- and 18th-century printings are particularly common, but this stated 15th impression is even less so ? RLIN and OCLC show no holdings of our Doblado, 1797 printing. 8vo (16 cm, 6.3"). [1 of 4] ff., 420 of 480 pp. Palau 155373; for earlier editions: Bitting 329; Cagle 1216; Vicaire 607. Contemporary vellum, cockled. Incomplete copy: Lacks 3 preliminary leaves, pp. 1?14, and 435?80. Top margin closely cropped. Textblock separating at pp. 338/339. Some bug-spotting. Title-page torn with loss of portion of imprint area; title-page mounted. A copy for an impoverished scholar or busted bibliophile. Bookseller Inventory # 29787
