C'est arrivé! Pazzo Cookery Catalog 3 features a wide range of food related books from the 16th to the 20th century. Our focus, sort of, is on France including an array of less expensive regional cook books, though once again the largest section is Mexico with another selection of the books of the incomparable Josefina Velázquez de León, as well as a group of manuscript cookbooks. Rounding out the catalog is a likable group of Italian books including a number of books of secrets and some interesting mid 20th century items, as well as a smattering of English, American, Spanish, and other books. Noteworthy in this final section are a few collections of menus including chef signed, cruiseship and various restaurant and dinner party collections, and a small group of handcolored 16th century views of food related scenes. 142 items.
