- A very scarce edition. This is a revised reprint of the the 1954 first edition of Italian Food. In the introduction by E.D. in this copy, she states that "this 1987 edition differs from its predecessors chiefly in that revisions made over many years in the form of footnotes to recipes have now been incorporated into the main body of the text". Printed 5 years before her death, this book is not commonly known to have been published and to be directly attributable to E.D. Very scarce.
