Out of print cookbook

I am looking for a copy of "Calabria e Lucania In Bocca" . The author is Beppe Mallo and it was published in the 1970's by Il Vespro. Anyone have a copy they are willing to sell?

  1. I don't, but has I sapori di Calabria e Lucania by Beppe Mallo for 8.91 Euro, a paperback issued in 2007, which is quite possibly a reprint under a different name.

      Thanks, but I'm looking for the original published in the 1970's.

    2. Try asking Michelle Fabio over at Bleeding Espresso. You never know, she's down there and might be able to find one.

      1. The series published by Il Vespro is now out of print; the Calabria volume appears to have been reissued by another publisher, as " bocca" with recipes as per the original in Italian, dialect, and English. Here's a link to the listing on the Hoepli publishers web site:
        The title I reference and the amazon title listed by Zerlina may well be the same text, but is unlikely to have the same distinctive production values as the original, brown paper pages and corrugated covers and all. I have the one on Liguria. Try contacting the NYC bookshop Kitchen Arts and Letters ( for a search, which they'll do.

          Thanks. I know about the Hoepli edition, but I will check with Kitchen Arts in NYC. I know they're out of print but I'm looking for someone who has one who is willing to sell.....
