eBook Update

The latest items in this week:

Prefaces and Prologues to Famous Books (from the Harvard Classics). This collection of prefaces is mostly drawn from SCA period -- there are a number by William Caxton (the man who got publishing going in England), as well as Spenser, Bacon and Raleigh. The end of the book runs past period (Newton, Wordsworth, Hugo, etc), but there's plenty here that is potentially of interest to the SCA scholar.

Chocolate and Cocoa Recipes has nothing whatsoever to do with SCA period. But it's an early 20th-century book entirely of recipes involving chocolate, apparently focusing on the dessert cuisine of New England, so my lady wife would kill me if I didn't note this one down. As far as I can tell, this book is essentially an extended advertisement for Baker's Chocolate, but a lot of the recipes sound very tasty...

(Edit: it's worth noting, BTW, that the latter has fudge recipes specific to Vassar, Smith and Wellesley...)
