I know that Jane's spirit would frown at me if I didn't keep it all properly catalogued, so I've just finished updating the LibraryThing listing -- I believe that that's in order by newest-added-first, if you're curious, and these are the newest 20 or so in that list. The bulk of the books come from Mac and Moore's going out of business sale a couple of years ago, so the recent stuff is very heavy on transcriptions of primary sources; there are also the obligatory newer translations of period cookbooks, which I keep getting from Poison Pen. Items likely to be of particular interest to my friends include:
- A 1925 Primer of Medieval Latin.
- A 2-volume set of The Chester Plays.
- Annals of the Caliphs' Kitchens, a huge paperback Baghdadi cookbook.
- The Cartulary of the Knights of St. John.
- Scully's translation of Chiquart's Du Fait de Cuisine (one of the classic period cookbooks, particularly entertaining for its descriptions of subtleties).
- Castelvetro's Fruits, Herbs and Vegetables of Italy
- The Chronology of History, a delightfully useful book from 1833 (or thereabouts -- hard to be sure which edition this is), which is all about time and how its has been measured throughout the ages, including sections such as: the definitions of various historical "epochs"; long tables reckoning Easter and Good Friday and such; a chronological list of the major Church Councils; a listing of Saint's Days; and a glossary of the meaning of various date-related terms. The book is a bit delicate, but looks to be hugely useful for miscellaneous research.
Anyway, feel free to poke around. Since these are new, they're not boxed up; if you'd like to see any of them, drop me a note...
