Historical rabbit holes, for those who are inclined.

These slender booklets from Historical Management Associates are the work of an organization dedicated to historical re-enactment in the UK. They are written with a stickler’s attention to historical precision and a conviction that nothing is too arcane to investigate. Some of the books are simple transcriptions of period manuscripts; others represent significant original research, as in Cattle Farming and Grazing Management, which is 52 pages long but cites 36 sources, many of them published in the 17th century.


From the introduction:

“The recipes in this book have been drawn from a number of manuscripts from the 15th century and are based on transcriptions published by the Early English Text Society. For ease of reading letters no longer in use have been replaced by the nearest modern equivalents, The recipes published here have been selected to give those where the ingredients are reasonably available hence no bittern or crane.”

Staplebound pamphlet. 20 pages.
