Detailed Description
Prepared by guest curator Mary Anne Canton, this delightful catalog includes an essay by Professor Joan Thirsk of Oxford University on the wide range of foodstuffs and seasonings familiar to Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Materials from the Folger collection that are described and illustrated include books on herbs and medicine, laws governing the baking of bread and the importing of spices, household accounts, gardening journals, printed and manuscript recipe books, and even student plays. The manuscript recipe book compiled by Sarah Longe about 1610 is transcribed in its entirety. All these materials permit us to see into the gardens, kitchens, butteries, and cellars of Shakespeare's day and to experience some of the food grown, prepared, and stored there. Canton, Mary Anne, copyright 1999. ISBN: 0-295-97926-7. Paperback, 128 pages, 70 illustrations.
