I certainly _did_ notice the words that you call "weasel words", but I was humbly hoping that perhaps you could 

at least drop me/us one line pointing into the direction of your memory/recalling. 

Much to my surprise and with great joy I have read the two detailed postings with your 

notes from Flower/Rosenbaum and Grocock/Granger. The latter book I do not yet know and

I will certainly get it as soon as possible. And I wonder if I have ever read the introductory 

section of F/R or if I have forgotten what I have read then.

I must confess that I never saw the 1541 edition of Apicius. There are other late editions online

like the ones from 1490, 1542 and 1709, but I did not see the Alban Thorer volume.

Wisely spoken...

Thanks again!
