This book also contains references to early forks.  LOTS of pictures. 
At the time of writing the book, the author had been collecting,
studying, and making spoons for 30 years.  He gives many comments from a
maker's perspective (ie, a spoon is claimed to not be serviceable for
eating but the author has been using a replica for quite some time with
no problems).


Those who can laugh without cause have either found the true meaning of
happiness or have gone stark raving mad.  -- Norm Papernick
