For those interested, the Half Price Books on Preston (just north of LBJ) has several copies of this book, which is subtitled "The Tudor Kitchens of King Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace."  Sticker price is $9.98, and they are having 15% off your whole purchase due to remodeling.  This is the British version (is there an American one?) and combines descriptions of each room or area with recipes (unhappily, no originals that I've seen so far) and instructions, and quite a lot of photographs and drawings.  Extensive bibliography and sources given for all recipes, and you even learn how many servings were expected per creature and what they might cost.

I got mine!  <G>
