Devra mentioned several books she had just gotten in:
<<< Apicius translated by Chris Grocock (Prospect)
Cooking Apicius by Sally Grainger >>>

These have been described elsewhere.

<<< Before the Mast: life & death on the Mary Rose - Gardiner
Stepping Through Time >>>

This one sounds like it could be very interesting from the  
description on Amazon.com. Has anyone read this or have an opinion on  
it? How well does it cover daily life at sea in that time period?  
Unfortunately, the price on Amazon is $100. It is a thick book at 760  
pages but that would make it one of the most expensive books I've  
ever bought. I imagine Devra's price will be the same or higher.
