<<< This reminds me that Ken Albala has a new book coming out on this  
It's titled:  Pancake: A Global History.

Amazon in the US is saying October. >>>

Thank you, Johnnae. I think.

I've still got a bunch of info on pancakes which I haven't added to  
the pancakes-msg file in the Florilegium, since I've been trying to  
set a dividing line between what is and isn't a pancake, a crepe,  
etc. Maybe this book will have a good way of organizing things.

Then again, I just bought a bunch of these history of particular  
items books. Some of which are still to arrive. I don't *need* to buy  
more for a while...

The one I'm currently reading is on coal. From discussions here I  
thought the use of coal in Europe mainly started in the 16th century  
when, at least in England, the forests were rapidly disappearing. But  
apparently coal was burned on a small scale since the Romans and  
started being used for industrial uses in the 14th century. And coal  
was extremely disliked, especially by the upper class but it was cheap.
