Gunther asked about roasting beef... You might want to look at the recipe on Ivan Day's web site:
http://www.historicfood.com/Roast%20Fillet%20of%20Beef%20Recipe.htm .  He has a picture of the beef on a spit.  He quotes La Varenne's method which would seem to preclude much in the way of drippings since the beef is wrapped in paper but he also gives May's method for basting it.
