Well, I'm not either, but I do have a wonderful library full of the  
manuscripts of those that are...

<<< What makes a good book on pre-modern
Gastronomy? This encompasses: food, recipes, food preparation, food
presentation, dining habits, festival calendars, nutrition, ceremony,

books-food-msg   (172K)  2/21/08    Books about food. Not cookbooks.
