Aeduin, I'm a little confused here.  It was my understanding that you were 
working on a translation of A proper new Boke of Cokery of 1575 from the 
Meyers transcription found on medievalcookery.com.  Now you are using the 
term facsimile, suggesting you have a facsimile copy, which a transcription 
is not.  Facsimile is a very specific term which refers to as an exact a 
material reproduction of the work in question.  A proper facsimile will also 
have the additional information about who created the facsimile and when it 
was created.  To my knowledge, no facsimile of the 1575 edition of A proper 
new Boke of Cokery has ever been made.  Would you please give us an accurate 
bibliographic description of the source you are using to satisfy my 
curiosity?  If there is a facsimile edition out there, I know at least three 
of us who would like a copy.
