My copy arrived today and in checking out the sources I came across a nice surprise.

In the bibliography section, under "The Cookbooks" it lists the following transcriptions or editions by people
you may know:

1575	A proper new Booke of Cookery 

D. Myers (transcr.)
1567	The commonplace book of Countess Katherine Seymour Hertford  
(University of Pennsylvania Ms. Codex 823)	D. Myers (transcr.)

1591	A Book of Cookrye 
(STC 24897)	M. Waks, J. Waks (ed.)
1594	The good Huswifes Handmaide for the Kitchin 
S. Wallace (ed.)
ENG	transcription
1594	The good Huswifes Handmaide for the Kitchin 
T. Gloning (transcr.)
ENG	transcription
1596	The Good Housewife's Jewell 
T. Dawson
D. Myers (transcr.)	ENG	transcription
1597	The Second part of the good Hus-wiues Iewell 
T. Dawson (ed.)

and my own contribution of 
1573	The Treasurie of commodious Conceits 
J. Partridge
J. Holloway (transcr.)

The works are hosted by either medievalcookery.com or Thomas Gloning or by the Waks.

Very nice to see us all listed in a book by the British Museum.
