Product Description

About the Author

Wynken de Worde was Caxton's successor having been his apprentice. He was the first person to set up a printing shop in Fleet Street and thus became the founder of a centuries long tradition. He was born in Alsace. He is believed to have published more than 700 books including the first to use italic typeface in 1524. His original name was Jan van Wynken. He is no doubt not the actual author of The Boke of Keruynge but rather the publisher of an anonymous work

The Book of Carving 10 Jan. 2008
By Sadyll Chic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Handy little book for the late Medieval re-eanctor or medieval enthusiast who wants to know how "servants of the body" attended their lord and how to set a high table with linens and place settings, to how to serve and carve various items.

Pen and ink drawings throughout, and a reproduction of Wynken de Worde's text as well with a clearer transcription are contained within.

Love the book it lays out how to set a medieval high table, how to serve and even though it does not translate the entire manuscript it gives you alot of information with nice illustrations.
It is an excellent look into English upper class dining customs 14 Feb. 2015
By A. K. Dunavant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is an excellent look into English upper class dining customs. They were much more sophisticated than Hollywood films would have us believe. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in 15th and 16th century English people.
