"Nearly forty years ago, Dr. Furnivall collected for the Early English text society 'divers treatises touching the manners and meals of Englishmen in former days.' Some of these were published in 1868, under the title The babees' book (since listed as Early English meals and manners) and others ... in 1869, under the title Queene Elizabethes achademy." The substance of Dr. Furnivall's collections in antiquated English are now presented in modern form. "About half of the translations have been made by Miss L.J. Naylor."--Introd. (p. xi-xii, xxxv).
