The Boke of Keruynge (Book of Carving) free pdf This is a handbook or manual for well-born boys in Tudor times who had to learn how to behave at court. They were often sent to court or to a great house at an early age to be instructed, as was the experience of Sir Thomas More. The book provides instruction in arranging feasts and grand dinners, rituals of table-laying, the preparation, saucing and carving of meats and fish and servant's duties. This was the equivalent of a 'public school education' and a boy needed to know that clergy were to be served before noble lords or how to lace a doublet after first warming the lord's linen underpants before a fire. In addition to providing an introduction, eminent food historian Peter Brears has produced illustrations that show how the text instructed the readers to joint a rabbit, cut up a flat fish, or lay out a tablecloth.

About Peter Brears

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
