I concur. If that is the date range you are looking for then "A Sip Through Time" is the book you want. Tons for recipes, nice index and references in the back. I have done several recipes from the book and have used others as a starting point for formulating my own. One thing I learned was that they were crazy for the nutmeg and cloves  back then. I usually tone it down some as they are not so much to my liking.

Just my $0.034 (inflation)

May mead regain its rightful place as the beverage of gods and kings.

  Still looking for my gruntle, lost 13June01. Current reward offered $.04.
  "I have of late--but wherefore I know not--lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory, this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours." W. Shakespeare, _Hamlet_

    Any info on unique ingredients, brew-process, materials, equipment, etc.,
