Royal Library : Here begynneth the boke of keruynge

Royal Library

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The Book of husbandry and the Boke of kervynge were two practical guides for everyday life–one on how to farm, and the other on how to serve at table– and are unique surviving copies printed by William Caxton’s collaborator and successor Wynkyn de Worde. Young noblemen frequently spent time in service in court, to learn the comportment of polite society, and the Boke of kervynge was a textbook on this subject. Moore’s copy bears the annotation of one Edward Powell, perhaps the same (young?) reader who also doodled a <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(34);return false;'>pair of cats</a> on the final leaf.</p>
