GLOSSARY AND INDEX OF COMMODITIES

References in Roman numerals are to pages in the introduction; all other references are to serial numbers in the text. All the commodities in the text are listed below and the English (unless identical with the modern form), Latin or French spelling of the MS is given in round brackets. A reference is provided to each entry for a commodity, with the exception of a few very common commodities, e.g. woollen cloth, for which the first six references only are given. Descriptions are provided of the less familiar commodities and weights and measures. The following books have been especially useful in supplementing the Oxford English Dictionary:

S. W. Beck, The Draper's Dictionary (1886)

Claude Blair, European Armour circa 1066 to circa 1700 (1953)

E. M. Carus-Wilson (ed.), The Overseas Trade of Bristol in the later Middle Ages (1937)

H. Hall and F. J. Nicholas (eds.), 'The Noumbre of Weyghtes' in Select Tracts and Table Books Relating to English Weights and Measures, 1100–1742 (Camden Society, 3rd series, xli, 1929)

E. M. Veale, The English Fur Trade in the later Middle Ages (Oxford, 1966)

T. S. Willan (ed.), A Tudor Book of Rates (1962)
