Acknowledgments

The author wishes to thank the Centre for Renaissance and Reformation Studies at the University of Toronto for permission to reproduce various illustrations in this volume, and for their help in obtaining them.

Special credit is due to David Hoornstra for several of the illustrations in this book.

Special credit is also due to Victoria Hadfield for her work on the illustrations in this volume, some of which are her own.

Thanks also to David Kuijt for providing the rules for Primero.

Daily Life in Elizabethan England is in part a revision of The Elizabethan Handbook, a manual for Elizabethan living history produced by the University Medieval and Renaissance Association (now the Tabard Inn Society) at the University of Toronto for its "Fencing, Dancing, and Bearbaiting" event in June 1991, and subsequently revised and expanded for private publication by the present author. Although relatively little of the original text survives, some credit is due to the people who originally produced it, or who had a hand in later revisions, including Susan Carroll- Clark, Maren Drees, Victoria Hadfield, Lesley Howard, Shona Humphrey, A. J. S. Nusbacher, Tricia Postle, and Tara Jenkins.

Illustrations from Herbert Norris, Costume and Fashion, appear by permission of Viking Books.
