Prices in England: 1259-1582

A History of Agriculture and Prices in England from the year after the Oxford Parliament (1259) to the commencement of the Continental War (1793)

More than just wheat and cattle! Textiles, locks and keys, carts, and sundry articles and services, from hammer and pincers to clocks to 11 quires of Bacon's Mathematics to gelding four pigs (price, one farthing).

The amazing thing is that people managed to compile things like this without computers.... I imagine this one was the work of decades.
