Don't know if this site is already common knowledge to everyone here, but found it accidentally whilst looking for longbow blueprints.
Wow. I mean, WOW. It has numerous books I've been meaning to buy or hunt down for some time, all there for the reading, in their complete forms.
Excuse me as I return now to this site, and The Art of Archerie (1634), for I want to further know "..what wood is best, the choice, the trimming, to keep it in goodness; and how to cure all mischiefs"
Keep ye all in goodness,
