Is my quasimedieval setting realistic?

I have a setting I've been concocting, and I just wanted person or persons who know something about, ya know, *actual* preindustrial societies to give it an eyeball, and see if anything's... straining their suspension of disbelief unduly, or seems Very Improbable or otherwise problematic.
So, I shall ramble on 'bout my setting under the cut.Collapse )

Exact publication dates of books?

Hey, guys. This may be too generic a question for this community, but I thought it was worth a shot.

Does anyone know of a resource (preferably available online) that provides the exact dates of publication for books? I'm looking for a British book that was published in 1917, and I've managed to narrow it down to the month of May with some searching, but after that I get stuck. I really don't know where else to look; even sites like the British Library's Integrated Catalogue, which is usually very helpful, will only give me years.

Thanks for any help. This is making me CRAZY.

ETA: For the record, the book in question is Siegfried Sassoon's The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.
