Teofilo Folengo' 'Baldo' - macaronic Latin

I've just got a copy of Folengo's 'Baldo' published in in English and Macaronic Latin by Harvard.

Does there exist any resource that would help with the Latin - glossary or some such? I'm assuming that many of the words were not known in the classical period.
