Subject: Household Manuals
I am a little unsure whether I am in the correct place for this query.
My question concerns the print culture of early modern household
manuals. I have followed up Tessa Watt and Margaret Spufford, as well
as the Cambridge History of the book, I have also worked through Myers
and Bennet's work on the print culture of the period; however, I seem to
have now reached the end of the reference road and was wondering if
anybody had any pointers.
I would also like to request if anybody knows why getting a modern copy
is so difficult, I have searched for Juan Luis Vives, Dod and Cleaver,
Henry Smith and William Gouge to name but a few using amazon.com.uk and
ca and also abebooks.
