Subject: 	Household Manuals

Dear colleagues,

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.

Many thanks.

Kind regards,
Mikey.
