From the Back Cover
In 1615 Englishman Gervase Markham published a handbook for housewives that contains "all the virtuous knowledges and actions both of the mind and body, which ought to be in any complete housewife". Markham instructs and advises on everything from the plague to baldness and bad breath. Woodcut illustrations add a richness to this look at life during the Renaissance.

There is a LOT of information in here, including medicine, food, cosmetics, textiles, dyeing, and malting (among others - this is just what I remember off the top of my head).
