Staff Comments:

This booklet is an early publication by Stuart Peachy. It is a brief introduction to a selection of foodstuffs and recipes from three resources; The English Huswife by Gervase Markham [1613], Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry by Thomas Tusser [1580], and Civil War & Saltfish: the food of Soldiers and Civilians in the mid C17th [1988]. Of particular interest is the comparison and examples of recipes suitable at this time period for the poor, middle class, rich and the English and Spanish Sailors. Original transcriptions of each recipe is provided with a modern redaction, with an indication as to the original source.
