  • 1. A Way to Get Wealth: / containing / the sixe / principall vocati / ons or callings, in which / everie good Husband of Housse-wife may / Lawfully imploy themselves.
    W. Okes   J. Harrison   1631

    This book contained "The English Huswife" (1615) which has its own entries earlier. There is some duplication of material but this combined volume of books was clearly an exceptionally popular and long-running seventeeth-century guide to middle class living, and some entries are double-entered. Markham was a 'book-packager', re- marketing his many books and translations in a multitude of different ways. This work was expanded to its usual six parts in the 1631 edition to contain:
    Part I: Cattle, fowl, horses (Dedication: Richard Sackville)
    Part II: Recreations of Gentleman {Country Contentemnts] (Dedication: Theodore Newton)
    Part III: Housewife (Dedication: Lady Frances countess dowager of Exeter)
    Part IV: Inrichment of Wealth (Dedication: Sir George Rivers of Chafford)
    Part V: Barren Ground: (Farewell to Husbandry, Dedication: Bonham Newton)
    Part VI: Orchards, Gardening, Bees (by William Lawson)
    First books by Gervase Markham : for the benefit of Great Britaine.
