I'd suggest both _The English House-wife_ by Gervase Markham, and _The

"in verbis et in herbis, et in lapidibus sunt virtutes"
(In words, and in plants, and in stones, there is power.)
"The Sons of Mary seldom bother, for they have inherited that good part;
But the Sons of Martha favour their Mother
of the careful soul and the troubled heart.
And because she lost her temper once,
and because she was rude to the Lord her Guest,
Her Sons must wait upon Mary's Sons, world without end, reprieve, or rest."
-- Rudyard Kipling, "The Sons of Martha"
