Could be. They started printing Arnold de Villanova in the early 16th  
so portions of works attributed to him probably appear in a number of  

Markham improved the 1616 edition and tailored to an English audience.
We know he often borrowed too. This advice all gets recycled to some  
extent in
The English Housewife.

I think the citation to there being an English 1658 English edition   
up now on Google Books is wrong.
I think that's just another French edition.
