This is translation by the well-known pioneering economic/social historian Eileen Power of a book written by a 14th century Parisian bourgeois who had married a young wife and wrote this to guide her in becoming a good wife by the standards of the time. The first section is a strongly conventional explanation of how she should be obedient, virtuous and devout, with examples of the fate of those who were not. The second part is pratical advice on housekeeping, including gardening, selecting food and preparing it, which includes a number of recipes. ( )
