Reviews

Spicksley's edition makes available for the first time one of the most important account books of the seventeenth century, setting it in its economic, social and geographic context * Amy L. Erickson, History * It is an exemplary edition, and relects Judith Spicksley's diligence, analytical skills and empathy. ... This edition of Jeffrey's accounts brings many features of that age into clear relief, providing insights into the minutiae of the business and personal life of an impressive woman, and allowing one almost to touch the very fabric of seventeenth-century local society. * Nigel Goose, LPS * we find thoughtful and well-contextualized short discussions on such issues and money-lending, patterns of consumption, family and household concerns, charity, medical knowledge and practice and hobbies and pastimes. ... Students and their mentors alike will benefit from the broad scope and considerable importance of both text and commentary. * Robert Tittler, Journal of Urban History * This volume presents valuable evidence of provincial everyday life in mid-seventeenth-century England in a way that is accessible, informative and stands as an example for other editors to follow. * Jane Whittle, Journal of Continuity and Change *
