|Description:||Little is known of the north England horticulturalist William Lawson but the popularity of his works The Country Hous-Wifes Garden (1617) - the first such book written for novice women gardeners - and A New Orchard and Garden, first published in 1618 and reprinted eight times over the next 70 years, has made his name well-known among garden historians.
The Country Hous-Wifes Garden lists in detail the herbs, flowers and vegetables that should be planted and how they should be grown, and gives several designs for knots. A New Orchard and Garden is of particular interest for its representation of the design of country 'orchards' or pleasure gardens in the Tudor period, and for Lawson's infectious enthusiasm for his subject, which has caused him to be dubbed the "Izaak Walton" of gardening writers.|
