Title continues: "Or, A Plain, Easy, and Demonstrative Method of speedily growing Rich: Proving, by undeniable Arguments, That every Land-Owner, in England, may advance his Estate to a double Value, in the Space of one Year's Time. Together with Several very curious Instructions, how to feed Oxen, Cows, and Sheep, to much greater Profit, than has ever yet been known in England." Published in the same year by George Faulkner and Peter Wilson of Dublin; priority is unclear. "'Tis a very great Misforune to England, that the Cultivation of her Lands is in the meanest of her People; Men, whose Obscurity of Birth, and Narrowness of Education, do not only render them unable to make Improvements, but unwilling to hear of them" (p. 3).
