, . . Bibl. Belg. II, pp. 1058-1059 (E43); BMN I, p. 58; STCN (6 copies). Rare Dordrecht Dutch edition (the only edition with the present title, content and arrangement) of a very popular work on country housekeeping (including medical and culinary matters) first published in Latin in 1554 by Charles Estienne (1504-1564), physician and King's Printer in Paris, who also wrote much of the text. He is known in Latin as Carolus Stephanus, here rendered in Dutch as Karel Stevens. The Latin edition appeared under the title Praedium rusticum, containing a collection of treatises on different aspects of the country household, such as planting trees and creating gardens, including an herb-garden, vineyards etc., keeping cattle, fish and bees, distilling, cheese-making, even creating a park for wild animals. We have found no other edition under the present title, nor any with a similar content. With a small restoration in the upped margin of the engraved title-page, only slightly touching the image, and a small restoration at the lower outer corner of letterpress title-page, some marginal thumbing and small water stains, otherwise in good condition. Binding very good.
