[16], 231, [1] pp.Fourth (third Antwerp) edition, extensively revised and expanded to reach its definitive form, of the first substantial Dutch manual on the notary's practice, based partly on older Latin and French works, some with the same Latin title.

The present calls itself the third, clearly following on the 1585 edition, which calls itself the second, but Bruyn Harmansz. Schinkel published an edition at Delft in 1589 (copying even the "second edition" statement from the 1585 edition). Shinkel appears to have copied the present edition for his 1596 edition.

The manual remained in use for a century not only in Flanders and Brabant, but also in the Northern Netherlands, going through more than 20 editions. Later manuals by Dirck Heymansz. van der Mast and others also owed it a great deal to Thuys's example.
