Moens has added short ethical sketches and physical knowledge, from which her familiarity with Martinet's 'Katechismus der natuur' is evident. The work was illustrated by Izaak de Wit (1744-1809) with twelve engravings after fine drawings that Jacob Cats (1741-1799) had made as requested by Haarlem art collector J. Helmolt. It is with pride that Adriaan Loosjes speaks of this work in the foreword. Many of the works written by the remarkably productive Petronella Moens was published with this Haarlem bookseller and publisher, who was an author as fruitful as she was. L2600
