What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding
'La Maison Rustique' is a French translation of 'Praedieum Rusticum' with alterations and an additions. This was the first book of its kind to appear in French upon its initial publication in 1564.
'Praedium Rusticum' was first issued in 1554 and was a collection of tracts compiled from ancient writers on various branches of agriculture.
With Jean de Clamorgan's treatise 'La Chasse du Loup' to the rear of the work as called for. This work was written to accompany this work and is adorned with woodcuts which show the damage caused to sheep and other domesticated animals by wolves.
A fascinating work written by this noted agronomist.
In a quarter calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, excellent with minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright. A few marks and contemporary inscriptions to the title page. Tidemark to the fore-edge of pages 24-end. Does not affect the woodcuts. Otherwise, just the occasional light spots.
