Online bibliographical references

Note 1

Dutch translation of a revised French edition of Estienne's Maison rustique.

Note 2

Jean Liébault, son-in-law of Charles Estienne, made some additions to the work of his father-in-law: a first edition was published at Paris, chez Jacques du Puys, 1570. Reprints, by the same publisher, followed in 1578, 1583, and 1586 (cf. Brunet, II, Column 1074). Plantin must have followed the 1570 or 1578-edition.

Note 3

Very likely the unknown translator commissioned by Plantin did not make a complete new version, but simply translated and arranged the additional parts (cf. BB, II, page 1055).

Note 4

In the dedicatory to Jan van Stralen, brother of Antoon van Stralen, to whom the 1566-edition was dedicated, Plantin recalls the printing of his French edition (1565) and of the Dutch translation (1566), and continues to explain that many of his Dutch speaking friends had urged him time and again to bring a new updated version, and that they had insisted more than ever when Plantin issued (in 1581) the richly illustrated Kruydtboeck of M. Lobelius (see no. cp012351), wishing to have the Landtwinninghe as a kind of companion to the Kruydtboeck.

Note 5

Listed in M 296, folio 11r ([Landtwinninghe van Carel Stevens duysh] Anno 1582, 4⁰, met Jan Tib. etca., f[euilles] 91, [price:] stuivers 22), and M 321.
