The first part is by Jan van der Groen (1624-1671) and was first published in 1669; all other parts, including the section on beekeeping (with a very nice explanatory illustration) and cooking, were written by Petrus [Peter, Pieter] Nylandt [Nylant, Nijland, Nijlandt] (ca. 1635-ca. 1675) and first published in the same year. Nylandt was also the author of a Dutch herbal. All editions are rare. On the front free endpaper an amateurish half-title in an old hand. The first page 57 erroneously numbered 75. Boards somewhat soiled; some vague, marginal dampstaining to a few leaves; lacking the front free endpaper; old owner's signatures on the front pastedown, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Cat. BM(NH), p. 739 [under Groen], and p. 1458 [under Nylandt]. A seldom-seen complete edition of this finely illustrated encyclopaedia
