Complete collection of these 5 works on agriculture and rustic life, whose authors are known as Scriptores rei rusticae, here in 16th century Lyon editions.
The copy belonged to a physician of the time named Roussetus, with handwritten ex-libris; the first work has numerous marginal annotations in pen, probably in his hand.
Perhaps it is François Rousset (1531-1587), a physician who remained famous for having published in 1581 the first treatise on caesarian section (Traité de l'Hysterotomotokie).
Bookplate torn from the back cover. The second work is incomplete by 2 leaves.
