AbstractHall explores "Scriptores Rei Rusticae," which signifies a grouping of Cato, Varro, and Columella in their works on agriculture; and to these should be added, for this article, the thirteenth century author Pietro de' Crescenzi. The Library of Rutgers University is fortunate in possessing some early editions of these writers, several of them excellent examples of German, Italian, and Polish book illustrators' art of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
