'Extremely rare' Stafleu, 'editio princips rarissima' Pritzel. This is the first of Dodoens's herbals, and the beginning of many editions and issues in different languages. The Cruydeboeck, "provided the basis for all of his further writings since his later works merely incorporated additions and changes that he made to the original during the rest of his lifetime" (Anderson, p. 177)
Rembert Dodoens, born at Malines in 1517, studied medicine in Louvain and thereafter in France, Italy and Germany and spent some years in the service of Maximilian II and Rudolph II. His early works were published by Loe, but Dodoens later developed a close association with the house of Plantin, from which most of his later works, with woodcuts specifically cut for them, were issued. In 1582 Dodoens settled in Leiden as a professor of medicine, dying there in 1585
