First Italian edition of the Geoponica, a collection of agricultural teachings originally compiled by Cassianus Bassus around the 6th or 7th century AD from older Roman, Greek and Arabic texts (mostly now lost), and revised c. 950 AD by order of Constantine VII, to whom the work was formerly ascribed.

Divided into twenty books, the Geoponica deals with various aspects of agriculture, husbandry, and rural life, including the study of the weather and astronomy, viticulture and wine making, olive growing and oil production, horticulture, veterinary science, apiculture, cattle and sheep breeding, fish farming and fishing, how to keep and look after pigeons, birds, horses, donkeys, camels, pigs, hares, deer and dogs, and how to deal with animals and insects injurious to plants.
