One of my favourite blogs is BibliOdyssey, which I’ve mentioned a few times before. It’s a visual historical blog, and it invariably takes my breath away. The entry on “Noble Country Living” is especially rich. 

It shows illustrations from Georgica Curiosa, a 3-volume work published in 1682 by Wolf Helmhardt von Hohberg, covering all aspects of daily rural life.

What a feast for a historian! Here are only a few of the illustrations:

For more illustrations and information, be sure to go to the BibliOdyssey website. Wonderfully, the book is online (click “overview” to get to the pages).
