About the book:

Cato's On Farming is the oldest surviving example of Latin prose, dating to the 2nd century BC. It is a book of instruction about the cultivation of vines, olives and fruit, the management of slaves and contract labour, cookery and medicine. This is the first translation for over sixty years; the Latin is printed as a parallel text. The book contains an introduction and several illustrations placing Cato and his writing in context.
