Like Damhouder's works on civil and criminal law, Pupillorum Patrocinium has plates that illustrate points in the text. One depicts three young orphans with their guardian, tutor, godfather, conservator and executor before a magistrate, facing preface. Other plates depict situations in later stages of life, such as a guardian introducing a child to a teacher, the guardian and child at a shoemaker's shop and the guardian making a record of his charge's assets with an accountant. This edition incorporates two other works. De Magnificentia Policiae Amplissimae Civitatis Brugarum, first published in 1544, is a political and sociological study of Bruges. It is illustrated with a folding plan of the city. Subhastationum Compendiosa Exegesis, first published in 1546, is a brief treatise on public sales. It has an illustration of an auction scene. This is believed to be the first depiction of an auction to appear in a book.
