A companion to Damhouder's famous Praxis Rerum Criminalium (1554), Praxis Rerum Civilium is a manual of civil law and court procedure. Like its predecessor, it is a synthetic work drawn mostly from Roman-Dutch sources and based largely on Philip Wielant's Practyke Civile (c.1508) and other earlier treatises. The text is illustrated throughout with woodcuts depicting court scenes and legal proceedings. Eight of these were created for this work, while the others were reused from previous publications. First published separately in 1568 and reissued with the 1569 edition of Pra.
