54 In any case, each print in this new edition is inscribed with a number in the lower border. 55 This designation of the Small Landscapes as “books of village houses” or “books of farms” is significant, for it indicates that while they also included occasional views of castles and sumptuous country houses, as we have seen, the simple rustic scenes seem to have appealed more to the printbuying public. Despite the success that Cock enjoyed with his Small Landscapes, it is difficult to assess their impact on the development of Flemish landscape painting during the remainder of the sixteenth century.
