Abstract
In this first paper of a series of two, the origin of the veterinary literature during the Hellenic and Roman periods (Vegetius, 4th century AD) is briefly described. Further on, a survey of the (French) literature is given that might have been available to the first veterinary students, such as the reference book 'Le Nouveau Parfait Marechal' (first edition, 1741) published by Francois Alexandre de Garsault. These mostly very expensive books contain splendid and scientifically adequate anatomic descriptions and illustrations, but knowledge of physiology and pathogenesis was virtually inexistent. Descriptions of pathological conditions are succinct and often inadequate. Due to the lack of a formal form of veterinary education, traditional handbooks, as we know them nowadays, did not exist before 1750.
