|- 10.000 years 19th century|
The illustration of the cover page of the magazine La maison rustique shows in the foreground, farming and cattle breeding, which can be considered as appropriate for a publication dealing with agricultural topics. In the background, one can see a village with wind mills. Industrial and agro-industrial revolutions are not yet perceptible.
One year later, the same magazine changed completely its cover.
In the foreground, one can see a heterogeneous set up of threshing machines,
scythes, retorts, hives and books. In the middle of the cover, a well organized
farming field is represented. In the background, a railroad and a balloon
crown the landscape.
Science and industry indicate the change from agricultural times up to agro-industrial times.
