This text was not obscure at the time: Kaspar Scheidt adapted and expanded Dedekind's very popular Latin text in a High German vernacular edition in 1551; in the meantime, Dedekind revised his own book, producing a second (1552) and a third edition (1554), the latter retitled Grobianus et Grobiana and adding advice to women.
