260    Printed at Vtrecht :|bBy Salomon de Roy, for Crispian de 
       Passe,|c1615 
300    [28; 4] p., plates 
500    Dedication signed: Crispian de passe Iunior 
500    A translation by Thomas Wood or E.W. of: Hortus floridus 
500    "The booke to his readers" is signed by Thomas Wood; the 
       translator's dedication to book four is signed: E.W 
500    In two parts, the first containing four books according to
       the seasons. Part 2, "Altera pars horti floridi" has 
       divisional title and an engraved Biblical text ([2] 
       leaves) followed by 62 leaves of plates with letterpress 
       Latin descriptions on facing pages 
500    Several plates in part 1, books 1 and 2 are signed by 
       Simon van de Pass and Willem van de Passe 
500    First part letterpress signatures: A-G² , all in English. 
       These leaves were evidently intended to be dispersed 
       through part 1, quires A-C having the general 
       preliminaries and the text for book 1 (spring), quire D 
       having the text for book 2 (summer), E1-F1 for book 3 
       (autumn), and F2-G2 for book 4 (winter). Some copies may 
       have additional letterpress leaves with text in other 
       languages 
500    Copies vary in the number of plates in part 1, and plates 
       may have letterpress Latin text on versos. For book 1 
       originally 41 flower plates (some unnumbered) and one 
       "garden" plate were engraved (the latter with legend 
       "Meridies" at top but other directions not labeled); later
       12 plates numbered 43-54 were added. Book 2 originally had
       19 plates; later a plate 20 was added, and another copy of
       the "garden" plate may be present. Book 3 has 26 numbered 
       plates (two numbered 25) plus a "garden" plate with 
       "Meridies" at top and the other three directions also 
       labeled; book 4 has 12 numbered plates and possibly a 
       duplicate of the second "garden" plate
