Alternate titles: Hortus floridus. English Hortus floridus. Altera pars horti floridi. Garden of flowers.
Notes:
Dedication signed: Crispian de passe Iunior.
A translation by Thomas Wood or E.W. of: Hortus floridus.
"The booke to his readers" is signed by Thomas Wood; the translator's dedication to book four is signed: E.W.
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.
Several plates in part 1, books 1 and 2 are signed by Simon van de Pass and Willem van de Passe.
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.
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.
