9780956509406 Large 8vo, pp iv, 434, hardbound in grey boards. [A reprinting, not in facsimile, of the plant lists from Lyte's translation of Dodoens Niewe Herbal, Gerard's Herball, Parkinson's Paradisus, Bobart's Catalogus Plantarum Horti Medici Oxoniensis, Hanmer's Garden Book, Rea's Flora seu de Florum Cultura, Gilbert's Florists Vade-Mecum, Sibbald's Scotia Illustrata, John Blackburne's Catalogue of Plants at Orford, the Hortus Uptonensis, John Galpine's Catalogue of Useful Plants, John Brunton's Catalogue of Plants and Dillwyn's Hortus Collinsonianus.
