Two volumes, oblong large octavo, [xiv],  (first blank) pages with 41 full-page plates, each with an accompanying page of text, plus an extra pictorial title leaf (from van de Pass' engraved garden design) and an errata slip; and [xvi] (last blank),  pages with 62 full-page plates plus a frontispiece. Most of the plates, which reproduce van de Pass' engravings, are accompanied by a facing page of text with calligraphy by Margaret Shipton.
Quarter green morocco and marbled boards, most edges uncut; extremities slightly bumped; all pastedowns, and the leaves adjacent to the covers of the first volume, are lightly foxed; an excellent set with the dustwrappers a little marked and worn, with minor loss.
Numbers 102 and 122 respectively of editions limited to 500 copies; an additional deluxe issue of 30 copies of each volume on Arnold hand-made paper was also produced. The title does not follow the first English translation, so the spelling would appear to be an affectation. The second volume records that the text is 'translated from the Latin by Spencer Savage'. Crispin van de Pass (circa 1597-1670) was a second-generation member of a dynasty of Dutch engravers; 'he worked in Paris, at least from 1617 to 1627, in Utrecht (1630-1639), and from then until his death in Amsterdam' (Wikipedia).
