"Explicatio prospectus Horti Pisani" and plates appear to be the same as in the Catalogus plantarum horti Pisani 1723 edition: this item may be a proof or mock-up before publication of the actual item; the plates in this item do not have "Tab" numbering on the plates as in the Catalogus plantarum horti Pisani 1723 edition but "Tavola", chiefly at top of each leaf (sometimes within border of plate: see plates I-XV, XVII-XX, XXIII, XXV-XXVI, XXXIII XXXV, XXXVI), nor do the original plates have Latin name written as at the top left of some plates; plates cropped at top edge, fore edge, and at bottom edge; all images appear on leaf recto; paper not as thick as in the Catalogus plantarum horti Pisani 1732 item.

Plate numbered XIX (19) = Tab 20 in the Catalogus plantarum horti Pisani 1723 edition.

Manuscript note on leaf following title page; leaf signed and dated 15 giugno 1832.
