Edition Notes

Publication information from colophon.

At least one other edition of the Hortulus animae was issued by Clein and Koberger in 1513. That edition, which contains a longer title page, altered wording in the colophon, and different foliation, bears the date of February 9th.

Signatures: a-zı́ A-Kı́

Printed in red and black ink.

The device of Johann Clein appears in the colophon.

For more information on the Koberger/Clein editions of the Hortulus animae, consult Ruth Mortimer, French 16th Century books (Cambridge: Belknap Press, 1964.), 413.
