Plat, Hugh. The Garden of Eden, or, An accurate description of all flowers and fruits now growing in England, with particular rules how to advance their nature and growth, as well in seeds and herbs, as the secret ordering of trees and plants (London : Printed for William Leake, at the Crown in Fleetstreet betwixt the Two Temple Gates, 1654)

Sotheby’s 1856 lot 138. STC R33966.

Unlocated. NOTE: Copies at Cambridge University Library, the Hunt Institute, and the British Library do not bear any provenance related to the 1856 Wolferstan library sale. ESTC erroneously lists a copy at the Sutro Library in California, but a librarian confirmed in 2017 that no record of the book exists in “the California State Library’s Online Catalog, the California State Library’s pre-1960 card catalog, the Online Archives of California, WorldCat and the National Union Catalog pre-1956.”
