Ad 2: The first page contains a mounted plate depicting flowers, within a white lace-like, paper-cut border. While the title of the work suggests descriptions in German, English, French, Spanish and Dutch, only four languages are actually used. Dutch is left out, presumably under the assumption that the Dutch public could read French. In contrast with the title, furthermore, the images are described in Italian instead of Spanish, indicating that this is not the only edition made with these lithographs.
