Brussels, A. Delavau éditeur, 1852. 2 volumes in-8° in 1 bound volume. Bound in black percaline, with polychrome decoration. Illustrated with 52 color lithographs (29 + 23) including the 2 frontispices and 2 black lithographs (Botanique des dames).
Neither Vicaire nor Brivois mention this Belgian edition, which seems to be modelled on the second Parisian edition whose pagination was not continuous.
