Note 1 Collection of prayers.
Note 2 Listed in M 296, folio 8v (Hortulus leodiensis, 16º, aº 1557, f[euilles] 15½, [price:] stuivers 3).
Note 3 The sale of Hortulus animae is noted in Plantin's ledger (Arch. 38) from 27 February 1557 onwards. As Plantin in that same year published also a Hortulus animae ad usum Romanum (see following no.), it is not always possible to distinguish between the two publications. Anyway 6 'Hortulus animae liege', worth 18 stuivers, are explicitly noted on 9 April 1557 (to Martin Nutius; folio 5bis). References to other sales in 1557, 1558, and 1559, in Arch. 38: folios 2, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 29, 55.
