Cortusi, L'horto de i semplici di Padova, Padua 1591. The main ground-plan with text. The plan gives an overview of the four main squares, each divided into approximately 125 plant beds (Areole) and each square has a different pattern. The scale of the plan is too small to include more detail, therefore the catalogue contains four plans of the individual squares (Spaldo or Quadro).
