Torino, Tipografia di Giuseppe Cassone, 1847-1852. 6 volumes. Royal-8vo (230 x 150mm). pp. xxxv, 364; 391; 392; 383; 414; 394, with 600 fine handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary brown half calf, gilt lettering, lines and ornaments on spines.

A very fine and clean copy in an attractive contemporary binding. A scarce work on medicinal plants with atractive handcoloured plates. Felice Cassone (1815-1854) was an Italian botanist. In order to give an idea how rare the work is, W. Junk in his 'Bibliographia Botanica' (1909) no. 6795 offered a copy at Mark 100, in the same catalogue he offers a copy of Ventenat's 'Jardin de la Malmaison' at Mark 150. Since 1909 we have not offered a complete copy. Half-title with deaccession stamp.
