A very rare work by Joseph Franz, son of and botanical successor to Nikolaus Joseph Jacquin

A very rare work by Joseph Franz, son of and botanical successor to Nikolaus Joseph Jacquin. The work is also listed as 'Eclogae Graminum Rariorum'. No title was printed as the work was never finished. A 5th part was planned but only 8 proof plates appeared and are only found in a very few copies. The work is devoted to newly discovered species of grasses. One plate with a small brown spot and one plate with small marginal repair. The original printed blue wrappers bound in.
