Icones Insectorvm circa Ratisbonam indigenorvm coloribvs natvram referentibvs expressae.

Natürlich ausgemahlte Abbildungen Regensburgischer Insecten. Regensburg, H.G. Zunkel/ Weiss, (1766-1779). 3 volumes. 4to (270 x 218mm). With an engraved portrait of the author, 280 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates and 2 engraved vignettes. Contemporary calf, spines in 7 compartments with gilt ornaments and red gilt lettered label (one label with slight damage)

First edition. One of the most beautiful entomological works published during the Golden Period of South German natural history book production. Schaeffer was a clergyman-naturalist, a phenomenon so characteristic of the Enlightenment. He published a number of illustrated natural history works, mostly on insects, but also on birds and fungi of South Germany. The present work describes the insects of South Germany, especially the region around Regensburg. Schaeffer's exact descriptions and fidelity of illustration made this three volume work a mine of information for zoologists and brought it to the attention of scientists and royalty throughout Europe. The delicately handcoloured plates depict over 2000 insects. The plates are printed on both sides of the leaves. Text both in Latin and German. A fine copy of this superbly produced work. Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Wilfred Lanson and a small circular one of Evert Willem Beth, Rotterdam-Hamburg. Nissen ZBI, 3629.

Deutsche Ornithologie oder Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Deutschlands in naturgetreuen Abbildungen und Beschreibungen. Herausgegeben von Dr. Bekker, Lichthammer, C.W. Bekker und Lembcke. Neue Ausgabe. I.-XXII Heft mit 132 Abbildungen.

Darmstadt, im Verlage von Carl Wilhelm Leske, (1837-1841). Folio (510 x 340mm). 22 parts bound in one. With 132 colour-printed and hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, richly gilt decorated spine with gilt lettering and yellow boards (rebacked preserving old spine).

A fine uncut copy of the second edition. The first edition published from 1811-1817 is rarely foundcomplete due to the interruption of publication by the Napoleonic wars. One of the most attractive German ornithological works. "... a work by which it was attempted to create a German parallel to the sumptuous ornithological works of other countries, notably of France, e.g. Levaillant's works, to which it was compared at that time ... and with which it is quite comparable on account of its beautiful plates. These were drawn, engraved, printed, and coloured, by Susemihl in co-operation with his brother, J.Th. Susemihl, and later on his son, Eduard Susemihl" (Anker 52). "Die von ihm gestochenen, gedruckten und illuminierten 132 Tafeln sind so vortrefflich gelungen, dass sie… Glanzstücke der Vogeldarstellungen wurden" (Gebhardt p. 353). "Doch war Susemihl selbst ein eifriger Jäger, der seine Objekte nicht nur ausgestopft kannte. Davon legen die Tafeln, die im Stich wie Kolorit zu den Spitzenleistungen des späten Kupferstiches gehören, beredtes Zeugnis ab, ebenso wie die Vorlagen in Gouachemalerei, welche in der Darmstädter Galerie aufbewahrt werden" (Nissen p. 53). The work is frequently listed under Borkhausen, who was one of the editors of the first edition. Schlenker 55,2; Nissen IVB, 907; Fine Bird Books 61.

Nürnbergische Hesperides, Oder gründliche Beschreibung der edlen Citronat-, Citronen- und Pomerantzen-Früchte, wie solche in selbiger und benachbarten Gegend, recht mögen eingesetzt, gewartet, erhalten und fortgebracht werden. (Together with:) Continuation der Nürnbergischen Hesperidum.

Nürnberg, Endter Erben, 1708-1714. 2 volumes. Folio (357 x 230mm). With 2 engraved frontispieces, 25 engraved vignettes and 248 engraved plates of which 27 folded or double-page. Contemporary calf, later rebacked richly gilt decorated spines in 7 compartments.

A rare copy of the first German edition together with the almost always lacking 'Continuation' published in 1714. A mint copy of the most beautiful baroque book on citrus fruit ever published. The large and impressive portrayals of citrus fruit covers about half the upper part of most of the plates, seemingly floating over the large gardens, country estates of the nobility and wealthy patricians of southern Germany (some of northern Italy are included as well). Johann Christoph Volckamer (1644-1720) was a wealthy Nuremberg merchant, son of Johann Georg Volckamer I (1616-1693) a keen botanist who established a large greenhouse in his garden at Gostenhof. Johann Christoph Volckamer inherited the garden and started to cultivate citrus fruit, a hobby amongst the wealthy classes, in which he had become interested during a visit in Italy. "He visited many gardens in the neighbourhood and further afield as far as Venice and Bologna, beginning to study the endless varieties of citrus fruit he saw. Even after his return to Germany his friends among Italian gardeners and nurserymen supplied him with citrus trees and kept him informed of new developments" (S.Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona, p. 192). According to the preface most of the excellent plates are after drawings by the author and his brother Johann Christoph Volckamer II, some are by Paul Decker the elder, who made the frontispiece, and some by J.C. Steinberger. The plates are reminiscent to Matthäus Merian's 'Der Fruchtbringenden Geselschaft Nahmen' published some 50 years earlier, where plants and patrician estates and gardens were likewise combined on a single plate. There is also a close connection to Matthäus' famous daughter, Maria Sibylla Merian, who, 'through her contact with Clara Regina Imhoff (was) able to gain access to the garden of the physician and naturalist J.G. Volckamer, with whom she continued to correspond even after leaving Nürnberg. She made important finds in the gardens inside and beyond the gates of Nürnberg' (Maria Sibylla Merian. Artist and Naturalist 1647-1717, p. 20). One of the rare copies with the full amount of plates. No copy with full amount of plates has been on the market since 1992. Sotheby's 19 November of that year offered a mediocre copy with the same number of plates. The Massachusetts Horticultural Society copy (Christie's 18 Dec. 2002) as well as the Macclesfield copy (Sotheby's 16 March 2004) both had less plates. Our copy has in the first volume 2 text leaves (pp. 227/228 and 229/230) not bound in. The collation is as follows: (I) Leaves 4, 255, (1 blank), leaves 4, with 116 engraved plates, including the engraved frontispiece; (II) Leaves 15, 6, 239, 4, with 134 engraved plates, including the engraved frontispiece. Provenance: Library of Schloss Pfannberg, coat of arms label with crown and shelf number on inside frontcover of both volumes. Heidrun Ludwig, Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18.

Historia Naturalis Ranarum nostratium.... Die natürliche Historie der Frösche hiesigen Landes worinnen alle Eigenschaften derselben sonderlich aber ihre Fortpflanzung umständlich beschrieben werden. Mit einer Vorrede Herrn Albrechts von Haller.

Nürnberg, Johann Joseph Fleischmann, 1758. Folio (425 x 300mm). pp. (8), viii, 115, (1), text in parallel columns in Latin and German, with fine handcoloured engraved frontispiece and 24 hand-coloured engraved plates, each with a plain anatomical key engraved plate, 6 engraved headpieces. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine with red gilt lettered label, sides with gilt border and corner pieces.

A beautifully bound copy of the first edition of the most beautiful work published on amphibians. 'For instance, Roesel von Rosenhof's illustrations of the frogs and other amphibians have never been surpassed in their beauty, accuracy and vitality. The frontispiece to his 'Historia Naturalis Ranarum' , showing frogs in a pond surrounded by wild roses, is beyond praise' (Dance, Art of Natural History p. 74). "The present volume is one of the classics on amphibiology. The illustrations are the finest and the whole work is admirably done. The title and text appear both in Latin and German and there is a preface by A. von Haller - altogether a very valuable, early contribution to the literature of the batrachia' (C.A. Wood). "These plates must be among the most beautiful illustrations in all of herpetology. The complete life cycle of all species of German frogs and toads is presented in great detail - including amplexing adults and developmental stages of tadpoles - together with their anatomy and osteology"(Adler, K. Contributions to the history of herpetology p. 10). The excellent plates are by the author, the frogs and toads are from southern Germany and illustrate internal anatomy, skeletons, embryological development, copulation etc. The anatomical key plates closely follow the coloured versions, omitting or adding anatomical details. Roesel von Roesenhof (1705-1759) was a German artist-naturalist, miniature painter and engraver in Nürnberg, publisher of one of the most beautifully illustrated German entomological works 'Der monatlich-herausgegebenen Insecten-Belustigung ...'. A very fine copy. Nissen ZBI, 3464; Wood 541.

Handbuch der Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Deutschlands worin nach den sorgfältigsten Untersuchungen und den genauesten Beobachtungen mehr als 900 einheimische Vögel-Gattungen zur Begründung einer ganz neuen Ansicht und Behandlung ihrer Naturgeschichte vollständig beschrieben sind.

Ilmenau, Voigt, 1831. 8vo (205 x 125mm). pp. xxiv, 1085, (3), with 47 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettered red label (hinges skilfully repaired).

The rare first edition of "a classic treatise on mid-European avifauna" (Wood 255). "In Folge eingehendster Specialkenntniss (erfuhr) die Grundlage des Systems, der Begriff der Art, eine Erweiterung insofern B. die Art schon als eine höhere systematische Gruppe fasste und die übereinstimmenden Individuen als Subspecies vereinigte." (Carus 710). "In this handbook, Brehm's chief work, the author gives his opinion on the system of Linnaeus, which is rejected as being too unnatural. The birds are divided into 23 orders which are again subdivided into genera, 'species', and 'subspecies' (Gattungen), by which the author understands birds resembling each other and mating with each other; whereas birds belonging to the same 'species' certainly bear a great resemblance to each other in most respects, but do not regularly mate with each other. Thus he went a step further than any other contemporary ornithologist in the division of birds into species" (Anker 66). The fine plates are after drawings by Bädeker and Th. Götz and engraved by W. Müller. Nissen IVB, 140; Anker 105; Zimmer I, 90.

NAUMANN, J.F. - Johann Andreas Naumann's... Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands, nach eigenen Erfahrungen entworfen... herausgegeben von dessen Sohne Johann Friedrich Naumann. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=9524&s_currency= NAUMANN, J.F.

Johann Andreas Naumann's... Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands, nach eigenen Erfahrungen entworfen... herausgegeben von dessen Sohne Johann Friedrich Naumann.

Leipzig, E. Fleischer, 1820-1844 (volumes 1-12); Stuttgart, Hoffmann, (1860), (volume 13). 13 volumes. Royal-8vo (228 x 141mm). With 3 engraved portraits (J.A. Naumann, C.L. Nitzsch and J.F. Naumann), 9 (5 hand-coloured) engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved plate and 391 fine hand-coloured engraved plates by the author. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines with red gilt lettered label.

The first comprehensive account of the avi-fauna of Germany. This edition is quite distinctive fromJohann Andreas Naumann's work "Naturgeschichte der Land- und Wasser- Vögel des nördlichen Deutschlands und angränzender Länder', of 1795-1817, although this earlier book laid the foundation for the later one. To honour his father, Johann Friederich Naumann put the name of Johann Andreas Naumann at the beginning of the title. Johann Friedrich Naumann (1780 – 1857) was a German ornithologist and engraver/ artist and is regarded as the founder of scientific ornithology in Germany. "In fact the son had begun on a much wider scale and had incorporated only fragments of the original. Brehm, who was hard to please, called it 'splendid' in his long review of the second and third volumes of his 'Ornis' in 1824: 'The younger Mr. Naumann is, like his father, a born naturalist, for he possesses the eagerness that fears no obstacles and does not cool during difficult and protracted investigations, the gift of observation that catches what thousands have overlooked... and finally the skill that understands how to classify and expound what has been discovered'". 'Noch heute ist sie, hist. betrachtet, ein Gegenstand weltweiter Bewunderung. Mit dem Titel des Werkes verbindet sich zugleich ein rührendes Zeugnis von Verehrung für den väterlichen Lehrmeister; des Sohn nannte es 'Johann Andreas N.s Naturgesch...' und zeigte sich damit von Anfang an bereit, zugunsten des Vaters bescheiden hinter seinem Werk zurückzutreten (Gebhardt p. 256). "Johann Friedrich Naumann gilt als der erste bedeutende Ornithologe Deutschlands. Geboren 1780 in Ziebigk bei Köthen, Sachsen-Anhalt, gestorben 1857 ebendort, legte er im Laufe seines Lebens eine Sammlung von mehr als 700 einheimischen Vögeln in ca. 350 Arten an, die er in speziell hergestellten Glasvitrinen ausstellte. Die Sammlung Naumanns wurde 1821 von Herzog Ferdinand Friedrich von Anhalt Köthen für 2000 Reichstaler in Gold gekauft und in den Ausstellungsräumen im "Neuen Schloss" von Naumann um viele weitere exotische Vogelarten erweitert. Neben seinen wissenschaftlichen Leistungen beeindrucken heute noch immer die natürliche Schönheit seiner Vogelbilder und die erstaunliche Kreativität seiner Sprache. Fünfundzwanzig Jahre hat Naumann an seiner zwölfbändigen "Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands" gearbeitet. Das Werk, dessen letzter Band 1844 publiziert wurde, war auf dem Stand der damaligen Wissenschaft, alle 380 Illustrationen hat Naumann selbst gezeichnet und in Kupfer gestochen" (Arnulf Conradi). As the work was published over a very long period complete copies are of utmost rarity. The plates drawn and engraved by the author are beautifully handcoloured. The last 13th volume 'Nachträge, Zusätze und Verbesserungen' which was published many years later has a contemporary half calf binding with a black gilt lettered label.

Beytrag zur teutschen holzgerechten Forstwissenschaft, die Anpflanzung Nordamericanischer Holzarten, mit Anwendung auf teutsche Forste, betreffend.

A fine copy of the first edition of this important work introducing North American trees into Germany. Friederich Adam Julius von Wangenheim (1749-1800) was a German botanist specializing in forestry. He came to the United States in 1777 in the Hessian contigent in the British service and attained the rank of captain. During his stay he devoted all his leisure time to botanical studies of American trees. The third part 'zeigt diejenigen, zwischen den 39ten bis 42ten Grad nördlicher Breite wachsenden Nordamericanischen Bäume und Blumenbüsche an, die in Teutschland in freyer Luft von Gartenliebhabern zur wahren Zierde ihrer Gärten angepflanzt werden können, und dieses ihrer Schonheit, Nutzens, oder Wohlgeruchs halber auch verdienen'. This chapter lists 98 species. The present work predates Michaux's first illustrated work on oakes by 14 years. On his return from America Wangenheim became Prussian 'Oberforstmeister'. The excellent engravings are after drawings by the author. Stafleu & Cowan 16633; Arnold Arboretum 730; Nissen BBI, 2105.

Fungorum qui in Bavaria et Palatinatu circa Ratisbonam nascuntur Icones nativis coloribus expressae. Edition Secunda.

Ratisbonae, impensis auctoris, 1772. 4 volumes bound in 2. Large-4to (270 x 225mm). With 2 engravedfrontispieces and 330 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary green morocco, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments, sides with gilt borders, gilt edges.

A beautifully bound copy of the finest work published in Germany on fungi. The text is in German aswell as in Latin and describes the fungi of Bavaria and the Palatinate. The second edition is a reissue of the first edition which was published in 1762-1771. Four editions were published and all editions must have been very small. The text is both in Latin and German. Schaeffer was a Bavarian clergyman-naturalist, a phenomenon so characteristic of the age of Enlightenment. His interest was broad and apart from publishing the most beautiful early iconography on fungi he published on birds, entomology and paper-making, however most of his works describe the fauna and flora of South Germany. The plates of the present work are superbly handcoloured and were drawn by Sophie Beez, I.St. Loibel, Johann Rothermund, and Schauer, and engraved by various engravers. "In diesem Werk werden auf 330 colorierten Kupferstichen Makromyceten dargestellt, wobei auch auf die Farbe des Sporenstaubes und auf die Sporen Wert gelegt wurde. Die oft bemerkenswert exakten Beschreibungen sind in deutscher und lateinischer Sprache verfasst, erst in 4. Band werden alle dargestellten Pilze mit einem binärem Namen versehen. Das Tafelwerk Schaeffers gehört zu den grossen, z.T. naturalistischen Tafelwerke des ausgehenden 18. Jahrhunderts, die wesentlich zur Erfassung der Vielfalt beigetragen haben und die neue systematische Ansätze herausforderten" (Dörfelt & Heklau p. 415). 2 title-pages, 2 plates and 3 text-leaves with small library stamp in the margin.

An attractive set of all that was published by Panzer, of the most beautiful miniature entomological work ever published. Panzer published parts 1-109 and the final part of this set was published by Geyer. The splendid illustrations are of an unsurpassed beauty and exactness. Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer (1755-1829) was a German entomologist; regional physician in Hersbruck near Nuremberg and lecturer at the Collegium Medicum in Nuremberg. "There does not exist a more accurate or useful work. The figures are drawn and etched by the famous Sturm, the best entomological artist on the continent; ... while the descriptions, although frequently too short, are written by hand of a master. The system of Fabricius is followed and the work altogether is highly essential to every one who writes upon the entomology of Europe" (Swainson). A continuation to Panzer's work was published by Herrich-Schaeffer and is very scarce due to a decreasing number of subscribers. "Die alte bayrische Schule der naturwissenschaftliche Illustrationen hat sich unsterbliche Verdienste besonders um die Entomologie erworben. Sie hat die schönsten Abbildungswerke dieser Wissenschaft geliefert" (Junk. Rara II, p. 142). Jacob Sturm (1771-1848) was born in Nürnberg. His father Johann Georg Sturm was an engraver. Jacob Sturm was the editor and illustrator of several natural history works such as his 'Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen'. Apart from this he illustrated a great number of the finest natural history works published at that period in South Germany. Added to the series are: The original backcovers bound in brown half morocco of all the 110 parts with the printed names of the insects contained in each part.

Nürnberg, bey den Röselischen Erben/ J.J. Fleischmann/ zu finden bey dem Verfasser, (1755-1761). 4 volumes. 4to (197 x 165mm). With 1 engraved portrait of Roesel, 3 handcoloured engraved frontispieces and 357 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates (printed on 285 leaves). Contemporary half calf, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lines and 2 gilt lettered labels (and:) KLEEMANN, C.F.C. Beyträge zur Natur- und Insecten-Geschichte. (Nürnberg 1761-1776). 4to (197 x 165mm). With 44 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine in 6 compartments with gilt lines and 2 gilt lettered labels.

A rare complete set of the most important and finest entomological German publication of the 18th century. Our copy comprises the rare supplement by Kleemann. The work was published by Roesel and his son-in-law Kleemann, both lived in Bavaria, in Nürnberg, working as artists, and both were ardent students of local natural history. "Roesel, who studied at first with his father and then with his uncle Wilhelm, an animal painter in Merseburg, later became a pupil of the famous Preisler in Nuremberg. After living in Copenhagen from 1726 to 1728 he returned to Nuremberg for good, and there, besides painting portraits and drawings, he applied himself in particular to the study of nature. He collected insects, their eggs and larvae, studied the process of hatching, pupation, and emergence, and painted all this in a most meticulous way, as Kleemann tells us. His manuscripts, with 406 illustrations, are now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Roesel also made the engravings of his drawings and, until his death in 1757, his 'loving and diligent spouse' contributed fine colouring to the prints" (Nissen. Bestiaries). The handcoloured engraved frontispieces are of a great beauty and the plates, especially of his favourite group, butterflies and moths, usually show a complete life history, with eggs, larva, pupa and perfect insect. There was no title page published for the first issue of the supplement by Kleemann. However a second issue of the supplement was published in 1792 which does have a printed title as well as 4 more plates. As is mostly the case the set is composed of first and second issues. The first 2 volumes are in the second issue, the remaining volumes in the first. The text was printed on thin paper and as in all copies, is prone to foxing. Our copy likewise has some occasional slight foxing to the text. The plates being printed on fine thick paper have no foxing and are in mint condition. A nice uniformly bound set.

Abbildung der hundert deutschen wilden Holz-Arten nach dem Numern-Verzeichnis im Forst-Handbuch von F.A.L. von Burgsdorf.

Als eine Beilage zu diesem Werke, heraus gegeben. I.(-IV.) Heft (all published). Stuttgart, gedruktin der Drukerei der Herzoglichen Hohen Karls-Schule, 1790. 4to (280 x 225mm). pp. (14), 38, with 100 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, ornamented spine with gilt lettered label (old skilful repair to hinges).

A fine copy of the first edition of this very rare botanical work describing one hundred woody plants, with fruit and flowers growing wild in Germany. The colouring of the plates is of an unusual high standard, and belongs to the very best produced in southern Germany at its summit of fine natural history production. The plates are engraved and drawn by G.F. Abel himself, a Stuttgart artist and engraver. Apart from this and one other work, also by Reiter, he is otherwise unknown as a botanical artist. One technique employed, unusual in colour-plate botanical books, is the use of background shadows to give the illusion of the plants standing slightly above the surface of the page. Reiter was a botanist and forester; he was forestry commissioner at Stuttgart 1794-1801 and later in the Würtemberger forestry department. The Burgsdorf work referred to in the title is his 'Anleitung zur sichern Erziehung....' 1787. The plates are in mint condition. Nissen BBI, 1617; Stafleu & Cowan 8971.

A very rare collection of catalogues of plants growing in the area of Altdorf (near Nuremberg), andin the botanical garden of Altdorf. All, except one, by Moritz Hoffmann (1622-1698) a Swiss professor of medicine at the University of Altdorf. This famous university was closed down in 1808. One treatise is by J.J. Baier. The last treatise is by A. Vater and described the exotic plants in the Wittenberg Botanical Garden. The first work together with an appendix published in 1691 describes the plants growing in the medical garden of Altdorf. It is illustrated with a fine double-page engraving 'Hortus Medicus Altdorffinus' showing the town of Altdorf at the rear and the botanical garden at the front. The garden consists of 4 sections with parterres, and one orangery, visitors are walking in the lanes. The second work is an extensive catalogue of plants growing in the area of Altdorf. It gives location, the description of the plants and references to literature. The fine map 'Topographia Altdorfina et viciniae' shows towns, villages and rivers, to the east the town of Nuremberg and to the west Kassel. The third work describes the months of flowering of the plants in the medical garden at Altdorf as well as indigenous plants in the area around Altdorf. The fourth work describes plants growing in the area of the small village of Leimburg (near Altdorf). The fifth work is by Joh. Jacob Baier (1677-1735) who was professor of medicine at the Altdorf university and president of the 'Acad. natur. Curios.' and director of the famous 'hortus medicus'. The botanical garden of Altdorf had been previously described by Moritz Hoffmann and in the present work by Baier numerous references are made to this former work. The work presents a history of the garden and is accompanied by an engraved map which is not present in our copy. The sixth work by Abraham Vater (1684-1751) describes the exotic plants in the botanical garden of Wittenberg University. Vater was a professor of botany and anatomy and successor of J.H. Heucher who published the first catalogue in 1711 of the 'Hortus medicus'. A small supplement to the present work was published in 1724. Pritzel 4156; 4157; 4158; 4159; 338; 9694.

Teutsche Ornithologie oder Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Teutschlands. Herausgegeben von Borkhausen, Lichthammer und Bekker dem Jüngern.

Damstadt, im Verlage der Herausgeber, 1800-1811. Folio (450 x 300mm). 21 parts (of 22), bound in 2 volumes. With 126 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines with 2 gilt lettered labels (slightly rubbed).

A fine large copy of one of the most splendid German bird books. As usual without the last part, which was published in 1817. This final part is almost always lacking due to the interruption of publication by the Napoleonic wars. Our copy contains all the 21 printed upper wrappers to the parts. A great rarity is the title-page which is found in a few copies and here replaced by the printed wrapper to the first part. Many bibliographies consider the work complete in the first edition with 21 parts. The 22nd part was in fact the first part published of the second edition. "... a work by which it was attempted to create a German parallel to the sumptuous ornithological works of other countries, notably of France, e.g. Levaillant's works, to which it was compared at that time ... and with which it is quite comparable on account of its beautiful plates. These were drawn, engraved, printed, and coloured, by Susemihl in co-operation with his brother, J.Th. Susemihl, and lateron his son, Eduard Susemihl" (Anker 52). "Nicht minder lobenswert ist auch die 'Teutsche Ornithologie', die Johann Conrad Susemihl gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder Johann Theodor und später mit seinen Kindern Eduard und Emilie in Darmstadt mit Hilfe eines Kreises begeisterter Naturfreunde schulf... die Tafeln, die in Stich wie Kolorit zu den Spitzenleistungen des späten Kupferstiches gehören... (Nissen p. 53). The work is frequently listed under Borkhausen. One plate in part 10 lacks small part of lower corner not affecting the illustration, part 11 with some marginal dampstaining at the inner margin.

The first edition was published in 1826. This second edition is in fact the remaining stock of the first edition with a new title and a supplementary half page preface. A beautifully produced work on German forest trees and shrubs. Little is known about Krebs apart that he was 'herzoglich Braunschweiger Forstschreiber'. Between 1770 and 1850 forestry became a popular subject in Germany and some major works appeared in this period by authors as, Oelhafen, Burgsdorff, Wangenheim, Kerner, Dietrich and some others. The above is one of the rarest of this group of publications and there was neither a copy in the Plesh- nor in the de Belder collection. There is a large section on roses comprising eight plates and amongst others a sections on prunes, cherries, pears and red berries. The plates are by A. Kohte and lithographed by Arckenhausen, Oehme and Müller a.o. Lacking piece of paper at the right upper corner of the title page without loss of text and one text page with marginal tear.

Abbildung der deutschen Holzarten für Forstmänner und Liebhaber der Botanik.

Berlin, in der Schüppelschen Buchhandlung, 1815-1820. 2 volumes. 4to (242 x 202mm). pp. (4), 302, with 216 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half calf, spines with gilt lines and lettering.

Willdenow, Curator of the Berlin Botanical Garden, developed the garden from modest proportions into one of the most comprehensive in Europe. He was the founder of the 19th century Berlin school of botany and Humboldt was his lifelong friend and scientific collaborator. The present work is most probably his rarest work; neither a copy in the Plesch- nor in the De Belder-collection. The beautiful engraved and handcoloured plates are after drawings by Friederich Guimpel, a famous botanical artist illustrating among others Hayne's extensive work on medical plants. The present work, which was published after Willdenow's death, and his 'Hortus Berolinensis' are his most splendid publications. A few plates trimmed with some loss of plate number. Title of text volume 2 has not been bound in and the text for the two volumes runs from page 1 to 302 as is correct. Nissen BBI, 2154. Stafleu & Cowan 2214 (listed under Guimpel).

Natürlich ausgemahlte Abbildungen Regensburgischer Insecten. Regensburg, H.G. Zunkel/ Weiss, (1766-1779). 3 volumes. 4to (265 x 215mm). With an engraved portrait of the author, 280 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates and 2 engraved vignettes. 19th century black half calf, spines with gilt lettering, marbled sides.

First edition. One of the most beautiful entomological works published during the Golden Period of South German natural history book production. Schaeffer was a clergyman-naturalist, a phenomenon so characteristic of the Enlightenment. He published a number of illustrated natural history works, mostly on insects, but also on birds and fungi of South Germany. The present work describes the insects of South Germany, especially the region around Regensburg. Schaeffer's exact descriptions and fidelity of illustration made this three volume work a mine of information for zoologists and brought it to the attention of scientists and royalty throughout Europe. The delicately handcoloured plates depict over 2000 insects. The plates are printed on both sides of the leaves. An early owner of the work has written additional information in a neat handwriting on the explanatory text leaves to the plates. Text both in Latin and German.

After John Lindley's death Heinrich Gustaf Reichenbach became the 'Orchid King'. Orchid specimens from all over the world were sent to him for identification, these with his sketches and copious notes went to build up an immense herbarium. "Though best known as an orchidologist, botanists in general owe him a debt of gratitude for his collaboration in his father's 'Icones'" (Reinikka, History of Orchids p. 215). The present work was issued in a plain and coloured edition, it forms vols. XIII of the 'Deutschlands Flora...', and this section on orchids was wholly by him. This task, his preface says, occupied him ten years. The coloured issue is scarce, and always has 5 plates not coloured. Stafleu & Cowan 8885; Nissen BBI, 1604.

A fine copy of the first edition of one of the rarest curiosities in geological literature. "In theearly years of the 18th century there were still a few skirmishes over the organic origin of fossils, but the notion that they were mere sports of nature was finally killed by ridiculous. Some pupils of J. Beringer of Würzburg decided that they would assists nature and their Professor by making some of these sports themselves; they therefore carved fantastic figures and hid them in the hills which Beringer explored. After making a large collection, he published a fully illustrated work 'Lithographiae Wirceburgensis' 1726, now one of the rarest curiosities of geological literature; for Beringer finally discovered the deception, endeavoured to buy up and destroy the whole collection" (Edwards. Early History of Paleontology, p. 34). Unfortunately he did not destroy the copies which he purchased, they were found in his house after his death and bought by a publisher who provided them with a new title-page and issued them in 1767 as a second edition of this work. M.E. Jahn & D.J. Woolf in their translation and commentary of the above work 'The Lying Stones of Dr. Johann Bartholomew Adam Beringer ...' point out that the fakes were made by two academic rivals of the university, J.I. Roderick, professor of geography and mathematics and J.G. von Eckhart, privy counsellor and university librarian, and not Beringer's students as is often believed. Our copy does not have the six pages of Hueber's 'Corollaries' which have no relation with the above work. Hueber's small work is inserted in some copies, however most copies do not have it.

Beiträge zur Naturgeschichte der Vorwelt. Herausgegeben von Wilh. Dunker und Herm. von Meyer (& K.A. Zittel).

Cassel, Theodor Fischer/ Stuttgart, Schweizerbart, (1846-) 1851-1894. Volumes 1-40. With 1743, mostly lithographed plates of which some tinted, 2 maps. Contemporary half calf, spines with green gilt lettered label, marbled sides.

A very rare, almost complete, early run of this most important paleontological periodical. Volume 2lacks 6 plates and volume 30 does not contain the monographs published between 1898 and 1906, as the library stopped subscribing after 1894. This beautifully produced periodical containing numerous monographs on fossil shells was edited by the leading 19th century German paleontologists Herm. von Meyer, Wilh. Dunker and K.A. Zittel. All famous German paleontologists of the second half of the 19th century contributed, by publishing larger or smaller monographs in the Palaeontographica. "Ein Hauptverdienst Dunkers war es, mit H. v. Meyer zusammen in 1846 die Palaeontographica begründet zu haben, das die deskriptiven Grundlagen der Paläontologie schuf. Dunker gab mit Meyer 18 dieser Bände heraus, anschliessend noch 6 Bände mit K.A. von Zittel. Besonderer Wert erhalten die zahlreichen paläontologischen Veröffentlichungen durch seine selbstgefertigten, vorzüglichen lithographischen Tafeln" (NDB IV, 199). Added to the present set are some volumes of the 'Palaeontographica Supplementbände' (supplement volumes) Supplement volumes to Palaeontographica were published on individual topics. Volume I (1862-66): Hellmann, A. Die Petrefacten Thüringens nach dem Materiale des Herzogl. Naturalien-Kabinets in Gotha; Volume II (1870-84). We have 4 of the 7 monographs, of which one does not have the plates, it however contains the superbly produced monograph by Zittel in large folio 'Die Fauna der älteren cephalopenführenden Tithonbildungen'; Volume III (1875-82), complete and bound 2 vols containing 20 monographs. A very well preserved set, one fasc. of vol. 30 bound in half cloth. Provenance: Small stamp on some title pages 'Stadtbibliothek Winterthur'.

Icones Plantarum Rariorum Horti Regii Botanici Berolinensis.

Abbildungen seltener Pflanzen des Königl. botanischen Gartens zu Berlin. Erster (-Zweiter) Jahrgang(all published!). Berlin, Veit & Co., 1841/Nicolai, 1844. 2 volumes (bound in 1). 4to (276 x 222mm). pp. (4), 61, (3), 63-123, (1), with 48 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half cloth (a bit worn).

Of this scarce and attractive work only two volumes have been published. The beautiful plates drawnand lithographed by C.F. Schmidt depict many fine illustrations of orchids, such as Oncidium, Odontoglossum, Notylia, Scelochilus, Tigridia, Epidendron (3 various species), and Rhynchopera. Another plate shows Protea longiflora, a fine South-African plant, of which the seed was brought to the Botanic Garden in Berlin, where this plant was cultivated. "Bleibende Verdienste um den Berliner Botanischen Garten, den 'Hortus regius Berolinensis', der sich damals noch in der Potsdamer Straße - auf dem heutigen Gelände des Kammergerichts und seiner Umgebung - befand, hat sich Heinrich Friedrich Link in mindestens dreifacher Hinsicht erworben. Zum einen bereicherte er ihn um viele neue, auch seltene Pflanzen, nicht zuletzt durch Samentausch mit anderen botanischen Instituten. 1843 wurden hier über 14 000 Arten gezählt, doppelt soviel wie noch zu Willdenows Zeiten; damit hatte Berlin den artenreichsten wissenschaftlichen Garten in Europa, eine Einrichtung von Weltrang (G. Fischer, 'Einer der letzten Universalgelehrten zum 230. Geburtstag des Berliner Botanikers H. F. Link'). Two old library stamps on title. Great Flower Books, 65; Nissen BBI, 1213; Pritzel 5396.

STURM, J. & J.W. - Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=6716&s_currency= STURM, J. & J.W.

Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen.

Nürnberg, gedrückt auf Kosten der Verfassers, (1796-] 1798-1862. 163 parts (in 136 volumes). Small-8vo (145 x 95mm) With 2336 coloured plates. Publisher's printed wrappers or old wrappers

Apart from 4 text leaves which are lacking in the section on phanerogams and replaced by photocopies, and 11 text leaves and the last 2 parts 35 & 36 (containing plates 49-72 and explanatory text) of the section on fungi and also replaced by (coloured) photocopies, a complete set of this rare work. The 'Deutschlands Flora' is composed in 3 different sections. The first one 'Phanerogamen' has 96 parts with 1440 handcoloured engraved plates, the second section 'Cryptogamen' has 31 parts with 416 handcoloured engraved plates and the third part 'Pilze' has 36 parts with 480 coloured plates. A complete set has not been on the market since decades. Jacob Sturm (1771 -1848) may be considered the most famous engraver of entomological and botanical scientific publications in Germany at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. During this period Nürnberg still was the centre of fine natural history book production in Germany. Sturm became a great collector of insects and founded the Nürnberg Society for Natural History. His plates are very delicately drawn and depict the smallest details and enjoyed a great popularity among naturalists. As most of his works were published in a small format, they could be purchased by a larger public. "The book contains... neat and attractive little engravings, no more than 5 in. by 3 1/2 in. in size... He thus deliberately chose this minute format in order to make a knowledge of the German flora available by pictures to as many as possible and as cheaply as possible. Despite their smallness, they carry a surprising amount of detail. Jacob Sturm learnt his art from his father, Johann Georg Sturm, who was also a Nuremberg engraver" (Blunt & Stearn p.258-260). Junk 'Rara' I p. 68; Hilpert 'Zum Andenken an Dr. Jacob Sturm, den Ikonographen der deutschen Flora und Fauna', p. 18.

Ed. G.C. Oeder, O.F. Müller, M. Vahl, J.W. Hornemann, S. Drejer, J.F. Schouw, J. Vahl, F.M. Liebmann, J. Steenstrup et J. Lange. Copenhagen 1761-1883. 51 parts and 3 supplement parts, bound in 25 volumes. Folio (385 x 253mm.). With 3240 engraved plates.

A fine complete copy of the most beautiful work on the flora of North Europe, forming the most extensive representation of the Scandinavian flora. The work was issued with plain or coloured plates. Published over a period of 122 years it comprises 3240 engraved folio plates and depicts plants of North Germany, Denmark, Norway and to a certain extent Sweden. It had the support of five successive Kings in Denmark beginning with King Frederik V (1722-1766) and ending with King Frederik VIII (1843-1912). 'The value of the work was in the accuracy and beauty of the plates made under his (Oeder's) supervision by Martin and Michael Rösssler and later, under the supervision of the Danish editors, by Christian F. Mueller (1748-1814) and Johann Theodor Bayer (1782-1873). The Rösslers together contributed some 600 plates, J.T. Bayer some 1,500 plates... Their figures unite great artistic excellence with utmost scientific exactness, so that they belong to the best of their kind...' (Stearn, W.T. The Flora Danica its history and illustrations). 'The Royal Porcelain Factory's most remarkable achievement has been the 'Flora Danica' service consisting of more than 2,300 separate pieces each decortated with representations of Scandinavian wildflowers taken from the 'Flora Danica' ' (Stearn).

Vollständige Beschreibung und Abbildung der sämmtlichen Holzarten welche im mittlern und nördlichen Deutschland wild wachsen.

Erster Theil (all published). Braunschweig, F. Vieweg und Sohn, 1826. Folio. pp. viii, 460, (2), with fine 150 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with 4 raised bands, green gilt lettered label and gilt ornaments, edges gauffered and gilt (old skilful repair to hinges).

First edition. A very fine copy of this beautifully produced work on German forest trees and shrubs. Little is known about Krebs apart that he was 'herzoglich Braunschweiger Forstschreiber'. Between 1770 and 1850 forestry became a popular subject in Germany and some major works appeared in this period by authors as, Oelhafen, Burgsdorff, Wangenheim, Kerner, Dietrich and some others. The above is one of the rarest of this group of publications and there was neither a copy in the Plesh- nor in the de Belder collection. There is a large section on roses comprising eight plates and o.a. sections on prunes, cherries, pears and red berries. The plates are by A. Kohte and lithographed by Arckenhausen, Oehne and Müller a.o. Great Flower Books p. 63; Nissen BBI, 1104; Stafleu & Cowan 3928.

Berlin, Königl. Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1865. 4to. pp. (2), 77, (1), with 4 folded tables and 5 (3 folding) coloured maps. Original printed boards.

A very scarce posthumously published work, edited by J. Roth, of one of the leading chemists of theperiod. It was published in the 'Abhandlungen der Königl. Akademie der Wissenschaften'. Mitscherlich intended to publish a large work on the volcanous of Germany, however, this is all published. "Mitcherlich's early interest in geology and mineralogy continued throughout his life. He was particularly concerned with the production of artificial minerals through the fusion of silica with various metallic oxides, and achieved some valuable results in such experiments. In his last years he made a number of journeys to the most important European volcanoes to gather data toward a general theory of volcanoes, the subject of his last, posthumously published, articles (DSB IX, p. 425).
