Afbeelding der Artsenij-Gewassen, welke in de Nederlandsche Apotheek als zoodanige vermeld zijn. Naar de beste Uitlandsche Afbeeldingen geteekend en op steen gebragt.

Leyden, Du Mortier en Zoon, 1832-1838. 4 volumes bound in two. Folio (340 x 240mm). With 265 fine handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half cloth.

One of the first scientific works with lithographed plates published in the Netherlands. The fine plates are after drawings by the author. Only 116 copies were subscribed and probably 130 copies were printed. It was issued in 53 parts and published over a period of 5 years. The publishing history of the work is complex. The first 5 plates were printed by Van Sander and Co. and published by J.C. Sepp and Son. Sepp discontinued the publication which was taken over by Mortier. Mortier issued the first 5 plates again. For this reason copies are sometimes found with 5 extra plates, and hence most bibliographies quote the wrong number of plates. Landwehr gives 266 plates, which is incorrect as plate 232 was never published. In the lists of plates in volume IV plate 232 is not listed. A fine and clean complete copy. Landwehr 6; Nissen BBI, 39.

KOPS, J. - Flora Batava, afgebeeld door en van wegens J.C. Sepp en zoon; beschreven door Jan Kops. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=7408&s_currency= KOPS, J.

Flora Batava, afgebeeld door en van wegens J.C. Sepp en zoon; beschreven door Jan Kops.

Amsterdam, Leiden, Haarlem, s'Gravenhage, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, and others, (1800)-1920. Volumes 1-25 (of 28) & 1 index volume. 4to (295 x 240mm). With 1 handcoloured engraved title page and 2000 coloured plates, engraved and coloured by hand, lithographed and coloured by hand and chromolithographed. End 19th century uniform half calf, gilt and blind-stamped spines, marbled sides (some vols. early 20th century).

A fine, almost complete set, of the most beautiful flora of the Netherlands. During a period of 134years 461 parts were published. As this is a most unusual long period of time complete sets are of the greatest rarity. It is one of the great national floras and comparable in extent and span with the 'Flora Danica', the 'Flora Graeca' and a few others. The first 13 volumes were published by Sepp & Zoon, a firm which excercised the utmost care in producing colour-plate books of outstanding quality. The first 24 volumes have the plates handcoloured, the remaining volumes have chromolithographs. For the first 10 volumes Kops was the editor, to be followed by several other editors and publishers. The quality of the plates, especially of the earlier volumes, is excellent, and makes it one of the most attractive botanical illustrated works published in the Netherlands. The index volume covers vols. 1-14. The text is both in Dutch and French. A complete copy has 28 vols with 2240 plates. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. The present copy is the precious 4to edition. The first volume has a list of 232 subscribers. Little did they know that it would take 134 years for the whole work to be completed, so that none of them was to see the last instalment. As publication took so long, it became a true monument of nineteenth-century book production, since it is extremely rare for so many developments in printing and illustration techniques to be reflected in one single work. Great Flower Books, p. 63; Nissen BBI 2247. Stafleu & Cowan II, 3874 (giving a very detailed collation and description); See also J. Baert, Jan Kops pioneer van Hollands landbouw, 1943.

Leiden, D. Noothoven van Goor, (1859-1861). 3 volumes (1 text- & 2 atlas-volumes). 8vo (170 x 130mm). pp. viii, 699, (1, errata), with 362 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, spines with gilt lettering and lines, marbled sides.

A fine copy of this beautifully produced work on the avi-fauna of the Netherlands, illustrated by the author. "A general work on the birds of Holland, with short descriptions, synonymy and an account of the distribution of each species... The figures are well-drawn and pleasing. The work was originally issued in 45 parts from 1854 to 1858 under the title 'Fauna van Nederlands vogels', by H. S. Schlegel and J.H. Herklots, being intended as part of a comprehensive work on the fauna of the country. The plan was discontinued before more than the birds were treated, and the original publisher, Trap, sold the entire edition to van Goor who issued it (according to Carus and Engelmann) in 1859 with a new title-page (as above) and with a preface by Schlegel dated December 24, 1858" (Zimmer p. 555). According to a letter of Mr. Trap in the possession of the Leyden Natural History Museum the birds were drawn by Schlegel, the landscapes however by G. J. Bos, an artist from Leyden. Hermann Schlegel was director of the Leyden Natural History Museum and famous ornithologist. He published some 163 publications of which about two thirds concern birds. Provenance: Jorge Casares with his armorial bookplate; Jan Allex de Roos with his bookplate and the signature of J.G. Verdoorn. Fine Bird Books, 105; Nissen IVB, 830; Zimmer II, 555.
