Getreue Darstellung und Beschreibung der in der Arzneykunde gebräuchlichen Gewächse, wie auch solcher, welche mit ihnen verwechselt werden können.

Berlin, auf Kosten des Verfassers (& Nicolai'sche Buchhandlung), 1805-1837. 13 volumes (bound in 6). 4to (273 x 230mm). With 1 lithographed portrait and 624 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform black half morocco, richly gilt spines with gilt ornaments and lettering, cloth sides (some minor skilful repair to spines).

One of the finest German works on medical plants. Gottlob Friedrich Hayne (1763-1832) was a German botanist and pharmacist as well as professor of pharmaceutical botany in Berlin and a contemporary of C.L. Willdenow. Hayne published several botanical works of which some together with Friedrich Guimpel. The present work of which the plates according to Stafleu are 'beautifully coloured... showing only one species (mostly phanerogams; some cryptogams)' is Hayne's major work. After Hayne's death volume 12 and 13 were edited by J.F. Brandt and J.T. Ratzeburg. The elaborate plates are almost all by Friedrich Guimpel, a famous botanical artist and engraver and professor at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. Guimpel illustrated some of the finest botanical works of the period such as Willdenow's impressive work 'Hortus Berolinensis'. Six years after volume 13 had been published J.F. Klotzsch brought out 24 lithographed plates, as a kind of supplement. This supplementary volume remained unfinished and is mostly not present. Volume 13 is, as is often the case, the early issue, without the preface by Hayne's widow and the general index. Great Flower Books, p. 58; Nissen BBI, 815; Stafleu & Cowan 2508.

La Botanique mise à la portée de tout le monde ou collection des plantes d'usage dans la médecine, dans les alimens et dans les arts.

Avec des notices instructives pulsées dans les auteurs les plus célèbres, contenant la description,le climât, la culture, les propriétés et les vertus propres à chaque plante. Précédé d'une introduction à la botanique, ou dictionaire abregé des principaux termes emploiés dans cette science. Paris, chez l'auteur, 1774. 3 volumes. Large folio (488 x 366mm). With 3 handcoloured engraved titles and 472 handcoloured engraved plates. Recent green half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines with 2 red gilt lettered labels and 5 raised bands, marbled sides.

First edition. According to Blunt "Perhaps the most impressive French botanical book of the period is François Regnault's 'La Botanique' with nearly five hundred hand-coloured etchings. Many of these plates are the work of Genéviève de Nangis Regnault. The book deals with useful and decorative plants, and the author engagingly described the potato 'as possibly the only good thing that ever came out of America'". Regnault was a French physician and botanist and his wife drew and engraved most of the plates. Our copy contains the 'Table des Maladies' and 'Table des noms des Plantes' bound at the end of volume 3. There is some occasional slight discolouration to the paper, last 25 leaves of third volume with small damage at the outer margin. Great Flower Books, p. 72: "A very impressive book"; Dunthorne 256; Nissen BBI, 1600 (erroneously quoting 475 plates); Stafleu & Cowan 8810.

BULLIARD, P. - Herbier de la France, ou Collection complette des Plantes Indigènes de ce Royaume; avec leurs détails anatomiques, leurs propriétés, et leurs usages en Médecine. http://www.antiquariaatjunk.com/item.php?item=8043&s_currency= BULLIARD, P.

Herbier de la France, ou Collection complette des Plantes Indigènes de ce Royaume; avec leurs détails anatomiques, leurs propriétés, et leurs usages en Médecine.

Paris, chez l'Auteur, Didot Jeune..., 1780-(1793). 15 volumes. Folio (345 x 255mm). With 1 colour-printed frontispiece and 602 colour-printed engraved plates, 4 engraved plates (2 plates of 'Observations microscopiques' of which 1 coloured and 2 plates 'Tableaux des Genres'), and 12 engraved tables 'années 1-12'. Contemporary pink boards.

An uncut copy. As usual it does not contain the second volume of the text of the 'Histoire des Champignons de la France'. The second part of this volume was published posthumously by Ventenant in 1812 and was destroyed by fire soon after printing and is found in only a few copies. The present work is one of the most interesting colour-printed natural history works. The fine delicate plates are of a great scientific exactness, all by Bulliard who drew, engraved, and printed the plates himself. The colour-printing without retouching by hand, is in the Le Blon-Gauthier method, using a separate plate for each colour. A technique rarely employed for botanical books. "Bulliard was his own printer. He mixed colored inks with great delicacy and, in general, accuracy, and inked his tint plates with minute attention to detail. Some of his tintings seems to have relied on the additional effect of a rich ink tone to give greater local 'solidity'. The three tint plates were overprinted on the 'key' plate with hair's-breadth accuracy, and evidence of his method of obtaining such precise positioning, or register, can be seen in pin holes at upper right and lower left corners of the line frame. The final effect is delicate, pleasing and botanically accurate, and the whole collection has a unique quietly individual flavor. The degree of craftmanship necessary to create these prints is only apparent when one studies them in close detail' (Printing in the service of Botany, 39). The 'Herbier de la France' is composed as follows: Herbier de la France. Première division: Histoire des plantes vénéneuses et suspectes de la France. Paris 1784. pp. (4), x, 177, (1). Herbier de la France seconde division: Histoire des champignons de France, Tome premier. Paris 1791. pp. (2), xvi, 368, ix. Our copy contains plates 601 and 602 (loosely inserted at the end), missing in most copies. Pritzel mentions 600 as a total and says: 'les planches 601 et 602 manquent habituellement' and according to Dr W. Junk they might have been destroyed during the revolution. Raspail in 1840 republished these 2 plates. Of the 600 plates 382 show fungi. Provenance: Bookplate of Dr. J.R. Chapuis.

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.

Historia naturalis Brasiliae, ... in qua non tantum Plantae et Animalia, sed et indigenarum morbi, ingenia et mores describuntur...

Lugdun. Batavorum et Amstelodami, F. Hackium apud L. Elzevirium, 1648. Folio (397 x 248mm). pp. (xii, including frontispiece), 122, (2); (iv), 293, (7), with engraved frontispiece and ca. 500 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine in 7 compartments, sides with large gilt English Royal coat of arms of James II and the motto of the English chivalric Order of the Garter 'Honi soit qui mal y pense', and 2 gilt borders (skilful repair to hinges and foot of spine).

First edition and a very special copy from the famous John Roland Abbey collection in an English Royal binding of the first major survey of the natural history of Brazil and the most extensive documentation on the Brazilian flora and fauna of the 17th century. It is also a pioneering work on tropical medicine. Landis comments: "This magnificent book, the most noted work of science in seventeenth-century Holland, was a product of that century's Dutch conquest of a portion of Brazil. It remained the one great illustrated work on the natural history of Brazil until the major expeditions of the nineteenth century generated new publications". Willem Piso (1611-1678; Dutch physician) was sent by the Dutch West Indies Company as the leader of the scientific mission to Brazil, where he was accompanied by the German naturalist and traveler Georg Marcgraf (1610-1644). Marcgraf's contributions to the above work are the descriptions and woodcut illustrations of the natural history matter depicting fishes, birds, quadrupeds and serpents as well as insects, and for the larger part plants. The part on the northeastern region of Brazil and the linguistics and ethnography of its inhabitants is followed by an extensive Tupi vocabulary of the Tapuia Indians. The fine pictorial titlepage is engraved after a drawing by Matham, the original of which is in the Albertina Library in Vienna. Provenance: The coat of arms are of James II (1633-1701), as Duke of York. This means that the arms date from before 1685, when James became King, and would have adopted slightly different arms; Armorial bookplate of John Roland Abbey and bookplate of John Henry Gurney.

Londres/ Paris, P.F. Didot jeune, 1775. 4 volumes (2 text volumes & 2 volumes of plates). 4to (250 x 194mm). pp. (4), 32, 1-621; (3), 622-976, 52, 160, with engraved frontispiece and 392 fine engraved plates. Contemporary mottled calf, richly gilt floral ornamented spines in 6 compartments, with 2 red gilt lettered labels.

A fine copy of the first flora of French Guiana, profusely illustrated with excellent plates. "Aublet's further words on the conditions under which a naturalist worked in the French possessions are almost identical to those of Adanson with respect to his Senegalese years; the scorn of the other settlers, the absence of chances of financial reward, the hard-boiled mercenary attitude of his 'colleagues'. In addition to that are the hardships of trying to botanize in the tropical jungle with its - at that time - almost unknown hazards. ... The 'Histoire' of 1775 is written, characteristically, in French and in Latin ... it is remarkable that Aublet's book is fully Linnaean both with respect to taxonomy (the sexual system and the generic delimitations) and to nomenclature. It contains the descriptions of not less than 400 new species ... it is still the basis for the study of the flora of the Guiana region" (Stafleu. Linnaeus and the Linnaeans, p. 283). "It is clear that Fusée Aublet should be considered one of the 'founding fathers' of neotropical ethnobotany. Although most botanists think of his 'Histoire des Plantes de la Guiane Françoise' as a taxonomic treatise, Aublet was in fact sent to French Guiana as an Apothecary-Botanist. His book describes uses of 124 species from 56 different families. That he employed many of the plants himself and that he used many of the vernacular names as the bases for his Latin names seems to indicate a high regard for the botanical sophistication of his indigenous colleagues" (Plotkin, Boom & Allison.

First Latin edition of this important work on toxicology. The first French edition was published byPlantin in 1568. The present Latin edition was translated from the French by the Augsburg physician Hieremias Martius. Jacques Grevin (c. 1539-1570) was a French poet and dramatist and disciple of Ronsard. "Grevin was originally educated as a physician, and wrote several works on medical and scientific topics. His two books on poisons, while adding nothing new to toxicological knowledge, showed a distinctively skeptical and realistic attitude towards the writings of both classical and modern authors, with whom Grévin often disagreed. He also casts doubt on several superstitious beliefs, such as the efficacy of amulets against poison, or the turquoise's power to detect the presence of toxic substance. Two books on poisons was published with Grevin's verse translation of 'Theriaka' and 'Alexipharmaka', two didactic poems on poisonous plants and animals by the Hellenistic physician Nicander of Colophon (b. ca. A.D. 275)" ('The Haskell F. Norman library of Science & Medicine' 439, quoting the French edition). The excellent woodcuts show snakes, amphibia, scorpions, fish, a dog suffering from rabies, poisonous plants etc. Durling 2174; Nissen ZBI, 1713.
