Annales de Flore Et de Pomone, Ou Journal Des Jardins Et Des Champs
Paris, Rousselon and others, 1833-1846. First Edition. Hardcover. Fifteen octavo (5-3/4" x 8-7/8") volumes bound in uniform contemporary half black morocco leather and marbled paper boards with the spines lettered and ruled in gilt. A nearly complete set, lacking only the last volume, containing 690 beautiful hand-colored plates, 17 of which are folding, and 1 folding black-and-white plate. This early French horticultural periodical was a rival to Curtis's Botanical Magazine in the quality of its plates which here are unsigned, but several illustrious French botanical illustrators and engravers, including Maubert, were involved in its creation. We could find only one complete set at auction in the last 30 years and only one currently in the trade, possibly the same set. Sporadic foxing and toning to the text and plates, but most plates are not foxed. Very Good and scarce .

Boston, J. M. Whittemore, (1847). First Edition. Hardcover. Bound in publisher's brown blindstamped cloth with gilt lettering and decorations on the spine.

Despite the title, this has nothing to do with photography but is rather a compendium of articles from periodicals from England, France, and Germany, and translated into English for an American audience when necessary. Subjects include Cuba, China, Russia, Central America, the relations between Mexico and the United States, and the Art of Eating. Owner name of Eastman Sanborn dated Andover, Mass. 1850 on the front endpaper. Minor foxing; chipping to spine tips and some loss along spine edges, covers tight. Good .
