 NEES VON ESENBECK, THEODOR FRIEDRICH LUDWIG, Plantae Officinalis Oder Sammlung Officineller Pflanzen
NEES VON ESENBECK, THEODOR FRIEDRICH LUDWIG
Plantae Officinalis Oder Sammlung Officineller Pflanzen
1828. NEES VON ESENBECK, Theodor Friedrich Ludwig. PLANTAE OFFICINALIS oder Sammlung Officineller Pflanzen mit Lithographirten Abbildungen von A. Henry, und Beschreibungen von M.F. Weyhe, J.W. Wolter, und P.W. Funke. Fortgesetzt von Dr. Th. Fr. L. Nees v. Esenbeck. Dusseldorf, Arnz & Comp. [1821-]1828-1833. A great encyclopedia of medicinal plants, including the rare Supplement volume, is offered complete in three folio volumes: one volume of text, measuring 16 x 9.5 in. accompanied by two plate volumes with a combined total of 558 lithographed plates, measuring 18.25 x 11 in. of which 550 are hand-colored and 8 are plain. The plates by Aime Henry are both attractive and painstakingly clear and accurate. Nees von Esenbeck (1787-1837), the main author, was Inspector of the Leiden Botanic Garden and Director of the Bonn University Botanic Garden. The majority of this work was first issued from 1821-28 in 18 parts with 438 plates. A Supplement was published from 1829-33 in 5 parts with additional text and 120 plates. The descriptive texts and the plates from both the main work of 1828 and its 1833 Supplement have been alphabetized and bound together in the present three-volume format of one text and two plate volumes, retaining the title-pages from each. Text volume: [511] ff.; plate volumes: [ii, 274] ff. and [i, 284] ff. The text leaves are unsigned and unfoliated. The plates are unfoliated too, despite being identified by number in the indices bound at the end of the text volume, and have subsequently been consecutively numbered lightly in pencil across the two volumes, from 1 through 558. The text volume has two letterpress title-pages, the first dated 1828, and the second dated 1833 with the words "ICONES PLANTARUM MEDICINALIUM .. Erster Supplement-band mit 120 Abbildungen." The plate volumes have three lithographed title-pages between them. The first plate volume also has two title-pages dated 1828 and 1833. Although the 1833 title-page retains PLANTAE OFFICINALIS as the main title, it ends with "Erster Supplement-band mit 120 Abbildungen." Bound in contemporary quarter-leather and marble paper-covered boards, with the title SAMMLUNG OFFIZINELLER PFLANZEN gilt-stamped to spines, the bindings are worn at extremities and scuffed, and both bookblocks are separated in two within the bindi. Ill.: ENRY, Aime.

Kanji Shöhin Gashü
1933. [FLOWERS]. KANJI SH‘HIN GASHŘ {Kyoto, MARIA Gabo, Showa 8 [1933]} 29.5 x 41.6 cm. 15 oblong color woodblock prints of flowers, many in fan format. Maria Gabo was a very skillful woodblock printing house in the 1930s. Their aesthetic sense differs from others of the period, the pallette is subtler, the printing more "boneless" - overall a more painterly effect is achieved in this group of prints by two of the most celebrated Kyoto artists of the day, Kobayashi Kanji (1892-1974) and Matsumura Suiho. Here, MARIA has created prints embellished with all the effects of a deluxe production, bokashi, mica, overprinting, etc. etc. The original ribbon-bound boards with printed papertitle label are worn, the prints themselves are very good. Very unusual collection, MARIA Gabo productions have almost always been broken up for the prints. Complete. .

 HOOKER, WILLIAM JACKSON, Botanical Miscellany: Containing Figures and Descriptions
HOOKER, WILLIAM JACKSON
Botanical Miscellany: Containing Figures and Descriptions
1830. HOOKER, William Jackson. BOTANICAL MISCELLANY: Containing figures and descriptions of such plants as recommend themselves by their novelty, rarity, or history, or by the uses to which they are applied in the arts, in medicine, and in domestic oeconomy; together with occasional botanical notices and information, VOL. I[-III]. London: John Murray, 1830[-1833]. Three octavo volumes illustrated with 152 (of 154) engraved plates, of which 20 are folding and 64 are hand-colored. The plates are by Dr. Greville, W. J. Hooker, Re. L. Guilding, A.M. W. Wilson, J. Newman, Mme. Bernard, Prof. Boyer, J. F. Klotzsch, Mrs. C. Telfair, Miss Baigrie, engraved by Swann. The author, William Jackson Hooker (1785-1865), botanist, was appointed the first full-time director of the Royal Gardens at Kew in 1841. Over the course of his long tenure, which ended at his death in 1865, he helped develop and create the modern Royal Gardens at Kew. Hooker followed the "Botanical Miscellany" with a second series, begun in 1834, entitled "The Journal of Botany." Vol. 1: [iv], 1-222,221-356 pp. plates 1-67, 67 bis, 68-75. Vol. 2: [ii], [1]-421 pp. plates.76-95, suppl. pl. 1-19. Vol. 3: [ii], [1]-390 pp. plates 96-109, 111 & 112, suppl. pl. 21-41. According to Stafleu et al. (TL-2, 2999): "The supplementary plates, all hand-col. copper engr. are sometimes lacking, especially nos. 1-10." This copy has all but one supplementary plate, no. 20, which is also lacking in the copies described by Nissen, Pritzel, and Sitwell amd Blunt. Stafleu continues "The regular plates are (mostly) uncoloured, except for 110, which is coloured, but which is also mostly missing." This copy has almost all regular plates, of which twenty-four in Vol. 1 are colored. Unfortunately it lacks the "mostly missing" plate 110. The plates are clean and bright and, when colored, nicely so. The text, too, is very nearly complete, lacking only the errata slip in Vol. 1. There is some occasional light to moderate foxing, mostly in Vols. 2 and 3, that does not affect the pates. Ex library, with an ink stamp and a perforated stamp on title-page, a perforated stamp at head of first text leaf, and an ink stamp on page 50 in each volume. The plates are unmarked. In worn publisher's bindings of green cloth, each with the book-label of Samuel A. D. Sheppard and a library stamp on front pastedown and call numbers on spine. Vols. .
