The Botanic Garden; Consisting of Highly Finished Representations of Ornamental Flowering Plants Cultivated in Great Britain with their Names, Classes, Orders, History, Qualities, Culture and Physiological Observations Volume I

$75.00 inc GST

1826. 195x160mm, no pagination (around 150pp), bound in original marbled boards and half cloth. The cloth appears to be a modern adhesive repair to the original bind. A good antiquarian volume subsequent to the repairs, the plates are the strongest feature of the work, remaining notably vibrant, apparently all maintained by original tissue gaurds. There is some rubbing, foxing, and ubiquitous toning, some excoriation obscuring the volume number of the title page, chipping of pages and board, and a discrete exlibris plate on the paste-down. Nonetheless, memorable as a lovely illustrated work.
