FLORE PARISIENNE Contenant la Description des Plantes qui Croissent Naturellement aux Environs de Paris...

by Poiteau, Pierre Antoine; Turpin, Jean Francois

Condition: Very Good/No DJ


Paris: F. Schoell, 1813. The publication history of this work is difficult to determine though it would appear to have been published between 1808-1813 and then discontinued. It also seemed to have later assumed the name ‘Flora Parisiensis’. This copy includes the half-title page, title page [Flore Parisienne] followed by 32 pages of text and 44 leaves of fine uncoloured stipple-engraved plates. This copy includes the original information slip which states "Les neuf premiers Livraisons renfermeront Les Nos 1-5, 7-10, 13,15, 17-20, 22-26, 28-32, 34, 35, 37-41, 45-53, 59, 61, 68 des Planches. Les Nos. 6,11,12,16, 21 formeront la dixieme Livraison. Les Nos. 27, 33, 36, 42, 43 la onzieme. Les Nos. 44 54, 55, 56, 57 la douzieme." translated thus. " The first nine Deliveries [parts] will contain the Nos 1-5, 7-10, 13, 15, 17-20, 22-26, 28-32, 34, 35, 37-41, 45-53, 59, 61, 68 of the plates. The nos. 6, 11, 12, 16, 21 will form the tenth Part. The nos. 27, 33, 36, 42,43 the eleventh. The nos. 44 54, 55, 56, 57 the twelfth." It is our understanding that the later parts were never published - in fact the literature states that only 8 parts were published but the original publication slip here would suggest that in fact it was 9 parts. The number of plates present is 44 which conforms with the above numbers as far as the 9th part and therefore has the full complement of plates at least in this form (Books at auction under the title Flora Parisiensis have stated 48 plates and include plate numbers 74-75, which are not mentioned on the publication slip here). The text finishes at page 32 and only goes up to plate 36 so is probably incomplete. This copy is unbound and housed in an old portfolio, the leaves are uncut and the paper bright and and fresh without foxing, a few leaves slightly worn at the edges, plate 68 is torn and creased at the bottom edge in several places but not affecting the plate mark. A very good copy. Seemingly very scarce. We would be pleased to have this bound on your behalf should you wish - please contact us for details.. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No DJ. Elephant Folio.
