Exotic Botany: consisting of coloured figures, and scientific descriptions, of such new, beautiful, or rare plants as are worthy of cultivation in the gardens of Britain...

By James Edward Smith

London: Printed by R Taylor and Co and sold by James Sowerby, by J White, Symonds, 1804 Complete 2 volume set of the 1st edition in the original publisher's boards, with 120 hand coloured plates of which 35 are folding. A beautiful work which fully displays the artistry of James Sowerby. The bindings were only intended to last until the owner bound the volumes to their own taste, and so are now very worn and the stitching is very wobbly. The pages are untrimmed and although just on the margin of the quarto size, the volumes are the scarce octavo variant, published at the same time as the quarto. Both volumes have the armorial bookplate of Joseph Radcliffe Baronet of Rudding Park to the front pastedown. Volume I: title 1804; dedication 1p; preface 3pp; text 118 pp with 60 plates (16 folding); index. Very clean with the occasional light spot and some offsetting. Vol II: title 1805; text 122 pp with 60 plates (19 folding) ; index. Plate 103 has a pasted slip correcting the caption. Text page 33 has some offsetting; plate 96 some browning; text pp 111-2 have some browning; some of the folding plates need refolding. There is occasional light scholarly pencil annotation.

English Botany: or, coloured figures of British Plants, with their essential characters, synonyms, and places of growth.

By James Edward Smith

London : Printed by Richard Taylor for the Proprietor, C. E. Sowerby, 1832 A good copy of the short 2nd edition, complete in 7 volumes, with 1,588 partially hand coloured plates by James Sowerby. In contemporary half leather bindings with gilt compartments and title labels to spines, and marbled boards. The history of the 2nd and 3rd editions of English Botany is a particularly complicated one. After the 1st edition was published (1812), C E Sowerby decided to reorganise the work so that it was more systematic. This second edition began appearing in parts in 1832 to form a 7 volume set. The preface in Vol I refers to the edition as the 'second or small edition' - the reduced size probably being a matter of cost. Confusingly Judith Sowerby added a further 5 volumes in 1842 and then called the initial 7 the 3rd edition and the new 5, the second edition. Given that the work was issued in parts, it follows that there are 2nd edition sets with later title pages on some volumes! And, just to confuse further a true 3rd edition was issued around 20 years later. The 2nd edition can be distinguished by the double plate numbering: the plates have their original 1st edition number and the reorganised 2nd edition number. This set is as follows: Vol I: preface, text and index 87pp; 193 plates and 27 bis plates - dated from the preface, title page states 'second edition'. Vol II: 1849 'third edition', text and index 85pp; 185 plates and 20 bis plates. Vol III: 1836 2nd edition; text and index 105pp; list of supplementary plates; 205 plates and 11 bis plates incl 2 folding; page marker present. Vol IV: 1837 2nd edition; text and index 81pp; errata and list of supplementary plates; 166 plates and 22 bis plates [possibly lacking 2 bis]; page marker present. Vol V: 1838 2nd edition; text and index 126pp; list of suppl plates; 236 plates and 12 bis plates; page marker. Vol VI: 1839 2nd edition; text and index 106pp; suppl plate list; 210 plates and 21 bis plates. Vol VII: 1840 2nd edition; text and index 132pp; 2 lists of suppl plates; 239 plates and 41 bis plates. The bindings are sound but with wear to edges and corners, and general scuffing. All volumes have an ownership signature to the fep. Text pages generally clean with very occasional spotting. Plates vary from exceptionally bright and clean to having brown toning and/or some spotting. The bis plates are particularly prone to the browning/spotting, and they have pencil notes to the titles. Some of the bis plates have nibbled edges suggesting that they may have been tipped in later. There is occasional marking where old bookmarks (and a pressed plant) were kept. One plate has a small repaired tear.

By Mrs R Lee

London : Grant and Griffith, 1854 A fair to good copy in blue decorative cloth binding with 8 colour plates by James Andrews. The binding has gilt decoration to the front board and gilt decoration and titles to spine. The spine is faded with pulling to top and bottom and wear to spine joints. The corners have some wear. Contents: frontispiece, title page, preface, contents listing, 7 further plates, and text. 464pp including index. The plates are clean and well-coloured (although it looks a little strange having them bound at the front), but without tissue-guards. Text is clean.

Ladies' Botany: or a familiar introduction To the Study of the Natural System of Botany

By John Lindley

London: James Ridgeway and Sons A fair copy of the 2nd edition - undated but 1830's-40's, in the original cloth binding with 25 hand coloured plates. There is no indication that this is Part I, of Ladies' Botany, but it is the first volume of what later became a 2 volume set. It became a classic work, setting out, through a series of letters, how the plant world could be explained to children. This copy is classed as 'fair' because there is a lot of foxing to the text and offsetting from the plates to the text - particularly at Plate 9, which has strong red colouration. The tissue-guard to the frontispiece is very browned. The plates are generally cleaner - the plate paper has light toning. The binding is in good sound condition having had a fairly recent repair to relay the spine and provide new endpapers. The gilt titles to the spine are faded and there is a little marking to the boards. 302pp including index, with publisher's catalogue to the rear.

The Moral of Flowers

By Rebecca Hey

London, Leeds: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green and Longman; and M Robinson, 1835 A fair copy of the second edition of this relatively scarce work by Rebecca Hey (who is not named on the title page), with 24 hand coloured plates. The half morocco leather and buckram binding has gilt titles and decoration to the spine. It is complete but worn, and there is a pasted label 'The Property of St Cyres Guest House, Jersey' to the bottom of the front board. There is bumping to corners and the back board is a little bubbly and grubby. Internally, the original endpapers are present with an ink signature dated 1909 to the front pastedown. The stitching is holding, but there is a split after the fep, between that and a preliminary blank. With half title (small ink signature to top); title page; advertisement to the second edition in which the author states that this edition is corrected and contains more poems; preface; contents and plate list; text and 24 hand coloured plates. The contents are very shaken and plate 9 is present, but detached. Plate 19 has a little marking, but generally the plates and text are very clean. Plate 24 has a creased tissue-guard. There is the odd spot or mark, but a binding repair would produce a very good copy.

Favourite Flowers of Garden and Greenhouse Vols I-IV

By Edward Step, William Watson [editor]

London and New York: FREDERICK WARNE & CO. LTD. Fair 4 volume set in plain cloth bindings, undated but probably early 1900's, with 316 high quality colour printed plates. Classed as 'fair' because of the binding but contents are very clean and in very good condition. Each volume with frontispiece and 78 colour plates; Vol IV with index, 691pp in all (consecutive numbering). The cloth bindings have fading to spines and boards. They are quite tight but a section in Vol IV is loosening at the bottom gather and the tightness is probably more due to lack of use than quality of binding. There is some reinforcement to the gutter of a couple of pages in Vol I; sellotape ends on the fep and a pencil signature to the reverse of the final page. Vol II has some repair to the half title page. Vol IV has a plate bound out of order but all are present. A nice clean set of an authoritative work.

British Wild Flowers

By Mrs Loudon

LONDON: William S Orr & Co, 1846 A poor copy of this beautiful work with 60 hand coloured plates. Classed as poor because the title page is missing; the binding is poor - in marked plain cloth and beginning to detach; and there is a little marking internally. The pagination matches our other 2nd edition copy so this is presumed as second, dated to 1846. The plates are in good condition - there is some brown spotting to edges, and around 3 have a darkened section, again at the edge not affecting the flower image (we have noticed only one plate with a light mark affecting the flower). All have tissue guards - one guard is torn and one has a small hole - most guards have marking. A few text pages have a little marking and p 117 has a repaired tear to the top margin. The final index page has a small hole at the top. This copy would be well worth rebinding.

The Botanical Cabinet, consisting of coloured delineations of Plants from all Countries, with a short Account of each. Directions for management &cc &cc. Volume X

By Conrad Loddiges & Sons

London: John and Arthur Arch, Cornhill. Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green. Paternoster Row. & C Loddiges & Sons, Hackney, 1824 A scarce complete volume of Loddiges' Botanical Cabinet, with 100 hand coloured plates engraved by George Cooke. Conrad Loddiges founded a plant nursery business in Hackney and the family became famous for exotic and rare plants. The mauve rhododendron that has become common in Great Britain today was imported by Conrad Loddiges. The Botanical Cabinet showcases the rare plants that they imported and grew. This volume is volume X, dated 1824. In contemporary half leather binding with marbled boards and endpapers. Top page edges gilt. The spine has gilt compartments and elaborate gilt tooling. There are title and volume labels. Internally there is a decorative title page and then a series of plates, each followed by a brief description on a separate page. There are 100 plates of which 9 are folding. There is an index at the rear. The binding is in very good condition. There is a little rubbing and fraying to the board edges. Internally the preliminaries and title page have browning. There is some brown toning to page edges and some brown spotting/marking to the page edges most visible when the book is closed. The plates do not have tissue guards, so there is sometimes offsetting to the text pages and, very rarely, a return slight darkening on the plate. There is the odd spot otherwise, but the contents are in very good condition.

Greenhouse Favourites. A description of choice greenhouse plants, with practical directions for their Management and Cultivation

By [Shirley Hibberd. Editor]

LONDON: Groombridge and Sons A VG copy in the original green decorative cloth binding with gilt plant pictures and titles to front board and spine, and blind stamped decoration to rear board. The boards have bevelled edges. This work is generally attributed to Shirley Hibberd. It is clear from the Preface that it contains work from a number of authors, so it is likely that Hibberd had the editorial role. A number of the colour plates appear in 1870's copies of the Floral World - again edited by Hibberd. It is undated but is probably late 1870's/early1880's. With title page in red and black inks; colour printed frontispiece and 35 further colour printed plates, and numerous black and white illustrations - some full page. The binding is slightly shaken with a little bumping to corners and wear to edges including spine joint edges. The original endpapers are present. The contents are generally very clean apart from the very occasional brown spot. Some of the plant outlines can be seen faintly on the reverse of the plate. All the plates are tissue guarded - some of the guards are browned. This was an expensive production - on thick good quality paper. A beautiful work.

Conversations on Botany

By Sarah and Elizabeth Fitton

London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green , 1831 A good copy of this charming work with 21 hand coloured plates by Sowerby. In new brown cloth binding with leather title label to spine and new endpapers. With publisher's catalogue, half title, frontispiece, title page, introduction, contents listing and text with 20 further hand coloured plates - one double page. The contents are generally clean and the plates well coloured. There is very occasional spotting and the colouring on one plate has run slightly. The book was intended to instruct young people in botany - and one of them, or their tutor, has decided that horse chestnut does not have a 't' in the middle of it - so have crossed the offending letter out twice on page 97! Small book, please enquire if you would like us to assess postage at cost.

London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge A very nice set in original green decorative cloth bindings, aeg, with 316 colour printed tissue-guarded plates and 1 plain plate.

By B Maund [Benjamin Maund]

London : Simpkin & Marshall, 1825 Volumes I - VII of the 1st edition of Maund's Botanic Garden ranging in date from 1825 to 1836 (Vol VII is undated) with 167 of 168 fine hand coloured plates. It was originally issued in parts and these volumes are in what looks like an original publisher's cloth binding which is worn and disintegrating with some poor stitching, so this set has been priced to take account of rebinding costs. The book is in a square octavo format and text pages are printed on one side only. The contents are clean and bright with beautiful colouring on the plates (faults are listed in the detailed description below). There is some offsetting where particularly strong colour has been applied and shows through to the back of the plates. All have a decorative title page and an additional title page. Vol IV has a third title page part way through the book. All are unpaginated. Vol I has a dedication 'to the lovers of Botany', preface and index - the 9th plate has some browning at the edges and there are some loose pages. Vol II has a preface and index pages. Some initial leaves are detached and the decorative title is browned. One plate lacks a tissue guard and one plate is slightly spotty as are around 5 of the surrounding text pages. Vol III has an index. The 18th plate has a slight crease at the bottom. Vol IV has a preface, index and dedication page to the Queen. The preliminaries, and title page are spotted; there is a small ink signature to the top of the second title page; and 2 plates have slight marking.

Wild Flowers

By Anne Pratt

LONDON: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge A rare folio version of Anne Pratt's work on wild flowers with the title Wild Flowers, followed by 'One Hundred and Ninety-Two Plates Colored, with descriptions'. There is no author's name or date but it is likely to be 1853 (referenced in Freeman). Normally issued in 2 x 12 mo volumes, this work has 2 plant illustrations per page together with the relevant text below. The pages are printed on one side only and each page has a price at the bottom suggesting that they were sold individually. The pages are loosely bound into a soft paper board binding - most are detaching. There is no title page or index - it looks as though the plates were issued simply as plates. Some have some wear and browning to edges - which could be trimmed. Otherwise the illustrations are very clean and there is little marking. The paper binding is in fairly poor condition.

Popular Botany

By James Main

London : Orr and Smith , 1835 A nice copy of this rare work. It originated as an article for the British Cyclopaedia of Natural History, and was enlarged for separate publication to give readers a systematic introduction to the science of Botany. In original pebbled brown cloth with gilt title on spine, and gilt edges to pages. Profusely illustrated with line drawings and with hand coloured plates. The binding is in good condition - the spine has been relaid at some point and corners and spine edges have been repaired so the book is tight and firm. With marbled endpapers and signature of Miss Wilson and the number 14 to one of the preliminaries. Internally the book is very clean and bright. The index of illustrations is difficult to interpret as it does not distinguish between text illustrations and plates and appears to randomly list some text illustrations and not others - however, I think the book is lacking a colour plate frontispiece and 2 other plates giving 24 plates present of a possible 27. Small light book, please enquire if you would like us to assess postage at cost

The Flowering Plants and Ferns of Great Britain, [with] - The British Grasses and Sedges - Vols I-VII

By Anne Pratt

London : The Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1860 A 7 volume set comprising Anne Pratt's works on flowering plants, ferns, grasses and sedges in original decorative cloth bindings. Profusely illustrated by colour printed plates produced by W Dickes from original art work by Anne Pratt. All page edges gilt. The set is undated but is clearly very early. Pratt's work on flowering plants was first published circa 1855 in 5 volumes with a separate volume on ferns published in the same year, which could form part of the set. The volume on grasses and sedges was first published in 1859 and could then be combined with the other 6 to make a 7 volume set. This set is classed as good overall. The light purple cloth bindings with gilt decoration to front board and gilt titles and decoration to spine, are generally sunned to the spine with a lot of chipping to the spine and occasionally board edges. 3 are slightly shaken with stitching occasionally visible. Vol VII - Sedges has very loose stitching at a couple of points which could lead to splitting. They all have bumped corners and there are occasional indentations and bubbling. They are in overall fair condition. The contents are in very good clean condition - all the plates are clean and tissue-guarded and there is very little spotting or browning. Vol I: 288pp plus publisher's list; 46 colour and 1 plain plate. Vol II: 355pp 39 plates, list at rear. Vol III: 410pp, 53 plates, list at rear. Vol IV: 328pp, 53 plates, list at rear.
