Book Description: W. Curtis. London. Copyright 1793. This issue circa 1812., 1793. hardbound. 2 volumes bound in one, 72 handcolored engraved plates each with facing page of text, 10 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches (26x17.5cm), decorative embossed cloth-covered boards. Plates on wove paper, generally very clean and bright, occasional light foxing or spotting (spot and pinhole to centre of plate 16, the Variegated Iris), some foxing to text pages. Front joint broken, white tape mend to interior hinge at Preface. This is an early 1800s reprint of the first two volumes of William Curtis' periodical "The Botanical Magazine." This publication proved so popular that plates from the earlier volumes were reissued to satisfy the demand of later subscribers who desired a complete set. Curtis featured some of the most decorative and popular imported plants in these early volumes, making these volumes an absolute treat for the eye. Plants include Moss Rose, several varieties of Iris, Daffodil, Gentian, Eastern Poppy, Cyclamen, and, from China: #64 Tawny Day-Lily; #25 China Pink, #42 Rose Camellia. These are very strong impressions, which are particularly pleasing contrasted against the white color of the wove paper. Bookseller Inventory # ABE48009

Book Description: H.D. Symonds, London, 1820. Cloth. Book Condition: Excellent. No Jacket. First Edition. 5.5" - 9" Tall. For extra pictures of the more valuable books, please press the 'Ask Bookseller A Question' button. Please make sure you view the gallery of extra photos of selected plates before ordering. These extra images are available on request. These books MUST be insured so please make sure you contact us before ordering through abe as standard abe postage rates do NOT apply. With 89 Stunning exquisite HAND COLOURED plates within the period 1820 to 1821. Plates 2161 to 2250 inclusive with one plate substituted (1771 for 2190) and one missing (2248). The brightness, quality and vibrancy of the colours of the plates have to be seen to be believed. Index included. Rebound in tan cloth with black and gold leather labels. Cut without any significant loss to text and plates - 5.5" - 9" Donated to library and stored at the correct humidity and temperature and then released for sale in 1998. Front Pastedown contains library plate but no other marks on title page or plates. The volumes appear not to have been used which may explain their immaculate and stunning condition. The magazine was founded in 1787 by William Curtis and has continued publication to the present day. 'The reputation of the magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants.' Curtis' principal artists were William Kilburn + James Sowerby and Sydenham T. Edwards. These skilled artists worked with him for 28 years and it was they who were responsible for most of the plates that appeared in the magazine. From October 1834 Walter Fitch became the main artist - a post that he would hold for 40 years. 'In the confident hands of a botanical artist like W.H. Fitch lithographs have an immediacy and spontaneity encountered usually only in original works of art.' This volume comes from an advertised complete run covering the first 45 years. On checking we find that there was in fact a gap in the run. Vol 46 for 1819 runs from plate 2023 to 2104 inclusive and is our book ref 4982. Complete correct with index. The binding of this volume (our book reference 4983) has vol 47showing on the spine for 1820 but is in fact a combination of 1820 and 1821. The plates start at 2161 through to 2188 for 1820. So 2105 to 2160 inclusive are missing. They then run form 2189 through to 2250. In fact the full run for 1821 is plates 2189 to 2272 inclusive. In that run the text for 2190 is faced by plate 1771. Also the publishers made an error with the printing of the plate numbers for 2247, 8 and 9. 2247 was printed as 2148 and contains a manuscript change to 2247 (this matches the text). 2247 is included in this book but excludes the text (I can provide a quality copy) Plate 2248 was incorrectly printed with 2249 on it and this is completely missing form this volume. Again I can copy the original plate and text from another volume). 2249 is correctly numbered by the publishers and is included in this book. So the book for sale covers part 1820 and 1821 with plates 2161 to 2250 inclusive subject to the omissions listed. The book contains the index for 1820. A copy of the index for 1821 can be provided if required. Our website contains 4 pictures of this book. Please note that the pink tinge to the paper is a white balance error in the camera as the paper is in fact off white. Stunning quality of plates. Bookseller Inventory # 004983

(9 1/8 x 5 5/8 inches). 90 hand-coloured engraved plates (numbered from 1771-1831, 1832A, 1832B, 1833-1859, plates #1799, #1808, #1819 , #1828, #1834, #1838, and #1851are folding), by Swan, and others. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine gilt A fine representative sample volume from the oldest illustrated botanical periodical still in production. "The reputation of the Magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants. This pictorial record of garden and greenhouse plants from the temperate and tropical regions of the world has no rival." (Desmond p.7) William Curtis had witnessed from personal experience that his clients refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants (vide. his Flora Londinensis) but he felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy plants that filled their gardens: from this premise was born the Botanical Magazine in February 1787. The work was immediately successful, was published throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and is still produced to this day. The main glory of the Botanical Magazine has always been the coloured plates. Many of the greatest British botanical illustrators of the last two hundred years have had worked published in this periodical: the majority of the earliest plates are by Sydenham Edwards; other artists who followed in his footsteps include James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker and, for much of the second half of the 19th century, Walter Hood Fitch. In the 20th century the great tradition was continued by Lilian Snelling, Margaret Stones and others.

Curtis, P. Syme, W. Herbert, S. Edwards and others. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine gilt A fine representative sample volume from the oldest illustrated botanical periodical still in production. "The reputation of the Magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants. This pictorial record of garden and greenhouse plants from the temperate and tropical regions of the world has no rival." (Desmond p.7) William Curtis had witnessed from personal experience that his clients refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants (vide. his Flora Londinensis) but he felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy plants that filled their gardens: from this premise was born the Botanical Magazine in February 1787. The work was immediately successful, was published throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and is still produced to this day. The main glory of the Botanical Magazine has always been the coloured plates. Many of the greatest British botanical illustrators of the last two hundred years have had worked published in this periodical: the majority of the earliest plates are by Sydenham Edwards; other artists who followed in his footsteps include James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker and, for much of the second half of the 19th century, Walter Hood Fitch. In the 20th century the great tradition was continued by Lilian Snelling, Margaret Stones and others.

Book Description: 1893. Book Condition: Very Good. An original hand-coloured lithograph plate by John Nugent Fitch (1840-1927) with vibrant colours, dated 1893. A superb double fold plate, Size 31 x 24cm. The condition is excellent with no off-setting, the thick paper very slightly tanned as usual. (supplied with accompanying text, but without mount) The quality of the illustrations in the Botanical Magazine is outstanding, both accurate and decorative, the colours vibrant. J. N. Fitch was the nephew of the perhaps more famous Walter Fitch and "he lithographed nearly 2500 drawings for the Botanical Magazine in a manner scarcely distinguishable from that of his uncle, thus carrying their combined connection with the periodical over a period of eighty-two years, during seventy-one of which they were its sole lithographers" (Blunt, Wilfrid, The Art of Botanical Illustrations). William Curtis (1746-1799) was a trained apothecary living in London, although his passion was for natural history, particularly plants and insects. He maintained a large well-stocked garden and began the publication of the Botanical Magazine in February 1787, which has gone on to become the most famous and influential botanical publication of its type; it is still published today, making it the longest running scientific periodical of all time. Curtis edited the first 13 volumes, and was then succeeded by John Simms (1800-1826), William Jackson Hooker (1827-1865) and Joseph Dalton Hooker (1865-1904), the current editor of the magazine is Martyn Rix. The fine illustrations were by many artists including Sydenham Edwards, William Graves, James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker, W.H. Fitch, J. N. Fitch, Matilda Smith, Lillian Snelling and Stella Rose Craig. The plates were hand-coloured up to 1948!, all being copper engravings to around 1840, and then stone or zinc lithography until the introduction of color printing in 1948. References: Blunt;The Art of Botanical Illustration, Great Flower Books pp 156 - 157, Nissen BPI 2350, Staflue 1290. (Please Note: we do not break books for plates, nor do we condone this practice.
