Item Description: for W. Curtis, London, 1819. A run of the first forty-six volumes (bound in 25), plus an index volume, octavo, engraved portrait in index volume (lightly foxed) and 2104 hand-coloured engraved plates, some folding, some foxing and the typical offsetting but the plates unusually bright; a most attractive set in contemporary half calf, marbled boards, neatly and professionally rebacked to style. One of the most important early botanical journals. An excellent unbroken run covering the best years of "the oldest scientific periodical of its kind with coloured illustrations in the world?In the beauty of production and high standard of its contribution it can claim a unique place" (Patrick Synge, Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society 1948, 7e:5-6).Most of the early plates were from drawings by Sydenham Edwards and the colouring by William Graves. Other distinguished artists included James Sowerby, John Curtis, and William Jackson Hooker.This set comprises the first and most of the second era of the magazine, relating to the editorships of William Curtis himself (vols. I-XVI) and then his successor Dr. John Sims. The work is unmatched for information on the contemporary gardening scene, because both Curtis and Sims understood the close relationship between gardeners and nurserymen, and wanted to advertise the new plants as they became available. With plants from all over the globe, including hundreds from the Cape (due to the indefatigable Francis Masson), as well as the Americas and south-east Asia, the present set includes over 160 finely illustrated Australian plants, of which the substantial majority date from after the voyage of Matthew Flinders, with all manner of notes derived from Peter Good and Robert Brown.William Curtis (1746-1799) was an important botanist of his day and a member of the Linnean Society. An initial interest in entomology saw him publish his early collectors' guide, Instructions for Collecting and Preserving Insects (1771), but he soon turned to botany, cutting his teeth at the Chelsea Physic Garden, and later working at Bermondsey and the London Botanic Garden. John Sims (1749-1831) was a physician and botanist, connected to the large network of Quakers in England. A member of both the Linnean Society and the Royal Society, he was ideally placed to take over the Botanical Magazine after the death of Curtis, until he himself retired in 1826.It would be impossible to list the fantastic array of Australian plants in any detail here, but the first is the Mimosa verticillata (February 1790), collected by David Nelson on Cook's third voyage. A notable inclusion is a pair of fine plates relating to the cultivation of the "magnificent" Gymea Lily, noted as having been first cultivated by the Right Hon. Charles Long of Bromley Hill in Kent.Although the beautifully executed plates, most by renowned artist Sydenham Edwards, are the glory of the work, the notes on contemporary gardens and nurseries provide added interest, revealing a complex network of exotic gardens, with famous names such as Lee and Kennedy of Hammersmith and Loddiges of Hackney, as well as lesser lights such as Whitley, Brame & Milne of Fulham, or Grimwood & Wyke of Kensington. It would be possible to draw a remarkable sketch of this network based on a close reading of the Botanical Magazine alone, a sketch which would help reveal important details of a genteel trade in the process of becoming a serious business.

Item 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

Item Description: printed by Stephen Couchman, published by Sherwood, Neely, & Jones, London, 1816. Volume 43 only, octavo. (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.

Item 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 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.

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.

Item 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).
