Wolfe, JACOB BIGELOW'S AMERICAN MEDICAL BOTANY (1979), passim. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 10. The first American book with color-printing, and also a foundation work in American botanical studies, notable for its fine plates. Bigelow, a native of Massachusetts, attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, where he became keenly interested in botany as a student of Benjamin Smith Barton, then a professor of materia medica as well as the leading botanist in the United States. Following his graduation in 1810 he entered private practice in Boston, and himself became a professor of materia medica, at Harvard Medical School, in 1815. His botanizing had already produced his FLORULA BOSTONIENSIS in 1814, and once installed at Harvard he began work on this, his best known publication. According to Bigelow's own later account, he at first intended to produce the plates for his work by printing engravings and having them hand-colored. He decided that this would be too expensive, since he envisioned an edition of 1000 copies with sixy plates each. Ultimately, he printed the plates using aquatint, with the ink applied to the plates "a la poupee," a method by which the different color inks are daubed onto the printing plates with a piece of cloth. Richard Wolfe, in his book on Bigelow, asserts that a process of creating plates by etching stone was used, but recent work by Philip Weimerskirch and others has established that the aquatint process was used, and in fact Bigelow has left us a very specific account of the book's production. Up to this time no one had printed pl. Bookseller Inventory #
