About this Item

8vo. (16.4 x 10 cm) Bound in 17th century vellum with period endpapers. Collation: viii [16], 1-520 p. (p.387/388 supplied in facsimile). Includes 519 woodblock prints. Small circular institutional stamp (Maison de Poesis Fondation Blemont) on title page and several other pages, ca. 3 more. All 517 woodcuts have images with early coloring, many of the roots left uncolored. The plants depicted on facsimile pages in modern color. Text and plates generally good with occasional foxing spot. There was some tight trimming when the book was rebound that shaves close to text at the fore edge of several pages without apparent loss. This is a very rare copy made even more so with any coloring of woodcut images. Each page has a woodblock of the plant toward the gutter and text at the fore edge. However, because of prior trimming portions of letters on the fore edge are slightly affected. The text, however, is present and readable. There is ink marginalia in Index (iiii) which corrects errors in assigned pages for several plants and corrections of page numbers for p. 330, 331, 334, 335, 340, 348, 349, and 352. Three plants (517,518,519) not depicted in any of the Basel editions. This is only 8vo. Illustrated edition with a French translation with format of "three additional plants and much-abridged text (placed in the margins next to the figures) dealing with the medicinal properties (extraict de leurs vertuz) of the plants." (Meyer). Only two libraries listed in OCLC holding this title. Bookseller Inventory # 000018
