About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Plantes rares du Jardin de Genève by CANDOLLE, Augustin Pyramus de (1778-1841).

Description:

(14 1/4 x 11 inches). Half-title. 24 stipple-engraved plates, printed in colours and finished by hand, by Heyland (6), Anspach (5), Millenet (11), Bovet (1) and Bouvier (1), after Heyland (22) and Madmoiselle Car. Chuit (2), printed by Tattegrain (18) or Suardet (6). Stitched and uncut. Housed in a modern full green morocco box. A fine uncut, never bound copy of an important and rare record of the trees, shrubs and plants growing in the botanical gardens of Geneva under the directorship of de Candolle. The work recalls the early days of the Geneva Botanic Garden, which after a number of false starts, was finally laid out in 1818. The images include two excellent plates of the Pin des Canaries (Pinus canariensis), a native of Teneriffe and Grand Canary; a single plate of a Cherry (Cerasus caproniana polygyna) showing a flowering branch, details of the flowers and depictions of the extraordinary multi-lobed fruits; the final plate is a fine compostion showing a flowering branch of pink-flowered form of a Horse-Chestnut (Æsculus rubicunda) which de Candolle supposes to have originated in the United States. According to the introduction, the plates were chosen from a collection of about 300 botanical drawings executed by various artists and given to the Botanical Garden by generous benefactors, all but two of the present plates are from original drawings by Jean Christophe Heyland (1792-1866), a German-born botanical artist who spent all of his working life in Switzerland. The original intention had been to continue to publish plates (with their descriptions) periodically. The present work was originally published in four fascicules between 1825 and 1826 or 1827; when it became clear that no more fascicules would appear, the present second issue was published, with the title dated 1829.
