About this Item

Pp. (4), x, 116 + 17 full-page lithographic plates - 13 are hand-colored, 2 full-page photo-plates. Original full green textured cloth with elaborate gilt plant on the center front board with title above and below the plant, gilt title on spine, large folio (20.5 x 15 inches). This rare work documents the cultivation of quinine producing trees. These trees were introduced into India from the Andes by Markham and Spruce. John Eliot Howard undertook microscopical observations of the bark of all forms of cinchona to find which would be best to use as a malarial preventative. The work featured 3 hand-colored plates with cross-sections of bark and 10 spectacular hand-colored plates of the quinine-producing trees and flowers. This volume has been collated complete by H. Bernard Quaritch of London and bears his signature on the rear endpaper. See Nissen, BBI, 943. Bottom front outer corner with small bump, faint edge to cloth, the last two black-and-white plates have a small (3/4 inch high) marginal minor damp stains that do not touch the image; a bright, clean, very good to near fine copy.
