About this Item

Inscribed by the Author Delondre, Auguste & Bouchardat, Apollinaire (1806-86). Quinologie: Des quinquinas. . . . 4to. [4] 48pp. 23 hand-colored lithographed plates (each with tissue guard), double-page hand-colored engraved map. Paris: Germer Baillière, 1854. 340 x 257 mm. Marbled boards, cloth backstrip c. 1854, somewhat rubbed & faded, small splits in front hinge. Minor foxing, but very good. Inscribed by Delondre on the flyleaf: "à Monsieur Dublanc Membre de l'Académie Impériale de Médecine &c. &c. / Souvenir bien affectueux / Graville-Havre 8 novb. 1856 / Auguste Delondre." First Edition. "This work contains twenty-three good coloured plates, exhibiting all the barks then met with in commerce" (Flückiger & Hanbury, quoted in Waring, p. 355). Delondre, a pharmacist and quinine manufacturer, was interested in both the scientific and commercial aspects of quinine; his book illustrates and describes 33 different varieties of both true and false cinchona from the mountainous regions of South America, which at the time were the sole source of cinchona bark. Drug manufacturers continue to extract quinine from cinchona even today, as it is not commercially feasible to synthesize it in the laboratory. Bookseller Inventory # 34516
