Item Description: ex officina Krausiana, typis J. Gerold (Vol. I), M. A. Schmidt (Vol. II) 1778-1781, Vienna, 1778. Book Condition: Very Good+. First (and Only) Edition. Contemporary Austrian or German half calf, slight variation to decoration of spine, and varying marbled boards, spines gilt panelled, tan calf lettering-pieces; 4to (237 and 234 x 182 mm), 2 volumes; pages untrimmed and almost entirely unopened, with 44 hand-colored engraved plates (5 folding), of plants, plant parts, lichen, one of butterflies and scarabs, by Jakob Adams, probably after the drawings of the various contributors, woodcut title vignettes, head- and tail-pieces. Boards lightly rubbed; corners gently bumped; some light worming at spine tips of Volume II. Textblocks a little foxed; folding plate 20 in Volume I with short marinal tear at fold. An excellent set. Provenance: Unidentified bookplate, a modern copy of Hilprand Brandenburg's bookplate of an angel holding shield; Robert de Belder (his sale, Sotheby's London, 27 April 1987, lot 174); An Important Botanical Library (part I, Christie's New York, 4 June 1997, lot 75). Like its successor, Jacquin's "Collectanea," this semi-periodical publication contains articles by Jacquin and his friends and colleagues, the most important being probably Franz Xavier von Wulfen's "Plantae Rariories Carinthiacae" in Volume II. Similar to the Plesch copy and unlike the Hunt copy, the text paper of this copy is unwatermarked, and the plates are printed on paper watermarked with a shield with fleur-de-lys, countermarked C. & J. Honig. Hunt 655 (imperfect); Nissen BBI 975; Pritzel 4367; Stafleu & Cowan 3248. Bookseller Inventory # D7145
