Item Description: Vilquin, Paris, 1805. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte. An exquisite plate of a spray of orange blossom and two yellow chrysanthemums from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest". Contemporary with the work of Redouté, 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits' is one of the earliest examples of stipple engraved and colour-printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of 4 plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season. The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended as a true reflection of the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits'. Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest.issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorne, p. 33). Cf. Dunthorne p. 229; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Nissen BBI 1568; cf. Pritzel 7332; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8319. Bookseller Inventory # 4422

Item Description: No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. Jean Louis Prevost (1760-1810) Illustrated plate from Des Fleurs et des Fruits, Peints d'apres Nature (Collection of Flowers and Fruits, Painted after Nature) Paris: 1804-06 Hand-colored stipple engraving 13” x 20”, 20” x 27” framed Jean Louis Prevost was a successful and widely renowned flower painter, respected both for his watercolor and engraved works. A pupil of the artist Jean Jacques Bachelier (1724-1806) in Paris, he became a member of the Academie de Saint Luc and presented numerous still-lives at the Salons, the last recorded entry being 1810. His paintings were consistently exhibited in the Paris Salon, and his original watercolors served as models for a series of exquisite color plate botanical books. His Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits is one of the greatest French botanical books of the early 19th century. Unlike Redoute, his great contemporary, Prevost’s intention with his works was not primarily scientific. His great Collection. was intended as a reference work for china and fabric pattern designers. The strong composition indicates his aesthetic concerns, while the delicate, detailed and highly accurate depiction of each fruit also exemplifies the artist’s exceptional rendering skill. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of etching a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that can be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color and tone. The plates were painted with watercolor before each impression, creating a rich and subtle color quality that is deeply pressed into the paper. The most delicate highlights and details are then added by hand to finish each print according to the original watercolor that Prevost provided. This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterizes this great age of French botanical works. Bookseller Inventory # A00923c

Item Description: Chez Vilquin, Paris, 1805. Folio (21 x 14 inches). 48 stipple-engraved plates printed in color and finished by hand, by Louis Charles Ruotte (one by Chapponnier) after drawings by Prevost of flowers and fruit (some light spotting). Contemporary French half red morocco, speckled paper boards, uncut (extremities scuffed). First edition, bound from the original parts. One of the earliest examples of stipple-engraving used to create a grainy effect with a series of dots or flecks using a finely-toothed "roulette" or wheel. Jean Louis Prevost was a successful and widely renowned flower painter, respected both for his watercolor and oil paintings and for his engraved works. His paintings were consistently exhibited in the Paris Salon, and his original watercolors served as models for a series of exquisite color plate botanical books. His "Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits" is one of the greatest French flower books of the early nineteenth century. Unlike Redoute, his great contemporary, Prevost's intention with his works was not primarily scientific. His great Collection . . . was intended as a reference work for china and fabric pattern designers. Though not primarily a botanist, all of Prevost's works were based on careful observation of specimens. Dunthorne 229; "Great Flower Books", p.71; Nissen 1568; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8319.
