About this Item: 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. Catalogued by Kate Hunter. Seller Inventory # 001807
