About this Item: London, White, Cochrane, and co., Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown; B. Crosby and co.; and Gale, Curtis, and Fenner, 1815. Two works in one. 8vo (cm). Half title, title, xx, 434 pp., folding table. [AND] London, J. White, 1799. vi, 72 pp.; 38 handcoloured, tissue-guarded engraved plates by F. Nodder. Full contemporay polished calf, spine with four raised, flat-topped bands with gilt ornaments; compartments with rich gilt vignettes and title; boards with elaborate double gilt borders, blind-tooled, gilt, and black ornamental lines; gilt inner and outer dentelles; marbled edges.l An unusually fine, complete copy of this immensely popular work, including the separately published hand-coloured plates.

About this Item: Printed for B. and J. White, 1794., London:, 1794. [half-title reads: Thirty-eight plates, with explanations; intended to illustrate Linnaeus's System of Vegetables, and particularly adapted to the letters on the elements of botany. 8vo. [vi], xxiv, 503, (1), [28] pp. With 38 finely colored engraved plates of flowers and related details, by Frederick Polydore Nodder (fl. 1770-1800); occasional spotting, upper margin waterstained. Original full dark green straight grain morocco, double gilt ruled border, flat spine with gilt title, a.e.g. Bookplate of Frank Galsworthy; signature of "Wm. Smith, 1869." With a very fine twentieth-century fore-edge painting under the gold, being a watercolor view of the Tower of London "as it was in the early part of the last [nineteenth] century." Possible provenance: Frank Galsworthy (British, born 1863). Frederick Polydore Nodder (d. 1800) was a gifted and distinguished naturalist was the Botanical Painter to her Majesty, Queen Charlotte. He exhibited at the Royal Academy. "Although a competent botanical artist, he is little known and his work remains underrated." His early skills as botanical and animal draughtsman and engraver were honed from his association with Sir Joseph Banks, who employed Nodder to complete and engrave the drawings from the sketchbooks of the late Sydney Parkinson [Banks' Florilegium]. Parkinson accompanied Banks as botanical draughtsman aboard Captain James Cook's The Endeavor in 1771. Parkinson died on the return of this South Seas Voyage. He was commissioned to engrave the plates for Erasmus Darwin's Botanic Garden (1789), Linnaeus's System of Vegetables (1788), and Thomas Martyn's Flora Rustica (1791-95), as well as the present book (1794). These engravings, along with the natural history collections of the British Museum, were the basis for the mastery of the Naturalist's Miscellany. During its production Nodder passed away and the plates were finished by his wife and son, Richard P. Nodder, a gifted animal painter in his own right, and became distinguished as botanic painter to George III. See: Dictionary of National Biography, XIV, p. 531-2. Seller Inventory # FF151
