Beschreibung der auf den Tafeln No. I und II abgebildeten Conchylien, nebst dem Verzeichniss aller derjenigen sogenannten südländischen Conchylien, die in der gesellschaftlichen Sammlung befindlich sind.

ZORN VON PLOBSHEIM, F.A. Danzig, Wedel, 1778. 4to (232 x 195mm). pp. 247-288, with 2 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorates spine, with gilt lettered red label, sides with gilt borders. Rare first edition. We offer the complete volume of the periodical 'Neue Sammlung, von Versuchen und Abhandlungen der naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Danzig'. The publication by Zorn von Plobsheim includes the first printed directory of 182 collected shells on James Cook's first and second voyage. It describes shells mainly from New Zealand, held in the collection of the Natural History Society of Danzig. The shells were acquired from the shell dealer George Humprey. Zorn was curator of the natural history collections of the Gesellschaft der Naturforschenden Freunde. "This practice of using vernacular names was continued in 1778 by Zorn von Plobsheim in a major publication of the Danzig Society in which he catalogues the shells sent by Humprey - some 59 different shells from New Zealand bear titles such as 'the Lesser or Painted mouth-zebra' and 'the wrinkled Ear from New Zealand' (Andrews. The Southern Ark, Zoological discovery in New Zealand 1769-1900, pp. 49). The 2 fine plates are by Leitner after Gedan and show shells from New Zealand, New Holland, Falklands and Straits of Magellan. The complete volume comprises pp. (12), 316 with 1 plain and 3 hand-coloured plates. Title page with old stamp and old signature of Sauer.

The Botanical Cabinet, consisting of coloured delineations of plants from all countries with a short account of each.

LODDIGES, C. London, J. & A. Arch ., 1818-1833. 20 volumes. Small-4to (205 x 155mm). With 2000 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates and 3 plain plates. Contemporary uniform half calf, richly gilt ornamented spines with gilt lettering, marbled sides (9 volumes with hinges repaired, some splits to joints but firm). A fine uniformly bound complete copy of the rare large-paper edition of one of the finest illustrated botanical series portraying numerous exotic plants. This quarto edition is much more desirable than the 8vo edition which is only partly coloured. 269 of the 2000 plates show Australian plants from New South Wales, New Holland and Botany Bay.Conrad Loddiges and Sons at Hackney owned the largest and most famous nursery in England. Charles Darwin visited the nursery in September 1838 and wrote 'saw in Loddiges garden 1279 varieties of roses !!! Proof of capability of variation!!!'. The nursery rose to great prominence during the early nineteenth century under George Loddiges (1786-1846) who publicised his collection of plants in his 'Botanical Cabinet'. The engravings are by George Cooke after drawings by George Loddiges, his daughter Jane and the young Edward Cooke, who became a leading Victorian artist. Abroad the nursery's influence spread to the imperial garden at St. Petersburg in Russia and the first Botanical Gardens at Adelaide in South Australia in 1839. Directed by John Bailey, who had started with Conrad Loddiges in 1815. It was natural, therefore, that a member of such a firm should be chosen by the Govenor of South Australia (Colonel Gawler) as Government Botanist and curator of the Botanical Gardens at Adelaide. "The Hackney Nursery of Conrad Loddiges & Sons was one of London's marvels from 1810s to 1840s. From 1817 the firm's monthly, 'The Botanical Cabinet' formed a veritable illustrated catalogue of novelties and old favourites such as Acacia melanoxylon, Crowea saligna, Templetonia retusa, Isotoma axillaris, and Lambertia formosa" (Capturing Flora, 300 years of Australian botanical art p. 110 & showing these Australian plants on pages 110 and 111).

Houtkunde, behelzende de afbeeldingen van meest alle bekende, in- en uitlandsche houten die tot den huis- en scheepsbouw. Abbildung in- und Ausländischer Höltzer./ A representation of Inland and Foreign wood./ Réprésentation des Bois, des arbes & arbrisseaux tant du Pays qu’Etrangers./ Icones Lignorum exoticorum et nostratium.

HOUTTUYN, M. Amsterdam, Jan Christiaan Sepp, 1773-1795. 4to (305 x 245mm). With engraved hand-coloured frontispiece and 106 fine hand-coloured engraved plates, each with a page of explanation. Contemporary red half morocco, richly gilt ornamented spine with green gilt lettered label, supplement unbound. A large uncut and fine copy with the very rare supplement. The most attractive book on wood ever published. It contains over 600 cross-sections of European and exotic woods and is a guide to the identification of woods by their grains and colours. Sepp based his work on Michael Seligmann's 'Abbildung in- und ausländischer Hölzer' Nuremberg 1773-78. He added 42 plates showing timbers from the West Indies, drawn from the Cabinet of Reverend Hazeu at Rotterdam. Finally Martinus Houttuyn was enlisted to describe 80 specimens of timber in his own collection, then to prepare notes and indexes in five languages and a supplement. As the book was issued in parts, whenever a suite of plates had been engraved and coloured, copies are found in varying degrees of completeness. The text is in Dutch, English, German, French and Latin. As the book was published over a long period complete copies as the present one are a great rarity. The final title 'Houtkunde, behelzende afbeeldingen van meest alle bekende, in- en uitlandsche houten die tot den huis- en scheepsbouw.' published in 1791 is different from the one published in 1773 when the work started 'Afbeelding van In- en Uitlandsche houten, zo wel van boomen als heesters.'. For this reason the work is sometimes quoted under this title. Landwehr, Studies in Dutch books with coloured plates, gives a detailed collation of the work, which matches exactly with our copy. The complete English title is: 'A representation of inland and foreign wood, as well trees and shrubs, which are collected by lovers of natural history in their cabinets of natural curiosities for use and pleasure. According to their inward properties and natural colours'.The rare supplement, with a printed title has some slight staining at the outer upper and lower corner of the printed title.Nissen BBI, 939, Landwehr 84; Pritzel 4291.

STERBEECK, F. VAN. Antwerpen, J. Jacops, 1682. 4to (210 x 160mm). pp. (xl), 1-74, (2), 75-296 (26), with engraved frontispiece, engraved coat-of-arms on inserted leaf after title, and 14 folding engraved plates. Contemporary calf, gilt ornamented spine with gilt lettering in 5 compartments (a bit rubbed). First edition of Sterbeeck's rare treatise on the culture of citrus fruit in the Low Countries. 'Van Sterbeeck was a Jesuit priest. His book about citrus fruit and other exotic plants starts with five congratulatory poems, some in Flemish, some in Latin, all by various local worthies praising their friend for his achievement. The extra leaf between pages 74 and 75 contains another poem, in couplets, called "Weeninge van Adam", a lament for Eden, following a chapter of speculation on the identity of Adam's apple, the forbidden fruit - an apple, a fig, or even a banana? A lengthy bibliography and list of contents follow before the main text, a first part on oranges, a second on citrons and grapefruit, a third on lemons, and a fourth on exotic trees, grafting, and pests. The last section deals with pomegranates, passionflowers, laurels, cinnamon, and the oleander. The part of the book on the management of exotic trees, indoors in winter or out of doors in summers, describes how to keep them happy in tubs or pots, and even how to cope with insects, mice, or rats in greenhouses. The whole book is dedicated to Justus de Nobelaer, Knight, whose palatial greenhouse is described on page 167, where Commelin's is also mentioned' (Sandra Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona pp. 186-7). It is De Nobelaer's arms which appear on the engraved plate, and he may have borne some of the expense of publication. Raphael also notes that Sterbeeck records in his preface that he lent his notes to his friend Jan Commelin, who made use of them for his 'Nederlantze Hesperides', which appeared in 1676; he mentions this fact in order that the readers don't suspect him of plagiarising the earlier work.The Oak Spring copy contains a portrait, which is not mentioned in the collations given in Nissen, Stafleu, and Hunt, but was certainly issued in at least some of the copies. The frontispiece was designed by Charles Emmanuel Biset and engraved by Frans Ertinger, who also signed the coat-of-arms plate. Sterbeeck (1630-93) was an Antwerp-born priest and botanist; he also wrote the earliest work solely devoted to fungi, 'Theatrum fungorum', 1675. Frontispiece with tiny old marginal paper repair not touching the illustration.Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Jean Nicolas Georges Bockenhemer.Hunt 365; Nissen BBI, 1893; Raphael, An Oakspring Pomona, 70; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 13013.
Champignons des environs de Blois.

Champignons des environs de Blois.

SÉJOURNÉ, A. Blois circa 1880. 2 volumes. Folio (360 x 270mm). A collection of 161 very fine watercolours of mushrooms of the Blois area (Loire valley). Loose in 2 contemporary red half calf bindings, spines with gilt lines and the following lettering Champignons *1* A. Séjourné and Champignons *2* A. Séjourné. A unique and well preserved collection of highly finished watercolours of the fungi of the Loire valley and of great scientific interest. The first album contains 100 highly finished drawings. At the head of each drawing (with the exception of 11 drawings) the following is written in pen 'Champignons des environs de Blois A. Séjourné' and at the foot of the drawing the Latin name is mentioned as well as the exact location, for example 'Forêt de Blois' or 'Sous les peuplier des Ponts Chartrains comestible'. Of the other 11 drawings 4 have no text, the others have the text written in pencil.The second volume contains 61 watercolours as well as one photo. 10 of these have no text. The quality of the drawings is exceptionally fine and scientifically accurate. Abbé A. Séjourné was born at Herbault 1843 and died 1900 at Blois. E. Boudier the famous French mycologist wrote the following necrology about him in the Bull. de la Societé Botanique de France in 1900."Né à Herbault en 1813, il est mort à Blois, le 1 novembre dernier (1900), sans avoir jamais quitté son département Il fit ses études au Petit et au Grand Séminaire de Blois et montra beaucoup de goût pour la musique, le dessin et les sciences naturelles Il aimait surtout la botanique et on lui doit la découverte de nombreuses localités de plantes rares dans son département, stations citées en grande partie dans la Flore de Loir-et-Cher de M. Franchet, son ami En relations avec tous les botanistes de son département, l'abbé Séjourné était membre de la Société botanique de France depuis un certain nombre d'années, de la Société mycologique et de quelques autres Sociétés. Il aimait à s'occuper, en la saison, de Champignons et en avait dessiné un certain nombre. D'un caractère aimable et enjoué, il était très estimé " The plates are numbered 1 to 162 at the right upper corner.

All first editions, especially his publication "Kalchartiges Bergmeel " is a great rarity.Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) was a Bavarian clergyman-naturalist, a phenomenon so characteristic of the age of Enlightenment. His interest was broad and apart from publishing the most beautiful early iconography on fungi he published on birds, entomology and paper-making, however most of his works describe the fauna and flora of South Germany.

JABLONSKY, C.G. & HERBST, J.F.W. Berlin, J. Pauli, 1785-1790. Volumes 1-3 (of 10). 8vo (195 x 120mm). With 1 engraved hand-coloured frontispiece and 3 hand-coloured title-vignettes and 39 hand-coloured folded engraved plates. Later half cloth, gilt lettered spines (vols. 1-2) & contemporary calf, gilt lettered spine. The first 3 volumes of one of the most attractive early works on coleoptera, lacking volumes 4-10. First and only edition of this superbly illustrated work on exotic and European coleoptera. Carl Gustav Jablonsky was private secretary to the Queen of Prussia. After Jablonsky's untimely death Herbst edited the work from volume 2 on. A great number of the plates were drawn by Jablonsky. The work should be considered a first attempt to a total survey of the coleoptera. A sequel was published to the above work dealing with butterflies. "The Frenchmen were however preceded in their illustrated compilation of the Cook voyage entomology by Johann Herbst in Berlin, whose illustrated monographs on beetles (Natursystem der Käfer) were published between 1783 and 1795. Although he may have visited London, it is more likely that Herbst saw duplicates given to Fabricius by Banks and taken by the former to Kiel, which is relatively more accessible from Berlin. His illustrations of New Zealand insects are the earliest published" (Andrews, The Southern Ark p. 45). Andrews quotes the wrong dates of publication.Nissen ZBI, 2078; Junk, Rara I, 10.

STERBEECK, F. VAN. Antwerpen, Joseph Jacobs, 1675. 4to (200 x 155mm). pp. (38), 396, (20), with engraved frontispiece, 1 folded engraved portrait and 36 (many folded) engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spine in 5 compartments (splits to upper joints, but firm). Scarce first edition, a reissue appeared 1712. "First edition of the first separate general work on fungi, describing edible and poisonous varieties. L'Escluse has done a study called 'Fungorum in Pannonis Observatorum Historia' which was first published as part of his 'Rariorum Plantarum Historia', 1601. However, according to Nissen, L'Escluse's original manuscript for this treatise with its eighty-seven original drawings had been lost by the publisher, so they had to use other illustrations for the 1611 edition, and these were quite inaccurate. Afterwards the lost manuscript reappeared and Sterbeeck used it as a basis for his work, adding much new material of his own" (Hunt 341)."Frans van Sterbeeck, a Flemish priest of noble extraction, was born and died in Antwerp where he lived for the greater part of his life. During the eight years following his ordination in 1655, while suffering from a chronic illness, he returned his attention to botany, with particular reference to fungi and soon became a recognized expert. He was on friendly terms with other Flemish botanists and in May 1663 was visited by John Ray who admired the rare plants in van Sterbeeck's garden. It was in 1672 that Adriaan David, an Antwerp pharmacist and amateur botanist (he contributed a sonnet to the collection of adulatory tributes to the author which prefaces the 'Theatrum fungorum'), took the celebrated 'Code de l'Éscluse' (then owned by Dr. Syen, professor of botany at Leiden University) to van Sterbeeck who made considerable, if somewhat surreptitious, use of it as a source of illustrations for ther 'Theatrum fungorum' in which he claimed to have based all but a few figures on direct observation from nature" (Ainsworth, Introduction to the history of mycology pp 48-49). The manuscript was lost again for a period of 2 hundred years and is now in the Leiden University library.The elaborate frontispiece shows baskets full of mushrooms and in the middle of a crowd most probably van Sterbeeck picking a mushroom out of a basket.Very clear and strong impressions of the plates.Hunt 341; Nissen BBI, 1892.; Hortus Belgicus 34.

Entomologie, ou histoire naturelle des Insectes, avec leurs caractères génériques et spécifiques, leur description, leur synonymie et leur figure enluminée. COLÉOPTÈRES.

OLIVIER, G.A. Paris, Baudouin/ Lanneau, 1789-1795. Volumes 1-3 (of 6). Large-4to (297 x 240mm). With 1 colour-printed engraved frontispiece and 190 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lettered labels and gilt lines. The first 3 volumes of this scarce work. The complete work has 6 volumes with 362 plates. Its fine plates, depicting thousands of various species of Coleoptera, are by J. Audebert, J.L. Reinold and Meunier, and engraved by Copia, Desfontaines, Manceau, Sellier and F.L. Swebach. Guillaume Antoine Olivier (1756-1814) was one of the greatest of the early French naturalists and an entomologist of high standing. He was a close friend of J.C. Fabricius and a patron of P.A. Latreille. His large collection of beetles (now for the larger part in the Museum at Paris), gathered on journeys through European & Asiatic Turkey, Asia Minor, Persia, Egypt, and various Mediterranean Islands, is described in his famous work, by which he became nationally known as a great entomologist. Australian and New Zealand insects from the Banks collection are likewise described as well as some American insects."He was working on his 'Entomologie, ou histoire naturelle des insects ' a multi-volume treatise being prepared under the patronage of the wealthy Jean-Baptiste Gigot d'Orcy, himself an entomologist and his 'Entomologie ' contained references to New Zealand insects, and he was able to illustrate the latter with Banks's insects seen at first hand" (Andrews, The Southern Ark, zoological discovery in New Zealand 1769-1900 p. 45). See also D. Miller, Bibliography of New Zealand Entomology 1775-1952 p. 272 and A. Musgrave, Bibliography of Australian Entomology 1775-1930 p. 243. "Olivier added some 87 new species of American insects " (Essig, A history of Entomology p. 721). The complete work comprises 100 different sections.

ROESEL VAN ROSENHOF, A.J. Volgens eigen ondervinding beschreeven . Met zeer nutte en fraaie Aanmerkingen verrykt, door C.F. Kleemann. Uit den echten Hoogduitschen Druk . vertaald. Haarlem en Amsterdam, C.H. Bohn en H. de Wit, (1764-1788). 4 volumes (bound in 8) and supplement. Large-4to (275 x 220mm). With 3 handcoloured engraved frontispieces, 1 engraved portrait of Rösel and 385 handcoloured engraved plates (printed on 314 leaves). Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lines and red and brown gilt lettered labels, marbled sides. A nice uniformly bound copy, including the rare supplement. This Dutch edition is more attractive than the original German edition, which was published in Nuremberg from 1746-1792. The Dutch edition is printed on almost twice as large, much thicker, paper, and has far better colouring. The translation was made by C. Kleemann, the son-in-law of the author. He added new material and the excellent colouring of the plates is by him and his wife Katharina Barbara Roesel von Rosenhof."Roesel, who studied at first with his father and then with his uncle Wilhelm, an animal painter in Merseburg, later became a pupil of the famous Preisler in Nuremberg. After living in Copenhagen from 1726 to 1728 he returned to Nuremberg for good, and there, besides painting portraits and drawings, he applied himself in particular to the study of nature. He collected insects, their eggs and larvae, studied the process of hatching, pupation, and emergence, and painted all this in a most meticulous way, as Kleeman tells us. His manuscripts, with 406 illustrations, are now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Roesel also made the engravings of his drawings ." (Nissen, 'Bestiaries').The extremely rare supplement contains 240 pages and 26 plates. Landwehr mentions 3 states of the supplement with at most 192 pages and 26 plates. No title to the supplement was published. Volume II part 1 with some slight staining towards the end.Nissen ZBI, 3467; Landwehr, Studies in Dutch books with coloured plates, 161.
Papillons d'Europe

Papillons d’Europe, peints d’après nature par M. Ernst, gravé par M. Gerardin et coloriés sous leur direction . Décrits par le R.P. Engramelle.

ENGRAMELLE, M.D.J. Paris, Delaguette/ Basan & Poignant, 1779-1792 (-1793). 8 volumes, bound in 4. Large-4to (295 x 235mm). With 3 (2 hand-coloured) engraved frontispieces, and 353 engraved plates of which 350 are beautifully hand-coloured. Contemporary full red morocco, sides with gilt border, richly gilt decorated spines in 6 compartments, gilt edges and inside dentelles (one volume ends of spine a bit worn). A splendidly bound copy of the most sumptuously produced French work on butterflies. It was issued in an edition of 250 copies only, and the subscribers were the French King, members of the Royal Family, the King of Spain and Sweden as well as a great number of notabilities and scientists such as the Duc d'Aumont and le Compte de Buffon. The text is by Engramelle (1727-1781) an Augustinian friar, musician and naturalist. Ernst is mentionned as illustrator, however, from 1785, it was Maria Eleon Hochecker who prepared most of the plates. The 3 plain plates show instruments for catching and mounting butterflies. The charming frontispieces and plates are superbly hand-coloured and belong to the very best made in the field of entomological illustration."The 'Papillons d'Europe', one of the most ambitious entomological publications of the eighteenth century began to appear in Paris 1779. Included in the impressive list of subscribers were the King and other members of the French Royal Family. Ten years later, as the French Revolution gathered momentum, instalments of the 'Papillons d'Europe' continued to appear. Even when the Terror was reducing the ranks of the people who might buy expensive publications about natural history, further instalments appeared for sale in the Paris bookshops. Publication ended in 1793, after more than 350 plates had been issued. How a publisher could have continued to publish such a book throughout these terrible years is something of a mystery. It is known that a stock of some of the plates was not distributed, presumably because some of the subscribers had lost interest in the publication after a visit to the guillotine. The high quality of the plates of the hand coloured engravings is well seen "(S.D. Dance & E.G. Hancock. Butterflies, moths and other insects p. 52). Occasional light browning to text, the plates being printed on thicker paper are not affected and in very fine condition.Nissen, ZBI 1300; Horn-Schenkling 6051.
