WATSON (James)
Edinburgh: Printed by James Watson, 1713. First edition, small 8vo, 24, xlviii, 64pp., title in red and black, folding plate of wood engraved ornaments (tear repaired with no loss, further tear along fold with no loss), typographical specimens in the text, nineteenth-century blue morocco by H. Faulkner, George Court, Adelphi, with his ticket, blind-stamped roll border and gilt fillet to sides, g.e., A nice copy of this most important book, which is not only a history of printing but also a type specimen. James Watson (1664?-1722) was the son of an Aberdeen merchant who advanced money to two Dutch printers to set up a printing house in Edinburgh; the business failed and it reverted to the elder Watson, who continued the business until his death in 1687. The younger Watson set up as a printer in 1695 and went on to become one of the foremost printers in Edinburgh during the first half of the seventeenth-century. The volume is divided into three parts. The first is an history of Scottish printing to which Bigmore & Wyman remark "it contains some interesting and useful information on Scotch Printing not found elsewhere." The second part is a fine 48 page specimen of types of a Dutch origin and is the earliest such Scottish specimen of types. The third part is a survey of fifteenth-century printing and is one of the earliest accounts of the origins of printing in the English language. "it happens to be rare, and, therefore, bibliomaniacs hunt after it." So writes Dr. Dibdin ("Bibliomania," p.69) in his usual superficial style. He is right so far as rarity goes, for it is a volum … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESLER, Basil (1561-1629)
Eichstatt 1713 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Hand-coloured engraving.

BESLER, Basilius].
Nuremburg 1713 - Copper-engraving, with fine hand colour. Dimensions: 525 by 420mm. (20.75 by 16.75 inches). A magnificent plate from "Hortus Eystettensis", one of the earliest and most famous works in the field. The Hortus Eystettensis is a pictorial record of the flowers grown in the greatest German garden of its time, that of Prince Bishop of Eichstatt, Johann Conrad von Gemmingen. The garden was begun by Joachim Camerarius in 1596 and, after his death in 1598, completed by Basil Besler, a pharmacist from Nuremberg. A visitor, Philipp Hainhofer, in 1611 marvelled at the eight gardens, each containing 'flowers from a different country; they varied in the beds and flowers, especially in the beautiful roses, lilies, tulips.' The Hortus records this variety and beauty. The book is exceptional in every sense; in its variety and range of flowers, in its size, in its fine quality of engraving. It is also one of the earliest records of flowers from a specific, documented garden. Besler was asked to complete the work by Gemmingen in 1606; the huge nature of the task was clear to Besler and he enlisted the help of his younger brother Hieronymus and Ludwig Jungermann, a nephew of Camerarius. Printing the Hortus may have begun as early as 1607. Drawings were made in situ and from specimens sent by the Bishop to Nuremberg; the Bishop reported to Hainhofer that he had boxes of fresh flowers sent every week to Besler at Nuremberg for sketching. A team of at least 10 engravers were employed to translate the drawings to copperplates. The gardens, along with most of the town of Eichstatt, … [Click Below for Full Description]
