        Aloe Americana...N. 63

      Regensburg: H. Lentz and H.G. Neubauer. First. unbound. very good. Botanical. Color mezzotint with hand coloring. Page measures 16.25" x 10.5". Beautiful aloe print in an urn from the four-volume study of flowers and plants, "Phytanthoza Iconographia" edited by Johann Weinmann between 1737 and 1745. Both accurate and beautiful, these prints were the first botanical color mezzotints, a revolutionary method that allowed for subtlety and detail. Weinmann (1683-1741) was a renowned pharmicist whose plant studies earned him scientific acclaim among botanists. He employed several botanical artists and engravers to assist with the project including Bartholomäus Seuter, Johann Ridinger, Johann Jakob Haid and most notably Georg Dionysus Ehret. Weinmann was the first to publish drawings by Ehret, but after a dispute over payment, gave him no credit. Ehret later became a dominant figure in the botanical world under the patronage of Dr. Jakob Trew. Faint stain along top edge. Slight wrinkle to right edge, original. Pin holes along left edge from original binding. Full original margins. Please visit our gallery for more Weinmann prints.

        La Verità senza velo circa il buon governo dello Stato d'un sovrano, dedicata con tutta l'umiltà all Altezza Serenisssima Elettorale di Clemente Augusto arcivescovo di Colonia [Clemens August de Wittelsbach] (.).

      Vérone, Dionisio Ramanzini 1737 - in-4, [5] ff. n. ch. (faux-titre et titre, dédicace), 382 pp., avec un frontispice allégorique gravé par P. Wyon, cartonnage crème souple modeste, dos lisse (reliure de l'époque). Exemplaire un peu déboîté, plats salis. Demeuré anonyme, ce Traité du bon gouvernement dédié à Clément-Auguste de Bavière (1700-1761), qui devint archevêque-électeur de Cologne à la mort de son oncle Joseph-Clément en 1723, semble idéalement fait pour le prince fastueux et énergique, qui, les yeux rivés vers le modèle de Versailles, mena dans son Electorat ecclésiastique une politique éclairée, tant extérieure qu'intérieure, tant séculière que spirituelle. La date de parution n'est peut-être pas sans rapport avec la mort de son ancien ministre Wilhelm Ferdinand von Plettenberg, survenue en mars 1737 : l'homme avait été disgracié en 1733, par suite d'une intrigue de Cour, et s'était réfugié à Vienne, mais il conservait un parti dans les Etats de l'archevêque, un parti pro-autrichien (après son renvoi, l'Electeur s'était orienté vers l'alliance française). Un seul exemplaire au CCF (BnF). Exemplaire du "comte de Tauffkürch", avec ex-libris manuscrit au titre, en lequel il faut sans doute reconnaître Adam Johann Joseph Anton, comte de Tauffkirchen (1693-1758), dont le domaine s'étandait à côté de Munich.

        Flora Lapponica exhibens Plantas per Lapponiam Crescentes, secundam Systema Sexuale Collectas in Itinere... Additis Synonymis, & Locis Natalibus Omnium, Descriptionibus & Figuris Rariorum, Viribus Medicatis & Occonomicis Plurimarum.

      Amsterdam, Salomonem Schouten, 1737. 8vo. Bound in a fine later (around 1900) red hcalf with raisd bands, titlelabel in leather with gilt lettering. Compartments profusely gilt (G. Hedberg, Stockholm). Marbled top-edge, otherwise UNCUT throughout. Engraved frontispiece. Titlepage in red/black. (40),372,(38) pp. and 12 folded engraved plates. A few scattered brownspots. A copy printed on good paper.. Scarce first edition of greatest importence as it is one of the first works in which Linné worked out his binomial nomenclature, and of "prime importance for the nomenclature of Arctic-Alpine species".Linnaeus set out from Uppsala on his journey into Lapland on 12 May 1732, and returned to Uppsala on 10 October, after adventures in snow and sleet and among 'novelties in all three kingdoms of nature', including many new plants. All this he recorded in diary and catalogue... Linnaeus worked on the present volume during his sojourn in Leyden and at the Clifford estate at Hartecamp in Holland. A Society was formed at Amsterdam to defray the expenses of the plates.., and the 'Flora Lapponica' came forth in 1737, just ahead of the 'Geneve plantarum' and the 'Hortus Cliffortianus'. Botanists had waited for it expectantly, and they received it with accaim. (Hunt No. 502)."The journey was the most adventurous that Linnaeus ever made; it has been assessed by his fellow-countrymen as the most fruitful single scientific expedition ever made in Sweden both for its immediate botanical results and its influence on Linnaeus's later career. It led to the publication in 1737 of his Flora Lapponica which is of prime importance for the nomenclature of Arctic-Alpine species; Linnaeus's Lapland specimens, on which this was based, are in Paris." (The Linnaean Correspondance).Hulth: p. 21 - Soulsby: No. 279
