        Caryophyllus, General Clayton

      Nuremberg 1764 - The “Hortus Nitidissimis Omnem Per Annum Superbiens Floribus Sive Amoenissimorum Florum Imagines” was published between 1750 and 1786 as a periodical intended, when collected, to form an unmatched collection of botanical prints. The engravings are based on the drawings collected from various artists by the famous Nuremberg physician and amateur botanist Christopher Jacob Trew. Although the plates were produced using engraving techniques common to the period, each plate was completed individually through hand coloring. The variations in plates between different known volumes indicates that more than one artist was involved in this process. These variations render every volume of the work unique. Trew’s good friend Georg Dionysius Ehret, considered the most important and influential botanical artist of the mid-18th century, was a chief artist of this endeavor. Ehret was born to farmers in Heidelberg, Germany in 1708, and showed an early propensity for drawing. As a young man he was employed primarily as a gardener and he used his time spent gardening to examine and practice drawing botanicals and the natural world around him. Eventually his art attracted the attention of Dr. Trew who gave Ehret financial patronage and with whom he worked on the Hortus Nitidissimis as well as Plantae Selectae. These botanical engravings are considered the finest records of cultivated flowers of the time and are noted as being precisely engraved and exquisitely colored. This hand colored engraving, Caryophyllus, 20” x 14”, is in excellent condition with a slight stain on the top right edge. Caryophyllus is a type of herbaceous perennial plant commonly called the carnation. This engraving of the blooming flower is expertly colored and highlighted in crimson gray and white. The delicate stem is also detailed and dynamically colored.

        An Accurate map of Buckingham Shire, divided into its Hundreds

      London: , c 1764. Mounted size: 885 × 705 mm. Copperplate engraving with original hand colour. Slight creasing to the central fold, otherwise in very good condition. A wonderfully precise, detailed and informative large map of Buckinghamshire; from 'The Large English Atlas' ; arguably the finest English atlas produced in the eighteenth century. Emanuel Bowen and Thomas Kitchin were prolific and highly respected cartographers, however, this collaboration was not without its difficulties; ownership of the particular project changed many times, therefore the maps are found to have various imprints. This map carries the imprint of Robert Sayer, John Bowles and Carrington Bowles. In addition to being on a grand scale, the maps carry a wealth of valuable county information concerning the Seats of the Nobility, geographical and political information, and major market towns and cities.

Binding is sound, text and plates quite clean, with the exception of some foxing to the first plate/frontispiece. Simple bookplate of Mr. Alexander Mackenzie on front pastedown. Baker (1698-1774) established his name as a scientific writer with the publication of The Microscope Made Easy (1742). "Written for the novice, it was divided into two parts, the first describing various types of microscope, how best to use each, and how to prepare specimens, while the second part was concerned with the examination of various natural objects, such as the flea, hairs, and pollen….Eleven years after the publication of what proved to be a best-seller, Baker published Employment for the Microscope (1753), [which] repeated the success of its predecessor. Also written for a popular audience, Employment described Baker's own microscopical discoveries…. [His] most important scientific study, for which he received the Copley medal of the Royal Society in 1744, concerned his observation under the microscope of crystal morphology, [which comprises the] first part of Employment for the Microscope" (DNB).
