      Vienne: Jean Cappi, Sur la Place St Michel No. 5 [PN] 880. [March 1802]. Oblong folio. Contemporary stencilled wrapper with decorative cut-paper label with titling in manuscript to upper. [1] (title), 2-19, [1] (blank) pp. Engraved. Corrections of accidentals and further annotations in pencil in unknown hands (pp. 3, 6, 10, 15, 18).& & Some minor paper imperfections including small hole to p. 7/8; lower wrapper lacking.& & A very good copy overall. . First edition, possibly an unrecorded first issue.& & Kinsky (pp. 63-64) describes the earliest issue as carrying the words "Composé ed dedié" not "Composée et dediée," but Dorfmüller (p. 304) doubts that any copies with "Composé et dedié" were ever published as no such examples have been located. If Dorfmüller is correct, the present copy is likely an unrecorded first issue. Moreover, the correction in pencil to p. 3 (the addition of a natural before d in m. 14 of Variation 1, left hand) seems to originate with a proofreader, suggesting that the present copy predates other known copies; this correction (the natural) appears engraved in other copies of the same edition (see Hoboken 2, 134).& & Possibly the earliest extant copy.

        Gladiolus Undulatus / Glayeul Undulé [Profusely-flowering Gladiolus]

      Imprimerie de Didot jeune, Paris 1802 - Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by de Gouy. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Liliacées from which this work comes. Les Liliacées is one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses . These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment. Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf.Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana, 10.
