Excellent. John Bonn, London; 1832; Half calf and cloth. Stunning edition of the 1832 MEDICAL BOTANY: with plates of all the medicinal plants The botanical descriptions arranged and corrected by Dr. William Jackson Hooker. The new medico-botanical portion supplied by G. Spratt. The third and most complete edition of Woodville's classic work: Five volumes, including the first printing of the supplemental fifth volume, which was limited to 200 copies and sold separately. Illustrated with 310 hand-colored plates. Half calf - with ribbed spine and glorious gilt lettering. No markings - very very clean inside with almost invisible foxing - so minor its hardly worth mentioning. Bindings in top order, tight and very clean. First compiled by William Woodville (1752-1805), a Quaker physician and botanist, and issued in parts from 1790 to 1795, MEDICAL BOTANY remained the standard illustrated book of plants of the British pharmacopoeia until the late 1870s. This third edition of MEDICAL BOTANY, edited and expanded by the British botanist William Jackson Hooker (1785-1865), who created the modern Royal Garden. An immaculate set - rare to find in this condition. Do enquire for more photographs if desired.
