Les palmiers. Histoire iconographique.
Paris, J. Rothschild, 1878. Large 8vo (26.2 x 17.3 cm). viii, 348 pp., 40 fine chromolithographed plates and 228 illustrations in the text. Contemporary half leather binding with decorated gilt spine and marbled boards.= First edition of this sought-after work on palms. The chromolithographs are by the famous Pieter de Pannemaeker and of a high standard. Count Oswald de Kerchove de Denterghem (1844-1906) was the third Count in a row with a love for botany, following in his father's and grandfather's footsteps. He published several works on palms and orchids, besides having a political career. This specific title is sought after for the beautiful plates, and is quite rare now. Half title top margin clipped, some light spotting, plates generally in good condition. A very nice copy. Nissen BBI, 1032; Stafleu & Cowan, 3590.
