The new medico-botanical portion supplied by G. Spratt.

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.
