Flora Britannica. Illustrated with One Hundred and Thirty-Three Plants, engraved by Sansom, from the original pictures, and coloured with the greatest exactness from drawings by Sydenham Edwards, in two volumes, [2 volumes in 1].
London J. Stockdale 1812 - Thick 4to., two volumes in one with continuous pagination, 503 pages, includes title-page of volume 2 (often lacking), 61 hand-coloured plates (inclulidng two numbered 19`), the occasional spot and finger-mark to margins, otherwise very good, contemporary full maroon straight-grained morocco, with blind-stamped and gilt decorated panels to boards, gilt titles and gilt decorated spine panels, all edges gilt, replaced endpapers, else near fine and most attractive. The plates from this edition were first published by R. W. Dickson under the pseudonym Alexander McDonald in "A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardening" (1807). However, in this edition the presentation of the plates is far superior due to the more brilliant coloration and the fact that a higher quality paper stock was used to print the plates in the first place. Nissen BBI, 479. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
