LONDON: Printed at the Caxton Press by Henry Fisher, n. d. 1824 [published date: 1824]. Rare Second edition, revised and improved. 4to. 11" x 8.75" inches (LxB). Pp. (4), 790; 885 pages + 106 hand-colored copper engraved botanical plates, the engraved title page & frontis.are dated 1816, all the plates are dated 1816-20 in the margins below images, engraved frontispiece to each, additional engraved title to volume I. Fine original contemporary full straight grained brown morocco leather boards, elaborately gilt decorated spines with 5 raised bands & two red & black gilt lettered morocco labels. Rare edition of this “account of all the known plants in the world,” with engraved frontispieces and title page, and 106 rich botanical plates, many by Merian and Ehret. Describing the various uses to which plants can be put, “whether as food, as medicine, or in the arts and manufactures—adapted for the use of the farmer, the gardener, the husband-man, the botanist, the florist, and country house-keepers,” this veritable encyclopedia of herbal knowledge, enhanced by gardening and cooking advice, was compiled by Thomas Green “from the accumulated labors of the most eminent authors.” The 106 botanical plates, most hand-colored, were engraved by Dixon, Dobie, Swift and others, and “exhibit the various kinds of leaves, trunks, roots, armature of plants, and more especially those which present the parts of fructification.” Most of the plates depict two or four plants—many painted from life by such famous botanical artists as Maria Sybilla Merian and Georg Dionysius Ehret. Other plants were copied from earlier botanical works: the pineapple, melon, lemon and pepper, for example, came from Merian’s Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium (1705) and the orchid, carnation, and papaya are from Philip Miller’s Gardener’s Dictionary (1755). The stipple-engraved allegorical frontispieces and title page were prepared after paintings by William Marshall Craig, fashionable miniaturist of the day. The plates are finely coloured and show flowers, fruit, vegetables and green houses. There are several plants to a plate. An unusual fresh copy of this work. Great Flower Books 58; Sitwell, 97. Nissen 754. A classic work. There are numerous close-up pictures of the contents given below; please click on them for a detailed description (See Scans below). Please take some time to view the 50+ pictures in detail, in order to gain a full idea of the contents and condition.
