Pp. xiv, 182, (2); xii, 183-368, (2); viii, 369-578, xii pages + 205 (of 210) copper engraved hand-colored Botanical plates, numbered 1-185 and 191-210.

Rare First edition of this illustrated comprehensive catalogue of all the plants in the Materia Medica of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London and Edinburgh, with 205 (of 210) beautiful vivid hand-colored engraved plates.
“Probably the finest of all color-plate medical botanies in English, containing systematic and general descriptions of all the plants in the Materia Medica of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London and Edinburgh. It remained the standard work on the plants of the British pharmacopoeia until the 1880s” (Garrison-Morton). “Dr. Woodville had a strong taste for botany, and appropriated two acres of ground at King’s Cross belonging to the hospital as a botanical garden, which he maintained at his own expense. In 1790 he published the first volume of his great work Medical Botany, in which he gave a description of all the medicinal plants mentioned in the catalogues of the Materia Medica published by the Royal Colleges of Physicians of London and Edinburgh. These descriptions were illustrated by plates and accompanied by an account of the medicinal effects of the plants” (DNB). Though Woodville was at first hostile to Jenner’s discovery of the use of cowpox to inoculate against smallpox, he soon enthusiastically adopted and promoted Jenner’s theory, and made many experiments with a view to elucidating it. In 1800 Woodville and Jenner together published A Comparative Statement of Facts and Observations Relative to the Cow-pox. A supplementary volume, containing plants not included in the Materia Medica, was issued separately in 1794. Garrison-Morton 1838.1. A classic work. Complete as issued.
