Munchen [Munich]: Christian Kiser, [1867 / 1868]. First Edition with all 400 Images. Hardcover. Second Edition [1867] with First Edition of the Supplement [1868], TOGETHER COMPRISING THE FIRST EDITION CONTAINING ALL 400 ILLUSTRATIONS. Hardcover. A Near Fine to Fine copy of this remarkable work consisting of 400 colored plates showing flowering plants from the Alpine region with the plant names given both in German and in Latin, the bindings are in excellent condition (showing only light rubbing at the spine ends and board corners and some cracks and splits to some of the hinges) and the front board illustrations and spine lettering and illustration of each volume in brilliant gilt (with only mild oxidation to a couple of the volumes). Each volume shows some foxing to the edges of its closed page block and the illustrations show only occasional bits of foxing. Each volume measures approximately 5 inches X 3 1/2 inches and comes in its RARE original dust jacket, with some small wear and small tears where the the front and rear panels join their respective spine panels -- otherwise with such jackets showing only minor wear and minor chipping, and light sunning to the spine panels. The set is housed in the RARE ORIGINAL BOXES, with the first three [undated but published in 1867] volumes housed together in their original box and the 1868 supplement housed separately in its own box. The boxes are in about Very Good condition with some splitting at the seams. The larger box also shows a couple of tape repairs. This second edition and its supplement constitute the first set of volumes to contain all 400 illustrations. [Some History: The 1846 first edition was published in two volumes which together contained 200 plates. A third volume of 100 additional plates was published in 1856, making 300 total plates published. Then, in 1867, the second edition of those first three volumes was issued, with a fourth, supplemental, volume of 100 additional plates being added in 1868, making a total of 400 plates in the set. Thus, the three 1867 volumes -- together with the 1868 supplemental volume -- comprise the first complete set of 400 plates described in this listing -- thereafter both the third edition (1872) and the fourth edition (1880) were published in four volumes having a total of 400 plates in each such edition.] Thus, we have here the first complete set of all 400 plates. Such complete sets are quite scarce, especially when in a condition as nice as are these volumes. Copies in their original dust jackets are extraordinarily difficult to find (and are perhaps even RARE) and those in a condition as nice as is this set in their original dust jackets and original boxes are QUITE RARE INDEED. A remarkable and COLLECTION-DISTINGUISHING SET which is MENTIONED ON PAGE 87, AND OF WHICH AN IMAGE APPEARS ON PAGE 88, of Mark Godburn's excellent work titled "Nineteenth-Century Dust-Jackets" published by Oak Knoll Press in the US and by Private Libraries Association in the UK (2016).
