Description

A Very Good + copy of the first edition, later printing of this very rare botanical work describing one hundred woody plants, with fruit and flowers growing wild in German, containing 100 beautiful illusctrations engraved and drawn by G.F. Abel, a Stuttgart artist and engraver. The basic text provides a key to the plates, which are titled beneath each subject with their Latin binomial and the common name in German. resentation of the plates is unusual in the use of shadows which are employed to lift the samples from the page and further the illusion of reality. Reitter, a botanist and forester was the Würtemberg 'Hofjäger' from 1780-1793 and also taught forestry at Hohenheim. He was a forestry commissioner at Stuttgart from 1794-1801 and with the Würtemberger forestry department from 1803-1811. BOUND TOGETHER WITH the first edition, first printing, of Beschreibung und Abbildung der Deutschland Seltener Wildwachsenden und Einiger Bereits Naturalisirten Holz-Arten als Fortsezung von den Abbildungen der Hundert Deutschen Wilden Holzarten by Reiter and containing 25 beautiful illusctrations engraved and drawn by G.F. Abel. The illustrations are in nice condition with some modest soiling, marking, and toning. EACH TITLE IS EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO THE MARKET.
