Rare hand-coloured Italian edition of John Hill's Decade of Curious and Elegant Trees and Plants, 1773.

Decade di alberi curiosi ed eleganti piante delle Indie orientali e dell'America ultimamente fatte gia'note dal celebre Sig. Dottore Giovanni Hill

(A Decade of Curious and Elegant Trees and Plants from the East Indies and America lately made known by the famous Doctor John Hill).

With 10 fine copperplates coloured in the distinctive 18th-century style

Most of the plants from Asia, India and China, with just three from the Americas (Venus flytrap, Mexican waterlily and Peruvian lily).

The plates engraved by Giuseppe Bianchi after Cesare Majoli (or Maioli), reputedly based on original botanical illustrations by John Hill himself.

With a dedication to the astronomer and botanical collector Filippo Luigi Gilii by the artist Majoli, and introduction by the anonymous translator (believed to be the Argentine botanist Gaspar Juarez).

The ten plants and trees are:
Kamala tree or red kamala or kumkum tree, Mallotus philippensis. (As Cornucopian shrub, Copianthus indica) South and Southeast Asia
Peruvian lily or Inca lily, Alstromeria pelegrina. Peru
Elephant apple, Dillenia indica. China
Little tree plant or Mukkootti, Biophytum sensitivum (As Oxalis sensitiva). Nepal and India
Venus flytrap, Dionaea muscipula, vulnerable. North and South Carolinas, North America
Orchid tree or camel's foot, Bauhinia purpurea. Myanmar and Indian subcontinent
Candelabra tree, Ceropegia candelabrum. India and Sri Lanka
Yellow waterlily or Mexican waterlily, Nymphaea mexicana. (As yellow American water-lilly, Nymphaea nelumbo flava) Southern United States and Mexico.
Tropical pitcher plant or bandura, Nepenthes distillatoria. Sri Lanka
Champak, Magnolia champaca (As orange grape, Michelia champaca) South Asia and China

John Hill, c.1714-1775, was an English writer and botanist. After apprenticing as an apothecary, he later became botanist and plant collector to the Duke of Richmond and Lord Petre. In 1759 he started publishing his study of the Vegetable System which ran to 26 volumes with 1,600 engravings. He also wrote novels, plays and papers on natural history, medicine, astrology and geology.

Bound in marble-paper wraps with different patterns, paper spine mostly gone, book block fragile but holding, interior with some faint water stains to title page and other page edges, but all text plates bright, and the copperplate engravings with wide margins, deep crisp impressions, and vivid contemporary hand colour.

Very rare to find with hand-coloured plates.

Description:
Very good set of this fine British flora, the first to rival James Sowerby's English Botany from 1791. Complete with 509 hand-coloured copperplates engraved by Charles Mathews after botanical illustrations by Mathews, Isaac Russel (an Oxford glass painter) and William Alfred Delamotte. The plates were reputedly hand-coloured by Baxter's daughters and daughter-in-law. George Claridge Druce in The Flora of Berkshire, 1897, writes, "The plates of this work, although of unequal merit, are in many cases very excellent and possess a special value, because each figure is drawn from an individual plant, the locality or origin of which is usually stated."First issued in parts from 1832, and later in book form from 1834. This set states Second Edition, 1834, on the title page of Vol. I, but all other volumes are 1st edition: Vol. II 1835, Vol. III 1837, Vol. IV 1839, Vol. V 1840, and Vol. VI 1843.

Description:
Very good copy of Volume XVIII (18) of Edwards's Botanical Register, 1832
Complete with all 88 (8 folding) hand-coloured botanical plates (No. 1477-1564).
Most by talented woman botanical artist Miss Sarah Drake (59), the others by J.T. Hart and (his sister?) M. Hart, William Herbert, John Lindley (1) and Charles Morgan Curtis (1).
Includes many new exotic species of showy orchids (13), as well as camellia, aster, acacia, air plant, azalea, fuchsia, delphinium, lotus, cactus, pears, etc. Sarah Drake's dynamic and graceful flowers really stand out here compared to the rather stiff and angular designs of the other artists.
The Botanical Register was launched by Sydenham Edwards in 1815 following his departure as main illustrator to William Curtis's Botanical Magazine. Edwards edited the magazine and drew most of the plates in 14 volumes until his death in 1828. John Lindley then took over as editor on a further 19 volumes under the title Edwards's Botanical Register from 1829 to 1847. By 1832, Miss… Read More
