Botany, Illustrated, Literature - Quantity: 2 - Hand coloured illustrations - Book

Object: Book (More lots)
Number of Books: 2
Subject: Botany, Illustrated, Literature
Author/ Illustrator: Granville, Karr, Delord, Foelix
Book Title: Les Fleurs animées
Condition: Fine
Publication year oldest item: 1867
Edition: Reprint
Language: French
Original language: Yes
Publisher: Paris, Garnier Frères
Binding/ Material: Half leather
Extras: Hand coloured illustrations
Number of pages: 552
Dimensions: 27×19 cm

Two quarto volumes quarto (27 x 19 cm), 326 and 339 pages. A new edition with plates retouched for engraving and colouring by M. Maubert.

Paris: Garnier Freres 1867.

Lovely half calf binding, spine somewhat rubbed. But the interior is faultless and the protected plates as bright and colourful as the day they were hand-finished.
Illustrated with 50 magnificent hand-colored plates plus 2 hand-colored title pages, each plate depicting Grandville's marvellous humanized flowers. Also includes many smaller black & white engravings as well as pictorial initials. A bright and beautiful copy. This is a much-sought after edition as the plates are far better than in earlier versions.

The binding is a little tired, but the interior is absolutely fine, without any foxing or browning and with a freshness to the paper and the plates which is remarkable. Really fine condition.
