The Flora batava, a monumental work forming a beautifully illustrated survey of all indigenous plants in the Netherlands. It was started in 1800 by Jan Kops, a Dutch agronomist and professor of botany at Utrecht. The first 10 volumes constitute all that was prepared and issued under his supervision. When finished at last in 1934, Willem Jan Lütjeharms was the editor for volume 28, in which he concludes that this work has ended now and that publication took longer than any comparable foreign flora: De Flora Batava heeft langer geleefd dan een der met dit werk vergelijkbare buitenlandsche plaatwerken. The long publication period reflects the change in the technique of its illustrations. Initially copper-engravings were used, followed by lithographs, all coloured by hand, but from volume 25 colour-printing was gradually introduced. Also several artists were involved, but the plates are not signed, nor much information is given about them. Most plates in the first 3 volumes were illustrated by Georg Jacob Johann van Os. He was born in 1782 in The Hague and settled in Paris in 1826, where he worked for the Sèvres porcelain factory and was a painter of flower and fruit pieces, still lifes, etc. These early, finely engraved plates are exquisitely coloured by hand. Each plate is accompanied by a text in Dutch and French. The first publisher, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, was renowned for its scientific colour-plate books. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. This plate is in the most desirable 4to format.

James Sherard (1666-1738), botanist and apothecary, had gardens famous for rare plants at Eltham, south of Greenwich. Dillenius made the gardens memorable through excellent illustrations, drawn and engraved by himself. They were sufficiently accurate to be of considerable service to Linnaeus (Hunt).

"Er bleibt für immer der geniale Schöpfer und Begründer der praktischen und wissenschaftlichen Pomologie. J.H. Knoop war der erste wahre und wirkliche Pomologe im wissenschaftliche richtigen Sinne des Wortes!" (Martini). The first work on apples and pears, Pomologia, became the most popular treatise on pomology in the eighteenth century and went through 3 Dutch editions and was translated into German and French, while the second work, Fructologia, is devoted to fruits other than apples and pears. The hand-coloured folded plates show the fruits on natural size. They were engraved by Jan C. Philips or Jacob Folkema after the original drawings of Knoop. The plates of Fructologia are unsigned.
