Euphorbiaceae - Caperonia palustris - Ricinoides palustre foliis oblongis serratis, fructu hispido Houstoun
From: Historia plantarum rariorum by John Martyn.
London, 1728 [-1737]. Mezzotint engraving printed in colours and finished by hand, dedicated to William Beeston, engraved by Elisha Kirkall after William Sartorys (sheet 338 x 517 mm; impression 250 x 380 mm). Text missing.
€ 400
The collection of English flower prints properly commences with a rather amazing item. In 1728 John Martyn published his Historia Plantarum Rariorum. It contained no less than fifty colour printed mezzotints by Kirkall after paintings by Van Huysem, These are the first recorded examples of botanical plates printed in colour. Each plate is dedicated to some famous botanist or well known gardener and is decorated with his coat of arms (Dunthorne). Most of the plates are printed in two colours, some in more, in a single pull and finished by water-colour. All plates were engraved by Elisha Kirkall after paintings by Jacob van Huysum and some others. The book describes and pictures various new plants growing at Chelsea Physic Garden and the Cambridge Botanic Garden.

Trained as an apothecary, he turned to gardening and then the description and illustration of plants. In his Flora londinensis he presented an impressive record of wildflowers growing within ten miles of London, including many no longer found there; and in his Botanical Magazine (1786 to date) he offered those exotics which Englishmen were pleased to grow in their gardens. … this splendid, complicated, basic English flora … (Hunt).

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. The first publisher, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, was renowned for its scientific colour-plate books. Each plate is accompanied by a text in Dutch and French. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. This plate is in the most desirable large 4to format.

Very rare work, which was published in parts from 1828-1833 in 6 volumes by the French botanist and artist Jaume Saint-Hilaire (1772-1845). It was planned to issue 800 plates but the regular publication was terminated with plate 544. Among those who worked under van Spaëndonck or Redouté, or who based their style on the pure water-colour technique which Redouté learned from his master, may be mentioned Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, Mme Vincent (b. 1786), Jaume-Saint-Hilaire, Chazal and Prêtre. Most of these artists were the equals of Redouté in technical skill, and given his opportunities might have won the same renown. … Jaume-Saint-Hilaire was no less distinguished as a botanist, and his introduction into France of Polygonum tinctorum, which yields a valuable blue dye, was of considerable importance (Blunt).

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. The first publisher, J.C. Sepp en Zoon, was renowned for its scientific colour-plate books. Each plate is accompanied by a text in Dutch and French. The work was issued in 8vo and 4to. This plate is in the most desirable large 4to format.
