"A delightful work pictorially..most carefully colored and a source of lasting interest and information." G.Dunthorne.

The Curtis Botanical Magazine is distinguished as the longest running botanical publication of all time. It started in 1787 and has continued on through today having become the publication called Kew Magazine. The plates in this publication have historically been coveted because of the artistry of the work of botanical illustrators, particularly Sydenham Edwards and James Sowerby (earlier series), Walter Hood Fitch and Lilian Snelling.

8vo. (5.5"x 9.25"), 60 hand- colored lithographs, third series, quarter leather with marbled boards, plates are in good to excellent condition with some spotting, light notations in very neat hand of the period on three plates, binding good with spine bumped and rubbed top and bottom, corners and bottom of boards scuffed and rubbed, tight. References: Dunthorne 189 Nissen 2350.
