 Duhamel du Monceau
Traitè des Arbres Fruitiers, Nouvelle Edition 1807

Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (1700-1782) was born in Paris to an aristocratic family; he studied law but later pursued his real passion of botany.  Following his scientific interest in botany, Duhamel du Monceau studied at the Jardin du Roi (later the Jardin du Plantes) and later became associated with the Academie des Sciences.  He published several scientific books relating to fruits and other plants and the Traitè des Arbres Frutiers (1768) was among them.  The original Traitè was not hand colored and the illustrations had an academic and scientific appearance.  The Tratie de Arbres Fruitiers of 1807, or the Nouvelle Edition as it is known, was the independent successor to the original book but bears little resemblance to it. The Nouvelle was printed in the larger Folio size whereas the original was printed in Quarto size. The Nouvelle was illustrated by the celebrated botanical artists Pierre Antoine Poiteau and Pierre-Jean-Françoise Turpin in association with Langlois, the great French color-printer who oversaw much of Redoutè's work . A very significant difference between the earlier and later editions is the stipple engraving in the Nouvelles (by Langlois) which serves to make the sumptuous fruit illustrations some of the most remarkable remarkable ever produced. "One of the finest and rarest books on fruit, with many beautiful plates." G. Dunthorne

"Grosse Mignonne"

Dimensions: Folio, 13 1/2" x 21" overall measurement.
Condition: Mat burn on outer margins will mat out, some tape residue on the outer margins will mat out, light paper toning otherwise good condition.
Printing type: Stipple engraving, printed in colors, hand finished color, Paris, 1825. Extremely Rare.
References: Dunthorne 192, Nissen 551, Stafleau TL2 1548
Note: This print came out of a major London auction house that neglected to mention in their catalog listing that the print was matted improperly with a non acid-free mat so the print sustained "mat burn" on the outer margins.  The image part of the print is still lovely, thereby matted properly with a conservation mat, the print will be stable (according to a well known conservator) and will provide many, many years of enjoyment.  This print is priced below market price because of this previously unreported condition.

Image #1:  Image area, how the print will look when it is matted and framed, Image #2:  The full sheet showing the margins with the mat burn.  This area will not show when the print is matted properly.
