THE NEW BOTANIC GARDEN, Illustrated with One Hundred and Thirty-Three Plants, Engraved By Sansom, from the Original pictures, and Coloured with the Greatest Exactness from Drawings.

Two volumes. Late 20th century half green morocco, green marbled paper covered boards with titles in gilt to the spine. All edges gilt. Green ribbon page markers. Half titles in both volumes. Illustrated with 61 fine hand-coloured plates, engraved by Sansom, from drawings by Sydenham Edwards. An excellent near fine copy, the bindings square and firm, the spine ever so slightly uniformly faded. The contents, with minor spotting to the prelims and the occasion margin are otherwise clean and bright throughout. An attractive and complete copy.

Sydenham Edwards' fine plates were first published in Dickson's A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardening in 1807, and then republished by Stockdale in 1812 both under the present title and as The New Flora Britannica. (Nissen 480; Sitwell and Blunt 56).
