The volumes appear not to have been used which may explain their immaculate and stunning condition. The magazine was founded in 1787 by William Curtis and has continued publication to the present day. 'The reputation of the magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants.' Curtis' principal artists were William Kilburn + James Sowerby and Sydenham T. Edwards. These skilled artists worked with him for 28 years and it was they who were responsible for most of the plates that appeared in the magazine. From October 1834 Walter Fitch became the main artist - a post that he would hold for 40 years. 'In the confident hands of a botanical artist like W.H. Fitch lithographs have an immediacy and spontaneity encountered usually only in original works of art.' Some very slight offsetting to some of the text and plates. Plate 3669 demonstrates quality. Size: 5.5" - 9" Tall. N° de ref. de la librería 004994

Descripción de la librería: Our base is near Billingshurst, West Sussex UK. We have been book collecting for 30 years. Our books are stored at the appropriate steady temperature and humidity. We offer rare and out of print books primarily to collectors. We normally describe the condition of boards and spines separately and in addition to contents. For magazines and leaflets we use the book description box to describe the CONTENTS and the jacket box to describe the covers. To assist collectors we try and offer magazines individually (subject to a minimum order value of £10 + P&P). For a number of the more valuable books photographs are avaialable on our website. Some have multiple images and there are both small and large images available. Either click "ask bookseller a question" or e mail us direct to access the picture gallery. For queries made through our BiancoLibrary website we can provide images "scanned to e-mail" for books vlaued at over 20 pounds or so. Please bear in mind that these scans cover boards and plates etc but cannot always accommodate spines. In some cases we can also fax black and white copies. We ask customers not to abuse this service.
