A Flora of North America, Illustrated by Original Coloured Figures, Drawn from Nature, by William P.C. Barton, M.D., U.S.N., Professor of Botany in the University of Pennsylvania, and one of the Physicians of the Philadelphia Alms-House-Infirmary. Vol. II only. Condition poor. Period marbled boards with gilt decorated red leather spine; top panel of spine loose but present. Spine and all edges rubbed, corners bumped, binding split, some pages loose. Missing 11 of 34 coloured plates. One plate loose and torn, with no loss of image, archivally mounted on acid-free paper. All pages age toned, with light foxing, some with damp-stained edges. The other 23 plates present are intact and mostly clean (a few lightly stained). One plate (Cyamus luteus) is folio size, with partial tear along fold, not affecting image; the other folio plate (Centaurea Americana) is missing. The plates are engraved from drawings by Barton; some of the "plates are printed in colour, and are afterwards coloured by hand." Also contains Note to Subscribers, explaining that a folio plate is replacing two quarto plates, Forward, Index of Botanical Names and Synonyms, and Index of English and Vulgar Common Names. Barton's Flora was one of the earliest illustrated floras of North America, and one of the earliest colour plate books printed entirely in North America. An important early American flora, unfortunately much the worse for wear; yet even so, the remaining plates are very nice. N° de ref. de la librería 000037
