Descripción:

Considered to be the Principal Work of Pierre Joseph Buc'hozTwo Hundred Magnificent Hand-Colored Engraved PlatesA Large-Paper Copy in a Contemporary Binding and With the Plates in Two States BUC'HOZ, Pierre Joseph. Premiere [-Seconde] Centurie de Planches Enluminées et Non Enluminées Representant au Naturel, Ce qui se trouve de plus Interessant et de plus Curieux parmi les Animaux, les Vegetaux et les Mineraux. Por servir d'intelligence a l'histoire Generale des trois Regnes de la Nature. Paris: Lacombe (parts 1-4); Amsterdam: Marc Michel Rey (parts 5-16), Paris: Chez L'Auteur (parts 17-20), [1775]-1781. First edition with the plates in two states. Two large folio volumes (18 5/16 x 12 1/2 inches; 465 x 318 mm.). Twenty engraved titles printed in red, yellow, blue or black, and twenty engraved lists of the plates. Two hundred zoological, botanical and mineralogical plates, each in hand-colored and plain states, for a total of 400 plates divided into twenty decades.Contemporary full red morocco, covers ruled in gilt, spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, olive green and dark green leather labels lettered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Joints expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Some marginal worming of the plates in volume one, otherwise a very fine example of this beautiful work in a fine contemporary binding.The curiosities of the three kingdoms, animal, vegetable and mineral, are represented by the two hundred hand colored plates which consist of eighty zoological (including twenty-six birds), sixty botanical and sixty of fossils.Considered the principal work of the Buc'hoz, the magnificent plates were designed and engraved by the leading artists and engravers of the 18th century. They include Jean Baptise Desmoulins, Jac de Favanne, and Guil. De Favanne; Claude Mathieu Fessard, who engraved the plates for many books of Buchoz, C. Baquoy, Dupin fils, J. Mesnil, I. Robert, F. Lucas, Jac. Julliet. Of special interest are the drawings of Chinese plants executed by native artists. Many of these plants are signed "Peint a la Chine", and much of Buchoz's other work also has a distinctly oriental flavor. Pierre Joseph Buc'hoz (1731-1807) who was born in Metz, was appointed physician in ordinary to Stanislaus, King of Poland, but his driving interest was in natural history and the publication of numerous books. His biographer in the 'Biographie Universelle' states that he published over 300 volumes, including 95 large folios, in addition to a great number of papers and dissertations. He also described many new plants which Louis XV ordered to be cultivated in the Jardin du Trianon. Nissen IVB 156; Sitwell p 82; Blunt pp.158-160; Brunet I, 1371. Graesse I, 563.
