Vilmorin-Andrieux & Co. Printed by E. Martinet, 1870. Hardcover. Item #263396
ISBN: 281AIB1048353

Unpaginated. A book of more than 1000 black-and-white botanical illustrations that functions like an early field guide. While this edition is undated, its estimated publication date is sometime in the 1870s when the French edition appeared. Vilmorin was founded as a plant and seed boutique in 1743. In 1856 Louis de Vilmorin published 'Notes on the Creation of a New Race of Beetroot and Consideration of Heredity in Plants,' establishing the theoretical groundwork for the modern seed-breeding industry. Undated copy but probably early 1870s, possibly first English edition. A very good copy in brown cloth. Spine is covered with black tape. Front free endpaper is brown stained, probably from spilled liquid. Scarce book.

Price: $160.00
