The Botany of William Woodville & James Sowerby.. (3rd volume)

Shown in this series of three books are the complete and original pattern hand-colored engravings plates from the artist James Sowerby’s medical plants present in the great work of William Woodville: Medical botany
(London : Printed and sold for the author, by James Phillips, 1790-1793). Medical Botany, William Woodville’s three volume work of materia medica, was published in monthly installments between 1790 and 1793.
A third edition of five volumes (the same used in our reproduction) was presented in 1832, twenty-seven years after Woodville’s death. This publication added descriptions of thirty-nine new plants and was edited and revised by
the eminent botanist, William Jackson Hooker (1785-1865). With this work, Woodville intended to educate medical practitioners about the plants they prescribe and improve upon preceding works by introducing new plants and more detail.

    Interessante raccolta di ottime tavole botaniche redatte da quel grande artista di James Sewbury !!!
