Description :

2 volumes, 4to, 9 leaves, 248 pages, 6 leaves, and 25 engraved plates (6 folding, fore-edges of 2 others folded in); 5 leaves, 306 pages, 13 leaves, and 77 botanical plates (including 5 unnumbered). Additional folding engraved frontispiece portrait of Alpini by Blokhuysen inserted in volume 1 (with creases from folding in both directions, and a small tear in the margin). Four divisional titles in volume 2. Contemporary vellum, red morocco labels. First and last leaves in both volumes slightly browned, library stamp and shelf mark on front endpapers and verso of titles, otherwise a fine and very large copy. FIRST EDITION of Alpini?s Rerum Aegyptiarum, contained in the first volume, ?a pioneer and undeservedly neglected contribution to Egyptology. Edited after Alpini?s death by Bartolomeo Cellari, it contains a wealth of information on the natural history (including zoology and mineralogy), customs, and ancient monuments of Egypt? (DSB). The second volume contains Alpini?s work on the plants of Egypt, first published in 1592, a pioneer study of Egyptian flora which introduced exotic plants to European botanical circles. The editor used the 1640 edition, which was annotated by Johann Vesling (1598?1649). This is a fine edition, printed on large paper. Nissen 20. Pritzel 113. Casey Wood p. 188.

Description du livre apud Gerardum Potvliet, Lugduni Batavorum, 1735. Full Vellum. État : Very Good. 2 Volumes in one. 4to (21 x 17 cm). Contemporary vellum on boards. Collation: [xx] 248 [12]; [viii] 306 [24]p. + 102 copper engrave plates that includes both animals and plants. The binding has some buckling and remnants of mold stain on back cover. Author and title in early ink on spine. The internal condition is generally very good. The previous exposure to moisture which apparently did not enter the text did however cause apparent wicking that buckled plates and text pages. There is corresponding evidence of small amount of light mold stain at the tail region as well as some light browning to some plates. The collation of plates is correct but two plates from the first work are in the second. Also, not all numbers on plates are present or visible. There is ample margin throughout the book. This work combines two of Alpini's major contributions from his exploration to Egypt as physician and avid naturalist. The first part of this work is published here for the first time and is often referred to as Rerum Ægyptiarum. Alpini had received his training in medicine at Padua and eventually became director of the Botanical Garden. His meticulous and copious notes and collections that he made wherever he touched ground during his travels to and in Egypt resulted in a number of publications. This is the third, which deals with botany as well as natural history of animals. Althought the botanical information was first published in 1592, the present posthumous work has been supplemented with notes and observations of Veslingi. (Pritzel, 113).

Description du livre Gerardum Potvliet, Lugduni Batavorum, 1735. Hardcover. Small quarto (6" x 8") in contemporary vellum. Two volumes bound in one. Illustrated with 102 copper-engraved plates of animals and plants. RERUM AEGYPTIARUM [xx], 248, (12) pages. PLANTIS AEGYPTI [viii], 306, [24] pages. Two plates from part one misbound in the second, plant part, but it makes sense since these are botanical plates. (Hunt 164, Nissen 20 for Plantis Aegypti). This work combines two of Alpinus’s major contributions from his exploration to Egypt as physician and avid naturalist. The first part of this work is published here for the first time and is often referred to as Rerum AEgyptiarum. Alpinus had received his training in medicine at Padua and eventually became director of the Botanical Garden. His meticulous and copious notes and collections that he made wherever he touched ground during his travels to and in Egypt resulted in a number of publications. This is the third, which deals with botany as well as natural history of animals. Although the botanical information here, the first scientific study of Egyptian plants, was first published in 1592, the present posthumous work has been supplemented with notes and observations of Veslingi. (Pritzel, 113) Prospero Alpinus (also known as Prosper Alpini, Prospero Alpinio, and Prosper Alpin) spent three years in Egypt. His DE MEDICINA EGYPTIORUM, first published in 1591, is said to contain the first account of the coffee plant published in Europe. The same work introduced the banana and baobab to Europeans. Some mold spotting to the rear board which lightly affects a few of the rear pages. A little wrinkling to the pages but generally a clean copy with crisp plates. Near Fine.
