‎Scarce first edition of one of the most important Italian floras, here in the EXTREMELY RARE COLOURED STATE, by one of the most important botanists of the 18th century, the Piedmont Linné (""Il Linneo piemontese""), Carlo Allioni (1728-1804). The Piedmontese Flora is Allioni's main work. In the text it describes 2.831 species of Piedmont plants, and the plates depict 92 hitherto unknown or very rare species of plants, many of which have been discovered by Allioni himself or by his illustrator. The 92 beautiful plates are drawn by Francisco Peiroleri and engraved by his son Petrus Peiroleri. The work was more than 25 years on its way, and with its appearance Allioni established his reputation as one of the main botanists of the 18th century.This work is considered one of the most important flower books of Europe and undoubtedly the most important of Piedmont, and it has received worldwide fame as one of the most beautiful and important alpine botanical works. With this work Allioni is the first to organize the flora of Piedmont in a modern system, i.e applying the new principles of nomenclature after the Linnean model, and for this reason he is called the Linné of Piedmont. He actually corresponded much with Linné, who also considered him a reformist botanical writer and even named the New World herb genus Allionia after him.Carlo Allioni was an Italian physician and botanist and is considered one of the greatest experts in scientific botany and medicine in Europe in the 18th century. He was born in Turin in 1728 and finished his medical studies in 1747. He had planned to become a professor of medicine, but decided to devote himself to the study of natural history and became one of the most important botanists of the century. ""As a young man of twenty-five, Carlo Allioni made a botanical tour of Piedmont and Savoy, but he was sixty and nearly blind when the ""Flora Pedemontana"", his most important work, was published. He had been for many years Professor of Botany and Director of the Botanical Garden of the University of Turin, and was a corresponding associate of learned societies from Spain to Sweden."" (Alice M. Coats, The Book of Flowers, 1973. Nr. 80). In the 18th century botanical science underwent somewhat of a rebirth, mainly caused by the writings of Linné. However, Linné was not alone in making his discoveries and systems known and applied, and several important botanists helped pave the way for the taking over of the Linnean nomenclature system. Not only had Linné turned the way of classifying, arranging and naming species upside down, he had also discovered many new species and begun to compile local floras. One of his devoted followers was Allioni, who devoted himself entirely to the new system and became an enthusiastic advocate for it. The Flora Pedemontana, which had been under preparation for about 25 years, when it appeared in 1785, represents the epitome of Allioni's floral studies, and it represents a scientific study of the utmost importance, since it practically applies the new principles of botanical nomenclature.The illustrator, Francesco Peyroleri aus Viù, was a very gifted self-taught botanical painter, who was famous for his artistic abilities as well as his home-made colours that were made from the flowers he knew from the botanical gardens. He was also renowned for his special way of pressing the plants from below on to the humid paper in order to achieve a better sense of relief in the figures. Though he was self-taught, he possessed such skills that he quickly became an authority, whom many others asked for advise, and he was counted as an equal by the masters. ""In Allionis ""Flora Pedemontana"", deren Tafeln er sämtlich gezeichnet hat, wird er nicht selten als Finder oder Entdecker angeführt. Der Stecher dieser Tafeln, Francescos Sohn Pietro Peyroleri, hatte bereits 1755 im Alter von 14 Jahren die Zeichnungen des Vaters für Allionis ""Rariorum Pedemontii stirpium specimen primum"" vervielfältigt"" Seine Ausbildung hatte er dann von Carlo Emanuele Beaumont empfangen, der wie Bartolozzi ein Schüler Joseph Wagners in Venedig war."" (Nissen I, p. 154).Together these two major authorities, Allioni and Peiroleri, have made a hugely important and lasting contribution of great beauty to the history of scientific botany, which became a main publication of the Age of Enlightenment. Coloured copies of the work are known to exist, but they are extremely scarce. ""The earlier works having plates with an engraved or lithographed outline exist in both hand-coloured and uncoloured states. Sometimes as with Curtius's ""Flora Londoniensis"", uncoloured states are extremely rare"" sometimes, as with Allioni's ""Flora Pedemontana"", the coloured state is extremely rare."" (Sitwell, p. 67).Sitwell p. 69. ""92 uncoloured plates by F. Peiroleri, engraved by P. Peiroleri. Coloured copies are extremely rare.""Stafleu and Cowan nr. 100 (Flora Pedemontana) + 101 (the Auctuarium). Nr. 100: ""The plates (copper engravings) are by Francisco Peyrolery (engraved by Pietro Peyrolery), mostly uncoloured"" coloured copies are rare… Becherer (1953) has shown that the 23 specific names marked with a dagger are to be attributed to Allioni and not to Bellardi who had provided information on the relevant species to Allioni but who had not named them.""Graesse I:81. ""Les exempl. Ornés de planch. Enlum. Sont plus chers (15th. Weigel, sans le suppl.). Pritzel ignorait qu'il en existe"" - Pritzel does state: ""Florae Pedemontanae exempla tabulis coloratis rarissime occurrunt."" (Pritzel p. 4). Nissen, however might be said to ingnore this.Nissen 18. The ""Auctuarium"" is here wrongly registered by Nissen as containing 80 pp. and 7 plates. Pritzel: 108.Brunet I:190-91. ""Les exemplaires avec planches coloriées sont plus chers que les autres.""Alice M. Coats, The Book of Flowers, 1973. Nr. 80: The Carline Thistle. The plant, ""which is shown here, was distinguished and named by Allioni.""The work was reprinted in 2003, in order to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the great botanist (2204). ‎

‎The very rare first edition of Müller’s floral magnum opus, which according to his own statements contains a description of all known plants in Denmark, of which Müller prides himself with having discovered and described no less than 300. Müller participated in the production of the monumental “flora Danica” with its magnificent plates of all Danish plants, but the present work is the only work of botany that he himself published, namely of the flora of the Schulin Estate. “Otto Friedrich Muller (1730-1784) was born in Copenhagen, the son of the court trumpeter, a German man who had moved to Denmark. With a ready and lively intelligence, he received an excellent education admitted to the University of his hometown at the age of 18, according to the custom of the time he initially studied theology (the Danish university had only three courses of study: theology, law, medicine), then moved to law he had excellent skills in various fields, including music. However, he did not graduate, because for economic reasons in 1753 he abandoned his studies to enter the service of the Schulin family as a tutor to the heir of the house, who was orphaned at an early age. He lived with the Schulin for about twenty years, mostly on their Friedrichsdalin estate, near Copenhagen. Beginning in 1758, using Linnaeus' books, he began to study natural sciences as a self-taught student, both out of passion and to teach his pupil. Starting in 1761, he procured a microscope. His first scientific publication was a catalogue of insects from the Schulin estate, Fauna insectorum Fridrichsdalina (1764). Between 1765 and 1767, during a trip to Europe with his pupil, he visited many countries in central and southern Europe and was able to attend scientific circles, making contacts and lasting friendships. A man of the world, well accustomed to courtiers since childhood, through a strategy of targeted promotion (knowledge of eminent scientists, publication of previous works in support of his candidacy) he managed to be admitted into many European scientific societies. A Strasbourg published his only work of botany, a catalogue of the flora of the Schulin estate, Flora Fridrichsdalina (1767). During the journey, thanks to the various meetings, his interests finally shifted from botany to zoology, in particular to the study of invertebrates, of which he became perhaps the greatest expert of his time. In 1771 - his pupil was then 24 years old - he left the Schulin and thanks to Oeder's recommendation he was hired at the State Archives the office was renovated in 1772 after the fall of Struensee and Müller and, although he retained a small pension, he lost his place. His marriage to the wealthy Norwegian widow Anna Catharina Paludan resolved his economic problems once and for all from that moment on, he was able to devote himself full-time to scientific work. An important piece of his research was the Estate of Drobak, on the Gulf of Oslo, owned by his wife, where the scientist spent the summers from 1774 to 1778, focusing in particular on the study of marine micro-fauna. He was assisted by a team that included draughtsmen and engravers (one of the best painters was his younger brother, Christian Friedrich, who, in addition to illustrating some of his brother's works, years later collaborated with Vahl on the third tranche of Flora Danica) and a number of students, recruited in an ingenious way. Every year, Müller made an advertisement in the newspapers to recruit them and paid them for the journey from Copenhagen to Oslo. Beginning in 1771, publications also multiplied, mainly dedicated to different classes of invertebrates, before then little known. In the meantime, Müller had presented to the court the project of a Fauna Danica, to pair with Flora Danica, of which he was appointed curator after Oeder's departure. The countryside in Norway and, later, when arthritis forced him to give it up, the coasts of Denmark, including the islands, allowed him to collect specimens for both works. In 1776 he anticipated the content of his great zoological work with Zoologiæ Danicae Prodromus, which listed, classified and briefly described all the animal species of the kingdom of Denmark-Norway, a work of epochal importance for the innovative classification of invertebrates. Two folio volumes of Fauna Danica followed in 1777 and 1786, with 40 plates (the other two volumes would be completed and published by various curators many years after his death). Between 1776 and 1784 five files of Flora Danica were also released. However, an important work on infusers (small single-celled organisms that develop in plant infusions, belonging to various classes, especially protozoa) remained unfinished (and was completed by O. Fabricius). In 1784, after a decade of intense work, Müller died at the age of fifty.” (D. D. Damkaer, The Copepodologist's Cabinet, A Biographical and Bibliographical History).‎

‎Arboretum Scandinavicum. Afbildninger af de i Danmark, Norge og Sverige vildtvoxende Træer og Buske, fremstillede efter Tavlerne i ""Flora Danica"" ved Joh. Lange.‎

‎Kjøbenhavn, Carl Lunds Bogtrykkeri, 1883. Folio. 39x27 cm. Contemp. hcalf. Richly gilt back and gilt borders on covers. Light wear to corners and a few scratches to binding. Titlepage. 5,(1) pp. (Index , Corrections and Addenda). With 171(of 175 ) Flora Danica-plates of Scandinavian trees and bushes. All plates engraved and in fine handcolouring, plates in near mint condition.‎

‎Scarce re-issue of Flora Danica in exquisite handcolouring, restricted to its trees and bushes. In this work, the last editor of Flora Danica, Joh. Lange selected all the original copper-plates which depicted trees and bushes from the whole work - in fact 9 of the earliest plates were damaged by fire, and as such not useable for a print to be taken - and made this re-issue, done with the original copper-plates as a separate issue of Flora Danica. Under his auspices all the prints were carefully hand-coloured with greatest care and often surpassing the original colouring. The paper used for the re-issue is of the same quality used for the last volumes of the original issue of Flora Danica of which the last volume, vol. 17, came out the same year as this extract, 1883. - Carl Christensen II, p.257 (No 119) - Nissen BBI: 1133 - Not in BMC (NH).‎
