"Richly illustrated monograph on the flora of Holland with 464 figures on ninety-one plates" (Landwehr, p. 156). Often, the plates are folded, but in this copy they are "unfolded" (leaving only a weak, straight, vertical crease in the middle) in an oblong atlas, which is much nicer, and more easy to use. Some small repairs on verso of plates. A few pencil markings, and save a few weak spots on a few plates some slight foxing in the text only; more extensive on the endpapers due to the quality of the paper; the upper margin of several leaves in the third text volume with a damp stain (not reaching the text and probably from before binding as it starts and stops abruptly), otherwise very good.

Full title: De flora van Nederland ten behoeve van het algemeen beschreven.

A detailed description is as follows: octavo (three text parts) and oblong quarto (atlas). I (1859) xxiii, 449 pages.; II (1861) 398, xxi pages.; III (1862) 375 pages. Numerous text engravings, and 92 (91 fine, hand-coloured) lithographed plates, plate XXXIVa not coloured, as intended. Uniform contemporary half calf over marbled boards, with gilt title on spines (text parts), and later half cloth over marbled boards (atlas), with the original chromolithographed front cover bound in.

Definitely one of the best 19th-century Dutch floras, With excellent hand-colouring. A nice set.
