About this Item: Finely engraved title, woodcut head- & tailpieces, & 2776 woodcuts in the text. 20 p.l. (incl. initial blank & engraved title), 1630, [48] pp., one blank leaf. Thick folio (350 x 210 mm.), cont. calf (well-rebacked by Trevor Lloyd with the original spine laid-down, a few gouges carefully filled-in, corners bruised), panelled in gilt & blind, large gilt device in center of each cover, with initials "W H" on either side. London: A. Islip for J. Norton & R. Whitakers, 1633. First edition of Thomas Johnson's expanded and corrected version of Gerarde's Herball (1st ed.: 1597), the most famous of all English herbals. "Many errors made by Gerard in his text and in the identification of the illustrations were corrected by the apothecary and botanist Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), of London, who prepared an expanded edition of The Herball that first appeared in 1633?Johnson's painstaking revision of Gerard's herbal constituted in itself a valuable contribution to botany and to the art of the printed book. He added the descriptions of many new plants with illustrations, some of them borrowed from the botanical texts published by Christophe Plantin in Antwerp, in this way bringing the total number of engravings to 2,776. Any new passages were carefully marked with special symbols so that the reader could distinguish them from the original text? "The title-page of The Herball is particularly attractive. It was executed by John Payne (1607-1647), one of the most talented engravers of the period?In the upper part of Payne's work we see a luxuriant garden with the goddesses Ceres and Pomona on either side. Below them are the fathers of botany, Theophrastus and Dioscorides, while in the lower section two imposing vases filled with flowers surround a portrait of Gerard, who is shown facing in the opposite direction to that of the portrait by Rogers. The vase on the left is crowned with a bunch of bananas as a tribute to Johnson? "One of the most significant additions made by Johnson was his chapter on the 'Maracot' or 'Grandilla' as it was called at the time (actually the passion-flower). He includes a full page illustration (p. 1592) and refers the reader to Monardes for more information on this exotic species?In the long preface Johnson traces the history of the botanical sciences, analyzing the contributions of celebrated figures from the mythical King Solomon to William Turner?He closes with some critical remarks on John Gerard and the origins of his herbal."-Tomasi & Willis, An Oak Spring Herbaria, p. 84. An uncommonly nice and crisp copy. Bookplates of John Charles Bigham, Viscount Mersey, Bignor Park and Oliver Howard. ? Garrison-Morton 1820-(1st ed. of 1597)-"The most important edition of his book is the second, published by T. Johnson in 1633."

About this Item: Printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton & Richard Whitakers, London, 1636. "When reading Gerard we are wandering in the peace of an Elizabethan garden, with a companion who has => a story for every flower and is full of wise philosophies" (Woodward, p. viii). And indeed, Gerard's herbal is written in "glorious Elizabethan prose, [with] the folk-lore steeping its pages'" (Woodward, p. vii), these factors going a long way towards making it one of the best-known and -loved of the early English herbals. The "herbs" surveyed include plants aquatic and terrestrial, New World and Old, embracing shrubs, plants, and trees, each with a description of its structure and appearance, where it is found (and how it got there), when it is sown and reaped or flowers, its name or names (often with engrossingly exotic etymologies), its "temperature," and its "vertues" or uses (often curious). The story is famous: John Norton, Queen's printer, wished to bring out an English language version of Dodoen's Pemptades of 1583 and hired a certain "Dr. Priest" to do so, but the translator died with the work only partially done. A copy of the manuscript translation made its way into John Gerard's hands and he seized the opportunity, reorganizing the contents, obscuring the previous translator's contribution, incorporating aspects of Rembert and Cruydenboeck's works, and commandeering the result as his own. Gerard abandoned Dodoen's classification, opting for l'Obel's instead, and, in a stroke of ambition and brilliance, illustrated the work with => more than 2500 woodcuts of plants. Many of these are large and all are attractive but more than a few were of plants he himself did not know, thus leading to considerable confusion between illustration and text in the earliest editions, this being third overall and the second with Thomas Johnson's additions and amendments. For both Johnson editions => a large number of the woodcuts were obtained from the famous Leyden printing and publishing firm of Moretus, successors to the highly famous firm of Plantin. As Johnston notes: "Most of the cuts were those used in the botanicals published by Plantin, although a number of new woodcuts were added after drawings by Johnson and Goodyer" (Cleveland Herbal . . . Collections, #185). The large thick volume begins with a handsome engraved title-page by John Payne incorporating a bust of the author, urns with flowers and herbs, and full-length seated images of Dioscorides and Theophrastus and of Ceres and Pomona. Replacing the missing initial blank is a later leaf on which is mounted a large engraving of Gerard. The text is printed in italic, roman, and gothic type. There is, to us, a surprising and very interesting section on grapes and wines. The first part of our caption delights partly in discovery that maize, the "corn" of the U.S., is here called "turkey wheat" ? with further note that you can make bread of it, but that the result is pleasing only to "barbarous" tastes! The entry as a whole shows => Gerard at his characteristic best, at once scientifically systematic and engagingly discursive. Provenance: Neatly lettered name of "W. Younge" at top of title-page; it is tempting to attribute this to William Younge, physician of Sheffield and Fellow of the Linnean Society, whose online correspondence shows him to have been an eager collector of botanical books. Large folio (35.5 cm; 14"). [19 of 20] ff., 1630 [i.e., 1634] pp., [24 of 25] ff. (without the initial and final blank leaves).

About this Item: Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, London, 1636. Thick folio, with more than 2500 woodcut illustrations of plants, as well as numerous other woodcut decorations; contemporary sprinkled calf, spine ornately gilt in wide compartments, red morocco label. A splendid copy of one of the most famous English herbals, here in the second printing of the best edition, Johnson's 'very much enlarged and amended' version which first appeared in 1633. This massive herbal made the barber-surgeon and horticulturist Gerard (1545-1612) famous when its first version appeared in 1597, and it remained highly esteemed for more than 200 years. Gerard's work was based on his experience in his own substantial gardens and as superintendent of several others in and around London, including various properties owned by William Cecil, first Baron Burghley, whose gardens were famous for their variety of plants and trees. Despite claims that his work was derivative, 'Gerard contributed greatly towards the advancement of the knowledge of plants in England, and in his Herball described and illustrated several hundreds of. native plants, including about 182 which were additional to those recorded in earlier works.' (Henrey). In 1632 the successors of Gerard's first publisher commissioned Thomas Johnson (d. 1644), the well-known apothecary and botanist, to prepare a second edition. He did this so well and added so much (a valuable comprehensive historical introduction as well as half again as many woodcuts) that Johnson's version is generally recognised as the "best edition". Johnson 'corrected many of Gerard's more gullible errors, and improved the accuracy of the illustrations by using Plantin's woodcuts.' (Hunt). Arber says that 'the Herball, thus transformed, reached a far higher level than Gerard's own edition'. In this revised form, the book was still being used in botany classes as late as the end of the 18th century. The thousands of charming woodcuts are both large and detailed, and represent an incredible body of work. "The title-page of The Herball is particularly attractive. It was executed by John Payne (1607-1647), one of the most talented engravers of the period. In the upper part of Payne's work we see a luxuriant garden with the goddesses Ceres and Pomona on either side. Below them are the fathers of botany, Theophrastus and Dioscorides, while in the lower sec tion two imposing vases filled with flowers surround a portrait of Gerard, who is shown facing in the opposite direction to that of the portrait by Rogers. The vase on the left is crowned with a bunch of bananas as a tribute to Johnson. "One of the most significant additions made by Johnson was his chap-ter on the 'Maracot' or 'Grandilla' as it was called at the time (actually the passion-flower). He includes a full page illustration (p. 1592) and refers the reader to Monardes for more information on this exotic species. In the long preface Johnson traces the history of the botanical sciences, analyzing the contributions of celebrated figures from the mythical King Solomon to William Turner. He closes with some critical remarks on John Gerard and the origins of his herbal." (Tomasi & Willis, An Oak Spring Herbaria, p. 84). Provenance: Armorial bookplate of "Walford" and 17th-century signature of Elizabeth Taylor of Wimbish Hall (Essex). The engraved title page mounted, with tiny losses at corners and inner margin, dedication leaf slightly soiled and stained, a few minor spots and stains; binding neatly repaired at joints and extremities; in overall excellent condition.

About this Item: 1633. GERARD, JOHN. The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes. London: By Adam Islip, Joice Norton, and Richard Whitakers, 1633. Folio. Engraved title, [36], 30, 29-30, 29-1630, [48] p. Illustrated with over 2500 woodcuts of plants. Early nineteenth-century panelled calf, neatly rebacked retaining original fully gilt spine. Title lightly soiled but complete and free of any repair, blank fore- and bottom edges of A4-5 neatly extended, a few marginal tears neatly closed, intermittant faint dampstain in top margin becoming a bit more noticeable toward the end of the text, marginal repair to 7A1 (index) costing several page numbers, blank lower corner of 7B5 replaced. A very good and most attractive copy, without the extensive repairing and sophistication that nearly always comes with early English herbals. With an ownership inscription and cost dated 1634. The first printing of the second and "best" edition of John Gerard's great English herbal, very extensively corrected and enlarged by Thomas Johnson from the original edition of 1597. John Gerard (1545-1612) was a barber-surgeon and horticulturist who based his work on Rembert Dodoens' earlier Stirpium Historiae Pemptades Sex and on his own extensive gardening experience. Thirty-six years later, when a new and more accurate edition was called for, Thomas Johnson, a well-known apothecary and botanist, was chosen for the task. Johnson wrote a lengthy new preface, "corrected many of Gerard's more gullible errors, and improved the accuracy of the illustrations by using Plantin's woodcuts." (Hunt) Johnson's improvements were so great that "Johnson's Gerard" quickly became the desired edition, and a second printing was done in 1636. Early English herbals have always been keenly sought by collectors, and they are normally found either imperfect or heavily repaired and sophisticated. The present copy is complete and with relatively minor restoration. Hunt 223; Henrey 155; Nissen 698; STC 11751. Seller Inventory # 13230

About this Item: London Adam Islip Joice Norton and Richard Whitakers, 1633. Second edition. Folio. [38], 1630, [48]pp., engraved title-page by John Payne, numerous woodcuts of plants in the text, bound without first and last blanks as usual, title-page with small repair, text clean and perfect; eighteenth century russia rebacked preserving spine, corners repaired, a most attractive example. Second edition of Johnson's enlarged version. The herbalist John Gerard (c.1545-1612), born in Cheshire, was employed as gardener to William Cecil, Lord Burghley. A senior member of the Barber-surgeons' company, Gerard spent his adult life in Holborn, where he cultivated a garden. A catalogue of this garden was published as Catalogus arborum fructium ac plantarum tam indigenarum, quam exoticarum, in horto Johannis Gerardi nascentium (London, 1596). A great rarity, this work is considered the first printed complete catalogue of any one garden, in any language. However Gerard's fame rests on this great Herball published in London in 1597. Thomas Johnson's 1633 edition of Gerard's Herball is 'sometimes referred to as 'Gerard emaculatus' or 'Johnson's Gerard' . There had been an interval of thirty-six years since the original edition was issued and during this time no other herbal had appeared in England. It was time, therefore, for a more up-to-date work to be published . Thomas Johnson, a London apothecary, was asked to undertake the task . Notwithstanding the short time at his disposal Johnson produced an edition that was noteworthy for its many corrections, improvements and additions . As in the case of the Herball of 1597 most of the wood-blocks for the illustrations were obtained 'from beyond the seas'. They had been used previously at Antwerp by Plantin for the works of de l'Obel, Dodoens, and de l'Ecluse' (Henrey). The principle reason for the speed with which Johnson prepared his updated edition of Gerard's Herball was that he was keen for it to be issued before John Parkinson's Theatrum Botanicum. Johnson was successful in his upstaging of Parkinson for, though entered in the Stationer's register in 1634, Parkinson's work was held off till 1640 in the knowledge that Johnson's production would sate the market for some time. Gerard's Herball, describing and illustrating several hundred flowering plants, including 182 species which had not been described in earlier works, can be considered one of most significant early-modern English botanical publications and endured as a primary source of reference into the eighteenth century.

His Herball, a 1,484 page illustrated book, was first published in 1597. It was a largely unacknowledged translation of Rembert Dodoen's herbal, itself published in 1554, and popular in Dutch, Latin, French, and in other English translations. This revised and enlarged third edition, the second by Thomas Johnson, corrects many of Gerard's errors and adds 800 new species and 700 woodcuts. This third edition is the most complete edition of Johnson and Gerard's work and is a landmark in natural history.

About this Item: London: Printed by Adam Islip, Joice Norton and Richard Whitakers, 1633., 1633. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. folio. pp. 19 p.l. (incl. engraved title by J.Payne which incorporates a portrait of the author in the lower panel above the imprint), 1630 [i.e. 1634], [44]. lacking initial & final blanks & 2 leaves of index (R-S). over c2766 woodcuts of plants in the text. woodcut ornaments & initials. 19th century calf, rebacked with spine mounted, corners renewed (covers rubbed, engraved title cut to neatline at lower & outer edge & mounted, 2 leaves of index cropped one torn with slight loss, otherwise a very good clean copy although the margins in general are closely trimmed). Second and Best Edition (first: 1597), the first to be edited by London apothecary and botanist, Thomas Johnson, who contributed extensived revisions and additions. "Gerard is perhaps the best remembered of all the English herbalists." (Garrison & Morton). A barber surgeon, he supervised the gardens of Lord Burleigh and Theobolds and kept his own famous garden in Holborn for twenty years, for which he issued a list of plants cultivated, the first complete catalogue ever published of the contents of a single garden. According to Arber and the Osler catalogue, Gerard used as the basis of his herbal a translation of Dodoens begun by Robert Priest, but without any acknowledgment, while according to William T.Stearn (DSB), "to what extent Gerard was indebted to Priest s work is quite uncertain the Herball as published was on the whole so massive a task that it seems charitable to credit [Gerard] with the whole. It remains a valuable source of information about the plants available in western European gardens at the end of the sixteenth century and about the Latin and vernacular names then applied to them." The 1597 edition was illustrated mainly with woodblocks obtained by the publisher Norton from Nikolaus Bassée of Frankfurt, who had used them in the German herbal of Tabernaemontanus (Theodorus of Bergzabern), 1588-91. Several other cuts were added by Gerard, notably one which is considered to be the earliest depiction of the potato, which Gerard believed was native to Virginia. In his revised edition, Johnson enlarged the text to include a total of 2850 plants, added a comprehensive historical introduction, "corrected many of Gerard s more gullible errors, and improved the accuracy of the illustrations by using Plantin s woodcuts." (Hunt). Gerard s herbal is listed in European Americana because it includes numerous descriptions and illustrations of American plants, including the previously mentioned potato. Alden II 633/39.

About this Item: Adam Islip Norton and Richard Whitakers, 1633. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 2nd Edition. GERARD, John. The Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes. Gathered by Iohn Gerarde of London Master in Chirurgerie, Very much Enlarged and Amended by Thomas Iohnson Citizen and Apothecarye of London London, Adam Islip Norton and Richard Whitakers, 1633. Folio. Title-page, pp. (xxxvi) 1630 (xliv, i.e., 44 out of 48 original pages); missing initial blank and final blank (as usual) and two leaves at the end: 6z6 (from the Table of English Names , supplied with two leaves written in a late C18th or early 19th hand), 7b5 (the final leaf with errata). Engraved title-page laid down, lower outer corner torn, affecting the illustration only marginally. Mainly Roman and Italic letter, little Greek and Gothic, very sporadic Hebrew. Head- and tail-pieces, decorated initials (both historiated and floriated). More than 2500 beautiful and accurate botanical illustrations. Early owner s autograph on verso of second leaf Wilfrid Browne . A few extensive tears without loss: 2×6, 3h3 (extensive), 3m6 (extensive but repaired with paper reinforces) and 5e3. Occasional ink spotting and candle burnings throughout, occasional age yellowing and wear to margins, otherwise in very good condition. A thoroughly used book that has remained surprisingly clean and functional. Rebound in modern brown skin over boards; spine in five compartments divided by double sewing support, with gilt-stamped title. Notwithstanding some flaws, a good copy of an important work in the history of botany. Second edition, perhaps the best and most complete of all. A beautifully and fully engraved title-page by John Payne. This is Johnson s enlarged version of the botanist s major work, first published in 1597. The London apothecary Thomas Johnson (c.1595-1644) revised the original work, making it possible to distinguish his additions. This edition brought a new and more scholarly focus to Gerard s Herball. Indeed, it was greatly esteemed and reprinted in 1636. It is extensively illustrated and Johnson drew several of the diagrams himself. The woodcuts included in the first edition were printed from wood-blocks obtained from Frankfurt, which had been used to illustrate the Eicones plantarum of Taberaemmontanus (1590). Johnson supplemented these with superior illustrations from the stock of Antwerp s famous printer Plantin. Gerard contributed greatly towards the advancement of the knowledge of plants in England, and in his Herball he described and illustrated several hundreds of our native flowering plants, including about 182 which were additional to those recorded in earlier works (Henrey, p. 47).
