About this Item: Thomas Cotes, London, 1640. Folio, with elaborately engraved title-page and about 2700 woodcut illustrations in the text; in an attractive later binding of smooth polished calf. An especially good copy of this famous and beautiful English herbal, 'one of the two main pillars of botany in England till the time of Ray' (James Edward Smith). The largest herbal in English, this was also the last great medicinally-based plant study, by an author who thought of himself as first and foremost an apothecary.Early botanical works were frequently illustrated with original woodcuts, and this book is a marvellous example of the impressive beauty that the relatively nave method of woodcut illustration conveys in a botanical work, with a flower portrayed in line in singular contrast to the accompanying botanical description: altogether two thousand seven hundred woodblocks were individually cut for this massive herbal, which describes more than four thousand plants, most of them with medicinal properties.Parkinson had given notice of his intention to compile an herbal in his Paradisus terrestris of 1629, but was delayed by the publication of the second Johnson edition of Gerarde's Herball, in 1636. This delay meant that Parkinson's work had time to grow much larger than originally planned, and on publication it included about one thousand more plants than Gerarde could, and describes many species not previously recorded.Natural history collecting in exotic lands was actively pursued from the earliest period of botanical study, and the earliest exploring ships were fitted out with special compartments for the transportation of animals and plants. Parkinson noted in his Paradisi in sole of 1629 that he had obtained a specimen of the "Scilla alba" in the manner of the day - which meant gathering with other collectors at the quay to meet the returning ships, and to purchase rare specimens directly from the sailors.John Parkinson (1567-1650), a London pharmacist, received the title of Royal Apothecary from James I. Later, Charles I appointed him as his chief botanist ("Botanicus Regius Primarius"). Parkinson had a private garden in Long Acre 'well stored with rarities' (Theatrum, p. 609). Work on his herbal was helped by notes and unpublished material by the French botanist Matthias de l'Obel who had lived in north London in the last years of his life. Provenance: With the armorial bookplate of "Brodie of Brodie" (chief of the clan Brodie, Brodie Castle, N.E. Scotland) A very good copy, the text clean and fresh. Seller Inventory # 3409278

About this Item: Printed by Tho. Cotes, London, 1640. Hardcover. Condition: Used: Acceptable. First edition. Folio, 34.5 x 24 cm. [20] 1755 pp. Lacking engraved title, final 3 pages of errata. Rebound in modern leather. Fine binding. 5 raised bands. Gilt flourish and title to spine. Restoration to title page. Some toning, spotting and marginal soiling/staining. Offsetting to woodcuts. Dampstaining, corrosion to first leaves with loss to text. Occasional old ink corrections and marginalia. Final leaf remounted. Parkinson held the position of Botanicus Regius Primarius to Charles I and Apothecary to James I. Parkinson's Theatrum Botanicum is the largest of the English herbals (nearly double that of the first edition of Gerard's). "While Parkinson's reputation was established by the appearance of his Paradisus in 1629, the latter was overshadowed by the publication in 1640 of what was his much greater work, the Theatrum Botanicum . This digest attempted the description of nearly 4,000 plants, almost 1000 more than were contained in Johnson's edition of Gerard. The descriptions in many instances are new and great care was exercised to secure accuracy in indicating localities."- Green. The Botanicum was the most complete and beautifully presented English botanical treatise of its day. "One of the two main pillars of botany in England at the time of Ray" (Henrey). Parkinson's work, although based on Matthias L'Obel's works, was in large part original. It was the first work to describe 33 native plants, 13 of which grew near Parkinson's Middlesex home. Some of these plants, such as the Welsh poppy, the Strawberry Tree and the Lady's Slipper, were very common but had gone unnoticed or at least unrecorded. He intended the book to be a reliable guide for apothecaries, and it remained so for more than a hundred years after his death.

Theatrum Botanicum: the Theater of Plants. Or,: PARKINSON, John.

About this Item: London: Printed by Tho. Cotes, 1640, 1640. Folio (347 x 217 mm). Recent brown calf, titles gilt to purple label to spine, raised bands, buff endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Minor rubbing to extremities, a couple of small scratches to boards, top edge dust toned, occasional faint browning to margins, fore edge of book block rippled, minor marginal damp-staining to final few pages; an excellent copy. Engraved additional title by William Marshall, numerous woodcut illustrations in the text. First edition of the second work of John Parkinson (1566/7-1650), apothecary, herbalist, and botanicus regius primarius to Charles I. The Theatrum describes some 3,800 plants, divided into seventeen "tribes", based partly on their medicinal qualities and partly on habitat. It describes 28 new species never previously mentioned before, two of the more famous being the strawberry tree and the lady's slipper orchid. Parkinson's is the most complete and authoritative English herbal of its era, superior to Johnson's edition of Gerard's Herbal; of particular value is the almost entire incorporation of Caspar Bauhin's Pinax, for its synonyms. John Ray termed it "the most full and comprehensive book of that subject extant", and frequently quoted from it (Raven, 272).
