About this Item: Printed by Tho. Cotes, London, 1640. FIRST EDITION. 358 x 235 mm. (14 x 9 1/2"). 10 p.l., 1755 (i.e. 1743) pp, 1 (errata) leaf. FIRST EDITION. VERY APPEALING CONTEMPORARY CALF, sides simply ruled in blind, spine very densely and handsomely gilt in compartments with four distinctive mirrored semicircles of massed floral tools, the remainder of the compartments with similar, even denser, massed tools and in some cases large gilt circles, morocco label, later end papers. ELABORATE ENGRAVED TITLE PAGE AND MORE THAN 2,700 WOODCUTS OF BOTANICAL SPECIES IN THE TEXT. 17th c. signature of Jonathan Jackson and 18th c. signature of Jonathan Knowles in top margin of title page. Very bottom on spine worn away, with edge of text block partially exposed, raised bands and head of spine somewhat rubbed, with small superficial cracks in half a dozen places, corners a little bent and covers somewhat marked, but an entirely sound, beautifully decorated, and generally very attractive contemporary binding with joints only slightly rubbed. Title pages neatly reattached and a bit soiled, a few paper flaws resulting in slight loss of blank corners, a dozen trivial rust or wormholes, one leaf with 2 1/2" chip out of fore edge (up to, but not touching, text), one contemporary note in ink in lower right margin, last few leaves of index darkened (five of these leaves with small holes in fore margin), final two leaves neatly backed, a few other minor flaws; nevertheless, quite excellent internally and in relative terms especially fine, with good margins and particularly clean and crisp leaves. AN EXTREMELY WELL-PRESERVED COPY of a large and heavy book that is almost always found ravaged and defective from heavy use. This is a particularly agreeable copy of one of the most important botanical books in English, perhaps the last great herbal published in England that had as its motive the seeking of a wider understanding of plants as a way toward the advancement of medicine. John Parkinson (1567-1650) was a practicing apothecary with a private botanical garden when he was appointed apothecary to James I. After the publication of his first book, "Paradisi in Sole," he was named "Botanicus Regius Primarius" by Charles I. The present work contains Parkinson's own descriptions and observations as well as those of his predecessors on nearly 3,800 species of plants (as compared to 2,850 in Johnson's Gerard of 1633). The work "remained the most complete English treatise on the subject until the time of Ray." (DNB).

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: London, Thomas Cotes, 1649. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. THEATRUM BOTANICUM THE THEATRE OF PLANTS 1640; John Parkinson; First and Only Edition; London, Thomas Cotes; Folio Rebound Leather, Sizer Bindery; Profusely Illustrated; 20/1754 Pages; w9.3xh13.8"; Extremely Rare!!! Great For any Plant/Herbalism Fan or Collector. Great Gift Idea; Landmark Work!!! ATTRIBUTES: Folio cloth cover design, dark purple/maroon leather binding/corners, Gold labeling to spine, Brilliant vignette title page with numerous scenes, 2,700 woodcut illustrations throughout, Early modern English on handmade paper, Some hand color plants in a small folded newspaper booklet!!! SUMMARY: His Theatrum Botanicum (The Botanical Theatre) described 3,800 plants and focused more on medicinal plants. It became the standard for English apothecaries for 100 years. He sought information and specimens from correspondents throughout the world and created a work based on observation and data collection rather than information based on older works. 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. William Marshall s elaborate frontispiece for Theatrum Botanicum is divided into three registers. At the top and bottom, allegorical figures appear against a backdrop of fantastical garden imagery. The rhinoceros in the upper left may refer to the coat of arms of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries founded by John Parkinson in 1617. Parkinson, whose portrait appears at the bottom, also served on the Court of Assistants, the Society s governing body. The fantastical garden imagery and the presence of Adam in the middle register, reflect Parkinson s belief that the botanical world was an expression of divine creation and his conviction that through gardens, man could recapture something of Eden. BACKGROUND: John Parkinson (1567 1650; buried 6 August 1650) was the last of the great English herbalists and one of the first of the great English botanists. He was apothecary to James I and a founding member of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries in December 1617, and was later Royal Botanist to Charles I. He is known for two monumental works, Paradisi in Sole Paradisus Terrestris (Park-in-Sun's Terrestrial Paradise, 1629), which generally describes the proper cultivation of plants; and Theatrum Botanicum (The Botanical Theatre or Theatre of Plants, 1640), the most complete and beautifully presented English treatise on plants of its time. One of the most eminent gardeners of his day, he kept a botanical garden at Long Acre in Covent Garden, today close to Trafalgar Square, and maintained close relations with other important English and Continental botanists, herbalists and plantsmen. CONDITION: Condition is Fair/Good.

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).
