Anonymus. Flora Alpina - Original Herbal / Herbarium of the late 18th/ early 19t

Anonymus. Flora Alpina - Original Herbal / Herbarium of the late 18th/ early 19th century containing 36 original specimens of alpine flowers. Europe, Privately collected, c.1790-1810. 20 x 25 cm. 39 pages with 36 full pages of tipped in specimens. Original wonderfully decorative vellum from an obviously skillful bindery with gilt floral elements and lettering. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The endpapers and pastedowns mildly stained. The interior and specimens otherwise in fantastic condition. Please ask for professional images of the whole volume.

Original Herbaria are extremely scarce and usually are not in similar aesthetically gorgeous bindings like this one. A collection of natural plants that has endured approximately 200 years in a magnificent binding usually tells more of a story than the one we have on offer here. Unfortunately this Herbarium contains not a single written word and so we are floating in interpretation and have only the gatherer/collector of the plants and the wonderful binder to thank for this beautiful masterpiece of preserved time.
