Paris, J. Rothschild, 1878. Large 8vo (26.2 x 17.3 cm). viii, 348 pp.; 40 fine chromolithographed plates and 228 illustrations in the text. Contemporary half leather binding with decorated gilt spine and marbled boards. Red endpapers. All edges gilt.

First edition of this sought-after work on palms. The chromolithographs are by the famous botanical artist Pieter Joseph de Pannemaeker (1832-1904) thus of a very high standard. Count Oswald de Kerchove de Denterghem (1844-1906) was the third Count in a row with a love for botany, following in his father's and grandfather's footsteps. He published several works on palms and orchids, besides having a political career. This specific title is sought after for the beautiful plates, and is quite rare now. Some light spotting, plates generally in good condition. A very nice copy. Nissen BBI, 1032; Stafleu and Cowan, 3590.
