First edition of Anslijns description of plants and herbs used in the Dutch pharmacology for physicians, pharmacists and herbalists. Anslijn explains in his introduction that he also intended it for the benefit of the owners of his beautifully illustrated work then still in progress, Afbeelding der artsenij-gewassen, welke in de Nederlandsche apotheek als zodanig vermeld zijn. Naar de beste uitlandsche afbeeldingen getekend en op steen gebragt (4 parts with 265 hand-coloured lithographed plates of ca. 33.5 x 24 cm), issued in 4 parts by the same publisher from 1832 to 1838. In fact it is a reworked and augmented edition of his earlier manual: Kruidkundig leerboek, inzonderheid voor hen, die tot de artsenijmengkunde worden opgeleid (Amsterdam, J.C. Sepp & zonen, 1829).
Spine slightly damaged and repaired. Stafleu & Cowan supp. 1, 19290 (1 copy).
