We are pleased to offer a selection of prints from “La Botanique Mise a La Portee de tout le Monde” by Nicolas François Regnault with most of the engravings by his wife, Genevieve de Nangis Regnault, published in Paris, 1774. These originally hand colored prints copper engravings described by Blunt as “Perhaps the most impressive French Botanical work of the period.”

The work includes both useful & decorative plants, including the newly discovered potato which Genevieve de Nangis Regnault described in an engaging & typically French manner as “possibly the only good thing that ever came out of America.”

Each print is on high-quality, chain-lined paper, with strong plate marks. Most sheets bear watermarks. There is an occasional very light fox mark, usually in the margins. Each print measures approximately 13 inches by 18 1/2 inches, and is accompanied by the original descriptive text & a copy of the title page.  Please inspect the images carefully as they are quite accurate.  These prints are in excellent condition, and over 230 years old.

The selection is of the topmost decorative prints from the entire work, and in size it is close to the Besler at a fraction of the cost.
