Two volumes, thick 12mo, pp xxxii, 446; xvi, 482, illustrated with three engraved plates (one folding), two folding tables and many hundreds of charming small woodcut illustrations within the text, a little age-toning, a slight bruise to the base of some pages in the second volume, but generally clean and unmarked. Bound in a contemporary full calf, scuffed and rubbed with wear at the corners, but still sound, marbled endpapers and speckled edges; the first volume lacks the half-title and the hinge at the title page is a little cracked but very firm; the second volume has an early neat repair to the half-title. Still an attractive set.[Gilibert (1741 - 1814) was a French politician, botanist, freemason, medical doctor and member of the Academy of Sciences, Humanities and Arts of Lyon.]
