ADANSON (Michel). Families of plants. In Paris, chez Vincent, 1763. 2 vol. in-8, [2] f., CCCXXV-189 p. + [1] f., 24 p., [2] f., 640 p., contemporary marbled havana calf, spine with 5 nerves, red title-piece, green tome-piece, gilt fleurons and fillets, gilt fillet on the edges, red edges (tears and epidermis on the boards, 3 dull corners, tear on an edge of volume 1 touching the margins). First edition of this important botanical treatise in which the author proposes a new classification of plants. It is illustrated with an engraved folding plate (uniformly browned). It is also curious from the point of view of the spelling used, arguing for a simplification, as evidenced by the subtitle of the first volume: "Contenant une préface istorike sur l'état ancien & actuel de la Botanike, & une téorie de cette science". Long old annotations on pp. 160, 166, and 190 to 192. (Pritzel, 21).
