Flora Medica

 

Flora Medica by George Spratt

Introduced by Darren Bloodworth of C Arden Booksellers, Hay-on-Wye

This is a scarce 1st edition published in 1829-30 that we currently have in stock at C Arden Booksellers in Hay.

George Spratt (1784-1840), was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons and active in the Medico-Botanical Society of London.

Flora Medica contains plates of various medicinal plants admitted into the London, Dublin, and Edinburgh Pharmacopoeias; with their history, botanical descriptions and properties described.

It is a two volume set complete with 184 fine hand-coloured plates. Handsomely bound in full leather it has a cross hatched design on original boards. More recently, a splendid job has been done in giving the volumes new spines.
