Content: Very good content (bright, tight and clean, some light foxing - as shown).
Illustrations: Complete with the title vignette and the nice hand-colored folding plate that shows the rose of Jericho in its botanical dissection: the blooming, the dry, and the rose of Jericho that has risen again in the water.

The book: A scarce and sought-after first French edition of "La Rose de Jericho", the meticulous study on the Resurrection Plant - commonly known as the Rose of Jericho - by David Hess. This edition, beautifully translated by Isabelle de Montolieu, offers an in-depth exploration of this fascinating plant, known for its incredible ability to "resurrect" from a dried state when exposed to water. Especially notable is the inclusion of a hand-colored folding plate that meticulously dissects the botanical stages of the rose: from its bloom, to its dry state, and its astonishing rehydration in water. A remarkable and rare find, particularly with the binding's provenance - the gilt monogram of Frances Anne Vane, Marchioness of Londonderry, is elegantly showcased at the head of the spine.
