Regnault, Nicolas Francois (1746-1810)
“La Botanique Mise a la Portee de Tout le Monde”, published in Paris 1774-1780, was a rare French herbal written by Nicolas Francois Regnault and illustrated by his wife, Genevieve de Nangis-Regnault. These copper plate etchings include a description of each plant and their use for medicinal and cuisine purposes. This economic botany and herbal has been called the most impressive botanical book of the period by Wilfrid Blunt, Art Historian.
Prints from this publication are rare and feature very nice original hand coloring.
