This Folio edition of Redoute's work is a facsimile of the original edition, and accompanied by a fourth supplementary volume.
Created between 1974 and 1978, the work contains 169 full page colour plates, plus a frontispiece of Redoute, and a colour frontis dedication plate. Volume 4 has a further 11 plates, bringing the total illustrated plates to 182.
The illustrations are accompanied by text and classification by Thory. I have included frontis etc. in the count of full page plates. Other book sellers sometimes only count the plates involving the Roses (ie. 169). This copy is a complete copy!
The fourth volume includes biographies and essays with an abridged English translation of the original work.
This was published in four volumes, and limited to 510 copies. This copy has never been bound, so is offered as a collection of loose gathers, still with the printer's edge marks (it is untrimmed). Perfect for framing, or binding to your own tastes. It seems to have been a publisher's "back stock" awaiting ordering before being bound.

122, (iv) pp 59 plates
125, (iii) pp. 54 plates.

This set has remained packaged in the original printers brown paper. It is in fine condition. There is one text page with a small ink mark to the edge (see images). There is a very slight toning to the edges of the pages.
Complete copies of this facsimile are scarce, and usually offered for several thousand euros.
Please note - this set of sheets weighs approx 20kg unpacked. To pack safely, it will be sent as two registered packages of approx 11kg each. Hence the high shipping rate.
