Flora atlantica : sive historia plantarum quae in Atlante, agro tunetano et algeriensi crescunt by René Louiche Desfontaines( Book )

14 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in Latin and English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A member, and later president, of the Académie des Sciences, French botanist and doctor René Louiche Desfontaines (1750-1833) spent the years 1783-5 on an expedition to North Africa. During his time in Tunisia and Algeria, he collected over a thousand plant specimens: more than three hundred genera were new to European naturalists at this time. Having succeeded Le Monnier in the chair of botany at the Jardin du Roi in 1786, Desfontaines helped found the Institut de France following the Revolution and published his two-volume Flora atlantica in Latin in 1798-9. A lavishly illustrated second edition appeared in four volumes in 1800. Combining its two volumes of plates into one, this reissue will give modern researchers an insight into the promulgation of pioneering plant science. Volume 2 contains classes 14 to 24 in the Linnaean system of plant taxonomy, from Didynamia to Cryptogamia

4 editions published between 1818 and 1859 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Second issue of the first edition. This publication is the most important work relating to American trees prior to the 20th century. It is the product of the efforts of two of the greatest naturalists to work in 19th-century America, Francois A. Michaux and Thomas Nuttall. Michaux's work is based on his extensive travels in the eastern half of America, and those of his father, from the 1790s on. Both men were friendly with Jefferson and other leading figures, who aided them in their work and travels. The first edition of his work was published in Paris in 1817-19, although bearing a Philadelphia imprint. The plates were executed by the great French flower painter, Redouté, and his associate, Bessa and shipped to America. Later the copperplates were sent over as well. The sheets of the first effort at reprinting the work were destroyed by fire, but the copper plates were separately stored and thus survived to be employed in later editions in Philadelphia. There are numerous American editions using these plates. The first American edition of Michaux was issued at New Harmony in 1841 and reissued with cancel title in Cincinnati in 1842. This second edition was reissued using the same plates until 1856, when a fire destroyed the text plates but not the Redouté coppers. The third American edition began in 1857 and was also reissued several times. Thomas Nuttall was one of the most intrepid American naturalists of his day, travelling extensively in the Mississippi Valley and the Far West in the 1820s and '30s to gather botanical specimens. His work, designed to supplement that of Michaux, covers eastern species overlooked by the Frenchman, and new species Nuttall had gathered in the Midwest and West. His work was first published in Philadelphia in 1842-49. The more up-to-date method of using colored lithographs for the plates was employed in the Nuttall volumes, since the publisher did not have engraved plates in stock, as was the case with the Michaux work. The Nuttall was also reprinted a number of times, in uniform editions with the Michaux
