Abstract

Martius's "Historia naturalis palmarum" is a broadsheet work that appeared in two sister editions or emissions, the one in München with Martius's private imprint and the indication of a Leipzig bookseller, the other with the imprint of another Leipzig bookseller. All ten instalment covers bore the title "Genera et species palmarum", even though the tenth instalment included the title pages with the definitive title. The contents of all instalments are made clear, apparently for the first time, from the complete collection of their covers in the "Laboratoire de Phanérogamie", Paris. The tenth instalment seems to have been out in 1850.
