Abstract

A description is given of the bibliographical format of the regular instalments of Vols. 1-71, 1818-1888 of the German journal "Flora." The publication schedule of those regular instalments under the successive editors of this period is described. Study of all evidence about the frequency of publication of the regular instalments leads to the conclusion that they really were published at the intervals indicated by the dates in their head-titles. During the editorship of D. H. Hoppe and A. E. Fürnrohr (1818-1861) there was a very regular schedule of four fascicles per month. When G. A. W. Herrich-Schäffer was editor (1861-1871) the intervals did not follow any regular schedule. During J. Singer's term as editor (1871-1888) a regular schedule of three fascicles at fixed intervals per month was largely maintained. After a discussion of all presently available evidence, it is concluded that the head-title dates of the regular instalments, for the present time, can be accepted as the dates of effective publication for nomenclatural purposes. There are several indications that the head-title dates may be unreliable, especially during the periods with regular publication schedules, but it is not yet possible to replace a questionable head-title date by an established correct one. The problem of the publication dates of the appendices of "Flora" is discussed separately. An inventory of the appendices is given, preceded by a survey of publications related to "Flora" although not true appendices. Information about the dates of the appendices belonging to Vols. 1-15, 1819-1832 is very limited. From Vol. 16, 1833 onwards the publication of the appendices is usually announced in the regular instalments, and the former can be dated with the help of the head-title dates of the latter. In the Annex a detailed bibliographical analysis of Vols. 26-71, 1843-1888 is given.
