Peters, W. C. H. Ed."
Naturwissenschaftliche Reise nach Mossambique auf Befehl seiner Majestat des Kunigs Friedrich Wilhelm Iv in den Jahren 1842-1848 ausgefuhrt. Vi. Botanik. [Complete]."
Berlin, Georg Reimer, 1862-1864. Two volumes in two. 4to (32.1 x 24.3 cm). 610 pp. [xxii, iv, 304; 305-584]; 61[1-48; 49-60, 48A] engraved plates with captions. Uniform green quarter cloth over green paper boards with printed label on the spines. The complete botanical results of an expedition to the then little explored southeastern coasts of Africa, opposite Madagascar and now known as Mocambique (Mozambique, German: Mosambik). The tropical to subtropical flora has many endemic elements and therefore it does not come as a surprise that this early exploration yielded many new species. This part was written by a host of specialist, including (alphabetically) N. J. Andersson; J. O. Boeckeler, C. A. Bolle, A. C. H. Braun, C. A. F. Garcke, J. K. Hasskarl, F. W. Klatt, J. F. Klotzsch, C. S. Kunth, K. Muller and H. G. Reichenbach. Some light rubbing to board edges, a dampstain in a corner of one plate (apparently from before binding), but in all a very good, clean and unmarked copy. Cat. Bm(Nh) Iv, p. 1555; Nissen Zbi, 3139; Stafleu and Cowan, 7759."
