Enumeratio Plantarum in Insula Formosa sponte crescentium hucusque rite cognitarum adjectis descriptionibus et figuris specierum pro regione novarum. [AND] Flora montana Formosae, an enumeration of the plants found on Mt. Morrison, the Central Chain, and other mountainous regions of Formosa at altitudes of 3.000-13.000 ft. [AND] Materials for a flora of Formosa, supplementary notes to the Enumeratio Plantarum Formosanarum and Flora Montana Formosae. [Complete].
Tokyo, The College of Science, Imperial University, 1906-1912. Three volumes in three. Large 8vo (25.5 x 18.7 cm). 1,435 pp. [I(1906): 704; II(1908): 260; III(1911-1912): 471], one coloured folded map, 58 engraved plates, several text illustrations. Later uniform blue paper-covered boards with printed title mounted on the front boards.= Despite the three different titles these works clearly belong together, as they all deal with the botany of modern day Taiwan. The first part discusses the low altitudes (below 3,000 ft). The second, by Hayata alone, is on plants from higher elevations on this mountainous island. This area was little explored, and therefore Hayama added many new species. With 41 plates, this part is the most richly illustrated. The third part, also by Hayata, contains additions and corrections to the first two parts, and includes many new taxa too. A complete set such as this one is rare. About eight plates in the first part have some marginal repairs with Japanese paper, but otherwise in very good condition. Stafleu and Cowan, 5678, 2497, 2500.
