- Arnold Arboretum, p. 697; Pritzel 9448; Stafleu & Cowan 14887; Stock 3004. First and only edition of a comprehensive work on Rosaceae by the Austrain botanist Leopold Trattinnick (1764-1849). It was originally published as the first four volumes in a series intended to give an overview of the entire plant kingdom with the title Synodus botanica, but it "was relinquished for lack of sufficient subscribers and he [Heubner] confined himself to the issue of a monograph of Rosaceae in 4 vols." (Stock). The first two volumes give detailed taxonomic descriptions of species from the genus Rosa, and the following two cover various genera including: Dalibarda, Geum, Potentilla, Rubus and Waldsteinia.A very attractive copy.
