Beiträge zur Botanik. Erster Band (all published).
. Leipzig, Verlag von Wilh. Engelmann, 1844, 8°, VIII, 242 pp., 9 lith. plates, ccontemp. card board; Schleiden's personal copy.. First Edition - Schleiden's copy, with his ownership stamp on the title and his bookplate! - Fine copy of Schleiden's collected papers reprints 14 previously published papers, including his "Beiträge zur Phytogenesis". - Acting upon his belief that plants represented aggregates of individual cells, Schleiden published a study of the vegetable cell, beginning with the nucleus (discovered by Robert Brown in 1832), and proceeding to a discussion of its role in the formation of cells. Schleiden's "watch-glass" theory of cell formation was wrong-he believed that they crystallized in a formative liquid containing sugar, gum and mucous-but it focused attention on the problem of cell reproduction and provided a testable hypothesis. More significant was Schleiden's insistence that plants consisted entirely of cells and cell products. - Garrison-Morton 112. PMM 307a (both Beiträge zur Phytogenesis (1st.Ed. 1838))
