(1.)   Harvey, William H., Sonder, Otto Wilhelm, &, Thiselton-Dyer, William T.     [ 2014 ]
Flora Capensis. Being a Systematic Description of the Plants of the Cape Colony, Caffraria and Port Natal, and Neighbouring Territorries. 7 Volume Set in 10 Pieces
This seminal publication began life as a collaborative effort between the Irish botanist William Henry Harvey (1811-66) and his German counterpart Otto Wilhelm Sonder (1812-81). Relying on many contributors of specimens and descriptions from colonial South Africa - and building on the foundations laid by Carl Peter Thunberg, whose Flora Capensis (1823) is also reissued in this series - they published the first three volumes between 1860 and 1865. These were reprinted unchanged in 1894, and from 1896 the project was supervised by William Thiselton-Dyer (1843-1928), director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. A final supplement appeared in 1933. Reissued now in ten parts, this significant reference work catalogues more than 11,500 species of plant found in South Africa. Volume 1 opens with a preface which clarifies the project''s original scope.
