Descripción

FIRST EDITION. 4 to. Orig. boards with large printed label on cover. viii, 58 pp. Eighteen lithographed plates. Ownership signature of E. Meyer dated 1830 on the front fly-leaf, likely the German botanist, Ernst Meyer (1791--1858), professor of botany at Königsberg and author of a four-volume history of botany (1854-57). Spotty foxing, a bit worn; a good to very good copy. "Purkinje (1787-1869) is one of the great geniuses in the field of biological discovery." (Nordenskiöld). As a master microscopist, one of Purkinje's earliest studies with a simple microscope (he acquired a compound Plössl achromatic in 1832) was that of the anthers of flowering plants. Here the role of cells in the differentiation of plant tissues and an anticipation of Robert Brown's discovery of pollen movement and the cell's nucleus are given. ".Purkinje studied plant structures, mainly the elastic fibrous cells of the anthers and the form of the pollen and spores in relation to the mechanism of their dispersion. In his extensive comparative study, combining anatomy with physiology, he distinguished structural types and drew attention to mechanical factors and the role of cells in the differentiation of plant tissues." (D.S.B.). Brown acknowledges Purkinje, Meyer, and Brongniart in his 1833 memoir, but they attached so little importance to the presence of the nucleus, that it remained for Brown to definitively announce the cell nucleus.
