SULLIVANT, William Starling (1803-1873): The Musci and Hepaticae of the United States East of the Mississippi River. Contributed to the second edition of Gray's Manual of Botany,
New York & Chicago: Ivison, Blakeman, Taylor, & Company, 1871. Octavo. (8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches). 8 engraved plates printed on blue paper, extra- illustrated with 14 related engraved plates by or after Sprague. (Old dampstain throughout to lower margin). Original green cloth, covers with triple blind fillet border, the upper cover with central blind-stamped oval publisher's device, spine lettered in gilt. A "foundation for the general study of bryology in the United States." (Asa Gray): a rare, separately-issued extract from Gray's Manual of Botany. "When the second edition of Gray's Manual of the Botany of the Northern United States was in preparation, Mr. Sullivant was asked to contribute to it a compendious account of the Musci and Hepaticae of the region; which he did, in the space of about a hundred pages, generously adding, at his sole charge, eight copper-plates, crowded with illustrations of the details of the genera, thus enhancing vastly the value of his friend's work, and laying a foundation for the general study of bryology in the United States, which then and thus began " (Asa Gray, "William S. Sullivant: A Biographical Note", American Journal of Science & Arts, 1873, p. 3). The present work contains Sullivant's contribution in full. It was first published in this form in 1856, and is here re-printed for the first time. The extra plates by Sprague are mostly of Grasses and Ferns: their numbering (from I-XIV) suggests that they preceded Sullivant's plates (numbered XVI-XXII). At the time of his death William Starling Sullivant was the foremost authority on mosses. He is now best known for a series of works, published in limited numbers, and beautifully illustrated with dried specimens of the mosses he was describing (Musci Alleghanienses; Musci Boreali Americaniquorum specimina exsiccata ediderunt W. S. Sullivant et L. Lesquereux; Musci Appalachiani and Musci Cubetises). In addition to the present work, he also provided descriptions for the mosses collected during the Rodgers' U. S. North Pacific Exploring Expedition and the Wilkes expedition. Meisel, III:p. 476 (1856 edition, not noting the publication of this 1871 edition); not in Nissen; cf. Stafleu & Cowan VI, 13.403
