FIRST EDITION of Schleiden's collected papers published previously and which includes his "Beiträge zur Phytogenesis" beside 13 other articles. "Schleiden . . . taking the embryonic cell as his starting-point proceeded to attempt a reconstruction of the development of the cell. He went seriously astray in this but he insisted on the independence of the cell and presented for the first time the notion that a plant, for example, is a community of cells." (PMM). References: Garrison-Morton 112; cf. PMM 307(a) (both citing Schleiden's Beiträge zur Phytogenesis, 1838). - Visit our website to see more images!
