Catalogue Note

the deluxe edition, one of only 500 copies, though very few copies survived the liberation of Manila at the end of the Second World War. The work marked the beginning of botanical illustration in the Philippines.

Stafleu notes that "the plates cause special problems because each of the sets we have seen differs in the plates present. The non-colour printing was all done in Manila and the printed illustrations for the deluxe edition shipped to Barcelona for the application of colour, or perhaps the plates themselves were sent there so that the colour illustrations in the deluxe edition were done entirely in Spain". Stafleu goes on to suggest that coloured copies have the plates numbered in pencil, and that on the plain copies the plate numbers are printed. The present copy has printed numbers, but is in colour. Additionally, a later owner has added typed corrections and further information to the captions at the foot of each plate.
