Ausgabe - "Although so many of the plants that the Michaux, father and son, sent back to France were allowed to die when they got there, the observations of both men, collected in this book, made available more information about American trees and their native habitat than any earlier description. For the greater part of the nineteenth century, in its French or English version, it remained the standard account of transatlantic trees. The French version also gave the English names of the trees, and an appendix described the uses of native woods in various parts of the country" (Vgl. Raphael). - Die dekorativen Taf. nach Bessa u.
