[SALM-REIFFERSCHEID-DYCK, Joseph von.]

Catalogue raisonné des Espèces et variétés d’Aloès décrites par Ms. Willdenow, Haworth, de Candolle et Jacquin, et ce celles, non décrites, existantes dans les Jardins de l’Allemange, de la France et du Royaume des Pays-bas.

First edition of Joseph von Salm-Reifferscheid-Dyck’s first publication, simultaneously also published in a German language edition. This is the first of a long list of pamphlets in which he describes in some detail his extraordinary collection of succulents or fat plants assembled in the gardens of Schloss Dyck. His collection was the most important collection of succulents in Europe, particularly strong with American and South-African species. The Hortus Dyckensis was also an important arboretum and Schloss Dycke, a picturesque moated castle in the Rhineland, was expanded into one of the most important gardens in Germany. From 1820 to 1835 the gardens were re-modelled and re-designed by the Scottish landscape architect Thomas Blaikie. The gardens are still there today.
