Collection of F.A. Marschall von Bieberstein's herbarium - separately kept


Sheet size: 42.5-43 x 27-29.5 cm

The labels are written by hand on on light blue, blue or grey paper. The most sheets are marked by the stamps: "Herb. M. a Bieberst." or printed labels: "Ex herbario Marschall Bieberstein".

The sheets kept separately in the Collection of F.A. Marschall von Bieberstein's herbarium are put in light grey spongy paper folders 30-31 x 45.5-46 with handwritten in old ink species names. Probably, these are the original folders, where the herbarium had been kept before its treatment and mounting in 1960s.

The collection was the base of the edition:
