= Fiedler/ Leitner 4.8: "Als zeitlich ersten Band des Reisewerks veröffentlichte Humboldt das Werk über die Pflanzengeographie bestehend aus dem "Essai sur la géographie des plantes" (...), einem großen Kupfertafel mit dem pflanzengeographischen Profil (...), sowie einem die Tafel erläuternden Text (...), der umfangreicher als der eigentliche "Essai" ist. Die eigentlich erste Fassung der "Geographie der Pflanzen", ja eine erste wissenschaftliche Arbeit zu den Ergebnissen der Amerikareise überhaupt, fertigte Humboldt schon während seiner Reise an (...). Auch das Tableau wurde schon 1803 entworfen und ausgeführt. (...) Obwohl das Tableau eigentlich Bestandteil des Werkes ist, ist es doch häufig separat gebunden und auch in Bibliographien getrennt angeführt worden. Zwar hat auch Humboldt in einer Übersicht diese Version gewählt, jedoch bilden beide Teile bibliographisch eine Einheit. Die Trennung von Text und Bild kam offenbar nur aus den folgenden Gründen zustande: 1. Das Tableau wurde gegenüber des Textes verspätet geliefert. 2. Der Käufer konnte zwischen verschiedenen Varianten der Ausstattung wählen (Papiersorten, koloriert bzw. unkoloriert). Da Humboldt seiner "Geographie der Pflanzen" großen Wert beimaß, stellte er sie anfangs an die erste Stelle des Reisewerks ("das wichtigste Resultat meiner ganzen Reise" (...))". Very rare, not reprinted in this form until 1955.
