Physiotypia Plantarum Austriacarum. Der Naturselbstdruck in seiner Anwendung auf die Gefässpflanzen des österreichischen Kaiserstaates, mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Nervation in den Flächenorganen der Pflanzen. Constantin Freiherr von Ettingshausen (1826-1897) and Alois Pokorny (1826-1886). Vienna: Hof-und Staatsdruckerei.
Constantin von Ettingshausen was a Viennese geologist and botanist who was a professor at Graz from 1871 to the close of his life. He was distinguished for his research on the Tertiary floras of various parts of Europe, and on the fossil floras of Australia and New Zealand. He died at Graz.
Von Ettingshausen was a keen supporter of the nature-printing process and published at least five other works using it; Pokorny, his collaborator, had the technical expertise necessary to help bring the difficult art of nature printing to perfection.
