's-Gravenhage, Martinus Nijhoff, 1910, X,361 pages, uncut, many illustrations, original softcover paper binding, with portrait of Junghuhn, Friedrich Franz Wilhelm Junghuhn (October 26, 1809 in Mansfeld, Germany – April 24, 1864 in Lembang, Bandung, West Java), was a German-Dutch botanist and geologist. Junghuhn studied medicine in Halle and in Berlin. As a student Junghuhn was given to bouts of depression and he attempted suicide. He became involved in a 'matter of honour', and in the ensuing duel was himself hit, but his opponent died of his wounds. Junghuhn fled by taking service in the Prussian army as a surgeon but was discovered and sentenced to ten years in prison. He feigned insanity, and was able to escape in the Autumn of 1833. He was briefly a member of the French Foreign Legion in North Africa but was dismissed on account of his poor health. At Paris, he sought out the famed Dutch botanist Christiaan Hendrik Persoon, who recommended that Junghuhn ‘enlist in the Dutch colonial army, and have yourself sent to the Dutch East Indies as a medical doctor’. Junghuhn did so, leaving Europe (Hellevoetsluis) in the early Summer of 1835, arriving in Jakarta (then called ‘Batavia’) on October 13, 1835. He published extensively on his many often highly adventurous expeditions and his scientific analyses.The fungal genus Junghuhnia, and the plants Cyathea junghuhniana and Nepenthes junghuhnii are named after Franz Junghuhn. The proceeds of this publication went to The Junghuhn-Fonds.
