  • Fifty-five plates, made to accompany this volume, have been issued in various forms. They have not, however, been published as a volume.
  • The first part, Cryptogamia, was printed in or before 1862. Of these parts, Musci, by W.S. Sullivant, was published in a separate edition in 1859, with letterpress in folio to match the plates. Extra copies of the other three parts (Lichenes, Algæ, and Fungi), and the plates of Torreys Phanerogamia were secured by Asa Gray and distributed among botanists. When the volume was finally published in 1874, he also secured copies of Torreys Phanerogams, and had the four parts, with the folio plates folded, bound in one volume, with title: U.S. Exploring expedition botany. I. Lower Cryptogamia. II. Phanerogamia of the Pacific coast of North America. It is an imperial 4to of 420 pages and 29 plates. cf. Amer. jour. sci., 3d ser., VIII (1874) p. 321-322.
