199 originals with attached herbarium plants and partly with additional drawings, used by Ludwig Reichenbach (1793-1879) for preparing the copper engravings of his famous "Icones Florae Germanicae et Helveticae", are conserved in the Botanical Department of the Natural History Museum in Vienna (Herbarium W). Obviously this material escaped from destruction by fire in the "Zwinger" at Dresden (Germany) during the revolution in May 1849. The following plant families are represented by originals: Aceraceae (3 pieces), Buxaceae (1), Caryophyllaceae (36), Coriariaceae (1), Empetraceae (1), Euphorbiaceae (2), Geraniaceae (16), Gramineae (1), Linaceae (11), Malvaceae (18), Oxalidaceae (1), Paeoniaceae (6), Potamogetonaceae (1), Ranunculaceae (69), Rutaceae (2), Salicaceae (2), Staphyleaceae (1), Tiliaceae (8), Violaceae (20), Zygophyllaceae (2). Various types of Reichenbach's taxa are extant among this herbarium material.
