Hepaticae Amazonicae et Andinae was the first comprehensive work published on South American hepatics, and it remains to date the most thorough treatment. It was the magnum opus of one of the outstanding naturalist-explorers of the 19th century—Richard Spruce—a man whose tenacity in the field was matched by his scholarship at home. This volume is a facsimile reprint of the original 1885 work with new introduction, index and updated nomenclature.
