(Separatdruck aus dem IV. Bande der Verhandlungen des naturforschenden Vereines.)

(Offprint from the IVth volume of the Proceedings of the Naturalist Association.)

Offprint = Separatdruck Before the age of digital publishing, it was customary that authors would receive a certain number of printed copies of the articles they had published in scientific journals. These offprints were then sent to other scientists to communicate research results and establish contact and exchange. A note on the manuscript of Mendel’s presentation reveals that he ordered 40 offprints. See introduction for more information on the particular offprint we used for our translation.

Proceedings of the Naturalist Association The Naturalist Association of Brno (Naturforschender Verein in Brünn) was founded on December 21, 1861, and began to publish a journal immediately, with a focus on meteorology and botany.
