No copyright (public domain)

Robert Blossfeld was a horticulturist specialized in cactus and other succulents in Potsdam, Germany. His catalogs were well illustrated, sometimes with pictures taken in the wild by his son, Harry Blossfeld. There are several versions of catalogs that are labeled “K XX0 Y” where K stands for catalog (Katalog), XX are the rightmost digits of the current year, and Y is either E, F, or nothing depending on whether it is an English, French or Greman version.
