Abhandlungen der K. K: Geologischen Reichsanstalt. began publication in Vienna in 1852. The early volumes of the treatise are now rare. Publication began under Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph I (1830-1916) with the editor being the noted Austrian geologist and mineralogist Wilhelm Karl Ritter von Haidinger (1795-1871) who provides the vorwort to the volume. The purpose of each volume was to distribute the results of the most recent geological research in the Austrian empire. Much of the focus is in the Alpine region. The nine memoirs in this volume are:

1. Reuss, August Emanuel (1811-1873) Die geognostischen Verhältnisse des Egerer Bezirkes und des Ascher Gebietes in Böhmen. mit einer Karte.
2. Peters, Carl (1825-1881); Beitrag zur Kenntniss der Lagerungsverhältnisse der Oberen Kreideschichten an einigen Localitäten der östlichen Alpen. mit einer tafel.
3. Kubernatsch, Johann; Die Ammoniten von Swinitza. Mit vier taflen.
4. Zekeli, Friedrich L.: (1823-1881); Die Gasteropoden der Gosaugebilde. Mit Vierundzwanzig taflen.?5. Ettingshausen, Constantin von. (1826-1897); Uber Palaeobromelia ein Neues Fossiles Pflanzengeschlecht. Mit zwei taflen.
6. Ettingshausen, Constantin von.; Beitrag zur Flora der Wealdenperiode. Mit funf taflen.
7. Ettingshausen, Constantin von.; Begrundung einiger neusen oder nicht genau bekanten Arten der Lias- und der Oolithflora. Mit drei taflen.
8. Ettingshausen, Constantin von.; Die Steinkohlenflora von Stradonitz in Bohmen. Mit sechs taflen.
9. Ettingshausen, Constantin von.; Fossile Pflanzenreste aus dem Trachytischen Sandstein von Heiligenkreuz bei Beikremnitz. Mit zwei taflen.

Noted studies in this volume include five of Ettinghausen's earlier works published as part of his monumental work on the Tertiary flora of the Austrian Monarchy. The works show his great powers of accurate observation and detail to plates which made him one of the great paleo-botanists of the period.?Zekeli’s work on the gastropods of the Gosau formation in the northeastern Alps was his most important work which won broad recognition.
