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 four memoirs in this volume are:

1. Pettko, Johann v.; Geologische Karte der Gegend von Schemnitz. Mit einer Karte.
2. Ettingshausen, Constantin von; DIE TERTIAER-FLOREN DER OESTERREICHISCHEN MONARCHIE. #1 Fossile Flora von Wien. TITLE PAGE DATED 1851.
Memoir 1. Ettingshausen, Constantin von. (1826-1897); Die tertiäre Flora der Umgebungen von Wien. Mit funf taflen.
Memoir 2. Ettingshausen, Constantin von.; Die Tertiare Flora Von Haring in Tirol; Mit 31 teflen.
Memoir 3. Ettingshausen, Constantin von.; Die Steinkohlen Flora von Radnitz in Bohmen. Mit neun und zwanzig taflen.

Noted studies in this volume include three of Ettinghausen's 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.
