James Donn's plant catalogue 'Hortus Cantabrigiensis' ran for 13 editions from 1796 to 1845. The history and scope of this publication is examined, and, in particular, the succulents listed within the various editions are tabulated and assessed, showing a rapid increase in the introduction of these plants into cultivation over the 50 year period. In contrast, it is shown that no other catalogue of this kind spans such a broad time scale. In addition, some editions of Donn's catalogue are shown to have minor taxonomic significance.
