The Latin term 'stemmatologia' was already in use in the early 18th century, e.g. it appears in the title Stemmatologia Tigurina: Das ist Zürichisches Geschlechter Buch […] by Erhard Dürsteler (sine anno, but printed between 1706 and 1724). But the stemmata included in this book were genealogical trees of human beings, not of manuscripts. The word stemmatographia was used synonymously (cf. Joseph Ramminger, stemmatographia, in: Neulateinische Wortliste. Ein Wörterbuch des Lateinischen von Petrarca bis 1700URL: (used accessed on 12.12.2014)).
