We present bounds concerning the number of Hartmanis partitions of a finite set. An application of these inequalities improves the known asymptotic lower bound on the number of linear spaces on n points. We also present an upper bound for a certain class of these partitions which bounds the number of Steiner triple and quadruple systems.
