Edition Note 

Internet Issue 
( 2007 ) 



The files listed on the internet do not contain 
the complete and final versions of Mineralogy 
S¿ Crystallography: a Biobibliography or the 
companion book, Mineralogy ¿¿ Crystallogra- 
phy: On the History of these Sciences. Rather 
these are intermediate presentations of a por- 
tion of the computerized database being cre- 
ated to output a final version as printed books. 
However, even in this incomplete state these 
works give a substanial history of mineralogy 
and crystallography together with exhaustive 
descriptions of the major books. These files 
are being made available to the general public 
because of numerous requests for access to the 
information and the benefit to the compiler in 
the feedback he recieves from the readers. Al- 
though it is a work in progress with errors and 
formatting problems, these intermediate files 
are still a very useable reference sources. 

The Biobibliography and the History are 
companion works ultimately intended to each 
stand complete in itself, but to never the less 
complement each other, with information from 
one feeding into the other. This is particularly 
true of the section labeled "Regional Histo- 
ries" in the History, which describes the devel- 
opment of mineralogy in individual countries. 
While gathering information for the History, an 
ever increasing number of additional titles are 
necessarily being added to the Biobibliography. 
Happily however, there is finally an end in sight 
to the project. It was not possible to create the 
History without having first compiled the Bio- 
bibliography, and now that it is being written, 
work on both books is steadily drawing to a 
point where the text to both can be given a 
final edit, and be made ready for actual publi- 
cation as physical books. However, in advance 
of that future date, these files are being placed 
on the internet so that researchers and scholars 
may reference them. 

For this project, the TgX program devel- 
oped by Donald Knuth professor emeritus of 
Stanford University has been used to format 



the database text and elegantly typeset the vol- 
umes directly into the user friendly file format 
of PDF (Postscript Document Format) devel- 
oped by Adobe Software. The PDF file format 
has man}' advantages, especially since these 
files can be viewed and printed through the 
Adobe Reader software, which is readily avail- 
able. By this method it is possible to distribute 
electronic versions of the Biobibliography and 
History at a very cheap cost. Paper versions of 
the files can also be created by those individuals 
who prefer physical copy in their hands. Sev- 
eral paths are available to accomplish this goal. 
First download the files to your local computer 
and use either a home computer with a printer 
to output the over 2,000 pages or take the files 
to the local copy bureau and have them print 
the works double-sided and bound into three 
volumes. 

The text of the Biobibliography and His- 
tory are of course subject to change (sometimes 
radical) in the future. In particular, reference 
numbers for the individual titles listed in the 
Biobibliography unfortunately change because 
additions and deletions to entries in the source 
database cause these numbers to increase or de- 
crease, respectively. The files placed on the in- 
ternet were created in January 2007 in antici- 
pation of the forthcoming 53st Annual Tucson 
Gem & Mineral Society Show to be held in Tuc- 
son, Arizona on February 8-11, 2007. 

Since this is a work in progress, comments 
and suggestions about the content, format or 
missing entries are welcome by the compiler. 
The intention is to bring the work to comple- 
tion with in the the next few years, so that it 
can finally be printed as actual physical books.

Preface 



Few people today would claim mineralogy as 
a science balanced on the edge of significant 
discovery, but that was not the case in the 
past. Then, mineralog}' and its companion 
study crystallography were important sciences 
with each new discovery being widely publi- 
cized and debated. Many researchers, some of 
whom may be counted among the greatest ge- 
niuses of the human race, contemplated, inves- 
tigated and wrote about minerals and crystals. 
Mineralogy S¿ Crystallography: A Biohibliog- 
raphy, attempts in some measure to spotlight 
these people, their discoveries and their books. 
It covers the period from the invention of me- 
chanical printing through the first two decades 
of the twentieth century, and lists thousands of 
book titles in a variety of languages, many of 
which are described in bibliographic detail for 
the first time. 

It is a reference intended for collectors, 
booksellers, librarians and historians of science, 
who have an interest in the development of 
mineral studies. Consequently, biographical 
sketches of all writers notable in the sciences 
of mineralog}' and crystallography are included 
together with many names that have long since 
been forgotten by the march of time. It is lim- 
ited in scope to researchers active in Europe, 
Russia and the Americas, from the beginning of 
time until 1920, and is a true biobibliography 
containing concise biographical notes and copi- 
ous reference lists about the authors together 
with annotated bibliographies of their miner- 
alogical and crystallographic books. Effort has 
been made to include as many biographical ref- 
erences as possible since many of the names 
listed are obscure and it is hoped that this 
ready reference will stimulate further research. 
Complementing each biography is a bibliogra- 
phy of the individual's independent books rele- 
vant to mineralogy and crystallography. Some- 
times there is a single entry, in other instances 
many titles are listed. All issues, editions, 



translations and abridgments that have been 
uncovered are recorded in the bibliography. If 
a copy of the book listed has been physically ex- 
amined, it is described in full bibliographic de- 
tail, with complete pagination, collation, plate 
descriptions and a moderately detailed page by 
page recitation of contents. Otherwise as much 
information as could be located about the book 
is presented. This includes commentary related 
to the books importance in the development of 
the science, notices of reviews and other refer- 
ences listing the title. 

Two prime tests of the value of a bibliog- 
raphy are its accuracy and completeness. As 
to the first, no reference work consulted is en- 
tirely free from error, and it is a certainty that 
a careful reader will find mistakes in this vol- 
ume. Hopefully, they are not numerous, and 
the compiler bears sole responsibility for them. 
Every bibliographer knows that reference works 
do not always agree about the facts of a sub- 
ject's life, but that some sources are more re- 
liable about the facts than others. In general, 
prominent researchers gain a place in important 
works such as Dictionary of Scientiñc Biogra- 
phy, in a major national biography (e.g. Dic- 
tionary of American Biography, Neue Deutsche 
Biographie), or in the biographical memoirs of 
learned society, and the information provided 
by these sources is usually reliable. Many con- 
tributors to the development of mineralogy and 
crystallography were not included in such refer- 
ence works, however, and the confidence in the 
accuracy of the biographical data that has been 
traced is only as good as the citation(s) uncov- 
ered. For this reason, especially for less well- 
known researchers, multiple biographical cita- 
tions (when available) are provided. 

This work is intended to fit into a position 
that has never before been filled. It gives in one 
convenient work the digested contents of thou- 
sands of references with respect to their cover- 
age of the sciences of mineralogy and crystal-

A work of this scope could not be completed 
without the invaluable cooperation of a large 
number of people and access to many private 
and public libraries. It has been a privilege to 
meet and work with the many individuals who 
because of a shared interest in the history of 
mineralogy, have freely given of their knowledge 
in the field and helped to make the descriptions 
in this work better than the}' otherwise would 
have been. 

A chance to write the sale catalog of the 
Frederick H. Pough library in 1982 provided 
descriptions of many rare mineralogies, espe- 
cially those containing hand-colored illustra- 
tions. Early in the project H. Stanton Hill 
supplied a duplicate set of photocopies of title 
pages to books he owned at the time. In addi- 
tion, some of those contacted during the course 
of research very kindly invited me into their 
homes and allowed me unfettered access to 
their remarkable libraries. These include Alix 
and Russell Filer, Richard Bideaux, Jeanne and 
William "Bill" Larson, Adriana and Renato 
Pagano, Elna and Richard Hauck, and Joseph 
Freilich. Extended visits to the three outstand- 
ing mineralogical libraries of The Mineralogical 
Record courtes}' of Wendell Wilson, Dona and 
Wayne Leicht and Monika and Herbert Obodda 
made it possible to fully describe thousands of 
rare and otherwise unavailable works. The re- 
cent work of Google in scanning the books of 
several important libraries in to their Google- 
Book project (http://www.books.google.com/) 
has allowed for the inclusion of hundreds of ad- 
ditional descriptions. A similar on-line effort by 
Microsoft in digitizing volumes from the British 
Library will in the future perhaps allow for even 
more volumes to be described. 

Linda Winograd and Hugh Saunders 
helped secure photocopies of title pages of rare 
items from The United States Geological Li- 
brary, Reston, Virginia, and The British Li- 
brary, London, England, respectively, which al- 



lowed for their transcriptions to be included. 
Other collectors who have provided facsimile 
title pages and descriptions of their books in- 
clude Petr Sztacho, Ann and Si Fraizer, Mary 
Murphy, Eric Asselborn, Gilbert Gautier, John 
Sinkankas, Lawrence Conklin, and Auréle La 
Rocque. Unexpectedly, Johan Kjellman of the 
Department of Earth Sciences, Upsala Univer- 
sity, Stockholm, Sweden, having heard of this 
project spent a tremendous amount of time and 
supplied an outstanding number of fully de- 
scribed entries dealing with Swedish mineral- 
ogy and crystallography. Each of his contribu- 
tions in the biobibliography is happily signed 
with his name. 

A number of booksellers and auction 
houses have generously answered queries and 
supplied information about books they have 
held in inventory. These include Antiquri- 
aat Junk, Wheldon & Wesley, Ltd., Bernard 
Quaritch, Ltd., Zeitlin & Ver Brugge, H.P. 
Kraus, Jeremy Norman, Jack Garvin, Frank 
Chambers, Antiquariaat Theo de Boer, W.P. 
Watson Antiquarian Books (Rick Watson), A. 
Asher & Co. B.V. (Julius Steiner), Swann Gal- 
leries, Rock of Ages (Linda and John Stim- 
son), The Gemmary (Faye and Rick Blanken- 
horn), Merk's Jade (Roger Merk), Sotheby's, 
Christie's, Henry Sotheran, Ltd., Reiss & Sohn, 
and F. Zisska & R. Kistner. Special atten- 
tion must be given to the booksellers Jonathan 
Hill, New York City, New York, Antiquar- 
iat Andreas Müller, Waldems-Reichenbachand, 
Germany, and Mary and Ed Rogers, Poncho 
Springs, Colorado, who have at every oppor- 
tunity supported this project. Additionally, 
the dealer catalogs of all these firms and many, 
many other booksellers of past years have pro- 
vided citations to obscure references, as well 
as other bibliographical details of mineralogi- 
cal and crystallographical books. 

Financial assistance in the form of a grant 
and several gifts helped defer travel and inci-

dental expenses in conducting the research for 
this book. In 1996, the Geo- Literary Society 
showed its support for the Biobibliography by 
providing a grant. In addition, monetary gifts 
were received from several individuals who wish 
to remain anonymous. I hope that the finished 
project is worth}' of their early support. 

Over the decades this project has pro- 
gressed, numerous librarians have taken an in- 
terest in the project and have arranged for title 
page reproductions and addressed other biobib- 
liographical matters. It is impossible to men- 
tion them all because many remain nameless 
through the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) process. 
However, several librarians have consistently 
given help when it was requested, and spe- 
cial thanks are given to Dona Diriam of The 
Richard T. Liddicoat Library, Gemological In- 
stitute of America and Leslie Overstreet of The 
Smithsonian Libraries. 

Visits to personally examine the holdings 
of several institutional libraries have also added 
detailed information to the biobibliography.

Introduction 



This work, Mineralogy S¿ Crystallography: 
a Biobibliography, describes the lives and 
books of many researchers that are important 
to the development of these two sciences. 
It includes information on works published 
through December, 1919. This terminal 
date was chosen because of its particular 
significance in the development of the sciences 
with regard to the spreading use of X-ray 
diffraction techniques after World War I and 
the disinterest of the compiler in nearly all 
mineralogical books published after this date. 
The works listed therefore, were first issued 
between the earliest item described, Pliny's 
Historia Naturalis (1st ed., Venice, 1469), and 
December 31, 1919 — a span of 450 years. 
Modern reprints of older titles first issued 
during this period are also listed. In a few 
instances the compiler has an appreciation for 
a work first published after the terminal date, 
and its description has been included for his 
own amusement. 



Headings of Entries 

This is essentially an author catalog with bi- 
ographical commentary and references head- 
ing an annotated bibliography of the au- 
thors minéralogie and crystallographic books. 
The cataloging procedure followed is based on 
that of the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules 
(AACR2)i 1 ] with minor modifications referred 
to below. 

Personal names. The principle of using for 
the heading the most widely used form of 
the name has been followed, but (a) medieval 
names containing a forename are entered under 
the forename, e.g. Albertus Magnus, not 

"I M. Gorman and P.W. Winkler, Anglo-American 
cataloguing rules. Second edition. London, The Library 
Association, 1978. [i]-xvii, 1-620 p. 



Magnus, Albertus; (b) Latin or Greek forms if 
commonly used are preferred to the vernacular, 
e.g. Agrícola, Georgius, not Bauer, Georg; 
(с) Westernized forms are used for Arabic 
or other Oriental writers, e.g. Avicenna not 
Ibn Sïna, Abu 'Ali Al-Husayn Ibn 'Abdallah. 
Noblemen are entered under the title or family 
name, whichever is the better known. Contrary 
to Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules practice, 
names with umlauted vowels (ä, ë, ï, ö, ü and 
y) are retained with the umlauts and inserted 
into the sequence as though spelt as 'a', 'e', 
'i', 'o', 'u' and 'y'. For further information 
see Arrangement of Titles within this 
introduction. 

Anonymous and pseudonymous works. Where 
a book was published anonymously, but the 
authorship is known it is entered under the 
name of the author. Occasionally, if a 
pseudonym is better known, it is listed under 
the pseudonym. All works attributed to a 
single author, whether acknowledged or not, 
are entered under the same main heading, i.e. 
anonymous and pseudonymous works are not 
separated from those in which the author's 
true name appears, as they are in the British 
Library Catalogue (BLC in the reference 
list). Where authorship is indicated only by 
unidentified initials, the last initial excluding 
any abbreviated designation such as M.D. is 
used for the heading. Works for which the 
author is unknown are listed under the first 
substantive words of the title. 

Spurious works. Works falsely attributed to 
an author are arranged following the author's 
genuine works but under a separate heading 
consisting of the author's name preceded by the 
word 'Pseudo', e.g. pseudo Aristotle. This 
does not apply to writings which are generally 
included in the corpus of an author's work but 
are of doubtful authenticity. These works are 
arranged under the main heading but with a

Introduction 



distinctive subheading, e.g. Supposititious and 
Doubtful Works. 

Dissertations. The Anglo-American Code is 
followed in preference to the standard adopted 
in the British Library Catalogue, i.e. the main 
entry for a dissertation is entered under the 
name of the 'Praesesidium' rather than that 
of the 'Respondent.' Cross-references are then 
provided from the 'Respondent' to the main 
entry of the Praesesidium through the name 
index. 

Joint authors. The main entry for a work is 
entered under the senior author (usually listed 
first on the title page). Cross-references are 
then provided from all subsequent authors to 
this main entry. In a few cases when a work 
is known to be the result of a junior author's 
labor, the main entry is placed under the name 
of the junior author, and cross-references are 
provided from all other authors. For example, 
Brooke & Miller's An Elementary Introduction 
to Mineralogy (London, 1852) is listed under 
Miller's corpus based on information supplied 
by Brooke in the preface. A cross-reference to 
Miller is then supplied under Brooke's entry. 

Corporate and group headings. In addition 
to the usual corporate headings (e.g. George 
English & Co.), two special group headings 
are employed simply to bring together like 
material which would otherwise be difficult to 
trace in an author catalog, e.g. (a) Catalogs 
of Mineral Collections, a heading chosen for 
a class of items that effectively was the creation 
of the collector, who is usually not the author 
of the catalog. Cross-references are given to 
the full entry; (b) Journals and Periodicals, 
under which heading are listed the titles of 
all regularly published serials described in 
the bibliograplry, with cross-references to their 
main entry. 

Cross-references. Reference is made from 
alternative forms of the name to the one 
adopted for the main heading. Names with 
prefixes are normally entered according to the 
Anglo-American Code, unless an exception is 
made because some alternative form appears 
to be more widely accepted. Cross-reference 
from the part(s) of name not used for entr)^ 
is omitted, except where it can be used to 
clarifj' where in the sequence an author is 



entered. References from Arabic forms are 
kept to a minimum because (a) the Westernized 
form which was commonly used in Renaissance 
Europe is familiar to Oriental scholars, and 
others are more likely to seek the writings of 
these authors immediateby under the Western 
name; (b) the complexity of Arabic names 
makes cross-reference of little use unless it is 
done on a scale which is only practicable in 
a very large work such as that of the British 
Library Catalogue. Cross-references within the 
main body of the text have been keep to a 
minimum. However, the names of editors, 
translators, and others contributing in any form 
to a work, including printers and publishers 
may be found in the comprehensive name index 
provided at the end of the Biobibliography. 
For further information, see the section labeled 
Indexes below. 



Entry Description 

Biography 

The main entry consists of a name, either 
personal or corporate, or the first words of a 
work published anonymously. 

Personal Names. If the main entry consists of a 
persons name (most common), the full name of 
the individual is provided, as much as possible 
in agreement with the standard biographies 
available to the compiler (see References 
for a complete list). When discrepancies 
arose, national biographies pertinent to the 
individual's native-land took precedence for 
the correct spelling of the name. If the 
individual in question could not be located 
in any such biography (s), the spelling of 
the name as used b)^ The National Union 
Catalogue (NUC in the reference list) took 
precedence, followed in turn b}' Тле British 
Library Catalogue and then the Catalogue 
Général des Livres Imprimés de la Bibliothque 
Nationale (BLC and CBN respectively in 
the reference list). Cross-references from 
name variants were then established back 
to the main entry. The personal name is 
followed by the places and dates of birth 
and death enclosed in parentheses. The 
word Born precedes information indicating 
birth data, while the term Death precedes 
death data. The nationality and occupation(s)

Introduction 



of the individual is then provided. A 

condensed biographical portrait of the person is 
then given, emphasizing various mineralogical 
aspects of the life. Listed at the end 
are citations to published obituaries and 
biographies where further biographical detail 
may be found. For the more famous 

of the researchers, these lists are not 
necessarily exhaustive. For example, there 
is a tremendous body of seconday literature 
concerning Linneaus and the citations listed in 
his biography, although numerous, are by no 
means complete. Within the references, notice 
is also given of published portaits and other 
likenesses of the author and comprehensive 
bibliographies covering the individual that have 
come to the compiler's attention. 

Commercial Firms. If the main entr} r consists of 
the name of a commercial firm, the full name 
of the сотрапз' is given. This is followed by 
information giving details, as much as thejr are 
known, of the firms history and proprietors. 
At the end are listed references where further 
information may be researched. 

Museums. If the main entr}' consists of the 
name of a museum, the city and country where 
the museum is located is given, followed by the 
full name of the museum. This is followed by 
details, as much as they can be ascertained, of 
the history of the body, including the date of 
founding. At the end are listed citations where 
further information ma} r be researched. 

Societies and Organizations. If the main entry 
consists of the name of a society or other 
organized body, the city and country where the 
society was organized is given. This is followed 
by the full name of the society or organization. 
This is followed by details, as much as the)' can 
be ascertained, of the history and membership 
of the society. At the end are listed citations 
where further information та} г be researched. 

Anonymous Titles. If a work is listed that has 
an unknown author, the first substantive words 
of the title will be used to create its heading. 
No other information will be provided in the 
heading of the entry. 

Bibliography 

A listing of mineralogical and crystallographi- 
cal books authored by the subject follows the 



heading entry. The most important source for 
this section has of course been the close exam- 
ination of the books themselves. For this the 
resources of several private and public libraries 
have been invaluable (see Acknowledgements 
for a list). The next best source for entries have 
been photocopies of the title pages of the var- 
ious works, while the remainder of the entries 
were gathered from many general and special- 
ized bibliographies as well as the internet and 
a large selection of bookseller catalogs. 

Description of Bibliographical Entries 

The most complete bibliographic entries are 
those where a copy of the listed title 
has been carefully examined, while less 
complete descriptions occur for those works 
not actually examined. The design of 

the bibliography was derived after reviewing 
hundreds of bibliographies on a wide variety of 
subjects. In addition, a relatively recent book 
on bibliography design helped avoid several 
pitfalls.! 2 ] The format chosen to describe 

the individual titles is a combination of the 
ideas presented in the bibliographic manuals 
of Bowers,! 3 ! EsdaileM GaskellΠand 
McKerrow.t 6 ! The most complete form of an 
entry consists of the following features. 

Entry Number. Each title listed in the 
bibliography is given a unique number. These 
start at 1 and increment for each title listed 
through out the whole bibliography. 

Language(s) and Year(s). Publication language 
and year in which the title appeared. Other

Introduction 



editions and issues are usually listed as separate 
entries under the same author. 

Edition and Translation Note. Following the 
Language (s) and Year(s) and enclosed in square 
brackets is a short note indicating either 
edition or translation information about the 
forthcoming title. 

Title. The title as it was originally printed 
is given. If a cop}' of the title page 

has been examined it is represented in 
quasi-facsimile transcription as accurately as 
possible. Punctuation and accent marks have 
been reproduced as best as possible, as have 
special characters such as 1, 'Ц., Ъ, О, Г, 0, 
а, е, у, X, and ß. Spelling as it appears 
on the title page has been copied exactly. 
Vertical bars " I " indicate the end of a line 
within the title. Printed errors in the title are 
followed by a comment of the form [!]=mistake 
or [sic]=as written. Extraneous descriptions or 
comments relevant to the format of the title are 
enclosed in square brackets. Common examples 
include [short rule], [rule], [double rule], and 
[ornament] . 

Format. The pagination of the book(s) 
begins with reference to the predominant 
number of leaves in a single section. For 
example, 2°=folio, 4°=quarto, 8°=octavo, 
12°=duecimo, etc. The format is ended by a 
colon ":". 

Collation. In older books it was common for 
the printer to add some mark on the various 
folded section of a book to facilitate the 
gathering of the signatures in correct order so 
they could be bound up. These marks were 
usually a number or a letter or a combination 
thereof. In this bibliography the gatherings 
are listed after the format. Following standard 
bibliographic practice, the Greek character Pi 
p is used to indicate a book's preliminary 
unsigned leaves and the Greek character Chi 
с indicates unsigned leaves within the body 
of the book. However, in difference from 
common practice the collations presented do 
not attempt to account for all pages of a 
signiature. Rather the collations given account 
for pages in a book with printing on them. 

Leave Count. After the collation, the absolute 
count of leaves is given. This is useful 
in determining if the collation matches the 



pagination. For example, the collation provides 
a formulae of the leaf count, whose total if 
multiplied by 2 must equal the page count as 
given by the pagination. If they don't equate, a 
discrepancy exists in one or the other or both! 
For example, the collation p 2 a-c 8 d 3 says there 
are 2+8+8+8+3=29 leaves contained in the 
book, which means there should be 29x2=58 
pages. 

Pagination. A short hand description of the 
numbering that occurs on the pages is given. 
Items enclosed in square brackets are assumed 
and do not actually appear on the page. If 
appropriate, descriptive material noting the 
number of plates, maps, tables, etc. will end 
the pagination of each volume. 

Page Size. The size of the title page measured in 
millimeters is provided. Measurement is done 
first along the length of the page, then across 
the width. The length of the title is defined to 
be perpendicular to the reading direction of the 
text on the title page. 

Contents. Each book is unique in the method 
the author and/or publisher has elected to 
order the information. The contents provides 
a description of this arrangement. However, it 
is not meant to be an exhaustive page by page 
account of the books information. Rather this 
is an overview of the major sections contained 
within the volume (s), with the beginning and 
ending pages indicated or in some cases the 
beginning and ending leaves. Descriptions 
enclosed in quotes are derived directly from 
the first page indicated, while those not in 
quotes are the compilers interpretation of the 
intended content. Any comments included by 
the compiler are enclosed in square brackets. 

Plates, Tables and Maps. In some books 
where it is not possible to describe the 
illustrations depicted on the plates easily, a list 
of the individual or groups of plates will be 
provided. Maps and tables when the}' represent 
a substantial portion of the volume(s) will also 
be treated in a similar fashion. 

Rarity. An attempt is given to provide an idea 
of the relative rarity of the title listed. This is 
subjective information based on a wide range 
of characteristics, such as the book's language, 
date of publication, frequency of listings in 
bookseller catalogs, and the collective holding 



Mineralogy & Crystallography: A Biobibliography & History

NOT FOR PUBLICATION Printed: January 23, 2007 



Introduction 



in public and private United States, British, 
and European libraries, etc. Several categories 
are provided to distinguish rarity, i.e. Only 
copy known =only one copy traced, Extremely 
rare=2-5 copies traced, Very rare=6-12 
copies traced, Rare=13-22 copies traced, Very 
scarce=23-32 copies traced and ScARCE=more 
than 33 copies traced. 

Commentary. The commentary describes the 
importance (if any) of the title to the 
history and development of mineralogy or 
crystallography. Inclusion may be made of a 
contents summary, quotations from the work, 
translation of the title, publishing history, 
descriptions of notable illustrations, etc. 

Other Editions, Translations & Reprints. For 

books that went through man}' editions or 
were reprinted after 1919, this section will 
provide the pertinent information about the 
title. In addition, titles that have only minor 
mineralogical information, but had multiple 
editions or translations, will use this section to 
list other variations of the book. Usually, this 
consists of a short title, place of publication, 
year and pagination. Rarely, a full description 
with commentai'}' will be provided. 

References. If a particular title is important to 
the development of either science, other authors 
will most likely have written about the book, 
and its place in history. In addition, various 
library catalogs or bibliographies may include 
the title. Citations to these other writings will 
appear in this position. Reference to book 
reviews is also given here. If no reference to 
the described title has been found, References 
will not appear at the end of the commentary. 

Arrangement of Titles 

The headings in the Biobibliography are in a 
single alphabetical order and consist primarily 
of the names of the authors of the various 
works. Headings such as those used for 
anonymous works, periodicals, journals, official 
institutions, museums, mineral collectors, 
dealers, societies, or other national bodies are 
included in the same alphabetical sequence. 
Frequent use is made of cross references when 
a particular entry could be searched for under 
different headings. 



Roman Alphabets 

Names originally written in a Roman alphabet 
language retain all diacritical marks and special 
characters as they would if written in their 
native language. To simplify the location of 
a particular name, all accented characters fall 
into the same alphabetical sequence as if they 
were not accented. Thus á=a, ç=c, ê=e, í=i, 
ô=o, ò=o, ü=u, etc. Contrary to Anglo- 
American Cataloguing Rules practice, there is 
no exception to this rule for the umlauted 
vowels, ä, ë, ï, ö, ü and y. When one or 
more of these characters appears in a name, 
each occurrence of the vowel is treated in the 
alphabetical sequence as though it is a normal 
letter. Thus, ä=a, ë=e, ï=i, ö=o, ü=u and y=y. 
The old use of a superscripted "e" above 
a letter to indicate an umlauted vowel has 
been retrained in the title transcriptions. Thus 
for transcription to a modern convention, å=ä, 
ë=ë, o=ö, ú=ü and y=y.

Non- Roman Alphabets 

Names originally written in the Russian, Be- 
lorussian or Bulgarian languages and utiliz- 
ing the Cyrillic alphabet have been translit- 
erated to the roman alphabet. There are a 
number of tables available for the purpose of

transliteration, and the one chosen for the Bio- 
bibliography is also used by the Library of 
Congress for transliterating Russian with di- 
acritical marks.! 7 ! A representation of the 
transliteration table used within the Biobibli- 
ography is presented in Table 1. 

In addition, there are certain letter 
combinations, usually occurring at the end 
of a Russian word, that convert to specific 
sequences in English. For this purpose specific 
conversions were used (see Table 2).

Table 2 

Order under the Main Heading 

For individual works and collections (including 
analytical entries) the order is chronological by 
date of publication (entries of the same date 
being arranged alphabetically by title), but all 
versions of the same work or collection are 
grouped together. Such groups are arranged 
by language, the order of languages being 
chronological by date of publication of the 
earliest entry in each. Under each language 
the arrangement is (a) original editions, if 
more than one, in chronological order; (b) 
translations, if more than one, in chronological 
order; (c) editions of the same language in 
chronological order; (d) specific cross-references 
in alphabetical order. See Figure 1 for a 
diagram of the general scheme. 

Within entries, general cross-references are 
arranged in alphabetical order, but multiple 
references to a single heading main entry are 
condensed to a single cross-reference. In a 
few cases where a very substantial number of 
entries appear under a single heading, such as 
under Pliny, titles are grouped in a special 
way, usually according to the order adopted in 
the standard editions of the complete works of 

l ' J.T. Shaw, The transliteration of modern Russian 
for English language publications. Madison, Univ. of 
Wisconsin Press, 1967. 



the author. A summary of the arrangement 
will be found at the beginning of each of these 
groups. There are also a few cases where 
minor variations occur, these are indicated by 
subheadings within the body of the entry.

Indexes (not implemented) 

To facilitate the use of this Biobibliography, 
a series of comprehensive indexes has been 
provided at the end. In order to make 
maximum use of the index, when a citation 
refers to a bibliographic title entry, reference 
is back to the titles entry number in the 
list. In the case of references back to a main 
biographical entry, the page number, rather 
than an item number is used in the index. 
The page number is distinguished from an item 
numeral by the application of a bold font. The 
individual indexes are described below. 

Indexes of Towns and Printers. These list under 
each country the various places of publication 
and the names of the printers and publishers. 
It is hoped that these very extensive indexes 
will prove a useful contribution to the study of 



Mineralogy & Crystallography: A Biobibliography & History

NOT FOR PUBLICATION Printed: January 23, 2007 



printing and mineralogical publishing from the 
fifteenth to the early twentieth century. 

Index to Anonymous Works. When a work 
published anonymously can be attributed to 
a known author, it has been entered in that 
authors bibliography. However, a collector, 
bookseller or librarian, actually examining 
the work may not know the actual author. 
Therefore this index of short titles with 
references to the main entry is provided to 
facilitate their lookup. 

Name Index. This is a comprehensive index 
to all names mentioned throughout the body 
of the Biobibliography. The names are 
listed in a single alphabetical sequence with 
cross-references from name variants included. 
Authors, translators, contributors, editors, 
printers, publishers, artists, engravers and 
other incidental names are listed in a single 
sequence, with reference to the page or entry 
where mention is made. 

Subject Index. This is an index to subjects 
mentioned throughout the body of the Biobib- 
liography.

Peder Abildgaard 

ABILDGAARD, Peder Christian. (Born: Copen- 
hagen, Denmark, 22 December 1740; DIED: Copen- 
hagen, Denmark, 11 January 1801) Danish physician 
& naturalist. 

Abildgaard was the son of S0ren [see next entry]. 
He was educated at the Veterinarian School in Lyon. He 
authored many works on medicine, zoology, etc., and gave 
in 1796 a description of the Megatherium at the same 
time as Georges Cuvier. Abildgaard was a secretary of 
the Academy of Sciences, Copenhagen, and he founded 
and directed the Veterinary School of Copenhagen. In 
mineralogy he was the first to examine and report on the 
mineral species Cryolite found in Greenland.

1. German, 1801 [First separate issue]. 

Ueber Norwegische Titanerze und eine neue 
Steinart (Kryolith) aus Grönland, welche aus 
Flusspathsaure und Alaunerde bestellt. Aus dem 
Dänischen übersetzt von Moritz Heinrich Mendel. 
Kopenhagen, 1801. 

8°: 10 p. 

VERY RARE. First separate appearance in German 
translation by Moritz Heinrich Mendel [see note below] 
of the article "Om Norske Titanertser och om en 



nye Steenart Kryolith fra Gr0nland, som bestaar 
af Flusspatsyre og Alunjord" (see: Videnska bernes 
Selskabs Skrifter (Danske), 3 (1800), 305-316). The 
text describes two mineral species: (1) sphene crystals 
found in Norway, and (2) the new mineral species 
cryolite found in Ivigtut, Greenland. Abildgaard was 
the first researcher to examine the mineral samples 
brought back from Greenland by Andrade and named 
the new species he discovered Kryolith or Iissteen (from 
the Greek KpDOO" meaning ice). Abildgaard performed 
chemical analysis of the minerals and found that cryolite 
contained aluminum and hydrofluoric acid. 

Moritz Heinrich Mendel. (BORN: Breslau, Germany, 
1777; DIED: Breslau, Germany, 3 December 1813) German 
physician. Mendel received his medical degree in 1811, and 
he was named professor of the new University in Breslau. 
He became director of the cities medical clinic and was 
named an advisor on medical subjects. However, his life 
was cut short when while fighting an outbreak of typhus, 
he contracted the disease.

VERY SCARCE. A visit to the chert and fossil 
bearing chalk beds of Stevn Klint situated south of 
Copenhagen along Denmark's Baltic coast prompted 
Abildgaard to write in 1759 the first geological account 
of this interesting formation. Dedicating the book 
to King Frederick the Fifth, a description of the 
area is provided, including mineralogical and chemical 



observations on the chert nodules, fossil shells and the 
surrounding material. Abildgaard speculates that the 
chert is actually petrified soil. At the end of the volume 
are bound three plates engraved from the author's 
original drawings that show panoramas of the beds and 
on plate 3, various fossil shells found in the strata. 
Abildgaard also indicates he plans to write another 
book describing a similar formation in M0ns, which 
was published as Physisk-A'íineraiogiskBeskriveíseover 
Moens Klint (K0penhagen, 1781) [which see entry 
below]. 

Modern geochemical research on specimens from 
Stevn Klint, a famous and classic formation, show that 
at the Cretaceous- Tertiary boundary, there is a high 
saturation of iridium and gold. This together with 
the presence of meteoric proportions of other metals 
provides further evidence of an asteroidial impact in 
the earth's distant past.

In 1793, Accurn moved to London, where in 1800, he 
established a laboratory and laboratory supply business. 
He became the scientific lecturer at the Surrey Institute in 
1803, and was hired as an advocate for the use of gas in 
lighting. Through this connection, he became a "practical 
chemist" for the London Gaslight Company in 1812. A 
position as librarian for the Royal Institution proved to be

a disaster when his enemies accused him of damaging the 
books. This made Accum an outcast in London scientific 
circles, and as a result he had to reestablish himself in 
Berlin in 1822. From 1822 to 1838 he was a professor at 
the Gewerbe-Institute in Berlin. Accurn held membership 
in the Royal Irish Academy, the Linnean Society of London 
and the Royal Academy of Sciences, Berlin.

SCARCE. This is a popular-style textbook 

describing the techniques used in the chemical 
determination of minerals. The preface gives the 
impression that the book was available only to pupils 
attending Accum's lectures, including the Americans 
Benjamin Silliman and William Peck; however, it 
appears to be common for this to be true. After a 
short description of the apparatus and general technique 
of mineral analysis, the first part of the book briefly 
describes the methods for analyzing the ores of twenty- 
two metals. The second part of the treatise is devoted to 
the analysis of the so-called earths, which in reality are 
natural oxide compounds of silica, aluminum, calcium, 
magnesium, strontium, barium, etc. This section also 
contains an interesting chemical examination of various 
soils. Part three discusses the analysis of mineral salts 
and the fourth part the examination of inflammable 
fossils or coal.

SCARCE. This greatly enlarged book is a second 
edition of A Practical Essay on the Analysis of Minerals 
(London, 1804). Written in the author's eloquent and 
comfortable style, this work appeared in an era when 
mineralogical pursuits were a popular pastime throughout 
the British Isles, and this book no doubt helped cultivate 
that popularity. 

The book begins with a dedication to RICHARD 
KlRWAN the great Irish mineralogist who by 1808 had 
probably ceased any activity in mineralogy. The preface 
then describes Accum's surprise at having the first edition 
sell out in 18 months. This of course spurred the 
preparation of this new edition. It has been completely 
rewritten and greatly enlarged by the inclusion of long 
quotations from MARTIN HEINRICH Klaproth's Analytical 
Essays (English trans., London, 1801-4) and the writings of 
other mineralogists and chemists. In fact, fully half of the 
text of the present volumes are the product of other authors 
that are liberally quoted to illustrate principles developed 
by Accum. 

The book is arranged along the lines of the 
former edition. It contains concise descriptions for 

the analysis of metallic ores, earths, stones and other 
minerals. Numerous detailed instructions help guide 
beginners through mineralogical analysis. The following 
text is divided into six parts. The first provides a 
general introduction to mineralogy, including definitions, 
descriptions of mineral substances, reagents and necessary 
equipment. Broad views of the mineralogical classifications 
of Werner and Haüy are then given. Included are table 
representations based upon two broadsides outlining these 
classifications methods that had been published about 
1805. Accum's use of these earlier publications perhaps 
point to him as their anonymous author. Part two describes 
the tests and procedures necessary for analyzing minerals 
for any of the 25 metals then known. Part three, which 
opens volume two, describes the analysis of earths and 
stones. Part four describes the process for analyzing 
mineral and native salts. Part five describes the same for 
inflammable fossils, while part six covers mineral waters. 
The work concludes with a description of the two plates.

Scarce. The first independent textbook 

published in English to describe the crystallographic 
theories of RENÉ Just HaÜY. The work is dedicated to 
Earl Percy, Count Münster Meinhovel, Sir John Borlase 
Warren and Sir John Saunders Sebright who were 
among the students Accum taught. The text describes 
in detail Haüy's ideas on crystallography. In 1784, 
Haüy had first published his ideas in the Essai d'une 
Théorie sur la. Structure des Crystaux (Paris, 1784). 
In this work, Haüy brought together the advances 
in crystallography made by Rome de l'Isle, Bergman 
and others into a coherent structural theory, based 
upon the idea of a microscopic "molecule integrante." 
This polyhedral unit contained all the elements of the 
macro crystal, and Haüy's model depicted crystals as 
built up out of these molecular units. Haüy also 
theorized a common "nucleus" or "primitive form" 
for all crystals of the same mineral species. This 
primitive form was thought to be revealed by cleavage 
of a crystal symmetrically along its angles and edges. 
Haüy's theory of crystal structure changed little in 
its essentials during the remainder of his career, and 
it is that theory that Accum describes in this work. 
The text is illustrated with diagrams and four plates 
which help describe principles outlined in the text. 
Ever the businessman, Accum also includes at the end 
an interesting sales catalog describing a wide variety 
of mineralogical apparatus, including various crystal 
models that Accum stocked in his Soho shop.

ACHARD 

ACHARD, Franz Carl. (BORN: Berlin, Germany, 
28 April 1753; DIED: Kunern near Breslau, Silesia, 
Germany, 20 April 1821) German chemist. 

Achard was hired as an aide to Andreas Sigismund 
Marggraf [1709-1782] at the Academy of Sciences, Berlin 
in 1776. After showing his merit as a chemist, he 
was appointed director of the "Class of Physics" at 
the Academy in 1782. Achard developed a comrnerical 
process to extract sugar from beets, and his essays on the 
process greatly contributed to promote the manufacturer 
throughout Europe especially Germany and France. He 
held membership in many learned bodies, including the 
Royal Academy of Sciences at Berlin to which he was 
elected in 1776.

Bestimmung | der | Bestandtheile | einiger |

| Berlin, | bey Arnold Wever 1779. 

8°: A-H 8 ; 64f.; [1]-128 p., 2 folding plates 
(chemical apparatus). Page SIZE: 200 x 122 mm. 

VERY SCARCE. Among the earliest systematic 
attempts at analyzing gemstones was Bestimmung der 
Bestandtheile einiger Edelsteine. Sinkankas (1981) 
notes that Achard performed essentially the same kind 
of analysis as Bergman described the next year, and 
for which Bergman has been given all credit; however, 
Achard was not the careful technician Bergman was 
and his results were badly contaminated. In this 
work, Achard records his analyses of sapphire, ruby, 
zircon, emerald, garnet, and Chrysoprase determined 
the presence of silicon, calcium, magnesium, and iron 
in his specimens, but as in the case of zircon where 
the zirconium was completely overlooked, many of the 
analyses are wrong (Partington). This carelessness was 
due in most part to the analyses being conducted in 
an iron crucible, which undoubtedly contaminated the 
results, as well as the lack of experimental technique 
of the author. Another paper, continuing Achard's 
research, was published as "Chemische Untersuchungen 
der Edelsteine" (see: Abhandlungen des Aíünchen 
Akademie, 1800, 219-350).

SCARCE. This major topographical work covers 
the important mining region of the Siebenburgen 
located in present day Romania. In the first part of 
the forward, Ackner outlines his goals and reasons for 
writing this book. He notes that no previous work 
had sufficiently described the mineralogical wonders 
of the area. He qualifies this view by providing a 
list of earlier titles, and outlining the comprehensive 
treatment he plans. Ackner began work in 1844, which 
is the first date of the forward. In the "Nachschrift" 
that immediately follows, he recounts how the first Heft 
of this book was published in 1847, and that it was 
only after eight years of thorough research that the 
volume was completed in 1855. The text is a descriptive 
mineralogy in the arrangement of C.S. WEISS' system 
of classification. Each species found in the region 
is provided a description giving copious notes about 
localities, associations, crystallography, and chemistry.

History 



Acosta 




Acosta 



1587 he was stationed in the West Indies and Provinzial in 
Peru. He learned enough of both the Aymara and Quechua 
languages to write a trilingual catechism in 1583. When he 
returned to Europe, he was for a time assigned a post in 
Rome, but finally returned to Spain as a rector at the Jesuit 
college of Salamanca. For his writings which provided 
detailed images of the physical and human geography of 
Latin America, Acosta has been called the "Pliny of the 
New World."

RARE. Acosta's most important scientific work, 
Historia natural y moral de las Indias contains firsthand 
observations on many diverse phenomena witnessed by 
Acosta in the New World. Included are some of the 
earliest descriptions of altitude sickness, the nature and 
use of coca, farm techniques, crops, and domesticated 
animals of America. Also included are descriptions 
of Inca and Aztec history, religious observations, folk 
customs, and statecraft. Acosta includes detail about 
Mexican ideograms and Peruvian quipu and the Inca 
postal system. 

The text consists of 7 books of which the first 
two are a Spanish translation of De Natvra Nova 
Orbis Libri Dvo (1st ed., Salmanticae, 1589) which 
was written during Acosta's stay in Perú, while the 
remainder of the work was written after he returned 
to Spain. Book 1 in 25 chapters discusses the sky, 
the stars, the Poles, knowledge of the ancient world 
of the New World, the land of Ophir, prophecies, the

RARE. This book is a classified catalog of the 
splendid mineral collection of Adam, arranged in a 
tabular manner with respect to physical properties 
and chemical compositions. The headings for each 
table give the name, crystal type, hardness, density, 
fusibility, solubility, composition and formula. An index 
facilitates the lookup of specific species. The work 
ends with a list of references consulted. Originally 
the text was published in Annales des Mines (see: 15, 
1869, 405-626). However, to create the book, the text 
was corrected, additional information added and the 
format changed so that the individual tables occupy a 
single page rather than being divided at the center as 
occured in the original article. That Adam carefully 
examined his specimens is clearly demonstrated by 
his discovery and description in this book of the 
still recognized mineral species: aerugite, chenevixite, 
corkite, cuprotungstite, scacchite, and xanthiosite.

F.D. Adams 



ADAMS, Frank Dawson. (Born: Montreal, Quebec, 
Canada, 17 September 1859; DIED: Montreal, Quebec, 
Canada, 29 December 1942) Canadian geologist. 

Adams was educated at McGill University, receiving 
his M.A. in 1884 and a Ph.D. in 1902, and at the University 
of Heidelberg recieving a Ph.D. in 1892. After serving some 
time on the staff of the Canadian Geological Survey, Adams 
was appointed lecturer in geology at McGill University, 
and in 1893 professor of geology. In 1908 he took on the 
position of dean of the faculty of applied science at the 
University and for a time the role of vice principal and 
as acting principal were also his. Adams was elected a 
Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1896 and of the 
Royal Society of London in 1907. He was president of 
the International Geological Society in 1913, and of the 
Geological Society of America in 1918. Adams was the 
author of many papers dealing with the igneous rocks of 
North America and the effects of temperature and pressure 
on those rocks. Towards the end of his life, he also wrote 
A History of Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal (Montreal, 
1941).

SCARCE. This famous text traces the history of 
the geological sciences from Greek and Roman times, 
through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and up to 
the mid- 19th century of the modern era. It is not a 
dry recitation of obsolete ideas but a truly fascinating 
account of how dozens of curious, colorful systems 
evolved into modern geology, and its subfields. 

In his treatment of the subject, Adams discusses 
the work of over 300 different authorities, analyzing 
in detail the ideas of such researchers as William 
Smith, Agricola, Geikie, Hutton, Werner, Aristotle, 
Becher, Cuvier, Kircher, and many others. He recounts 
the birth of modern mineralogy, paleontology and

AEPINUS (Hoch), Franz Ulrich Theodosius. (Born: 
Rostock, Germany, 13 December 1724; DIED: Dorpat, 
Russia [now Tartu, Estonia], 10 August 1802) German 
mathematician & physicist. 

Aepinus studied medicine and mathematics at Jena 
and Rostock, where he took his M.A. in 1747, with his 
dissertation on the paths of falling bodies. In 1757, he 
settled in St. Petersburg, where he had become a member 
of the Academy of Sciences in 1755, as well as a professor 
of physics. He possessed great skill as an experimenter, 
which he applied to discovering and testing the electrical 
properities of tourmaline. He was particularly struck by 
the similarity between the magnet and the tourmaline 
with regard to polarity. He authored, Tentamen Theorise 



Electritaitis et Magnetismi (1759), "one of the most original 
and important books in the history of electricity. It is the 
first reasoned, fruitful exposition of electrical phenomena 
based on action-at-a-distance" (DSB).

(Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of 
London, 51, 1759) and Duke de Noya Carafa's "Lettre 
du Duc de Noya Caraffa à M. de Buffon" (1759) both 
dealing with the properties of tourmaline are reprinted 
with commentary by Aepinus. 

Having been inspired by the electrical theories 
of Benjamin Franklin, Aepinus began experimenting 
with electricity. Eventually, he turned his attention 
to the tourmaline stone which was thought to produce 
a positive and negative electrical charge when heated. 
Upon experimenting with a large stone, Aepinus proved 
to his satisfaction the mineral did create electricity 
when sufficiently heated. He became entranced with 
this pheonemon which he compared to the dipolar 
behavior of magnets.

Agassiz 



AGASSIZ, Jean Louis Rodolphe. (Born: Motier-en- 
Vuly, Fribourg, Switzerland, 28 May 1807; DIED: Cam- 
bridge, Massacheusetts, U.S.A., 14 December 1873) 
Swiss/American physician, zoologist & geologist. 

Agassiz was educated in France, Switzerland and 
Germany, receiving an M.D. from the University of 
Heidelberg in 1826 and a Ph.D. from the University of 
Erlangen in 1829. He conducted zoological research under 
GEORGES Cuvier and became professor of natural history 
at the University Neuchatel, Switzerland (1832-46). In 
1846, he came to America teaching at Yale and Harvard. 
Agassiz became an American citizen in 1862, and settled 
in Cambridge as a professor of zoology at Harvard. He was 
a founding member of the National Academy of Sciences. 
As a professor he trained many outstanding zoologists and 
geologists of the next generation.

SCARCE. This important early bibliography lists 
all the titles known to the author and editors pertaining 
to zoology and geology from the earliest times to almost 
the time of publication. The text is in two parts. The 
first part (vol. 1, pp. 1-86) lists periodicals and other 
sources consulted, while the second is the bibliography 
proper, arranged alphabetically by author. The entries 
are abbreviated, with little detail, as is expected in a 
work of this scope. However, it is a valuable source for 
information on early works.

AGRÍCOLA, Georgius. (BORN: Glauchau, Saxony, 
Germany, 24 March 1494; DIED: Chemnitz, Saxony, 




Agrícola 

Germany, 21 November 1555) German physician, 
mineralogist & mining expert. 

From 1518 to 1522, Agrícola studied medicine and 
chemistry at Bologna, Venice and Padua. He then taught 
the classics at the Municipal School, Zwickau, Saxony. In 
1527, he moved to Joachimsthal, Czechoslovakia, where he 
opened a medical practice. In this locality, with the mining 
activities of the surrounding area impacting his daily life, 
Agrícola began to study mining techniques and mineralogy. 
After an appointment in 1533 as official historian for the 
principality of Saxony, which included an annual stipend, 
Agrícola moved again. He relocated his medical practice to 
Chemnitz in Saxony. There he became a civic leader which 
lead to his being elected mayor of the town in 1546, 1547, 
1551, and 1553. Agrícola was one of the extraoridinary 
scientists of his age. His texts on medical diseases suffered 
by miners were innovative for the time, and for his works 
that dealt with mining and mineralogy, he was labeled "The 
father of mineralogy" by no less than ABRAHAM GOTTLOB 
Werner.

VERY RARE. Bermannus, sive De Re Metallica. 
Dialogue is Agricola's first published work in relation 
to mining. The text of this work is in the form of a 
dialogue between "Bermannus," who is described as a 
miner, mineralogist, poet, and student of mathematics, 
and "Nicolaus Ancón" and "Johannes Neavius," both 
scholars and physicians. The main theme of the 
dialogue is the correlation of minerals mentioned by the 
ancient authors and those found in the Saxon mines. 
The three conversationalists wonder through the mines 
and discuss matters that come to their attention. There 
is no systematic or logical arrangement to the text, 
therefore. Occassionally, statements of historical or 
technical interest are included. The mineralogial part, 
while of importance for giving the first description of 
several minerals such as bismuth, is much improved in 
De Natura. Fossilium (1st ed., Basileae, 1546).

VERY SCARCE. This is a collected edition of 
Agricola's works on mineralogy, geology and mining. It 
consists of six separate treatises, several of which appear 
in print for the first time. 

[A]. De Ortu & Causis Subterraneorum in five 
books has always been published in the company of 
other works. This is Its first appearance. The 
work consists of five books that contain Agricola's 
philosophical views on geological phenomena. The 
major portion of this text is a refutation of the 
geological ideas of the ancient philosophers, the 
alchemists and the astrologers. It displays Agricola's 
wide ranging knowledge of the classic authors and his 
ability in observation and dialectics. But it is when 
Agricola presents his own ideas that new territory was 
established in science. 

Book I is devoted to a discussion of the origin 
and distribution of ground water and mineralizing 
jucies. The last portion of this book and that of Book 
II consider the origin of subterranean heat that he 



attributes to burning coal and sulfur and the friction 
subterranean winds against the walls of caves. Book III 
is devoted to the origin of ore channels, while Books IV 
&£ V describe in summary the principal divisions of the 
mineral kingdom as given in De Natura Fossilium. 

[В]. De Natura Eorum quee Effiuunt ex Terra in 
four books also appears here here for the first time. As 
the title indicates this is a discussion of substances that 
flow from the earth, such as water, bitumen, gases, etc. 
The major portion refers to color, taste, temperature, 
medicinal uses of water, and descriptions of rivers, lakes, 
swamps, and aqueducts. In the shadow of Agricola's 
other writings, it is a valueless and totally uninteresting 
treatise. 

[C]. De Natura Fossilium in ten books is Agricola's 
most important statement on mineralogy. It has always 
been printed in combination with other works, and this 
is its first edition. 

De Natura Fossilium is an epoch work often 
cited as the publication that marked the beginning 
of mineralogy as a science. In this work, Agricola 
approached the study of mineral substances in a 
naturalistic way. He rejected many myths associated 
with gems, and the system of classification that 
is inferred from his writings exhibits a degree of 
generalization not found in earlier handbooks. It 
is often considered the first attempt at systematic 
mineralogy, the minerals being grouped into (1) earths, 
like clay, ochre, etc., (2) stones like gems, semi— precious 
and unusual as distinguished from rocks, (3) congealed 
juices like salt, vitriol, alum, etc., (4) metals and 
(5) compounds being homogenous mixtures of simple 
substances and forming minerals like pyrite, galena, etc. 
Agricola applied physical properties such as solubility, 
fusibility, odor, taste, color, etc to distinguish between 
mineral varieties. He describes several varieties of earth, 
and arranged the descriptions according to the purpose 
for which they were used. Thus he speaks of earths 
used by farmers as different from those used by potters, 
sculptors, painters and physicians. This demonstrates 
that he had an awareness of problems connected with 
the classifying of similar substances. Agricola was 
a practical man and his great contribution was to 
mineral description. He codified much of the ancient 
knowledge, but in the case of theoretical mineralogy 
developed no new insights. References in contemporary 
books show that soon after Agricola mineralogical works 
were published, they were being cited as author atative 
sources. 

Book I describes the characteristics of minerals 
such as color, brillance, taste, shape, hardness, etc. 
Book II describes the earths and Book III reviews the 
minerals made of congealed juices, and includes salt, 
soda, potash, saltpetre, alurn, vitriol, orpiment, etc. 
Book IV treats camphor, bitumen, coal, amber, etc. 
Book V covers lodestone, bloodstone, gypsum, talc, 
asbestos, mica, géodes and various fossils, flourite and 
quartz. Book VI treats gems and other precious stones. 
Book VII in on rocks like marble, serpentine, onyx, 
alabaster, limestone, etc. Book VIII covers metals.

while Book IX describes various furnace observations 
such as making brass, gilding, tinning and furnace 
products like slag, copper flowers, etc. Book X covers 
compounds that embrace the description of a number of 
recognizable silver, copper, lead, quicksilver, iron, tin, 
antimony and zinc minerals. 

[D]. De Veteribus Sc Novis Metallis in two books is 
a short work that also appears here in a first edition. It 
describes mainly historical and geographical references 
to the occurances of metals and mines. Agricola had 
extracted this information from the Greek and Latin 
classic texts as well as the history of mines in Central 
Europe. The later material is the only original material, 
and is unfortunately not very extensive. 

[E]. Bermannus, sive De Re Metallica Dialogue in 
one book was Agricola's first published work in relation 
to mining, which was first published as an independent 
work at Basel in 1530. In this new edition, Agricola 
makes many important changes and adds some new 
material, but later editions often reprint the text of the 
1530 edition. The text of this work is in the form of 
a dialogue between "Bermannus," who is described as 
a miner, mineralogist and student of mathematics and 
poetry, and "Nicolaus Ancón" and "Johannes Neavius," 
both scholars and physicians. The main theme of the 
dialogue is the correlation of minerals mentioned by the 
ancient authors and those found in the Saxon mines. 
The three conversationalists wonder through the mines 
and discuss matters that come to their attention. There 
is no systematic or logical arrangement to the text, 
therefore. Occassionally, statements of historical or 
technical interest are included. The mineralogial part, 
while of importance for giving the first description of 
several minerals such as bismuth, is much improved in 
De Natura. Fossilium. 

[F]. Interpretatio Germanica uocum rei Metallicas 
is a translation list of German equivalents for the Latin 
mineralogical terms used by Agricola in his numerous 
writing. It first appeared in the collected edition of 
1546, being included in all subsequent editions. It 
consists of about 500 mineralogical and metallurgical 
terms in Latin, many of which were invented by Agricola 
to clarify his explanations. This work is of great value 
to the study of mineralogical nomenclature.

lator's describe Agricola's method of classifying minerals. 
This is then followed by the translation proper. Notes scat- 
tered throughout the text are intended to primarily help 
the identification of minerals whose present names differ 
from those used by Agricola. Occasionally, extracts from 
Agricola's Bermannus (Basileas, 1530), an introductory 
work on mining, have been included to add clarity to the 
translation.

Mark Chance Bandy. (BORN: Redfield, Iowa, U.S.A., 
22 July 1900; DIED: Wickenburg, Arizona, U.S.A., 3 June 
1963) American mining engineer & geologist. Bandy was 
educated in mining engineering and geology at Drake 
University (B.S., 1922), Columbia University (M.A., 1923), 
and Harvard (Ph.D., 1938). He worked as an engineer 
with Bethlehem Steel (1927-8), the Chile Exploration Co., 
(1929-34), and the Patino Mines (1936-47). He became 
an engineer, chief geologist, and general manager with 
ECA-Mining Engineers (1949-51) and general manager of 
the Rhodesia Copper Ventures (1952-4). He lecturer at 
St. Andrews University, Scotland in 1954-5. He was a 
Fellow in the Society of Economic Geologists and a member 
American Mineralogical Society, as well as an honorary 
member of the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain. The 
mineral "Bandylite" was named in his honor in 1935. His 
large and fine mineral collection accumulated through his 
many travels was acquired in 1963 by the Natural History 
Museum of Los Angeles County, where it is preserved today.

VERY SCARCE. This is the second edition of Agricola's 
collected works on mineralogy, geology and mining, and it 
is best edition being the last to be corrected and revised 
by the author. It consists of six separate treatises that had 
each appeared previously. 

[A]. De Ortu &c Causis Subterraneorum in five books 
has always been published in the company of other works. 
Its first appearance was in 1546, in the first edition of 
these collected treatises. However, in the present edition, 
the text has been revised, with new material added by 
Agrícola. 

[В]. De Natura Eorum quee Effluunt ex Terra in four 
books also had its first appearance in the first edition of 
1546. 

[C]. De Natura Fossilium in ten books is Agricola's 
most important statement on mineralogy. It has always 
been printed in combination with other works, and its 
first appearance was in the first edition of these collected 
treatises published in 1546. However, in this edition, 
Agrícola has considerably revised the text and added new 
material. 

[D]. De Veteribus & Novis Metallis in two books is a 
short work that also first appeared in the 1546 edition of 
collateral works. 

[E]. Bermannus, sive De Re Metallica Dialogue in one 
book was Agricola's first published work in relation to 
mining, which was first published as an independent work 
at Basel in 1530. In this edition, Agrícola makes many 
important changes and adds some new material, but later 
editions often reprint the text of the 1530 edition. 

[F]. interpretatio Germanica uocum rei Metallicae is 
a translation list of German equivalents for the Latin 
mineralogical terms used by Agrícola in his numerous 
writing. It first appeared in the collected edition of 1546, 
being included in all subsequent editions.

SCARCE. This edition of some of the collected works 
of Agrícola was brought together and edited by Johann 
Sigfrid [see note below]. The editor has renumbered most 
of the sections and made the text less exact than Agricola's 
original. In addition, Georg Fabricius 1565 work on metals 
is included. 

Johann Sigfrid. (BORN: 1556; DIED: 1623) German 

physician. Besides having a medical practice, Sigfrid was 
professor of anatomy at the University of Helmstedt.

SCARCE. The first collected edition of Agricola's 
works on mines, metallurgy, mineralogy and geology 
creating in effect an opera omnia of his technological 
writings. Contained therein are the fourth Latin editions 
of De Re Metallica and De Animantibus Subterraneis, and the 
sixth Latin editions of De Ortu S¿ Causis Subterraneorum, 
De Natura eorum quse efñuunt ex Terra, De Natura Fossilium, 
De Veteribus &: Novis Metallis, and Bermannus sive de Re 
Metallica, Dialogus. The original woodcuts used in the 
De Re Metallica (1st ed., Basileas, 1556) are a little worse 
for wear after over a century of life and the pagination is 
identical to the first printing since the 269 woodcuts have 
to be accommodated by the text. Only the De Animantibus 
Subterraneis had previously been published with the De Re 
Metallica.

RARE, especially in complete sets. Under the 

direction of the Freiberg publishing house of Craz &c 
Gerlach, Ernst Lehmann [see note below] prepared this 
translation of Agricola's mineralogical writings. The first 
volume is a translation of De Ortv Et Cavsis Svbterraneorvm, 
while the second is a rendering of De Natura Eorum. Quas 
Eíñuunt Ex Terra, the third in two parts is of De Natura 
Fossilium and the fourth is of De Veteribus Et Novis Metallis. 
Lehman has added commentary notes to the text. 

Ernst Johann Traugott Lehmann. (BORN: Baruth, 

Germany, 10 March 1777; DIED: Freiberg, Germany, 6 
December 1847) German mining expert. Lehmann held a 
variety of positions in mining at Freiberg, before being 
named an instructor and finally professor of mining at the 
famous Bergakademie of the city. He authored a systematic 
encyclopedia of mining science in 1804.

VERY SCARCE. De Re Metallica, is the first 
systematic treatment of mining and metallurgy and one 
of the most important technological volumes published 
in the sixteenth century. Written by Agrícola over 
the course of 20 years, the manuscript was probably 
completed by 1550; however, the hundreds of woodcut 
used for illustration delayed publication until after 
Agricola's death. Everything known by Agrícola 
concerning mining and metallurgical techniques is 
contained therein, including sections on prospecting, 
mine construction and administration, procedures for 
the manufacture of glass, alum and sulfur. The volume 
is further enhanced by the inclusion of two hundred and 
seventy-three magnificent, large woodcut illustrations 
by Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch depicting a large 
variety of mine and refinery processes, including water 
powered pumps, ore haulage, mine ventilation, furnace 
stoking, ore transportation, etc. 

A large number of minerals are mentioned by 
Agrícola, including many like bismuth for the first time. 
In addition, the mining and metallurgical processes 
described and illustrated are still at there core used even 
today. Also included are the author's last statement 
in Book V of physical geology, including his theories 
of the influence of water and wind on the shaping 
of the landscape, and a rather clear account of the 
stratification of rocks he saw within mines. His 
description of how the action of water erodes the 
landscape much in advance of his age.

VERY RARE. Translated by Philip Bech [see note 
below] from De Re Metallica (Basiliœ, 1556), and containing 
the same woodcut illustrations mostly by Rudolf Manuel 
Deutsch as the original edition. The Elector Augustus 
commanded that Agrícola have De Re Metallica rendered 
into German so that the mine workers, who did not know 
Latin, could make use of the work. It is a bad rendition, 
by one who knew nothing of the science, and who had no 
appreciation of the special Latin terms coined by Agrícola, 
most of which he translated literally. For example, the 
Hoover's call it "a wretched translation." But Bech, 
whose translation it was, admitted in many a point I am 
not satisfied with my translation. This is due to the 
shortness of the time and because I have not translated 
from Latin into German in former times. None the less, 
the text of this German edition was reprinted essentially 
unchanged in 1580 and again in 1621, with only new titles 
and preliminaries. These German editions appear to be 
much rarer than the Latin originals, no doubt owing to 
the fact that most miners and metallurgists found it more 
convenient to read the work in the vernacular.

RARE. Translation by Michelangelo Florio Fiorentino 
[see note below] of De Re Metallica (1st ed., Basiliœ, 1556). 
First Italian edition, using the same Hans Rudolf Deutsch 
woodcuts of Froben's Latin (1556, 1561) and German 
(1557) editions. The translator's dedication to England's 
Queen Elizabeth I (*2-*4) is usually not bound in. It 
appears that copies of this work sold in Italy had these 
leaves removed to avoid being censored as heretical. The 
relationship between the translator and the printer Froben 
is unknown. 

Michelangelo Florio Fiorentino. (BORN: 1525; DIED: 

1691) Italian translator. Fiorentino, an Italian Protestant 
who fled Italy for England, was the father of the 
Elizabethan writer John Florio [1553-1625], who produced 
the famous Worlde oí Wordes. He was patronized by Sir 
William Cecil and Cranmer, and produced several literary 
works.

AGUILERA, José Guadelupe. (Born: Mapimí, 
Durango, Mexico, 1857; DlED: Mexico City, Mexico, 
1941) Mexican geologist. 

In 1876, Aguilera moved to Mexico City to 
obtain a degree in assaying from that city's school 
of mines. While there he became proficient in the 
chemical analysis of minerals and subsequently, he was 
appointed custodian of the mineral and geology collections. 
He actively collaborated in the Comisión Geográfico 
Exploradora (founded 1878) and participated in the 
geological explorations of the states of Oaxaca, Tlaxcala 
and Puebla. In 1884, the government sent him to 
the Smithsonian Institution in Washington for extended 
studies. Upon his return, he was appointed to many 
positions of leadership in the geological exploration of 
Mexico. In 1886, Aguilera participated in the creation of 
the Instituto Geológico Nacional; he was its director from 
1895 to 1914. During his tenure, numerous publications 
describing the geology of Mexico were published under the 
oversight of the Instituto.

VERY SCARCE. Although dated, this work is 
perhaps the fullest treatment of the minerals of Mexico, 
giving a valuable catalog of the mineral species found 
in the country. It was printed as Instituto Geológico 
Mexico, Boletín No. 11. In it the minerals are arranged 
according to the classification system presented in 
Dana's System of Mineralog}' (6th ed., New York, 1892), 
with individual localities within Mexico being given 
fully in connection with each species. The book begins 
with a prolog where the author explains that the large 
quantity of mineral species found in Mexico made 
the country an obvious candidate for a topographical 
mineralogy. An overview of the mineralogical system 
is then presented, followed by a list of mineral species 
known to occur in Mexico together with their localities. 
Another section reverses the order by first listing the 
geographical location together with the species know 
to occur there. The volume closes with a list of 
abbreviations and an index to the species mentioned 
in the catalog.

AIKIN, Arthur. (BORN: Warrington, Lancashire, 
England, 19 May 1773; DIED: London, England, 15 
April 1854) English chemist & mineralogist. 

Aikin originally trained to be a Unitarian minister; 
however, under the influence of the chemist Joseph Priestly 
[1733-1804], he was convinced to persue a career in 
chemistry and mineralogy. Aikin edited from 1803 to 1808 
the Annual Review. He was a founding member of the 
Geological Society of London, and for many years held 
the position of its secretary. He was also secretary of the 
Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacturers and 
Commerce and the first treasurer and later president of the 
Chemical Society.

SCARCE. This is an account of an extensive 
tour made by Aikin throughout northern Wales in the 
summer of 1796. It was undertaken in part as a pleasent 
excursion and also partly to increase the author's 
mineralogical knowledge by examining the geological 
formations encountered along the way. A great number 
of mineralogical observations are included, but the 
volume is also gives vivid descriptions of the grandeur 
of the Welsh landscape, written in Aikin's familiar 
style. The text is divided into nineteen chapters, 
each describing observations made on a relatively short 
journey from one town to another.

SCARCE. Co-authored with Charles Rochemont 
Aikin [see note below]. "The intention has been to give 
a faithful and sufficiently detailed description of all the 
important facts hitherto discovered in the sciences of 
Chemistry and Mineralogy, enlarging more particularly 
on those parts which are of peculiar interest to the Man- 
ufacturer and to the Practical Chemist." (Preface). 

This work was written as a practical tool to guide 
the manufacturer and chemist, having been inspired by 
the Chimie Appliquée aux Arts of the French industrial 
chemist, Jean- Antoine Chaptal [1756-1832]. There- 
fore, almost all information regarding historical per- 
spectives and theoretical matters, including medicine, 
magenetism, galvantism, etc., has been omitted. De- 
scriptions of the procedures are always guided by what 
is known to work, with only slight speculation on the 
reason why. For many years during the industrial pe- 
riod, this was the premier dictionary in English on the 
described subjects. An appendix was also published 
[which see next entry]. 

Charles Rochemont Aikin. (BORN: Warrington, 

Lancashire, England, 1775; DIED: London, England, 20 
March 1847) English physician & chemist. Charles was the 
brother of Arthur Aikin. He was a member of the Royal 
College of Physicians and secretary of the London Medical 
and Chirurgical Society.

SCARCE. This work was based upon lectures 
Aikin delivered during the winter of 1814 before 
members of the Geological Society of London. It 
is written in a clear, lucid manner so that even 
a beginner could gain insight to the science. The 
introduction provides preliminary information about 
the science of mineralogy, including definitions and 
reasons why the science should be studied. An outline 
of the classification system proposed by the author 
is provided. This is followed by the descriptive 



mineralogy, which takes up the remainder of the work. 
The work deals principally with the procedures used 
to identify mineral substances. The author describes 
the properties that are peculiar to each mineral and 
how they might be used to distinguish between similar 
species. Aikin was one of the most accomplished 
mineralogists of his time, and the easy narrative 
he adopts throughout this work undoubtedly helped 
popularize mineralogical studies.

ALBERTUS DE SAXONIA. (BORN: Saxony, Ger- 
many, cl330; DIED: c1390) German theologian, philoso- 
pher & naturalist. 

Albertus was the son of a Saxon framer. He 
graduated from the University of Ph.iín and whs appointed 
the first Rector of the University of Vienna in 1365. 
Then from 1366 to 1390 he was Bishop of Halberstadt in 
Germany. As a logician, he was at the forefront of the 
movement that expanded the analysis of language based 
on the properties of terms, especially their reference (in 
Latin: suppositio), but also in the exploration of new 
fields of logic, especially the theory of consequences. As 
a natural philosopher, he contributed to the spread of 
Parisian natural philosophy throughout Italy and central 
Europe. Because of the authority of his name, the pseudo- 
Albertus Magnus work, Liber aggregationis or Secreta de 
herbis, lapidibus et mineralibus was sometimes issued under 
his name.

this is the only translation into a modern language 
of Arnoldus Saxo's major work, which is recognized 
as one of the first encyclopedias of the 13th century. 
Arnold was probably a doctor and teacher, who may 
well have known ALBERTUS MAGNUS. He was a 
privileged witness to the transmission of the Greek- 
Arabic texts as they spread through Europe after 
the Dark Ages. In particular the works of Aristotle 
captured his attention. Writing between 1220 and 1230, 
he authored a compilation of knowledge that he titled, 
De ñnibus rerum naturalium. Basing his text on the 
Latin translations of Greek and Arabic writings, he 
divided the material into five books: I. De coelo et 
mundo. IL De naturis animalium. III. De gemmarum 
virtutibus. IV. De virtute universali. V. De moralibus. 
The third part, or lapidary, was especially popular 
during the Middle Ages. In it he quotes Aristotle, 
Dioscorides, and "Aaron and Evax" (i.e., Marbode). 
It was used by Thomas of Cantimpré, Bartholornaeus 
Anglicus, Albertus Magnus, Vincent, of Beauvais, when 
writing their own works, but was not quoted except by 
the last named and by the anonymous author of the 
Hortus Sanitatis. It was also early on anonymously 
translated into Hebrew as, Sefer Ha-Abanim.

ALBERTUS MAGNUS. (BORN: Lauingen, Swabia, 
Germany, 1193; DIED: Cologne, Germany, 15 November 
1280) German naturalist & theologian. 

Albertus was one of the most famous authors of the 
High Middle Ages. He was born to a wealthy and powerful 
family, which provided him with a good Classical eduction. 
He studied liberal arts at Padua, where he came under the 
influence of Joranus of Saxony [7-1236], Master General 
of the Dominican Order. Against his family wishes, Albert 
vowed to a life of poverty and entered the Order, eventually 
being ordained a priest. Around 1241, he was sent to the 
University of Paris where he quickly rose to the post of 
Master of Theology. His devotion and knowledge soon 
lead to his appointment to establish in Cologne a studium 
generale. This education center was to occupy and consume 
Albertus for the remainder of his life; among his illustrious 
students were Thomas Aquinas [1227-1274], Thomas of 
Cantimpré [1201-after 1280] and Ulrich of Strassburg and 
Giles [7-1278]. In 1260 the Pope appointed Albertus Bishop 
of Regensburg, a post he resigned in 1262. The remainder 
of his long life was devoted to preaching, teaching and 
writing, primarily at Cologne. He was the most influential 
medieval educator of the Aristotelian philosphies, and 
through his position as provost at Cologne, he introduced

at other education centers. Albertus Magnus was canonized 
in 1931 by Pope Pius XI, who declared him Saint to all

Editio PRINCEPS. Extremely rare. Albertus 
Magnus set as his life's work to place all of Aristotle's 
extant writings into a coherent system and to reconcile 
the Greek philosophies with those of the Christian 
world. To attain this outcome, he scoured the libraries 
of every monastery he visited for any writings of the 
Ancients. In this quest he was rewarded with the 
discovery of several ancient works thought lost. These 
he had copied under his own eyes, thus preserving them 
for the future when they might not otherwise have 
survived. However, Albert's diligence did not locate any 
copy of what he thought was Aristotle's Lapidary, and 
what is now known to be a pseudo— Aristotelian work. 
He was therefore forced to write his own work dealing 
with minerals. The result is of remarkable interest as 
it shows not only what the state of mineralogy was in

Albertus Magnus 



the 13th century, but what Albert thought the science 
should be. 

The De Mineralibus [=Book of Minerals] is an 
reflection of the knowledge of minerals in the 13th 
century structured in the framework of ancient Greek 
doctrine. Following basic Aristotelian philosophy and 
guided only by the few lines devoted to mineral 
substances in Aristotle's Meteorológica, Albertus draws 
heavily upon his own observations and less so on other 
medieval and classical sources to describe minerals. 
Various duties of his religious Order caused him to 
take frequent trips throughout the territories of France, 
Germany and Italy. Along the literally thousands 
of miles traveled on foot by Albertus, he had many 
encounters with mines, miners and minerals. These 
impressions he retained in his memory until they were 
later recorded in this work. Consequently, when reading 
Albertus' words, there is no doubt as to the authority 
of his citations. One can only regret that the scope of 
the project was so great as to preclude observations of 
many phenomena. 

The De Mineralibus is divided into five books, 
dealing with stones (Books I— II), metals (Books III— 
IV), "intermediates" (Book V), which are neither stones 
nor metals, but have characteristics of both. In books, 
I, III and V the author follows classical philosophy by 
discussing minerals based upon their causes. This refers 
to the four causes distinguished by Aristotle as material 
(the matter from which minerals are made), efficient 
(the process by which minerals are made), formal (the 
form which minerals take, assumed by Albertus to 
be based on biological propagation), and final (the 
reason the mineral exists). In books, II, IV and V 
Albertus completes his plan by individually naming 
stones, metals, and "intermediates," and describing 
each in considerable detail. This type of catalog, 
alphabetically arranged on the name of the stone was 
popular in medieval herbáis and lapidaries and is a 
tradition that dates back at least to Pliny. Yet Albertus' 
De Aíineraübus is not a simple lapidary. Even though 
its background is based in medieval thought, with 
many errors, the structure of the text is recognizable 
in modern textbooks (i.e., the introduction of general 
principles giving the origin, and physical properties 
of minerals, followed by descriptions of individual 
minerals including appearance, place of occurrence, 
uses, etc.). With Albertus Magnus' mineralogy, the 
study of minerals begins to emerge from its embryonic 
period into a full fledged science. The tradition of 
magical and curative powers in gems still permeates the 
text, but one feels the author fighting the superstitions 
of the ancient beliefs, and seeing the world in a new, 
more skeptical and practical view.

RARE. An important collected edition of scientific 
writings by the great scientist philospher edited with notes 
added by the physician Marco Antonio Zimara [see note 
below]. Included are the author's books on mineralogy, 
astronomy, metaphysics, the intellect, etc. The volume 
is generously illustrated with woodcut scientific diagrams, 
and is one of the keystones in a long series of medieval 
scientific texts published by the heirs of Ottaviano Scoto 
in the early sixteenth century, mostly printed by Bonetus 
Locatellus [fl. 1486-1523]. The De Mineralibus, which 
includes works on chemistry and alchemy, precious stones 
and mineralogy generally is found in the second part. 

Ottaviano Scoto. (BORN: Monza, Italy, cl440; DIED: 
Venice, Italy, 1498/9) Italian publisher. Scoto headed 
a distinguished family of Venetian printers. Born of a 
noble family of Monza, he came to Venice at the age of 
35 and operated a press there between 1479 and 1484. 
He continued as an editor until 1498/9 whereupon his 
heirs, including his brothers and nephews, undertook their 
own activity (1499-1532). The original printer's mark of

History 



Albertus Magnus 



Ottaviano Scoto, was an elegant circle from whose center 
extended a double cross. Within the circle are the letters 
O.S.M, the initials of Octavianus Scotus Modoetiensis 
(Ottaviano Scoto of Monza). 

Marco Antonio Zimara. (BORN: Galatina, Italy, 1460; 
DIED: Padua, Italy, 1523) Italian physician. Although of 
humble origins, Zimara graduated from the University of 
Padua with degrees in philosophy and medicine. In 1507 
he was named professor ordinary at Padua, and in 1514 
he became mayor of Galatina. His last years were devoted 
to writing a guide to natural philosophy and metaphyisics 
contained in the works of Aristotle and Averroës.

Editio PRINCEPS. Extremely rare. As its Latin 
title suggests, Liber Aggreationis, or "book of collected 
items," The Book of Secrets is an anthology rather 
than a single work. The treatment of the subject 
matter is also sensational, reinforcing the popular myths 
about nature. It is divided into sections describing 
the marvellous properites of herbs, stones, and beasts. 
However, within each part the text is collected from 
a wide variety of sources. The text may be divided 
into these component parts: (1) On Herbs describes 16 
herbs described in terms of their magical properties, (2) 
On Stones repeats 45 entries from Albertus Magnus' 
Mineralia, which is followed by a single paragraph 
taken from the 7th century encyclopedist, ISIDORE OF 
SEVILLE, (3) On Beast, in which 18 beasts — animals, 
birds and fish are described, and (4) On the Astrological 
Influence of Planets containing a treatise on the hours 
of the day governed by the various planets. In later 
editions of The Book of Secrets another formerly 
independent treatise describing "The Marvels of the 
World" is soetimes appended. 

Although the preface and a passage at the end 



of the section dealing with beasts attribute this as an 
original work of Albertus Magnus, it is very different 
from the other known writings of him. It was written, 
however, contemporary with Albertus or shortly after 
he died; the earliest surviving manuscripts are from the 
late 13th century, and Albertus died in 1279. It may 
be that The Book of Secrets was written by a follower 
of Albertus; certainly, as Thorndike writes, "There 
can be little doubt that it pretends to be a product 
of his experimental school among the Dominicans at 
Cologne." Sometimes the text as been attributed 
wrongly to Albertus de Saxonia [which see note below]. 

Secrets in literature became a popular tradition 
during the Middle Ages; texts of this type were written 
for the popular audience, not scholarly persuit. Despite 
the scorn of the scholars, however, this literature 
capitalized on the prestige associated with the great 
scholars of the past including Albertus Magnus. They 
each have many works spuriously attributed to them. 
This is not suprising when one realizes that the 
intellectual climate constrained many scholars to cast 
their writings in the form of commentaries on the 
works of the ancients. For example, the whole of 
Albertus' vast output was intended by the author to 
be a commentary on Aristotle, though it contains much 
original work. 

The most interesting fact about the Liber 
Aggregationis is not that it was written but that 
it enjoyed wide popularity for so long. With the 
introduction of mechanical printing this work became 
an incunubula best seller with more than 45 editions 
being published before 1501. It was perennially 
translated, reworked and edited for four more centuries 
with the last edition appearing in 1937. 

The Liber Aggregationis was one of the most 
widely known and republished works in the literature 
that gained popularity during the Middle Ages. The 
demand for this work is demonstrated by the survival 
of a large number of manuscripts dating from as early 
as the 12th century and by the fact that several of 
these continued to be copied, anthologized, translated 
into the incunubula period. With the invention of 
printing the Liber Aggregationis was issued in more 
than fifty Latin editions during the 15th Century, with 
the first dated edition making its appearance in 1478 
from the press of Johann Schriber of Bologna. During 
the incunubula period it also appeared in Italian, 
Catalan, and French versions. Commonly, the Liber 
Aggregationis was also bound with Albertus Magnus' 
De Mirabiíibus Mundi and the Parvurn Regimen 
Sanitatis. 

Albertus de Saxonia. (BORN: Saxony, Germany, cl330; 
DIED: c1390) German theologian, philosopher & naturalist. 
Albertus was the son of a Saxon frarner. He graduated 
from the University of Paris and was appointed the first 
Rector of the University of Vienna in 1365. Then from 
1366 to 1390 he was Bishop of Halberstadt in Germany. 
As a logician, he was at the forefront of the movement 
that expanded the analysis of language based on the 
properties of terms, especially their reference (in Latin: 
suppositio), but also in the exploration of new fields of 
logic, especially the theory of consequences. As a natural

natural philosophy throughout Italy and central Europe. 
Because of the authority of his name, the pseudo-Albertus

Aldrovandi 



ALDROVANDI, Ulysse. (Born: Bologna, Italy, 11 
September 1522; DIED: Bologna, Italy, 10 May 1605) 
Italian botanist & natural historian. 

Aldrovandi is regarded as one of the foremost 
zoologists of the Renaissance. He was born of a respectable 
burgher family and it was intended he should become a 
merchant. However, the work attracted him so little he 
began studying first jurisprudence in Bologna and then 
philosophy and medicine at Padua and Rome, receiving 
the degree of Doctor of Medicine in 1552. In 1560, 
he was appointed professor of natural history at the 
University of Bologna, where he remained the next 40 
years, until his death. As a professor he was a favorite 
lecturer of the students, and his talks on botany and 
pharmacology were heavily attended. In order to provide 
teaching aids for his lectures, he founded in 1568 the 
Bologna City Gardens and became its first director. About 
this period, he was also appointed inspector of drugs 
and as a consequence published, Antidotara Bononiensis 
Epitome (Вопошээ, 1615), which became a model for many 
subsequent pharmacopœdias. 

Throughout his adult life, Aldrovandi spent his 
financial and leisure resources in the accumulation of a very 
large collection of natural history objects. He employed 
the artists of the city to create woodcuts of the objects 
for use in a series of large, beautifully illustrated books, 
covering the natural history spectrum. However, at his 
death, only four volumes had been published. Before he 
died though, the Bologna City goverment, in recognition 
of his scientific contributions, had doubled his salary. 
In gratitude, Aldrovandi bequeathed his collections and 
unpublished manuscripts to the city, where today the 
remains are located in the city's library and museum. This 
was also a shrewd move because after his death, the city 
decided to continue the publication of the manuscripts. 
The result is that all of the various researches are embodied 
in Aldrovandi's Opera Omnia (Вопошээ, 1599-1668), which 
consists of 14 large folio volumes, covering all aspects of 
natural history, and forming one of the great scientific 
works of the seventeenth century.

VERY SCARCE. Edited by Bartolomeo Ambrosini 




Mvsaevm Metallicvm, 1648. 

[see note below]. Some forty years after he died, 
Aldrovandi's Musaeum Adetallicurn was published as 
a thick folio volume. Since his death, the work 
had existed as a manuscript, "Geológica ovvero 
Fossilibus" in the library collections of the University of 
Bologna, which had been bequeathed all of Aldrovandi's 
manuscripts. Even unpublished, many scholars studied 
it as a resource for their own researches. The value 
others placed upon Aldrovandi's material did not go 
unnoticed, which is why a former student of the author, 
Bartolomeo Ambrosini was entrusted by the Bologna 
senate to edit the material Aldrovandi had accumulated 
and oversee its publication. The final product is a 
superb book. 

The work consists of a single volume divided into 
four books: on metals, earths, succi concreti (concrete 
juices), and stones (minerals, rocks, and fossils). Within 
each of these books, whole chapters are devoted to the 
consideration of a single "fossil." In a style typical of 
its time, each chapter then describes the fossil's medical 
properties, synonyms, localities, origins, varieties, and 
uses. Aldrovandi includes references to classical and 
medival authors through out the volume in a fashion 
that anticipated modern scholars by compiling long 
lists of authorities but omitting those commonly cited 
(Partington, 1961—70). The antiquarian nature of the 
book commonly gives the names and descriptions of 
the items listed a strange, unrecognizable character.

However, Foresti (1887) attempted to ease the struggle 
by matching relatively modern names to Aldrovandi's. 
The comprehensive index included at the end of 
Musaeum Metallicum also makes this a reader friendly 
book. 

Perhaps the most outstanding feature for the 
connoiseur of minéralogie literature are the several 
hundered woodcuts scattered throughout the volume. 
Some of these are full page but most are smaller, with 
many possessing a quaint, interesting character. These 
figures are designed to illustrate features described 
in the text, but since minerals do not easily lend 
themselves to illustration, the pictures "rather require 
the text to explain them" (Adams, 1934). That 
Aldrovandi was a man of accumulation is clearly shown 
by his inclusion of all facts that came to his attention 
without apparently any critical faculty to distinguish 
between the true and imaginary, the important and 
nonessential. A great amount of scientific value is 
contained in Musaeum Metallicum but an overburden 
must be removed to discover those nuggets. In truth, 
the author was a product of his time. The influence 
of the church and other authorities did not bind his 
writings and ideas as they had past authors, "and so," 
as Adams (1934) writes, "one gathers the impression 
that he was writing at the opening of a new age ..." 

Bartolomeo Ambrosini. (BORN: 1587; DIED: 1688) 

Italian physician & botanist. Ambrosini was a pupil 

of Aldrovandi, who successively became professor of 
philosophy, botany and medicine at the University of 
Bologna. He also became director of that city's botanical 
gardens.

Synopsis Muséum Metallicum, 1701 

David Kellner [see note below] of Mvsaevm Metallicvm 
(Bononiœ, 1648). The work is divided into two books. The 
first (page 1-67) is "De Metallis in genere," which gives 
an overview of metals, their origins, reason for existance, 
etc. The second book (pages 68-258), titled "De Metallis 
in specie," gives detailed descriptions of various metals, 
including notes on the both the physical and mystical 
properties. 

David Kellner. (BORN: Gotha, Germany, 16 — ; 

DIED: 17 — ) German physician. Kellner studied medicine 
in Helmstedt, receiving his M.D. in 1670 (or 1673). He 
worked in Nordhausen, and may have been a physician 
to the court. The second of his surgical dissertations is 
dedicated to Johann Langguth, a physician in the service 
of Duke Ernst of Saxony. It is possible that Langguth 
advanced Kellner in his work. He dedicates one of his books 
to Johann Scheib, the surgeon and barber of Gotha (the 
prince's city of residence) whom Kellner calls his friend and 
patron. He authored several treatises concerning mining, 
assaying and metallurgy.

capturing Cadiz in 1262. Through his sponsorship, a 
translation of Old Testament was prepared by Jews of 
Toledo and the first history of Spain written. His policies

banker. 

Allan accumulated a large mineral collection that was 
subsequently bequeathed to his son Robert. This collection 
was later incorporated into ROBERT Greg's, which is now 
in the British Museum of Natural History. In 1813, 
Allan was influential in securing a mineralogy post in the 
Dublin Philosophical Society for K.L. GlESECKE. Allan 
wrote "Diamond" for the fifth edition of the Encyclopedia 
Britannica. Allan was elected a Fellow of the Royal Societies 
of London and Edinburgh. He also recognized a new 
mineral species from Greenland, which in 1810 was named 
"Allanite" in his honor by Thomas Thomson.

each mineral species. 

RARE. Although assigned the title of "First edition" 
in most bibliographies, this clearly is the second revision 
after the previous item. The introduction is signed T. 
Allan. This is one of the earliest attempts in English 
to compare and clarify the mineralogical nomenclature 
used by various authors. "As no rules have yet been 
established, by which mineralogical nomenclature can be 
regulated, every new work makes a considerable addition 
to the unwieldy stock of synonymes already in use; and 
the numerous valuable publications, which have recently 
appeared on mineralogy, have increased the perplexity 
arising from this circumstance to such a degree, that 
the science has been plunged into difficulties, which 
cannot fail to bewilder, particularly, the young student." — 
Introduction. 

In this work, Allan first gives an alphabetical list of 
the mineral species names used by Kirwan, Jameson, Haiiy, 
Brochant, Lucas and Brongniart. He has then added tables 
showing the composition of all the minerals that had been 
submitted to chemical analysis. These tables are divided 
into four classes I. Saline, II. Earthy, III. Inflammable and 
IV. Metallic, with the minerals arranged alphabetically 
within their respective tables. 

Apparently two issues of this edition exist. This one, 
with "Caledonian Mercury Press" imprinted on the title, is 
not listed in BLC. Instead, they describe an issue with the 
imprint of "Canterbury Press" on the title page.

idea of this little Work originated in the difficulty I 
experienced when the study of Mineralogy first engaged 
my attention. I was then so perplexed with the variety 
of Synonymous Terms which were indiscriminately made 
use of, that I was induced to frame a small manuscript 
vocabulary to assist my memory. This was afterwards 
committed to the press; and since that time so great an 
addition has been made, not only to the number of known 
minerals, but to the original stock of names, that a work of 
this kind requires to be renewed, were it only to keep pace 
with the alterations which time has introduced." (Preface).

RARE. Edited by Archibald Bruce [see note 
below], The American Mineralogical Journal was the 
first periodical in America devoted exclusively to 
scientific subjects. Although its existence was short 
lived, from 1810 to 1814, it was recognized early in its 
history to give reliable information about the mineral 
deposits and recently discovered geological phenomena 
of America. In 1814 the four issues already published 
were collected together into a single volume. Then 
due to Bruce's deteriorating health, publication ceased, 
although the editor optimistically believed that his 
Journal would someday continue. Unfortunately, he 
never regained sufficient strength to resume his editorial 
duties and only after his death in 1818, was his vision 
realized. This new magazine edited by Bruce's good 
friend Benjamin Silliman of Yale increased its format 
to include all forms of science, including mineralogy 
and geology, and thus became the oracle for nineteenth 
century American science. The title it took on its 
debut in 1818 was: The American Journal of Science, 
More Especially of Mineralogy, Geology, and the Other 
Branches of Natural History; Including Also Agriculture 
and the Ornamental as well as the Useful Arts.

Archibald Bruce. (BORN: New York City, New York, 
U.S.A., February 1777; DIED: New York City, New York, 
U.S.A., 22 February 1818) American chemist & mineralogist. 
Bruce's father was head of the medical department of the 
British Army stationed in New York City. He was educated 
at a boarding school on Long Island before entering 
Columbia College in 1791, receiving his A.B. degree in 
medicine in 1797. One of medical professor's was David 
Hosack who had returned from Europe with a substantial 
mineral collection. Soon, Hosack infected Bruce with his 
enthusiasm for minerals, which quickly became Bruce's 
favorite leisurely pursuit. In 1798, Bruce sailed for Great 
Britain to study medicine at the University of Edinburgh. 
He was awarded the degree of M.D. in 1800, after which 
he toured France, Switzerland, Italy and England. During 
this tour, he became acquainted with all of the leading 
mineralogists of France and England. In 1803, he married 
in London and returned to America, where he opened a 
successful medical practice. In 1807, Bruce and several 
others founded the College of Physicians and Surgeons, 
now Columbia University's Medical School. In this venture 
Bruce was a trustee, 1807-11, registrar, 1807-11, professor 
of mineralogy, 1807-8 and professor of materia medica, 
1808-11. In 1812, Bruce and others again founded a new 
medical school associated with Rutgers. There he was 
professor of mineralogy and materia medica, 1812-8. He 
died of apoplexy in 1818. Bruce's mineral collection sold 
for the large sum (in that time) of $5,000, which indicates 
a high quality of specimen. His name is perpetuated by the 
mineral "Brucite" named in his honor by F.S. Beudant in 
1819.

VERY RARE. A standard textbook of mineralogy, 
divided into 24 lessons. The introductory material 
covers the usual topics of physical and chemical 
properties, nomenclature, and classification methods. 
The descriptive portions classifies the mineral species 
using a new approach developed by the author. Here 
Amondieu makes use of the chemical and physical 
properties of the mineral to classify its species, in an 
approach that he asserts follows the manner of nature. 
Considering its popular style approach to the subject 
this is a suprisingly scarce work.

ANDERSON, Charles. (Born: Moa, Stenness, 
Orkney Islands, Scotland, 5 December 1876; DIED: Syd- 
ney, Australia, 25 October 1944) Scottish mineralogist. 

Anderson attended Kirkwall Burgh School and the 
University of Edinburgh (M.A., 1898, B.Sc, 1900, D.Sc, 
1908). He was appointed mineralogist at the Australian 
Museum, Sydney, 22 July 1908. His doctorial dissertation 
was on the chemistry and crystallography of minerals 
from Australia. Anderson was appointed director of the 
Australian Museum, 14 February 1921, and switched his 
field of research to vertabrate palaeontology, in which made 
notable contributions — particularly the reclassification of 
Meiolania (the extinct horned turtle). He held membership 
in many Australian scientific societies. It is recorded that 
Anderson had a whirniscal sense of humor and simple 
tastes, and "when measuring crystals on the goniometer, 
an intricate piece of apparatus, his favorite song was 'There 
was a wee cooper who lived in Fife,/Nicketty, nacketty, noo, 
noo, noo.'" .

ANTHONY, John Williams. (Born: Brockton, 
Massachusetts, U.S.A., 25 November 1920; DIED: El 
Paso, Texas, U.S.A., 8 November 1992) American 
geologist & mineralogist. 

Anthony began his geology degree at Brown 
University before World War II. The war intervened, 
however, and only after his service did he move to Tucson, 
Arizona, where he earned his B.S. in geology in 1946. This 
was followed by an M.S. in 1951, and in 1965, a Ph.D. 
from Harvard University where he studied under CLIFFORD 
Frondel. In 1946, he accepted a position as mineralogist 
with the Arizona Bureau of Mines, which he retained until 
1951. The experience gave him an expert knowledge of 
the mineralogy of Arizona. From 1951 until 1964 he rose 
from Assistant to Associate Professor of geology at the 
University of Arizona. In 1964 he was appointed a full 
professor at that institution — a position he kept until his 
retirement in 1983. Anthony held membership in the 
Mineralogical Society of America, the Geological Society of 
America, and the American Crystallographic Association. 
His specialty was the mineralogy and economic geology 
of the American southwest, as well as experimental and 
descriptive mineralogy. The mineral species "Anthonyite" 
was name in his honor by S.A. Williams in 1985.

VERY SCARCE. Co-authored with Richard A. 
Bideaux, Kenneth W. Bladh and Monte C. Nichols [see 
notes below], and continued on after Anthony's death 
by these individuals. This is one of the most important 
and valuable mineralogical references published in the 
late 20th and early 21st centuries, and eclipsed in 
its treatment of the subject only by C.A.F. HlNTZE's 
monumental Handbuch der Mineralogie (Leipzig, 1898- 
1933). This modern Handbook series, complete in 
five volumes, encapsulates critical data about each 
valid mineral species. It was conceived in order 
to gather in one convenient place data critical to 
identification of all mineral species, and to provide 
relatively up-to-date references for each species listed. 
The intention is to provide sufficient information for 
the professional or amateur to distinguish one mineral 
species from another. Pertinent facts for each species 
have been distilled to one page and consist of the 
name, idealized chemical formula, crystal data, physical 



properties, optical properties, cell data, X-ray powder 
pattern, chemistry, polymorphism &¿ series, occurrence, 
association, distribution, name origin, location of 
type material and reference citations. This structure 
contains much of what is known about each mineral 
species, and as a mineralogical reference is unsurpassed 
in its thoroughness during modern times. 

It is also a book valuable to amateur and 
professionals alike. It is fun as well as educational to 
browse the contents of these volumes and marvel at 
the variety of minerals and to consider their physical 
characteristics and the origin of their names. It is an 
especially valuable work for giving complete references 
and comparative chemical data for even rare species. 
In addition, the authors' expertise in judging specimen 
quality provides excellent source material for exact 
locality information where the best specimens have 
been found. This work is certainly one of the finest 
mineralogical treatises ever published, and hence its 
inclusion in this Biobibliography even though it is 
published well past the terminal date of 1920. 

Richard August Bideaux. (BORN: Tucson, Arizona, 

U.S.A., 28 March 1935; DIED: Prescott, Arizona, U.S.A., 26 
October 2004) American mineralogist & pioneer in geological 
computer applications. Bideaux is a graduate of the 
University of Arizona (B.S., Geological Engineering, 1959) 
and received his M.A. in geology from Harvard University 
in 1968. He discovered and helped to describe several 
new mineral species. As a field collector, he along with 
collecting partner, Richard L. "Dick" Jones [1933—1982] 
preserved many notable Arizona specimens, including fine 
examples of Defiance and Glove Mine wulfenite. He was 
employed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory during the 
Surveyor missions to the moon, and was responsible for 
processing imaging data of the first pictures received by 
the U.S.A. from a heavenly body other than the earth. He 
returned to Tucson, Arizona in the late 1960's and founded 
Computing Associates with two partners. This company 
was a pioneer in computer applications in geology and 
mining engineering, and was responsible for determining 
the ore reserves of many mining companies throughout the 
world. As a consequence of his achievements in this area, 
in 1978 the University of Arizona bestowed on him the 
professional degree of Geological Engineer. Throughout 
most his life he has collected mineral specimens. A large 
portion of the fine collection he built was dispersed through 
Kristalle in 1985. He is a life fellow of the Mineralogical 
Society of America and a member of the Arizona Geological 
Society. The mineral species "Bideauxite" was named in 
his honor by S.A. Williams in 1970. 

Kenneth William Blahd. (BORN: Chicago, Illinois, 

U.S.A., 7 November 1947; DIED: ) American 

geologist & mineralogist. Bladh received his B.A. from 
Wittenberg University in 1969 and his M.S. and Ph.D. from 
the University of Arizona in 1973 and 1978, respectively. 
He is an expert in descriptive mineralogy and the low 
temperature geochemistry of weathering processes. He 
has been an Assistant Professor of Geology at Wittenberg 
University since 1978. Bladh in a member of the 
Mineralogical Society of America, the Geological Society 
of America, the Mineralogical Association of Canada and 
Sigma Xi. 

Monte C. Nichols. (BORN: Davenport, Iowa, U.S.A., 
1938; DIED: ) American chemist. American 

chemist. Nichols was educated at the University of Arizona 
(B.S., Chemistry, 1960; M.S., Physical Chemistry, 1962). 
Formerly, he was a senior member of the technical staff, 
materials department, Sandia National Laboratories and 
winner of R&D 100 awards in 1986, 1988 and 1991 for

SCARCE. Published anonymously, but attributed 
to James Apjohn. The preface provides a short history 
of earlier catalogs of the collection, before presenting 
an overview of the methods adopted in this work. 
Apjohn uses the arrangement of Beudant as outlined 
in the Traité de Minéralogie (2nd ed., Paris, 1830-1). 
Thus the collection is arranged in thirty-two sections, 
corresponding to the families of Beudant. Within 
each family, the genera and species represented in the 
specimens of the collection are described. An index at 
the end gives an alphabetical arrangement of the species 
mentioned.

ARBOLAYRE (or Grant Herbier). 

A French herbal that was supposedly a translation 
of one of the early German herbáis. Although the earliest 
edition (issued under the title "Arbolayre") was illustrated 
with German cuts formerly used in an edition of the Gart 
der Gesundheit, the text is completely different from the 
German and Latin Hortus. Subsequent editions were issued 
under the title, Grant Herbier.

in 1525 has no illustrations. 

The text consists of chapters i-cccccv. With the 
exception of the preface and the treatise on urines, the 
Grete Herball is a translation of the French Grand Herbier 
or Arbolayre. The preface and the treatise on urines 
show a strong resemblance to the corresponding parts of 
the German Gart. This English issue is important for 
presenting on the early English names of plants. The 
woodcuts of the plants are copied from the those in the 
Dutch herbáis, probably the 1511 edition. The skeleton is 
copied from Grüninger's cut. 

The title page cut shows a charming woodcut of a 
garden, with a man holding a spade and gathering grapes, 
and a woman throwing flowers and herbs out of her apron 
into a basket. Figures of female and male mandrake in the 
lower corners. The title cut and the text cuts reappear 
in the Dutch Gart der Gesundheit edition of 1538, issued 
in Ultrecht by Jan Bernts printed from the same blocks. 
Complete copies are exceptionally rare.

ARDUINO, Giovanni. (BORN: Caprino, Italy, 16 
October 1714; DIED: Venice, Italy, 21 March 1795) 
Italian geologist. 

Arduino was educated at Verona, Italy. He was 
employed with the goverment mining service, becoming 
director of mining works in Tuscany. He was appointed 
professor of mineralogy and metallurgy at Venice, and later 
Padua. Ardunio was the first to classify rocks as Primary, 
Secondary and Tertiary, 1760, and also the first to recognize 
the volcanic origin of crystalline rocks. Arduino recognized 
the benefit of applying chemistry and paleontology to the 
chronology of geological formations for age dating purposes.

QVILATADOR, 1572 

VERY RARE. A mineralogy designed to instruct 
ladies in the science of mineralogy. The text discusses 
the collecting of mineral and natural history specimens, 
differences between false and genuine gemstones, 
lapidary craft, and jewelery manufacturing. At the 
end is a discussion cast into a coversation between two 
girls about the collecting of specimens and the value of 
forming collections. The tone of the text suggests that 
the pseudonym used by the author was to hide her true 
gender.

VERY RARE. One of the earliest published texts 
devoted to the subject of petroleum, this curious tract 
was published from manuscript material written over 
two centuries earlier. Oligerus Jacob,EUS, the editor, 
dedictates the work to the famous Italian bibliophile 
Antonio Magliabecchi [1633-1714]. Pages 9-12 contains 
"a preface to the reader giving some account of this 
mineral oil, or naphtha, found at Mons Zibius, Gybius, 
or Zilius, in the Modenesse territory, comparing it with 
naphtha from India and indicating certain analogies 
with amber. There is next a short biographical sketch- 
in Italian— of Ariostus, written by Antonio Libanori and 
communicated by Magliabecchi. The tract itself (pp. 



18-38) gives an account of the oil, and then (pp. 38-76) 
a description of cures effected by the use of it. The work 
concludes (pp. 77-79) with a presentation letter from 
Ariostus to Duke Borsius dated December, 1462, and 
the Duke's reply, after with is the Index." (Ferguson).

Aristotle 



ARISTOTLE. (BORN: Stagira, Chaldice, near Mace- 
don, Greece, 384 B.c.; DIED: Chalcis, Island of Euboea, 
Greece, 322 b.c.) Greek philosopher. 

Aristotle was the son of Nicomachus, physician to 
King Amynas II of Macedón. He became a student of 
Plato, at the Athens Academy, 367-347 B.C.E. Afterward 
he traveled throughout the Greek world, especially Asia 
Minor, 347-342 B.C.E. He was appointed by Phillip II of 
Macedón to be tutor to his son (later called Alexander 
the Great). Aristotle founded and was a teacher of the 
Lyceum (or Peripatos) in Athens, 335-323 B.C.E. In 323 
B.C.E., he retired to Chalcis upon death of his guardian, 
Alexander the Great. He is the founder of the systematic 
study of symbols and logic and theory of symbolism 
which enabled him to develop logic as a science. He 
collected facts about the natural world around him through 
personal observation. These he then recorded in a series of 
monographs which were handed down through manuscript 
until the invention of printing. Aristotle, as a teacher, had 
great influence on his students, with his ideas and ideas 
attributed to him, becoming the cornerstone of western 
science and philosophy for one and a half millennia.

Editio PRINCEPS. Extremely rare. The 

Lapidarius was the first lapidary printed after the 
invention of mechanical printing, and this is the second 
book printed at Merseberg. It is attributed to Aristotle 
being called the "Lapidarius et Liber de physionomia 
of Aristotle," but was composed long after his death 
because the text refers to more recent authorities such 
as Rasis and Albertus Magnus, and alludes to the 
mountains of Lombardy, St. Gotthard, a castle in 
Saxony, and to the river Saale which flows in Franconia 
and is called the Christian Saale, and that which 
descends towards Saxony and is known as the pagan 
Saale. It is a work entirely devoted to precious stones 
and physiognomy, "written in honor of Wenzel II, king 
of the Bohemians" [1266-1305]. The manuscript is 
preservered as a fifteenth- century text in the Public 
Library, Bern (MS. 513) as an anonomous physiognomy. 
It is an entirely different text from the Lapidary of 
Aristotle published by Julius Ruska at Heidelberg in 
1912 [which see next entry]. 

The work is divided into three parts. In the 
first is treated the Lapidarius of Aristotle in the new 
translation from the Greek with all the other lapidaries 
and their statements as to the colors, virtues, and place 
of generation of each stone. The second part describes 
how the virtues of precious stones are increased and 
altered according to diverse situations, such as wearing 
them on the finger or in the armpit, or combining them 
with other things and engraving characters on them. 
The third part is devoted to physiognomy itself. 

The printing of this work has been assigned to the 
printer Lukas Brandis [see note below]. 

Lukas Brandis. (BORN: ; DIED: ) German 

printer. In 1475, Brandis published at Lübeck a world 
history, which was the first title published in this city.

Editio PRINCEPS. Extremely rare. The first

of De Anima, Metaphysica, De Ccelo, De Generatione, 
Meteorológica, Parva Naturalia, S¿ Physica appeared 
between 1472 and 1474 from the press of Laurentius 
Canozius in Padua. The Meteora (often spelled 
with an 'h', Metheora) presents in three books an 
investigation of "things aloft," and includes studies of 
the stars, comets, winds, the lower atmostphere, and 
then proceeds to an account of related phenomena 
like weather, tides, earthquakes, climatic changes. A 
fourth book is concerned with chemical change and 
the properties of matter and bares some measure in 
mineralogy. Ten diagrams illustrate the text and a map 
summarizes Aristotle's views on the habitable zones of 
the earth.

Incipit Leaf of Aristotle's Opera, 1472-4 

The fourth book of the Meteorológica occupies 
a strange position in the list of the Stagirite's works. 
The first three books are concerned with meteorological 
phenomena as explained by the actions and affectivities 
of the moist and dry exhalations, and all such 
phenomena are ascribed to these agencies. Moreover, at 
the end of the third book a promise is made to furnish a 
study of the exhalations as they occur inside the earth. 
There two classes of matter are to be discussed, those 
bodies that are mined and those that are quarried. 
But the promised discussion nowhere appears in the 
extant works of Aristotle. However, around 1200 a.D. 
a fourth book began to appear in the manuscripts of 
the Meteorológica. It writing was such that it was 
accepted as a genuine work of the master, but research 
in the early 20th century show conclusively that this 
fourth book is actually the "De Mineralibus" authored 
by AviCENNA. 

Avicenna's work is partly a direct translation and 
partly a résumé of passages in from Avicenna's Kitâb 
al-shifâ' (Book of the remedy). It was translated by 
Alfred of Sareshel in the 13th century. On the surface 
it describes the formation of minerals and mountains. 
From a scientific point of view, Avicenna's opinions 
on the formation of stone, rocks, and mountains are 
remarkably interesting in that they show an astonishing 
insight into the geological process. He is clear and 
concise in his remarks on the nature of minerals and in 
particular is ruthless in his criticism of the alchemists 
and their attempt to transmute the base metals into

gold. 

In this the first printing of all four books 
of Aristotle's Meterologica there is contained a 
commentary by Averröes [see note below] on Book IV 
only. 

Averröes. (BORN: Cordova, Spain, 1126; DIED: 

Morocco, 1198) Arabian philosopher, astronomer & writer on 
jurisprudence. Averröes (Arabic: Abul Walid Mahommed 
Ibn Achmed, Ibn Mahommed Ibn Rushd) was educated 
in his native city, where his father and grandfather 
had held the office of cadi (judge in civil affairs) and 
had played an important part in the political history 
of Andalusia. He devoted himself to jurisprudence, 

medicine, and mathematics, as well as to philosophy and 
theology. Under the Califs Abu Jacub Jusuf and his 
son, Jacub Al Mansur, he enjoyed extraordinary favor 
at court and was entrusted with several important civil 
offices at Morocco, Seville, and Cordova. Later he fell 
into disfavor and was banished with other representatives 
of learning. Shortly before his death, the edict against 
philosophers was recalled. Many of his works in logic 
and metaphysics had, however, been consigned to the 
flames, so that he left no school, and the end of the 
dominion of the Moors in Spain, which occurred shortly 
afterwards, turned the current of Averoism completely into 
Hebrew and Latin channels, through which it influenced 
the thought of Christian Europe down to the dawn of the 
modern era. Averoes' great medical work, "Culliyyat" 
(of which the Latin title "Colliget" is a corruption) was 
published as the tenth volume in the Latin edition of 
Aristotle's works, Venice, 1527. His "Commentaries" on 
Aristotle, his original philosophical works, and his treatises 
on theology have come down to us either in Latin or Hebrew 
translations.

Secret is Secret orum 

One of the chief characteristics of medieval literature is 
the degree to which anonymous and pseudonymous texts 
were diffused and read. The most striking example is 
the immense literature in a variety of languages which 
surrounds Alexander the Great's teacher, the philosopher 
Aristotle, to whom were attributed many different works 
with little or no claim to authenticity. In addition to the 
approximately forty genuine Aristotelian works known in 
Latin or vernacular versions during the Middle Ages, there 
were more than a hundred other works attributed to the 
master at some time during the same centuries. Some 
of the Latin versions are based upon Greek texts already 
attributed to Aristotle in Antiquity, others derive from 
Hebrew or Arabic roots, while others again seem to be 
original Latin works which became attached to the name 
of Aristotle at some time in their history. The most widely 
diffused of all these works is the one which bears the Latin 
title Secretum Secretorum. It enjoyed immense influence and 
the widest circulation from at least the tenth (and quite 
probably significantly before) to the seventeenth century, 
with more localized influence enduring even longer.

Aristotle 



Not all of the Secretis Secretorum éditons published 
under Aristotle's name contain the tract on mineralogy. In 
fact, apparently none of the dozen or so incunubula editions 
appear to include it. The first appearance of the work in 
a published edition of the Secretis Secretorum occurs in the 
1501 edition. 

245. Latin, 1501 [First edition].

Hectoris. / Anno. dñi. 1501 ... 26 / octob / Printer's

VERY RARE. Edited by Alexandri Achillini [see 
note below], this text contains seven treatises on 
medicine and philosophy: Secreta secretorum; De signis 
aquarum, ventorum et tempestatum; De mineralibus; 
Alexander Aphrodisei de intellectu; Averoes de 
beatitudine anime; Alexandri Achillini de universalibus 
and Alexandri Macedonis ad Aristotelem de mirabilibus 
Indie. Four of these are pseudo- Aristotelian works, 
which were well known since the 13th century or 
earlier. The Secreta secretorum is here present in 
the translation of Philip of Tripoli; the De signis 
aquarum, ventorum et tempestatum on weather signs, 
was translated in the 13th century by Bartholomew 
of Messina; the third work by the pseudo- Aristotle 
is De mineralibus on gems; the fourth Alexandri 
Macedonis ad Aristotelem de mirabilibus Indie is a 
fictitious letter by Alexander the Great to his teacher 
Aristotle, describing the wonders of India and the East. 
Three other similar 'Indian tractates' are known, all 
of them connected with the romance of Alexander 
the Great at various points in history. All four of 
them were accepted during the later Middle Ages as 
reliable literary portraits of the Indians, especially 
of the Brahmans. They originated in the European 
culture, and became sources for later tellers and writers 
of fables. The three remaining treatises in the present 
work consist of a work by Alexander of Aphrodisias on 
the intellect, another by Averroes on the beauty of the 
soul, and a work by Achillini himself on universais. 

The tract, "De Mineralibus" , is based upon a 
manuscript translation made at the end of the 12th 
century by Alfred the Englishman [see note below] of 
Avicenna's work on minerals. 

The origin of the Secret o f Secrets is veiled in 
obscurity. All known versions go back to an Arabic 
original, Kitab Sirr al-'asr, r, of which the earliest extant 
fragment can be dated A.D. 941. The work itself claims, 
in the Proem, to have been translated from Greek into 
Syriac and from Syriac into Arabic by Yahya ibn-al- 



Bitriq, a well-known ninth-century translator active in 
the period when the largest number of works was being 
translated from Greek into Arabic. While it is doubtful, 
though not impossible, that there was a Greek original, 
it is clear that the extant versions contain a good deal 
of Greek material, including a certain amount which 
derives from genuine Aristotelian doctrine. It also, 
however, contains much which certainly is traceable to 
Middle Eastern Islamic sources. 

In structure the work takes the form of an 
extended letter from Aristotle to Alexander the Great, 
which was sent to the king while he was engaged in 
conquering Persia. It is thus parallel to a number of 
other extant letters, which purport to be epistolory 
exchanges between the two eminent figures, of which 
several exist in Greek. The Secret, as it has come down 
to us, evidently underwent a long period of gestation. 
It probably originated as a 'Mirror for Princes', a 
familiar medieval literary form in which a wise man 
(Aristotle) offers moral and political advice to an 
eminent political leader (Alexander). It thus contains 
much specific advice on how the king as handled the 
many requiremcents of his office. For example, it deals 
with how the king is to choose and manage his advisors, 
what diet he should follow, how he should dress, 
etc. The Secret, as it has come down to us contains 
much else besides. Probably through a long period of 
accretion it gradually became a sort of encyclopedic 
work comprising, in addition to its original moral and 
political component, much miscellaneous information 
on occult and pseudo-scientific subjects. Thus there are 
sections of astrology, physiognomy, alchemy, and magic, 
in addition to rather detailed medical sections. 

All known versions derive from one of two 
Arabic versions, which are extent in a total of about 
fifty manuscripts. One of the versions is divided 
into either seven or eight books and is known as 
the Short Form in Manzalaoui's classification, while 
the other is in ten books and is known as the 
Long Form. It was ultimately translated into many 
different languages including Hebrew, Turkish, Latin, 
Russian, Czech, Croatian, German, Icelandic, English, 
Castillian, Catalan, Portuguese, French, and Italian. In 
some of these languages there are several versions, and 
in English there are as many as nine, though not all 
of them are complete. The Latin versions undoubtedly 
had the greatest fortuna and were the basis for later 
translations into European vernacular languages. The 
Russian translation, however, is from a Hebrew version. 

There are two basic Latin versions, one made in 
the mid-twelfth century by John of Seville (Joannes 
Hispalensis) and extant in some hundred and fifty 
copies, the other made during the first half of 
the thirteenth century by Philippus Tripolitanus and 
surviving in more than three hundred and fifty 
manuscripts. These versions, both in their Latin form 
and in the many vernacular translations which came 
from them, were exceedingly widely read for more than 
four centuries in many different intellectual contexts. 
Among the major figures of the High Middle Ages who

Aristotle 



read the work carefully are Albert the Great and Roger 
Bacon, who wrote a Latin commentary on the Secret. 
Owing to its encyclopedic nature it was of interest to 
readers in many different fields ranging from political 
theory to alchemy, from physiognomy to popular moral 
philosophy. 

Though much work has been done previously on 
many aspects of the Secret, we have by no means 
reached the stage where one can confidently place 
the work with its myriad ramifications in its proper 
historical context. Because it was transmitted in so 
many diverse cultures and in so many different linguistic 
and structural forms, to understand fully its overall 
historical position is beyond the capabilities of any 
single scholar. There are many unsolved problems 
of all sorts, ranging from the work's sources to the 
precise relationship between the various versions in 
many different languages. 

Alessandro Achillini. (BORN: Bologna, Italy, 

20 October 1463; DIED: Bologna, Italy, 1512) Italian 
philosopher & classical scholar. Achillini studied philosophy 
and medicine at the university of Bologna, where he 
became a celebrated lecturer both in medicine and in 
philosophy. From 1506 to 1508, he also taught at Padua. 
For his commentaries and editorial work, he was styled the 
second Aristotle. His philosophical works were printed in 
one volume folio, at Venice, in 1508, and reprinted with 
considerable additions in 1545, 1551 and 1568. He was also 
distinguished as an anatomist. 

Alfred the Englishman. (BORN: ; DIED: ) 

English translator. Also called Alfred of Sareshel and Alfred 
Angilicus, was one of the English scholastics who was 
especially important as a translator of (originally) Greek 
works from Arabic to Latin. His renderings of Aristotle's 
works occurred during the late 12th century.

RARE. Edited by Franciscus Maria Storella [see note 
below], this is the best edited text of Aristotle's Secretum 
before modern scholarship. It is a rare edition, with 
only a handful of copies known to be extant. Moreover, 
there are two variants, one having a Naples and the other 
a Venetian imprint. The work is dedicated to Ettore 
Pignatelli, Duke of Monteleone, and contains a detailed 
preface, and annotations to the text. 

The most significant improvement of the work is that 
Storella attempted in some measure to create a complete 
and critical text. He incorporated the information found 
in the Achillini edition of 1501 (reprinted 1516, 1520, and 
1528). He also speaks explicitly of the abbreviated edition 
published by Franciscus Taegius at Pavia in 1516. Storella 
also claims to have used several manuscripts in preparing 
the text. However, Schmitt (1982) says: "On the whole 
Storella's efforts to improve the text seem to have been 
somewhat misguided and not really based on any overall 
understanding of how to go about it. Nevertheless, he made 
an attempt, and the text he printed was more complete 
than previous ones." 

Franciscus Maria Storella. (BORN: Alessano, near Lecce, 
Italy, cl525; DIED: Naples, Italy, 1575) Italian classical 
scholar. Storella took a degree at Padua in 1549 and 
later taught at the universities of Salerno and Naples. 
He published a number of philosophical works, usually 
commentaries on ancient authorities.

introduction to rocks and minerals. It describes 
the basic properties of rocks and minerals. In 

conjunction with this work, a "Complete Student 
Mineral Collection" could also be obtained from the 
author.

VERY SCARCE. A popular and many times 
reprinted systematic Italian mineralogy. The author 
provides in the first half of the book sections which 
provide an overview of the science, definitions of 
terminology, descriptions of the crystal systems and 
crystal morphology, physical and chemical properties 
of minerals and the reasons why minerals are organized 
into the chemical-crystal systematic classification. The 
last half of the book is devoted to a descriptive 
mineralogy providing the standard information. An 
overall index finishes the text of the work. At the end 
are 40 chromolithographie plates showing a multitude 
of mineral specimens. These depictions are somewhat 
crude, but none the less they attempt to be faithful 
renderings of the specific species.

Avicenna (Arabic: Abu 'All al-Husain ibn 'Abdallah 
ibn Sïna) is the most famous scientist of Islam and one of 
the most famous of all races, places and times. He authored 
a great number of treatises in prose and verse, most of them 
in Arabic and a few in Persian. His philosophy roughly 
follows that of the Aristotelian tradition as modified by 
Muslim theology. His Qãniín fî-1-tibb (Canon of Medicine) 
is an immense encyclopedia of medicine, condensing the 
whole of ancient and Muslim knowledge, which had wide 
influence during the Middle Ages.

the European name given to JÃBIR IBN Hayyan was 
allegedly an 8th-century Arab alchemist whose name is 
attached to hundreds of writings ranging from the 9th to 
13th centuries. Although he did not author all of these 
works and in fact may not even have actually lived, the 
books authored in his name were the most advanced and 
influential alchemical texts of Islam. Many works later 
attributed to him, including the Summa Perfectionis, 
most probably were written by a later alchemist who 
wrote under Geber's reputation. This work that may 
be only translations of other Arabic texts became 
incorporated into Jãbirs corpus, the influence of which 
became the greatest of any alchemical writings in the

SCARCE. The "De mineralibus," appended, in 
medieval Arabic-Latin versions, to the fourth book 
of the Meteorológica of Aristotle. It is "partly a 
direct translation and partly a résumé" of passages in 
Avicenna's Kitâb al-shifâ' (Book of the remedy), made 
by Alfred of Sareshel. — Introduction. 

The Avicenna contains a Latin Text, the Arabic 
Text, and an English translation, with considerable 
critical and introductory material. The text claims 
to be a book of Aristotle's "Physics," and on the 
surface it describes the formation of minerals and 
mountains, though the Arabic title, translated "The 
Book of the Remedy" points to certain secrets which 
must be embedded within. 

From a scientific point of view, Avicenna's 
opinions on the formation of stone, rocks, and 
mountains are remarkably interesting in that they show 
an astonishing insight into the geological process. He 
is clear and concise in his remarks on the nature of 
minerals and in particular is ruthless in his criticism of 
the alchemists and their attempt to transmute the base 
metals into gold.

Avicenna's Mineralibus 

The text of Avicenna's Mineralibus was not generally 
recognized as his during the Middle Ages but was 
included instead with the writings of Aristotle. Therefore, 
when mechanical printing was introduced, the text was 
included with the Meteorológica and Secretum Secretorum 
of Aristotle.

Babington 



In 1797, Babington began practicing medicine in 
London. He also was associated with Guy's Hospital, 
where he lectured on chemistry. Babington was a founding 
member of the Geological Society of London, of which he 
was also elected president in 1822. He was elected a Fellow 
of the Royal Society of London in 1805, as well as a Fellow 
of the Royal College of Physicians, and founder of the 
Hunterian Society in London. The mineral "Babingtonite" 
was named after him by A. Levy in 1824.

earths, metals and inflammables. An appendix classifies

VERY SCARCE. In the advertisement, Babington 
writes that he wishes this work to be considered 
a continuation of his A Systematic Arrangement of 
Minerals (1st ed., London, 1795). Like its predecessor, 
A New System of Mineralogy also uses the mineral 
collection Babington had purchased from the Earl of 
Bute on which to form the basis for creating the 
classification. However, where the earlier publication 
contained a synopsis of the classification scheme 
with essentially no mineral descriptions, this work 
is essentially the expanded descriptive catalog of the 
specimens arranged according to the system. 

The work is dedictated to the mineral collector 
Sir John St Aubyn [see note below]. Babingtion's 
obligation to Baron Ignaz Edler von Born is expressed 
on the title page. In crystallization he was influenced 
by Jean-Baptiste Louis Rome de l'Isle, while most 
of his descriptions correspond with those of Johann 
Friedrich Wilhelm Widenmann and Ludwig August 
Emmerling. Richard Kirwan was relied upon for the 
chemical properties and analysis. Babington defines his 
classes, orders, genera, and species upon the chemical 
qualities, and his varieties on the external characters of 
minerals. 

Sir John St Aubyn. (BORN: 1758; DIED: 1839) English 
politician. St Aubyn was educated at Westminster. He 
became sheriff of Cornwall in 1781, and a member of 
parliment from Truro, Cornwall in 1784. He was a Fellow of 
the Linnean and Royal Societies. His portrait was painted 
by Reynolds. St Aubyn purchased William Babington 's 
mineral collection for the considerable sum of £3,000. 
After several subsequent acquisitions, including in 1799 
Richard Greene's collection for Л00, St Aubyn donated 
the bulk of the collection to the Civil and Military Library 
at Davenport in 1834. Through the years it was moved 
several times, eventually ending up in Plymouth in 1924. 
There the remains of it are today in the Plymouth City 
Museum.

VERY RARE. The authorship of this catalog 
is attributed to Babington based upon a manuscript 
notation in the British Library copy. It describes a rich 
and varied collection of minerals, "selected with much 
Science and Expence from several valuable Collections, 
especially the well-known Butean ... the Museum 
Geversianum and of Professor Gaubius in Holland ... 
together with an interesting Series of Specimens from 
Mont Blanc, collected by Mr. Voigt" (Address). The 
catalog follows the classification scheme outlined in 
Babinton's previously published works [see previous 
entries] . 

The whole collection is described as being 
contained in three Mahogany cabinets, each 6 feet tall, 
2.5 feet wide and 1.5 feet deep, with 42 drawers in each 
cabinet. Specimens are fully cataloged including the 



country locality. The collection was truly world wide in 
its nature, and the result of great enthusiasurn on the 
part of the collector. Unfortunately, no reference has 
been found to specifically identify who this individual 
was. However, based upon the shear size and variety 
of the collection, the compiler suspects it to be the 
product of the famous gentleman mineralogist William 
Withering [see note below]. 

William Withering. (BORN: Wellington, Shropshire, 
England, 28 March 1741; DIED: Larches near Birmingham, 
England, 6 October 1799) English physician. Withering 
graduated with his M.D. from the University of Edinburgh 
in 1766. In 1774, he then opened a medical practice in 
Birmingham. He was the first to describe native barium 
carbonate, later named after him as the mineral species, 
witherite. Withering is best known as a botanist, and his 
work on the foxglove is a classic. He was elected a Fellow 
of the Royal Society of London in 1784. He had collections 
of both minerals and plants.

BAIER, Johann Jakob. (BORN: Jena, Germany, 14 
June 1677; DlED: Altorf, Switzerland, 14 July 1735) 
German physician & naturalist. 

Baier was the father of FERDINAND JACOB BAIER.. 
He was educated at Jena and Halle, becoming professor 
of medicine at the University of Altorf, Switzerland in 
1704. In 1731, he was appointed personal physician to 
the Emperor. Baier was elected a member and ultimately 
president of the Leopoldina Academy [Academy of Natural 
Scientists].

RARE. A classic work on the fossils and some min- 
erals found in the region surrounding the city of Nürn- 
berg in Germany. Baier's Oryctographia Norica was a 
new, systematic attempt to organize the natural min- 
eral objects he found around his home city into a co- 
herent classification. Baier did not believe in sweeping 
theoretical pronouncments, instead the specimens are 
fully described with many of the most interesting fossils 
depicted on the finely engraved plates. By this means 
he laid the foundation for the investigation of Jurassic 
fauna and of scientific paleontology in general and help 
disprove the notion that fossils were simple jests of na- 
ture. He clearly indicates that these fossils were created 
in the single act of the Deluge, which he considered the 
only great change since the Creation. The foundation 
Baier thus created, helped prepare the path for subse- 
quent researchers to see the world differently and look 
past the myth and create through thorough observation 
the science of geology. 

The frontispiece depicts a beach with putti pre- 
senting Cybele with baskets of ammonites, fossil echin- 
oderms, belemnites, etc., while Neptune rides on a shell 
on the sea surrounded by naiads bearing baskets of 
shells; i.e. the affinities of the living and fossil forms. 
This and the six plates (which figure some 300 fossils) 
are the work of J.G. Puschner. 

Baier clearly states in his forword that supplemen- 
tal volumes will appear to expand on the Oryctographia 
Norica, but time considerations in his life only allowed 
him to publish the rare 1730 supplement. However, at 
the time of his death, he had left material enough to al- 
low his son Ferdinand to issue an additional supplemen- 
tal volume in 1757. The publication of this, probably 
caused enough interest that the following year, 1758, 
Ferdinand issued what should be considered a rare sec- 
ond edition of the Oryctographia Norica, with a rework- 
ing of his father's original text, and a small number of 
plates. 

German, 1958: An excellent modern German 

translation with extensive commentary of Oryktographia 
Norica and its 1730 supplemental volume appears 
in Erlanger Geologische Abhandlungen, 29 (1958), [1]- 
133 p. Besides a good introduction, there is included 
biographical information, much data of a historical 
interest, reproductions of the title pages, text figures and 
reproductions of the plates. 

Ferdinand Jakob Baier. (BORN: Altorf, Germany, 13 
February 1707; DIED: Ansbach, Germany, 23 October 1788) 
German physician. Baier was the son of JOHANN JACOB 
BAIER. He had a medical practice in Nurnburg, Germany. 
He was elected a member, later becoming president, of the 
Leopoldina Academy [Academy of Natural Scientists].

English geologist. 

Bakewell made extensive mineralogical and geological 
surveys in England and Ireland, after which he lectured and 
exhibited sections of rock formations and the beginnings of 
a geological map of Britain. From 1820 to '22, Bakewell 
traveled throughout France and Switzerland, extending his 
geological surveys. His published account of these travels, 
published in 1823, was a popular work with the public. He 
invented a safety furnace for preventing explosions in coal 
mines.

SCARCE. In the preface, Bakewell gives an 
overview of the progress of mineralogy in Europe, 
emphasising the contributions of René Just Haüy and 
Abraham Gottlob Werner. He indicates this work 
should be used by students of mineralogy in England 
to help acquaint them with the science. The text is 
arranged into five books. Book I (pp. 1-198) covers 
preliminary observations and introductory theory in 10 
chapters. Included is an overview of the classification 
system of Haüy that is used within the descriptive 
portion with some modification. Book II (pp. 199-465) 
reviews the essential characters of the earthy minerals, 
including on pages 202-219 a table of minerals arranged 
by specific gravity and on pages 220-231 a similar table 
arranged according to their hardness. An appendix to 
Book II takes up pages 466-498. Book III (pp. 499- 
616) concerns the metallic species. Book IV (pp. 617- 
634) describes the combustible minerals, and Book V 
(pp. 635-642) arranges the saline minerals. The five 
folding plates, numbered I-V are unsigned and mostly 
show crystal drawings.

Barba 



BARBA, Alvaro Alonso. (BORN: Lepe, Huelva, Spain, 
15 November 1569; DlED: Potosí, Peru [now Bolivia], 
1662) Spanish theologian. 

Barba entered church and became priest at Tarabuco, 
South America, cl609. He resided at Lepas, Peru, 
1617. Then he became pastor of St. Bernards at Potosi, 
Columbia, a rich mining district. While there, Barba began 
studying the minerals, mining, and refining processes of 
the mines in the district. The whole of his knowledge he 
recorded in his Arte De Los Metales (1st ed., Madrid, 1640), 
which was kept as secret as possible by the Spaniards. He 
was the probable discoverer of process for extraction of 
gold, silver and copper by boiling ore with salt solution 
and mercury in copper vessel, cl607.

VERY RARE. The first significant book in Spanish 
on metals, minerals and mines of the New World. As a 
handbook on the mineral riches of the new territories, 
this title was banned by the Inquisition and severely 
limited in this its first printing, and consequently is 
a rarely encountered title. This book is complete 
with descriptions, practical directions, explanations, 
and illustrations of equipment for smelting gold, silver 
and copper. It was the first significant treatise on 
metals and minerals written in Spanish, and one of 
the few seventeenth century work's that was largely 
orginal. Barba advocated the laboratory control of the 
entire plant process, as well as computation of all costs 
associated with metal recovery. He describes in-depth 
his newly invented process of treating silver and gold 
ores with a mercury amalgamation in a copper vessel, 
to enhance metal recovery. It describes the fabulous 
wealth of the Spanish possessions in the New World, 
and as such the Spanish government attempted to keep 
Barba's book and methods secret. However, in 1669, 
the English ambassador, the Earl of Sandwich got a 
hold of a copy and published an English translation in 
1670 that resulted in a large number of editions and 
translations. This work describes the amalgamation 
process used in Potosi, giving detailed accounts of 
ores and minerals of South America. Also covers the 
generation and origin of metals. The illustation shows 
a balance in a glass case, the first such illustration. 

The editions of 1630 and 1639, recorded by many 
bibliographies, are probably due to printer's error for 
1640, which is the first appearance of Barba's work.

Rare. Barba's scarce original text and illustrations 
on mining and metallurgy were reprinted here for the first 
time, almost ninety years after their first appearance. The 
publisher Francisco Assensio, in his dedicatory remarks, 
proclaims his purpose in issuing Barba's text is to assure 
the "perpetuity of its fame." Appended to Barba's work at 
page 192 is the second printing of another earlier work on 
the ancient mines of the Spanish empire, Alonso Carrillo 
y Laso 's Tratado de las Antiguas Minas de España (1st ed., 
Madrd, 1624).

Alonso Carrillo Lasso. (BORN: cl582; DIED: Córdoba,

than he was born the son of an illustrious lawyer and writer, 
Don Fernando.

Rare. Translated by the Right Honorable 

Edward, Earl of Sandwich from Arie De Los Metales 
(1st ed., Madrid, 1640). As ambassador to Spain, 
the Earl managed to obtain a copy of the supressed 
Spanish original of Barba's important text on mining 
and metallurgy in the New World. He translated the 
first two of the five books, and had them published 
as two separate volumes. Unfortunately, the translator 
lacked technical knowledge, and the text is considerably 
flawed. None the less, it was this translation that was 
reprinted several times and used as the foundation for 
the German and French editions.

SCARCE. English translation by Ross E. Douglass and

1729). "Our aim has been to reproduce faithfully the 
phraseology of the author" (Preface). This is the only 
English translation of Barba's complete text. The 1670 
translation was only of the first two books and is of 
little value since the Earl of Sandwich lacked technical 
knowledge. 

Mountagu Edward, First Earl of Sandwich. (BORN: 1625; 
DIED: 1672) English nobility & ambassador. Sandwich was 
an admiral and general at sea, who distinguished himself at 
Naseby and the storming of Bristol in 1645. He resigned his 
command in 1659, but was reappointed in 1660. He sailed 
to Holland to convey Charles II to England. He was created 
Earl of Sandwich in 1660. He negotiated the marriage 
between Charles II and Catherine of Braganza, receiving 
the surrender of Tangier and conducting the queen to 
England in 1661. In 1666, he was appointed ambassador 
extraordinary to Madrid, where he successfully concluded a 
treaty with Spain. He was second in command of the fleet 
at the outbreak of war with the Dutch in 1672, and was 
subsequently blown up with his ship, when the fleet was 
surprised at Solebay. His body is buried at Westminster 
Abbey.

SCARCE. This is a collection of three separate 
treatises concerned with mineralogy, mining and met- 
allurgy that had each previously been separately pub- 
lished. The first edition of this collected edition was 
published in 1738. In 1739 and again in 1740, to meet 
public demand, the work was again reissued. Although 
not indicated in the text, chapters 1-60 are a translation 
of the first two parts of Barbas treatise and chapters 61- 
72 are a reprint of Plattes work. 

[A]. Albaro Alonso Barba. In 1640, the Arte De 
Los Metales was published at Madrid in a very small 
edition. It is the first description of the silver mines, 
minerals and metallurgical processes of the New World, 
primarily in the area of Bolivia and Peru. Contained 
therein are descriptions of how the rich veins formed 
and their look, taste and smell. Various properties of 
metals and stones are discussed together with observa- 
tions on how other veins might be located, most partic- 
ularly gold and silver. Copper, iron, lead, tin, mercury 
are also described. The work then goes into the vari- 
ous methods for the refining of the ores to pure metals, 
including the importance of sorting, grinding, roasting, 
and fluxes used when heating. The most important ob- 
servation is Barbas announcement of a process for the 
extraction of gold, silver and copper by boiling ore with 
salt solution and mercury in a copper vessel. This was 
a discovery that allowed the mines of the New World 
to operate with greater efficiency in filling the Spanish 
treasury. 

The Spanish government considered any publica- 
tion dealing with the New World to be a state secret — 
Barbas work especially so, since it dealt with the min- 
eral wealth. Consequently, to keep the secret better, 
the first edition of 1640 was printed in a very small edi- 
tion. In addition, the penalty for the unauthorized sale 
of a copy of Barbas 1640 work was a certain and painful 
death by the Inquisition. However, this did not stop the 
Earl of Sandwich from smuggling a copy out of Spain, 
and publishing the first English edition in 1670. Proba- 
bly since the English Crown did not want to provoke a 
diplomatic incident with Spain, this English edition was 
also published in a small number. It was not until the 
translation of Barbas work appeared in these collected 
editions, that it became available to a large readership.

[В]. Gabriel Plattes. Plattes work, A Discovery of 
all Sorts of Mines from Gold to Coal was originally pub- 
lished as a very rare separate book in London in 1639 
under the title, A Discovery of Subterraneall Treasure, 
viz. Of all manner of Mines and Mineralls, from Gold 
to the Coale. However, it is far more common to find 
it bound within an edition of these collected works. It 
is an interesting treatise on mineralogy, and considered 
the first useful text in English on metallurgical matters. 
The short tract contains a wealth of factual information 
illustrated by the authors own experiments. The work 
also is interesting for its account of the gold and silver 
mines in New England, Virginia and the Bermudas, as 
well as other parts of America. Besides dealing in great 
detail with assaying, the author provides a recipe by 
which he claims to have produced pure gold, but at a 
cost greater than the value obtained. One chapter is 
devoted to all kinds of vegetable dyes, which Plattes 
preferred to mineral dyes. 

[C]. Thomas Houghton. First published in 1681 
under the title, fiara Avis in Terris: or, the Com-pleat 
Miner, this work was reprinted as an independent entity 
several times before it appeared in this collected edition. 
This book is important as the first published statement 
on English mining laws and customs as used by the lead 
miners in Derbyshire. Houghton claims of the second 
book, "the art of dialling and levelling grooves, a thing 
greatly desired by all miners, being a subject never be- 
fore written by any." A dictionary clarifying mining 
terms is appended. 

Reissue, 1739: A collection of scarce and valuable 
Treatises upon Metals, Mines, and Minerals ... Part I. and 
II. Containing the Art of Metals. Written originally in Spanish. 
By ... Albaro Alonso Barba, Director of Mines at Potasi, in 
the Spanish West-Indies. Translated by the Earl of Sandwich, 
in the year 1669. Part III. Containing that Invaluable Piece of 
Mr. G. Plattes, viz. A Discovery of all Sorts of Mines from 
Gold to Coal. Part IV. Houghton's Compleat Miner. London, 
1739. 8°: xii, 215, [4], [66] p., illust., one plate. 

Gabriel Plattes. (BORN: 1600?; DIED: London, 

England, 1655?) English scientist. Practically nothing is 
known of Plattes. He is thought to be of Dutch extraction, 
and he was an author on agricultural subjects. His notable 
work on the subject is A Discovery of Infinite Treasure 
(London, 1639). He was an original thinker and thorough 
scientist, who insisted on practical experimentation to 
confirm hypothesis. Though described as the "original 
genius in husbandry," he was neglected in his lifetime. 
Despite his poverty, he refused to beg for money and 
eventually died of starvation. His body was found in the 
street. 

Thomas Houghton. (BORN: ; DIED: ) English 

author. An English writer on mining and legal matters.

RARE. Translation from Barba's text contained 
in A Collection of Scarce and Valuable Treatises 
upon Metals, Mines, and Minerals (London, 1740). 
This is the earliest work on mining and minerals 
published at a colonial American press, and as such 
has interest as the earliest known book on mining, 
metallurgy and mineralogy published in the land that 
would become The United States of America. In this 
instance, the book was published at the famous press 
of Ephrata, Pennsylvania, known as the Brudershaft, 
which operated in 1763, and published only two works. 
The text consists of two parts. The second, has its own 
title page: "Das zweyte Buch, von den Metallen, darin 
gelehrt wird der gemeine Weg, wie man das Silber durch 
quecksilber reiniget: dazu etliche neue Regeln gefügt sid 
darin gedachte Arbeit mehr erläutert wird."

set out the names and properties of hundreds of mineral 
species arranged in a classification. An index at the end 
allows easy lookup of individual species.

names afterwards applied by Linné. The work is rare."

VERY SCARCE. The author set of for Guiana at the 
end of the year 1721 and left in 1724. He explored the 
rivers Kourou and the Orapus while studying flora and 
fauna and the customs of the inhabitants. The work 
also deals with sugar trade and with the Negro slaves 
and the various native tribes and includes details on the 
commerce and trade. This is the first important work 
on Guiana and formed the major source of the 18th 
century knowledge. It is distinct from the author's Essai 
sur l'Histoire Naturelle de la. France Equioxials and is 
not another edition thereof. Although interesting in 
many subjects, this appears to have little of interest to 
mineralogy.

RARE. Barreré made a special study of the origin 
and formation of figured stones (i.e., fossils) that he 
had discovered in the Pyrenees. This work contains his 
insightful observations. For example Barreré supposes 
that the reason fossil shells are found on the tops of the 
highest Alps and the rocks of the Pyrenees is because 
the land had formerly formed a basin in a great ancient 
sea. The two engraved plates show good depictions of 
figured stones and fossils.

VERY RARE. This is Bartholin's work treatise 
on the shape of ice crystals which speculates on the 
internal structure of snow crystals. This work has 
sometimes incorrectly been called the earliest treatise 
on crystallography, because it precedes Boyles work 
on gems by eleven years. However, Kepler's Sterna 
Seu De Niue Sexángula. (Francofurti, 1611), which also 
discusses the shape of snow crystals, is much earlier still.

Rare. This is the first work after Avicenna to 
discuss refrigeration anesthesia. The Neapolitan surgeon 
Marco Aureliano Severino [1580-1656] reintroduced the 
use of snow and ice as an anesthetic agent in the 
seventeenth century, and his pupil Bartholin described 
Severinos methods in this work. Refrigeration anesthesia 
was employed successfully in amputations as late as the 
nineteenth century. Added to Bartholin's work is a treatise 
on the shape of ice crystals written by his younger brother 
Erasmus. Also included in this work is a bibliography of 
Thomas Bartholin's published works.

same time. The work essentially describes a wide range 
of experiments performed on Iceland spar, a variety 
of the mineral calcite. Beginning with descriptions of 
the rhornbohedral shape of the crystals, and noting 
that any pieces broken from a specimen are also 
rhornbohedral, the author continues his experiments 
to define the physical characteristics of the specimens. 
Included among these are observations of its relative 
hardness, of its tendency toward cleavage, of its ease of 
decomposition when treated with acid, and of its ability 
to hold an electric charge when rubbed or heated. The 
remainder of the book describes Bartholin's discovery of 
double refraction, i.e. the physical property of Iceland 
spar (and other substances) to split light rays such 
that two images are seen when an object is viewed 
through the crystal. The author questions the character 
of double refraction, including its behavior when the 
crystal is turned, its angle of refraction and its existence 
in other substances. Bartholin then postulates a theory 
to explain the phenomena, which is based on pairs of 
pores, existing along cleavage planes inside the crystal, 
reflecting "corpuscula" of light at different angles. 

Abridged English transi., 1671: Henry Oldenburg [see 
note below], secretary of the Royal Society of London, set 
about writing a translation of Bartholin's work. It was 
published as: "An Accompt of sundry Experiments made

Erasmus Bartholin, upon a crystal like Body sent to him

Henry Oldenburg. (BORN: Bremen, Germay, cl618; 
DIED: Charlton, near Greenwich, England, 5 September 
1677) English scientist. Oldenburg graduated from the 
University of Utrecht in 1641, and he matriculated at 
Oxford from 1657 to 1658. He taught in the Paedogogium 
of Bremen. Later he became a professor in the newly 
established University of Dorpat, in what is now Estonia. 
Although it is known that Oldenburg matriculated in the 
University of Utrecht in 1641, nothing is known with 
assurance about what he did during the following twelve 
years, but there is presumptive evidence that he was a 
tutor during these years. In 1656 he became tutor to 
Boyle's nephew, Richard Jones, later the third Viscount 
Ranelagh and first Earl of Ranelagh. Oldenburg made a 
profession of scientific administration. He founded a system 
of records in the Royal Society that is still followed, created 
an international correspondence of scientists, and founded 
the first scientific journal, The Philosophical Transactions of 
the Royal Society of London. Oldenburg began publishing in 
1665 the Philosophical Transactions, which were his personal 
enterprise, to make money, although he never made as 
much as he hoped. He also translated papers for the 
London Gazette. He also translated and published works 
from abroad. He translated at least two of Boyle's works 
into Latin, and he appears to have functioned effectively as 
the publisher for a number of Boyle's works. 

Karl Mieleitner. (BORN: Munich, Bavaria, Germany, 
31 March 1890; DIED: Munich, Bavaria, Germany, 15 March 
1923) German mineralogist & historian of mineralogy. Born 
the son of a shoemaker, Mieleitner became in 1913 assistant 
for the Bavarian state mineral collection at the University 
of Munich, where in 1919 he succeeded F. Grünlung 
as 'Konservator.' He was an enthusiastic and energetic 
worker, producing several papers within a few years. He 
developed an interest in the history of mineralogy and 
published before his early death German translations, with 
authoritative notes, of the old works of Steno, Bartholin 
and Cappeller.

BARTHOLOMAEUS ANGLICUS. (Born: England, 

cll90; DIED: Magdeburg, Germany?, cl250) English 
theologian & encyclopedia. 

An Englishman by birth he had been professor of 
theology at the University of Paris, when, in 1224 or 
1225, he entered the newly established Order of St. Francis 
in company with his countryman and fellow-professor of 
theology, Hayrno of Faversham, and two other professors 
of the same faculty. He continued his lectures at the 
claustral school until 1231, when he was sent to Magdeburg 
in Germany. There he took on the role as the new lector. 
Nothing definitive is known about the life of Bartholomäus 
after he left Paris in 1231. His life at Magdeburg was 
probably spent in teaching and reorganizing the Franciscan 
school there. The date of Bartholomäus' death is unknown, 
but it is thought that he died about the middle of the 
thirteenth century. He was formerly identified with a later 
Franciscan and Englishman, Bartholomaeus of Glanvilla, 
or Glaunvilla, who died about 1360, and to him the 
famous work De Proprietatibus Rerum was ascribed. Recent 
research places beyond doubt that the two men must 
be distinguished and that the authorship of the work in 
question must be attributed to the Magdeburg professor of 
1231, and that the Glanville descriptor should be removed 
from his name.

De Pr.oprietatibus Rerum, 1472 

capittulorurn bertholomei | anglici de jprietatibus reru" ; 
248, Blank. 

Editio PRINCEPS. Extremely rare. While older 
authorities give precedence to the Basel edition, printed 
by Ruppel, it can now be stated that this is the 
first printed edition of Bartholomaeus, since the early 
manuscript dates found in two Ruppel books have been 
shown to be forgeries, and as it now seems that Ruppel 
did not begin printing in Basel until after 1472. 

Besides being the first printed edition, this 
Cologne issue is important for its connection to William 
Caxton [see note below]. The Cologne city ledgers 
record that Caxton arrived in the city in July 1471 
(Birch) to learn the process and art of printing. In 1471, 
Johann Veldener [see note below] chose Bartholomaeus' 
encyclopedia as his first project, and accepted Caxton 
as his pupil. However, indications are that Caxton's 
role was considerably more important as a financier. 
"The necessary capital is more likely to have come 
from Caxton than Veldener who had only recently 
achieved independence by the establishment of his own 
printing office and who therefore would have been close 
to the limits of his financial capacity. Under these 
circumstances, would he have dared on his own to 
venture the publication of so large a book? There 
is the further possibility that Veldener got together 
the necessary funds by charging the Englishman for 
instruction in the art of printing" (Corsten). Thus this 
edition is the earliest example of Caxton's printing. 

De Proprietatibus Rerum was the most popular 



encyclopaedia of the thirteenth century, which has 
been called the age of encyclopaedias. The intellectual 
renaissance of the preceding century had stimulated a 
desire for learning. It was impossible for a large number 
of students to acquire first hand knowledge of every 
science and the universities could not accommodate all 
those who wished to learn. Therefore some means of 
spreading knowledge was required. The problem was 
solved by writing encyclopaedias that collected together 
the opinions of the best known authorities. These 
works varied in comprehensiveness and arrangement, 
but the educational aim was never forgotten. These 
books were to be used as textbooks and works of 
references for the preachers and scholars that did not 
have access to a library and who could not afford to 
collect one of their own. In fact, Bartholomaeus wrote 
his compilation primarily for the student of theology 
and for the preacher as he explains in the Prohemium. 

De Proprietatibus Rerurn was written as an 
ordered encyclopedia of all the sciences of the time: 
theology, philosophy, medicine, astronomy, chronology, 
zoology, botany, geography, mineralogy, are the 
subjects treated in this work. It is the first important 
encyclopedia written in the Middle Ages and the first 
in which the works of Greek, Arabian, and Jewish 
naturalists and medical writers, which had recently 
been translated from Arabic into Latin, were included 
as contributions. Aristotle, Hippocrates, Theophrastus, 
the Jew Isaac Medicus, the Arabian Haly, and other 
researchers are frequently quoted. Even in the age 
before mechanical printing, the De Proprietatibus 
Rerum enjoyed widespread popularity as is shown by 
the many dozens of manuscripts still in existence. In 
manuscript form, it was translated into five European 
languages: French, English, Spanish, Provençal and 
Italian. Thus, it had a widespread appeal to the general 
population and had a great influence on the cirriculum 
of the medieval university. 

Bartholomaeus based the structure of his book on 
the Etymologiarum Libri Duo written by the learned 
theologian, ISIDORE OF SEVILLE between 62.3 a.D. and 
633 A.D. The 20 sections found in Isidore are reduced 
and rearranged to 19 by Bartholomaeus; however, he 
follows his own method in compiling the observations 
and adheres to the accepted medieval form of quoting 
ancient authorities. Sprinkled throughout the text are 
his own observations that give the De Proprietatibus 
Rerum a unique flavor. 

The 19 books of Bartholomaeus' text are ordered 
thusly: (1) God, (2) Angels and Demons, (3) Of the 
Soul and Reason, (4) Of the Body's Essences, (5) The 
Human Body and Each of its Parts, (6) The Ages of 
Man (Family Life and Household Economy), (7) Of 
Infirmities and Medicines, (8) Of the World and the 
Heavenly Bodies (Cosmology and Astrology), (9) Of 
Time and the Divisions of Time, (10) The Material, 
Form, and Properties of the Elements, (11) Of the 
Air and its Natural Phenomena (Meteorology), (12) Of 
Winged Creatures, (13) Of Waters and Fish, (14) Of the 
Earth and its Features, (15) Of its Provinces (Political

and Economic Geography), (16) Mineralogy, including 
precious and semiprecious stones, sand, coal, Bezoar 
stones, etc., (17) On Plants and Trees (A Herbal), (18) 
Of Animals, and (19) On Non-Essential Characteristics 
(i.e., Colors, Tastes, Odors, etc.), and a Miscellany 
on Food, Drink, Eggs, Weights and Measures, Music, 
and Musical Instruments. This ordering which can 
be classified into four distinct sections suggests that 
Bartholomaeus carefully planned his work. 

The order of the De Proprietatibus Rerum is 
founded on a medieval logic of progression. The first 
three books form the first section with God, as the 
supreme creator and the prime moving force, with 
angles, demons and the soul all occupying the first 
position. Next comes the second part (books 4-7) 
devoted to the important factors that affect the life of 
man. The third section (books 8-18) treats the universe 
and may be subdivided into two parts. The first (books 
8-13) has as its subject the world in general while the 
second (books 14-18) describes the earth in particular, 
including in book 16 metals, stones and minerals. The 
fourth section is composed solely of the nineteenth book 
in which everything not previously discussed finds a 
place including colors, odors, liquids, weighs, measures, 
music, etc. Since this work was intended as a reference 
to show mans place in God's universe, the text provides 
examples of good and bad conduct, and illustrates for 
him the principals of Christianity. 

Since the greatest importance was assigned 
to theological matters, it became fairly simple 
for Bartholomaeus to ignore the accuracy of his 
descriptions. Hence we find him with no clear idea 
of the locations of Egypt or India, the latter being a 
vague term which medieval men used to refer to the vast 
territory that stretched beyond Arabia. Bartholomaeus' 
own eyes would have told him that bees do not carry 
small stones to weight them against the wind, and that 
crabs do not employ stones to keep oyster shells propped 
open while they dine on the contents. It was as obvious 
then as now that the legs of a fox are not shorter on the 
right side, and that swiftly moving currents are not the 
cause of oars becoming disjointed in appearance when 
dipped under water. Yet we cannot blame hirn for being 
a man of his time. 

William Caxton. (BORN: Tenderton, Kent, England, 
cl416; DIED: London, England, 1491) English printer, 
translator & linguist. Caxton was the first to print books in 
English. He served an apprenticeship as a mercer and about 
1441 he relocated to Bruges and established a successful 
business there. In 1462 Caxton was selected governor of 
the Merchants Adventurers in the Low Countries, serving 
as a diplomat for the English king. He learned the art 
of printing in Cologne between 1471-2, and at Brugge in 
1475 he and Colard Mansion printed The Recuyell of the 
Historyes of Troye, his own translation from the French, and 
the first book printed in English. In 1476 he returned to 
England, and established the first English print shop at 
Westminster in 1477. There he printed Dictes or Sayengis of 
the Philosophres, the first dated book printed in England. 
Caxton is known to have printed about 100 books, many 
dealing with themes of chivalry. He was the translator, 
from French, Latin, and Dutch, of about one third of the 
books that he printed, and for some he wrote original 
prologues, epilogues, and additions. His books are of 



superb craftsmanship and are carefully edited. One of 
the typefaces used by Caxton is the original Old English 
type. Wynkyn de Worde, his successor as a printer, was 
his assistant at Westminster. 

Johann Veldener. (BORN: ; DIED: cl487) Dutch 

printer. Native of the Diocese of Würzburg, Veldener set 
up his first press in the town of Louvain in 1473. In 1478, he 
moved to Ultrecht and reestablished his print shop there.

VERY RARE. Dutch translation probably commis- 
sioned and certainly printed by Jacob Bellaert [see note 
below]. This is the first Dutch edition of the famous ency- 
clopedia, and the first of all the editions to contain illus- 
trations. 

Indications are that this production was designed 
from the start to be a sumptuous publication. For setting 
the text Bellart used a beautiful, newly designed font in the 
Gothic style. Each of the eleven woodcut illustrations acts 
as a full-page frontispiece introducing the individual sec- 
tions of Bartholomaeus text. Some of these plates serve for 
two sections by rather ingeniously incorporating isolated 
motifs laid against a broad, unifying landscape. For ex- 
ample, stones and gems are scattered here and there along 
the banks of a stream on the plate that also introduces the 
description of plants. These illustrations are finely detailed 
depictions by the anonymous artist whose woodcuts in this 
and other of Bellaert's books has earned him the descriptor: 
"The Bellaert Master." The book was issued on Christmas 
Eve 1485 ("op Kerstavont, 1485") making this volume com- 
parable to the modern Christmas edition. Finally, it is the 
only book from the press of Bellaert that is signed in the 
colophon as being produced by his establishment. He was 
obviously and deservedly proud of this publication. 

The eleven woodcuts each measure approximately 
200 x 140 mm. and represent Solomon as judge, seated in 
the middle, before him the clerk of the court, to the left 
Belial as prosecutor and to the right Moses, Christ's coun- 
sel for the defense (llv); the creation of angels and fall 
of demons (18v); the creation of Eve and anatomical man 
(30v); the ages of man, a physician and a surgeon attending 
patients (105v); the earth and the spheres (161v); occupa- 
tions of the months (188v); birds (217v); fishes (233v): a 
landscape showing a river and towns (247v), trees, plants, 
stones and gems (287v) and animals and reptiles (368v). 
In all 32 different woodblocks were cut, and printed in con- 
tinually changing combinations. 

Jacob Bellaert. (BORN: Zierikzee, The Netherlands, 
cl450; DIED: ) Dutch printer. Bellaert was the 

first printer in Haarlem. His earliest book was published 
in Lijden in December 1483. An important part of the 
books he printed were the splendid woodcut illustrations. 
The only one of his works that is signed is his issue of 
Bartholomaeus Anglicus's Van de proprieteiten der dingen 
(1485). In 1486 several other titles can be traced to hirn as 
well. 

The fifteenth-century illustrators of books and 
woodcutters are veiled in still far greater anonymity than 
the printers at the time. Jacob Bellaert escaped from such 
anonymity by once including his name in a colophon. In art 
history he may now serve as the namegiver for the unknown 



illustrator: the Bellaert master. 

The illustration shows Solomon as judge, seated in 
the middle; before him the clerk of the court, to the left 
Belial as prosecutor and to the right Moses, Christ's counsel 
for the defence. Three woodblocks were used, one for 
the centre and two for the sidepieces. In all 32 different 
woodblocks were cut, and printed in continually changing 
combinations. For the illustrations in the Belial reprints of 
1512 and 1516 by the Antwerp printer Hendrik Eckert van 
Homberch, Bellaert's woodblocks, then 30 years old, were 
used again.

RARE. The illustrations "are very remarkable in 
style and widely divergent in treatment form those in the 
earlier Lyons and Paris editions. They make liberal use of 
solid black and deeply shaded background, and in many 
ways strongly suggest that they are derived from metal- 
engravings rather than woodcut originals." (Goldschmidt)
