IDDINGS, Joseph Paxson. (Born: Baltimore, 
Maryland, U.S.A., 21 January 1857; DIED: Montgomery 
County Hospital, Maryland, U.S.A., 8 September 1920) 
American petrologist & mineralogist. 

Iddings moved to Orange, New Jersey at age of 10. In 
1877, he graduated from the Sheffield Scientific School of 
Yale University, where he became interested in mineralogy 
and petrology. He traveled to Europe, becoming a student 
from 1879 to '80 of Harry Rosenbusch [1836-1914] at the 
University of Heidelberg. Upon returning to America 
in 1880, he went to work for U.S. Geological Survey. 
There he helped survey the Eureka district of Nevada 
and Yellowstone National Park. Iddings accepted an 
appointment as professor of petrology at the University 
of Chicago in 1895, where he remained until 1908. Then 
Iddings retired to a private life of scholarship.

SCARCE. The advance of petrology during the late 
nineteenth century is clear in Iddings textbook. Here 
the emphasis is on determining the mineral species that 
make up rock aggregates. The numerous illustrations 
show apparatus, diagrams and many excellent crystal 
drawings probably copied from Dana's Sixth Edition, 
which was also a Wiley publication.

IGELSTRÖM, Lars Johann. (BORN: Yngshyttan near 
Persberg, Värmland, Sweden, 10 February 1822; DIED: 
Gräs, Sunnemo parish, Värmland, Sweden, 15 May 
1897) Swedish geologist & mineralogist. 

Studied Bergsskolan Filipstad 1841-42 with special 
vitsord in mineralogy and chemistry. Studied further 
chemistry at the laboratory of L. F. Svanberg 1844. 
Worked in Finland as fieldgeologist at gold-expeditions to 
Kuusamo. Back in Sweden scholarship at Jernkontoret 
to 1857. Mineralogical travels in Sweden during field 
seasons where followed up with winters in laboratory. He 
described several new minerals from the phosphate bearing 
quartzite at Horrsjöberg, Värmland. Moved 1859 back 
to his family home at Persberg, where he stayed until 
1871. During this time I. continued his scientific work 
even though he had no official position. Especially the 
mineral recourses of Värmland was investigated. Igelström 
recognized hausrnannite and braunite in the Långban-type 
manganese ore deposits Långban, Nordmark and Pajsberg 
and described oddities such as native lead, monimolite, 
manganophyllite, pyroaurite etc. from these localities. He 
even recognized a new Långban-type deposit; Sjögruvan 
in Grythytte parish After I's move to Gräs 1871 follows an 
idle period regarding his scientific work. The reason for this 
was that I was more heavily involved in farming both at his 
family home and his new home that came into the family 
via his wife. Also, Gräs was much more peripheral to the 
mining areas of Värmland when comparing to his earlier, 
central position in Persberg. In the 1880 's he resumed 
his mineralogical investigations, especially from Sjögruvan 
from which he described several new species (today many 
of these have been discredited). 

Igelströms accomplishments has to be judged in the 
light of his own time. Doing that he stands out as one of the 
major Swedish mineralogists. He was extremely productive 
and published more than 100 articles and short notes in 
geology and mineralogy in the major Swedish journals of 
the time many of thes went out in translated versions in 
several german and french scientific journals.

IMPERATO, Ferrante. (BORN: Naples, Italy, cl550; 
DIED: Naples, Italy, cl631) Italian naturalist & 
pharmacist. 

Little is known of Imperato's life. He owned a 
prosperous pharmacy in Naples, and founded the botanical 
gardens of city. Imperato also corresponded with many of 
the famous naturalists of the time, including Aldrovandi, 
Bauhin, Clusius, Mattioli. His son, Franceso, a lawyer, 
inherited the collections. His numerous travels in southern 
Italy allowed him to collect many mineral exemplary, 
vegetables and animals, and to make many detailed 
observations on geological outcrops.

including botany, mineralogy, metallurgy, mining, 
zoology, etc. The dedication is to Juan Fernßndez 
de Velasco, duque de Frías. In his address to the 
reader, Imperato names Niccolò Antonio Stigliola as 
having consulted on the text. Thorndike believes 
Stigliola to be the actual author. On the question of 
authorship see V. Placcius, Theatrum anonymorum et 
pseudonymorum, 2 (Hamburg, 1708), p. 379, no. 1430. 
See also Murray, D. (1904). There are 126 woodcuts 
in the text. These are of gems, plants, sea creatures, 
reptiles, and insects. Mortimer suggests Mario Cartaro 
as artist of these blocks. First edition printed in a 
small edition for friends of Imperato. The striking 
double— page frontispiece shows his magnificent library 
and museum, a vast collection of prepared animals (i.e., 
birds, fish, insects, and a huge crocodile fastened to the 
ceiling) and several shelves of books. The text woodcuts 
show plants, animals, minerals, etc. 

Of further interest is the theory, introduced 
by Thorndike and based on two 17th century 
bibliogrpahies that the actual author of the book was 
not Imperato but Antonio Nicolo Stelliola (or Stigliola) 
[?????], friend and disciple of Galilei and author of the 
earliest treatises on the construction of the telescope 
(1627). For an excellent detailed description of the book 
with illustr see Ruth Mortimer, Harvard College Italian 
16th Century Books II, 240, note NBG XXV, col 831.

ISIDORUS HlSPALENSIS. (BORN: Cartagena or 
Seville, Spain, c570; DIED: Seville, Spain, 636) Spanish 
encyclopaedist. 

Isidore, Bishop of Seville, became, thanks to his 
remarkable Etymologies, or the Origins of Words, the chief 
authority of the Middle Ages, and the presence of his 
encyclopedia in every monastic, cathedral and college 
library was a main factor in perpetuating the state of 
knowledge and the modes of thought of the late Roman 
world. He was Bishop of Seville from around 600 until his 
death.

EtymologIíE, 1472 

the earliest printed map of the world, a schematic "Г- 
map' with areas marked as Asia, Europe, and Africa, 
the whole surrounded by a circle of water, with inland 
waterways between the continents — that between 
Europe and Africa being marked as the Mediterranean. 
There is also an illustration of the earliest printed tree 
of consanguinity. 

This work, the most notable of Isidore, is the 
standard authority upon the state of learning at the 
end of the 6th and beginning of the 7th century. 
Divided into twenty books, it "defines or discusses terms 
drawn from all aspects of human knowledge and is 
based ultimately on late Latin compendia and gloss 
collections. The books of greatest scientific interest 
deal with mathematics, astronomy, medicine, human 
anatomy, zoology, geography, meteorology, geology, 
mineralogy, botany, and agriculture... His influence in 
the Middle Ages and Renaissance was great, and he 
remains an interesting and often authoritative source for 
Latin lexicography, particularly in technical, scientific, 
and nonliterary fields." — DSB. 

In terms of mineralogy, Book XVI, "De lapidibus 
et metallis," describes stones, minerals, and metals. 
This was one of the principal sources available in the 
Middle Ages for ideas about minerals and stones, and 
was compiled by Isidorus from ancient sources, the most 
important being Pliny.

and representing "the amount of Arabic chemical 
knowledge made available to Latin reading people 
toward the end of the 13th century .. the best 
Latin knowledge of chemistry in that period. We 
find in them [Geber's writings] remarkably sound views 
on methods of chemical research; a theory of metals 
(the six metals differ essentially because of different 
proportions of sulfur and mercury in them); preparation 
of various substances (e.g., basic lead carbonate; arsenic 
and antimony from their sulfides). Geber deals also 
with various applications, e.g., refinement of metals, 
preparation of steel, dyeing of cloth and leather, 
varnishes to water-proof cloth and to protect iron, use of 
manganese dioxide in glass-making, use of iron pyrites 
for writing in gold, distillation of vinegar to concentrate 
acetic acid. He observed the imponderability of

magnetic force." The study of the manuscripts and 
printed texts of Geber suggests that the corpus of 
the writings attributed to Geber is not the work of a 
single man but, rather, that of a school. In addition 
to the Latin alchemical writings, which appeared in 
the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, there are older 
works from the tenth century written in Arabic under 
the name of Geber. The author of these Arabic writings, 
however, was not the same as the author of the Latin.

physician & chemist. 

Jackson obtained his medical degree from Harvard in 
1829. He was interested in geology as well as medicine and 
chemistry and he made several geological surveys of various 
parts of New England between 1837 and 1844. Always a 



quarralsome type with a touch of madness underneath the 
surface, he went mad in 1873 and never recovered.

widely in Europe and was thoroughly knowledgeable 
on the subject of the statistics of the precious metals. 
He was appointed to the comptrollership of corn 
returns in 1822. "On the suggestion of Huskisson, 
[Jacob] undertook an inquiry into the production and 
consumption of the precious metals. This work shows 
great research, but is defective, which may be attributed 
partly, for the more recent periods, to the insufficient 
historical information available then" (Palgravell, 471). 
"Mr. Jacob has recently published An Historical Inquiry 
in which he takes up the subject at the earliest 
period, and continues to the present day. This work 
... contains a good deal of valuable information, and 
deserves the attention of all who take an interest in 
such inquiries." (J.R. MacCulloch, A Dictionary of

SCARCE. As the librarian of Copenhagen 

University, Jacobaeus was also given the duty to arrange 
the Royal Collection of Curiosities, of which this is a 
printed description. It incorporates all the collections 
made by OLE WORM and Bernard Paludanus [??- 
??]. The text provides descriptions of the museum 
specimens, some of which are shown on the fine plates. 
The engraved frontispiece shows a portrait of Christian 
V, the royal coat-of-arms, and a view of the "Museum 
Regium." The plates show a curious mixture of 
man-made and natural objects, including an Eskimo 
costume, coins, medals, stuffed animals, birds, fish, 
shells, serpents, insects, as well as fossils and minerals. 
The depiction of items is even carried into the engraved 
head- and tail-pieces as well as the engraved initials, all 
of which show other collection specimens. 

The Natur alia portion is divided into seven 
sections: (1) Man, including mummies and other 
animals and quadrupeds, (2) Birds, (3) Fish, (4) Shells, 
(5) Reptiles and Insects, (6) Plants, and (7) Metals, 
minerals, stones and earths. The Artificiaba has five 
divisions corresponding to: (1) Artificial objects of 
metal, wood, bone, horn and amber, (2) Weapons, 
clothes, implements and utensils from India, Turkey, 
Greenland and elsewhere, (3) Antiquities, (4) Scientific 
and mechanical apparatus, and (5) Coins, medals, 
seals.

JACQUIN, Nikolaus Joseph Freiherr von. (Born: 
Leyden, The Netherlands, 16 February 1727; DIED: 
Vienna, Austria, 24 October 1817) Austrian botanist 
& chemist. 

Already an established naturalist, Jacquin moved 
from his native land to Vienna in 1752. There he 
accepted an appointment by Francis I as the imperial 
botanist, and in this capacity he made from 1755 to 
1759 an extended botanical expedition to America. Upon 
Jacquin's return he was appointed councilor for mines, and 
professor of chemistry, metallurgy, mining and metallurgy 
at Schemnitz, Hungary. In 1797, he became professor of 
chemistry and botany at the University of Vienna. For his 
service to the monarchy, he was made a Baron in 1806. In 
1804, Jacquin was elected a member of the French Academy 
of Sciences. In addition, the plant genus "Jacquine" was 
named in his honor by Linneaus.

SCARCE. This collection contains articles on 
botany, chemistry, mineralogy, entomology, pharmacol- 
ogy, zoology, etc. Although volume on contains mostly 
botanical themes, the second volume include illustra- 
tions of some other natural history subjects including 
Carinthina wulfenite. This is contained in Wulfen's ar- 
ticles, "Minera Plumbi Spatosa Carinthiaca" and "Ex- 
ploratio Chemica Plumbi Spatosi flavi Carinthiaci" by 
F.X. Wulfen. 

"This, like its continuation of larger format, the 
Collectanea [see next entry], was a device for publishing 
articles of Jacquin et amicorum ... Among the friends, 
Franz Xaver von Wulfen (1728-1805) is especially im- 
portant for his 'Plantae rarioresCarinthiacae.' ... Great 
Flower Books notes that the drawings for the plates 



were by Jacquin and the engravings by Adam." — Hunt.

Jameson 



Scottish mineralogist & geologist. 

Jameson was a student of John Walker [1743-1804] 
at the University of Edinburgh. In 1800, he studied 
mineralogy and geology at the Freiberg Bergakademie 
under A.G. WERNER. In 1804, upon the death of Walker, 
he succeeded to the Regius Chair of Natural History, at the 
University of Edinburgh, a position he held until his own 
death. In 1808, he help found the WERNERIAN NATURAL 
History Society, and cofounded in 1819 with David 
Brewster [1781-1868], The Edinburgh Philosophical Journal. 
Jameson is today remembered as the greatest exponent of 
Werner's geological theories in Britain; however, later in 
life, he accepted Hutton's views. In 1826, he was elected 
a Fellow of the Royal Society. The mineral "Jamesonite" 
was named for him by W. HAIDINGER in 1825.

RARE. Robert Jameson, who was decended 
from a Shetland family, was interested in natural 
history from childhood. When he became a student 
at Edinburgh University, he attended lectures on the 
subject given by John Walker [1731-1803], and was 
introduced to geology. Soon Jameson was his teacher's 
favorite student and was given charge of the university's 
museum and taken on field excursions. In 1794, at the 
age of 20, he decided to make the study of geology 
his life's work. Consequently, he spent his summers 
studying geology and natural history in the Shetland 
Islands, and in 1797, he arranged an extended visited 
to the Island of Arran. His observations on the nature 
of these two locations was published as his Outline of 
the Mineralogy of the Shetland Islands and the Island 
of Arran, the first modern geological examination of the 



region.

SCARCE. In 1798, Jameson spent the summer 
exploring the Hebrides and the Western Islands, and 
in 1799 he investigated the Orkneys and revisited 
Arran. As a result of these journeys he published the 
much expanded Mineralogy of the Scottish Isles, which 
incorporated much of the material from his former 
Outline of the Mineralogy of the Shetland Islands and 
the Island of Arran (London, 1798).

VERY SCARCE. In the preface to this work, 
Jameson reviews the classifications of Cronstedt and 
Wallerius and introduces Werener's classification which 
he then adopts for the work. The first two volumes 
are a descriptive mineralogy, based upon Wernerian 
doctrines. The third volume, published in 1808, 
is subtitled "Elements of Geognosy" and comprised 
the first detailed explanation in English of Werner's 
geological theories and his classification of the rock 
strata.

VERY SCARCE. Enlarged and corrected edition. The 
present work represents the sum of mineralogical knowledge 
extant in the early years of the 19th century. The first 
volume opens with a list of works consulted and is followed 
by a systematic description of species, according to classes, 
which continues into the second volume. Here it is followed 
by a series of appendices of additional species, additional 
British localities, and a tabular view of other systems of 
mineralogy, beginning with Linné 1736 and including all 
the important classification schemes to Jameson's day. The 
third volume is devoted to metallic minerals and closes with 
indices to all volumes in English, German, and French. The 
plates show various crystal forms.

minerals and abstracted the information from the fuller 
treatment he provides in his three volume System 
of Mineralogy (London, 1820) to create the more 
concise treatment given in this work. The rocks 
are arranged according to their geological relations, 
and the descriptions and history are given in such a 
manner that the student will be able to determine 
the nature of the veins and strata of a country. The 
introduction begins with a sketch of Mohs classification 
system, and the basic characters used to distinguish 
between species. The text then presents a descriptive 
mineralogy arranged in the Classes and Orders of Mohs 
classificatory system. Also contained is a long section 
on the description and arrangement of mountain rocks. 
It is based on Mohs' classification system which first 
appeared in 1820.

SCARCE. The text was originally printed in the 
supplement volume to the Encyclopaedia Britannica; 
however, it was printed in this separate form to 
make it more readily available for the use of the 
students of mineralogy. Although written for the 
beginner, it could also be consulted by more advanced 
mineralogists. Jameson bases his classification upon 
the system proposed by Friedrich Mohs, which was the 
reigning natural history method. 

In the Characters of Minerals, all the typical 
physical properties such as cleavage, hardness, 
specific gravity, color, lustre, fracture, transparency, 
crystallization, etc. Jameson then presents his system 
of arrangement, and his method for determing the mode 
of a mineral, so that it could be placed correctly in the 
system. More than half of the volume is then given over 
to presenting a descriptive mineralogy arranged in the 
system.

Rare in complete copies. First appearance 
of this comprehensive and well illustrated treatise 
on theoretical and practical metallurgy, published 
posthumously by Gabriel's brother, M.G. Jars, who 
had accompanied him on his journey through Belgium, 
Holland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, England and 
Scotland. The French government commissioned 
Antoine Gabriel Jars to visit mines in these countries, 
studying their techniques and methods. In this way 
Jars observed the use of coke in melting iron, and 
he was the first French metallurgist to apply this 
technology in an experiment, melting copper with coke 
in 1769. At first his reports to the French government 
remained unpublished for fear that foreign governments 
would profit from this specialist knowledge. However 
in 1769 after his sudden death Jars's brother began 



to publish the writings in this first French edition. 
"Ce livre très estimé, offre, non un itinéraire, mais 
divers mémoires sur les mines des pays visités par 
l'auteur: elles sont décrites avec beaucoup d'exactitude; 
Jars donne leur histoire, les règlements et la forme 
de leur administration, le mode de leur exploitation 
..." (Quérard). The text gives descriptions of mines 
producing all kinds of metals, the manufacture of azure, 
white lead, zinc, minium, brass, sulfur, alum, salt, 
vitriol, bricks, pottery, tiles, coins, etc. The plates show 
accurate layouts and cross-sections of mines, furnaces, 
iron and steel works, shafts, mining equipment, plans, 
and some maps with mining veins indicated.

writer & school teacher. 

Jehlica was educated in Prague. He entered into 
the teaching profession, and taught in a number of Czech 
towns, including Jindïichûv, Hradec, Cheb and Prague. 
Later in his career he became inspector of schools for 
several different districts. He authored books in several 
fields including poetry, fiction, books for children and 
natural history, as well as translations into the Czech 
language of several works.

(pp. 1-73) focuses on geology, while the second (pp. 
74-167) describes aspects of mineralogy and European 
mineral resources. In his descriptive mineralogy, the 
author uses a classification scheme probably derived 
from some German system, which groups the minerals 
into: 1. gaseous minerals, 2. liquid minerals, 3. 
soluble minerals, 4. crude minerals (German: erdige 
Mineralien), 5. metallic minerals and 6. flammable 
minerals. He also provides good descriptions of several 
European mineral deposits.

Societät für die gesammte 



JENA, Germany. 
Mineralogie. 

Founded 1797. This is the first scientific society 
devoted exclusively to mineralogy. It was established 
through the efforts of Johann Georg Lenz [q. v.], a professor 
at the city's University. Lenz together with 18 other 
founding members elected Count Domokos Teleki [1773— 
1798], an amature mineral collector as chairman, and this 
set the tone of cooperation between scientists and collectors 
within the organization. 

By 1801, the Societät für die gesummt Mineralogie 
zu Jena had a membership of 595 members, including 
many enthusiastic amateurs and professional mineralogists 
and students throughout Europe. Many of the best 
known mineralogical authors of the time held membership. 
Unfortunately, the complete roster of names as not 
survived, only some interesting statistics. Of the 

membership, a high percentage were probably students 
since 126 lived in Jena and 73 others were Hungarian in 
nationality.

VERY SCARCE. Authored by Johanna Salomon 
[1920-1989] this thoroughly researched volume is the 
only modern history of the first mineralogical society. 
The author who died before seeing his book in print has 
written a concise and accurate statement of the Sozietät 
für die gesamte Mineralogie's role in mineralogy and 
German science in general. Using the previously 
overlooked archives of the University of Jena as well 
as many other sources a vivid biography is crafted of 
this Society from its founding in 1796 until its demise 
in 1830. Included within the 1170 notes are many 
biographical referneces to the Society's members. 

The contents may be described as: I. History 
of the Society from 1796 to 1830. II. Biography 
of the founder Johann Georg Lenz. III. Goethe as 
president. IV. Dominik Teleki von Szék and members 
from Hungary and Transylvania.

JOANNES DE SANCTO GEMINIANO. (Born: San 

Gimignano, Italy, 1270?; DIED: Siena, Italy?, 1323) 
Italian Dominican, preacher & encyclopaedist. 

Giovanni de Goro (or Gorini), Giovanni Coppo (or de' 
Coppi), Joannes Gorinus de Sancto Geminiano or Giovanni 
da San Gimicnano assumed the Dominican habit in Siena, 
Italy. He was middle-aged by the beginning of the 14th 
century and by 1314 he was famous throughout Italy as a 
popular lecturer. He authored many ecclesiastical works, 
including sermons, orations and commentaries on the 
Gospels, but his lasting monument is a large encyclopedia 
intended for use by the Dominican preachers. He is also 
credited with documenting the legend of his home town's 
patron saint, Santa Fina (i.e., Serafina).

Joannes de Sancto Geminiano 



Extremely rare. A large encyclopedia of 
natural, legal and moral knowledge to provide as many 
concrete illustrations as possible in support of medieval 
sermons. The original manuscript to this work was 
completed by 1313, if not earlier, and first printed in 
this edition by Richardus Pafraet [see note below]. 

Joannes de Sancto Geminiano divides the text 
into 10 books, each of which is in-turn divided into 
various chapters. The commentary is devoted to setting 
forth resemblances, chiefly those of material things, to 
things of the mind and spirit. Typical of his age, the 
author sometimes indulges in what are now viewed as 
far-fetched examples, but would have been standard 
views of the educated class of the period. Although not 
explicitly stated, the ten books probably relate to the 
ten divisions in the Ptolemaic heavens. The ten books 
provide numerous examples or "Resemblances" to each 
of the following subjects in succession: (1) De Ccelo et 
Elementis, or those to be found in the "Heavens and the 
Elements," (2) De Metalliset Lapidibus, in "Metals and 
Stones," (3) De Vegetabilibus et Plantis, in "Vegetables 
and Plants," (4) De Natatilibus et Volatilibus, in 
"Fishes and Birds," (5) De Animalibus Terrrestribus, 
in "Terrestial Animals," (6) De Homine et Membris 
eius, in "Man and his Members," (7) De Visionibus et 
Somniis, in "Dreams and Visions," (8) De Canonibus 
et Legibus, in "Canons and Laws," (9) De Artificibus 
et Rebus Artificialibus, in "Arts and Artificial Things," 
(10) De Acitbus et Moribus Humanis, in the "Actions 
and Customs of Men." 

Book II covers the metals and stones. Descriptions 
within it say that sapphire is the act of divine 
contemplation, while asbestos resembles hell fire, and 
bitumen bears a resemblance to charity. Some of the 
comparisons are strange and startling to say the least. 
For example, the comparison between asbestos and hell 
fire are based upon a misconception of this mineral. 
The name, "asbestos," is derived from the Greek 
(Cisbestoz) and means 'unquenchable," an allusion to 
the fact that even though it can be reduced to a fibrous 
condition that resembles the fibers of cotton or wool, it 
cannot be destroyed by fire. This property gave rise to 
the myth that it was a substance which when heated 
to the point of combustion, it would burn forever, and 
could never be extinguished. Hence, the resemblance to 
the fire of hell is derived. 

Numerous editions of this book appeared.

Sebastian Brant. (BORN: Strassburg, Germany, 1458; 
DIED: Strassburg, Germany, 10 May 1521) German humanist 
& satirist. Brant studied at Basel and took the degree of 
doctor of laws in 1489. He was a longtime professor of 
jurisprudence there. He retired to Strassburg, where he 
was made syndic of the town. Today, he is remembered for 
his famous satire, Das Narrenschriff [English: Ship of Fools] 
(1494), which describes a ship laden with fools and steered 
by fools to the fools' paradise of Narragenia.

8°: xii, 522, [2] p., 2 plates (folding). 

VERY RARE. With a foreword written by MARTIN 
Heinrich Klaproth, this is the first volume of a 
series of six that contains the analytical memories of 
the author. This initial volume works as a good 
general textbook on practical chemistry techniques in 
the laboratory. It concentrates on the chemical analysis 
of natural objects including minerals, with information 
on the reagents used in the manipulation. Other 
volumes of the series contain analyses of natural objects 
from the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms. With 
regard to mineral analyses, John investigated zinc ores, 
meteorites, columbite, tantalite, aragonite, manganese 
oxides, native silver, copper, and arsenic. He also 
investigated colored rock salt and found that yellow and 
red were caused by iron oxides, and although unable to 
determine the cause for the blue coloring, definitively 
showed that it was not due to copper.

SCARCE. First published in 1632, Jonston's 

Thaumatographia is a compendium of wonders of the 
world of nature. It is a collection of observations and 
references of natural marvels, retrieved from all ancient 
and contemporary literature, and organized by the author 
into a series of distinct sections. Jonston organizes the 
text into ten classes that describe: the heavens, the 
elements, meteors, minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, 
insects and bloodless animals, fish and men. The second 
on fossils and minerals is quite extensive with references 
to Albertus Magnus, Pliny and Theophrastus. A section 
within the class of plants, discusses tobacco and includes 
early references to nature in America.

included/understood it, finds its expression succinte 
in the opuscule of Jean Jonston, published in 1661 
with Leipzig, heading Notifia regni mineralis seu 
subterraneorum catalogue. Coming from a Scottish 
family established in Poland, Jonston said itself one, 
Scoto-Polonus " . Born in Szamotuly in 1605, it took its 
doctorate of medicine in Leyde; the major part of its life 
ran out in Leszno at the court of Boguslas Leszczynski, 
of which he was the doctor and the tutor. It starts its 
treaty by a review of the gases which are released from 
the ground and by that of water which results from 
this. It distributes the matters of mines themselves 
in five groups, namely: 1), glèbes, 2) solidified juices, 
3) resins, 4) stones, 5) metals. We cannot occupy us 
here of the detail of the classification of Jonston. It 
is based on qualities less essential, external, like state 
of aggregation, degree of limpidity, color. It could not 
be of it differently. At that time, analytical chemistry 
was hardly at its beginnings;the bases of systematic 
reasonable of minerals did not exist yet. 

It should be believed, according to the final words 
of the opuscule of Jonston, that it conceived it like a 
draft of a broader work. But this work never appeared.

VERY SCARCE. Jourdan's Dictionary of the Terms 
Used in the Natural Science gathers the technical terms 
in general contemporary use including their etymology, 
history, synonyms, and foreign equivalents. Among the 
thousands of terms defined are included those used in 
geology and mineralogy. It is one of several science 
dictionaries published in the mid-19th century, but

JUGEL, Johann Gottfried. (Born: Oberlausitz, 
Austria, 1707; DIED: Berlin, Germany, 12 May 1786) 
German alchemist. 

In 1742 Jugel was appointed the director of mining 
activities in Prussia. He gathered a considerable reputation 
for his knowledge of the world of science and nature, 
especially chemistry, mineralogy, mining, and iron making. 
All his life had been devoted to the investigation of nature, 
and in some 36 books and papers he had recorded his 
views in the mathematical, mining, and occult sciences. On 
account of his reputed knowledge of chemistry, he became 
a member of the Rosicrucian Society. He was, however, 
attacked by Kopp, who calls his work a "coagulum of 
nonsense" and considers that he has given proof that the 
science of the later Rosicrusians was "pseudo-science of the 
most contemptible kind." He believed strongly in alchemy. 
At his retirement in 1771, he moved to Berlin.

JUNGIUS (Jung), Joachim. (BORN: Lübeck, Ger- 
many, 22 October 1587; DIED: Hamburg, Germany, 
22/23 September 1657) German physician & natural- 
ist. 

Jungius was educated in philosophy at the University 
of Giessen and received in 1618 his M.D. from Padua, 
Italy. He was appointed professor of mathematics at the 
University of Giessen where he remained from 1608 to 1614. 
Subsequently, Jungius became professor of medicine at the 
Universities of Rostock (1624-25) and Helmstadt (1625-26). 
Appointed as Rector of the Hamburg Gymnasium (1628- 
29). Jungius founded in 1622 in Rostock the short lived 
philosophical society Societas Ereunetica. He was an early 
champion of the atomic theory and developed a method 
of plant classification based on genus and species which 
foreshad' iwei 1 Linne aus.

VERY RARE. Edited by Christian Bunck [ 
1659] and Johann Vaget [1633-1691]. During his lifetime 
Jungius published little, but left directions in his will 
that his very large collection of papers (which were 
difficult to read) should be arranged and published, 
and a bequest was left for this undertaking. Among 
these was the Mineralia that consists primarily of 
excerpts from printed books and criticisms of Agricole 
principally on philosophical points. Jungius also refutes 
Agricola's classification of minerals into earths, concrete 
juices, stones and metals, substituting a system of 
metals, sulfur, salts, and stones. However, Jungius'

criticism of contemporary mineral chemistry and his 
support of an atomic theory was an important step 
in the development of chemical theory comparable to 
Agricola's work with respect to the physical theory of 
minerals.

KALM, Pehr. (BORN: Angermanie, Finland, March 
1716; DIED: Uppsala, Sweden, 16 November 1779) 
Swedish traveler, botanist & geologist. 

Kalm was born the son of a Lutheran minister. 
In 1735, he was admitted to Åbo University (Finland) 
and then to Uppsala University (Sweden) in 1740. The 
following year Kalm became a student and friend of Carl 
von Linné (Linneaus), the famous naturalist. Under the 
latter's influence Kalm developed a profound interest in 
the application of botany to agricultural and industrial 
problems. In 1747 he was designated by the Swedish 
Academy of Sciences to travel to North America to collect 
seeds of plants that might prove useful for feeding people 
or animals, or have some other industrial, domestic or 
medical purpose. Kalm remained in America, mainly in 
New England, from 1748 to 1751. After his return to 
Sweden, Kalm became an instructor at Abo University, 
where he remained until his death.

VERY SCARCE. This work describes Kalm's 
extensive travels in northern Europe and North 
America taken between 1747 and 1749. The first 
two volumes treat the author's travels in Norway 
and England, while the third contains observations 
on Canada and New England. The voyage was 
undertaken at the request of the Swedish government 
for the purpose of discovering whether any North 
American plants could be introduced advantageously 
into Sweden. Kalm being one of the ablest naturalists 
of his time, however, includes numerous observations 
on the landscape, mountains, rivers, geology and 
mineralogy of the regions visited. 

Pehr Kalm's journey to North America originated 
in a suggestion to Linnaeus by a member of the 
Swedish Academy of Sciences. It was proposed that 
a collecting trip be made to regions lying in about 
the same latitudes as Sweden, with the purpose of 
discovering new plants of economic and medicinal value. 
Linnaeus enthusiastically supported the project. He 
was particularly interested in bringing the Morus rubra,

a kind of mulberry tree, from America to Sweden 
so that a domestic silk industry could be started. 
On Linnaeus' recommendation the Academy approved 
the trip, selected Pehr Kalm as its emissary and 
the necessary funds were provided. Kalm arrived in 
Philadelphia in 1748 and after numerous excursions in 
the districts around that city and New York, he set out 
for Canada in 1749. He travelled by way of Al-bany 
and Saratoga and eventually reached Montreal, Three 
Rivers and Quebec. The next year he visited Lake 
Ontario and- Niagara Falls. He returned to Sweden 
in July of 1751 bringing with him a large collec-tion of 
plant specimens and seeds which he considered might be 
use- fully grown in Sweden. His collections are preserved 
in the Botanical Museum at Uppsala. Kalm's account 
of his travels, En resa till Norra America, contain-ing 
detailed descriptions of conditions in the new country, 
became very popular and was translated into German, 
French, English (three editions), and Dutch.

KANT, Immanuel. 

Kant is one of the most influential philosophers in 
the history of Western philosophy. His contributions to 
metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics have had 
a profound impact on almost every philosophical movement 
that followed him. 

German philosopher and founder of critical philoso- 
phy. The son of a saddler, Kant was born and educated 
in Königsberg (Kaliningrad) in East Prussia. After leav- 
ing the university he spent a number of years in private 



tutoring, but taking his master's degree in 1755, he set- 
tled to teach a variety of subjects as Privatdozent. In 1770 
he was appointed to the chair of logic and metaphysics at 
Königsberg. It was after this that he entered on his great- 
est, "critical" period. His life was orderly to the point of 
caricature: he never left Königsberg, and never married. 

In spite of notorious difficulty of reading Kant, made 
worse by his penchant for scholastic systematization and 
obscure terminology, his place as the greatest philosopher 
of the latest three hundred years is well assured.

Kant arranged geography into six ranges, about 
which, physical geography, when basis of the five 
of other ranges was regarded (mathematical, moral, 
political, economic and theological geography). Kant 



kept the Kolleg over physical geography of the 
beginning of his Privatdozentur (1755) up to the end 
of his lecture activity in the summer constant 1796 
after ' own dictatis ' and not at the manual one

VERY SCARCE. This is a descriptive catalog of the 
mineralogical portion of Nathanael Gottfried Leske's 
[see note below] natural history collection. Since its 
publication this work has also been known by the name 
Museum Leskeanurn. An earlier part comprising a 
single volume and not described here, dealt with the 
entomological collection. 

Leske was one of the most prominent student's 
of Abraham Gottlob Werner. Between 1782 and 
1787 it was under the supervision of Werner that Leske 
arranged his large mineralogical collection according 
to Werner's theory of mineral collections. Upon 
Leske's death and at the urging of his heirs, Karsten 
another supporter of Werner continued to enlarge the 
collection and wrote this descriptive catalog. It was 
an important publication for presenting a practical 
example of Wernerian doctrine, thus helping to cement 
the theory in geological science. This publication also 
helped secure the sale of the 7,331 specimen collection 
to the Dublin Natural History Museum in 1792 for 1,350 
pounds. 

The collection is divided into five separate 
parts, in conformity with the rules outlined by 
Werner in his article "Von den verschiednerley 
Mineraliensammlungen, aus denen ein vollständiges 
Mineralienkabinett bestehen soll" [see Sammlungen 
zur Physik und Naturgeschichte: 1 (1778), 387— 
420]. According to Werner each part represented a 
separate study in mineralogical science as a whole, 



and therefore a complete cabinet of minerals must 
consist of as many distinct collections. The five parts 
correspond to: (1) oryctognosy, or the knowledge of the 
external characters of minerals, (2) systematics, or the 
arrangement of minerals into genera and species in a 
natural order, (3) geognosy, or the knowledge of the 
earth's internal structure, (4) mineralogical geography, 
or the distribution of minerals in the earth's crust, and 
(5) economic mineralogy, or the study of which minerals 
were valuable. 

The "Vorrede" contains an extended table of 
Werner's Mineralogical system, and the text is divided 
into five sections, each corresponding to a separate 
collection. 

Nathanael Gottfried Leske. (BORN: Muskau, Lusatia, 
Germany, 22 October 1751; DIED: Marburg, Germany, 
25 November 1786) German physician. Following the 
award of a medical degree in 1774, Leske was appointed 
extraordinary professor of natural history in 1775 and 
ordinary professor of economics in 1778 at the University 
of Leipzig. Shortly before his death he was made professor 
of public finance and administration at the University of 
Marburg.

Karsten 



(Wien, 1790). Estner had attacked Wernerian theories 
as presented by Karsten in his description of the Leske 
mineral cabinet [see entry above]. In this work, written 
in the form of a letter addressed to Estner, Karsten 
vigorously defends the Wernerian doctrine. After giving 
several pages in the way of a general introduction, 
he takes on Estner's work point by point, giving first 
a quotation from Estner's monograph followed by his 
response.

Burnet's Theory of the Earth his reputation increased, 
although his serious use of long trigonometrical proofs 
to oppose the Theory by testing its hypotheses is to the 
modern reader ridiculous.

VERY SCARCE. This juvenile work is a rather 
formal Victorian treatment of the hobby of mineral 
collecting in the form of a conversation between two 
Ohio boys visiting their uncle in Denver, Colorado. It 
is an entertaining read, giving a practical education in 
mining, minerals, and gemstones, with the additional 
colored frontispiece showing uncut jewels and minerals. 
A variety of subjects pertinent to mineralogy are 
covered in the 20 chapters.

KELLNER, David. (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.

Illustrierte Mineralogie 

In 1859, Johann Gottlob Kurr published Das Mineralreich a 
very popular coffee table book that beautifully illustrated 
minerals on 25 color plates. After Kurr's death, Kenngott 
took on the role of author and the result were these four 
issues that contain essentially the same text. Variations on 
the title pages differentiate the various issues.

SCARCE. This finely illustrated volume is divided 
into two sections. The first is the introduction which 
covers the forms of minerals and crystals, hardness, 
specific gravity, properties dependent on light and color, 
electricity, magnetism, and heat, chemical relations and 
a table of chemical elements. The remainder of the 
text is devoted to special or descriptive mineralogy. 
Here the various species and mineral groups are 
described. These include precious stones, hornblende or 
augite minerals, felspathic minerals, zeolithic minerals, 
micaceous minerals, calcareous minerals, compounds of 
baryta, compounds of strontia, salts of potash, salts of 
soda, salts of magnesia, salts of ammonia, combustible 
minerals, and metallic minerals or ores. 

The chromolithographie plates, first prepared in 
1859 are reproduced in beautiful renderings. See Kurr, 
Johann Gottlob for additional information.

KEPLER, Johannes. (Born: Weil der Stadt, 
Württemberg, Germany, 27 December 1571; DlED: 
Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany, 15 November 1630) 
German astronomer. 

One of the great geniuses of humanity, Kepler studied 
theology and classics at the University of Tübingen. 
There he became interested in mathematics and astronomy 
and became an adherent of the heliocentric theory of 
planetary motion first developed by the Polish astronomer 
Nicolaus Copernicus. Kepler accepted Copernican theory 
immediately, believing that the simplicity of Copernican 
planetary ordering must have been God's plan. In 1594, 
when Kepler left for Graz, Austria, he worked out a 
complex geometric hypothesis to account for distances 
between the planetary orbits-orbits that he mistakenly 
assumed were circular. Kepler later deduced that 

planetary orbits are elliptic; nevertheless, these preliminary 
calculations agreed with observations to within 5 percent. 
Kepler then proposed that the sun emits a force that 
diminishes inversely with distance and pushes the planets 
around in their orbits. Kepler published his account in a 
treatise entitled Mysterium Cosmographicum (Cosmographie 
Mystery) in 1596. This work is significant because it 
presented the first comprehensive and cogent account of 
the geometrical advantages of Copernican theory. 

Kepler held the chair of astronomy and mathematics 
at the University of Graz from 1594 until 1600, when he 
became assistant to the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe 
in the latter's observatory near Prague. On the death of 
Brahe in 1601, Kepler assumed his position as imperial 
mathematician and court astronomer. In 1612 Kepler 
became mathematician to the states of Upper Austria. 
Relocated to Linz, Austria, he began publishing a book 
that took three years to appear. The Epitome Astronomiae 
Copernicanae (Epitome of Copernican Astronomy, 1618-21), 
which brought all of Kepler's discoveries together in a single 
volume. Equally important, it became the first textbook 
of astronomy to be based on Copernican principles, and 
for the next three decades it was a major influence in 
converting many astronomers to Keplerian Copernicanism. 
Kepler also made contributions in the field of optics and 
developed a system of infinitesimals in mathematics, which 
was a forerunner of calculus.

VERY RARE. Kepler's Sterna- Seu de Niue 

Sexángula is the first scientific treatise concerning 
crystallography. This small tract, written in the 
form of a letter, was presented as a new year's gift 
to Matthaus Wackher von Wackenfels. In it Kepler 
ponders the problem of why snowflakes are always 
sixsided. But every explanation the author formulates, 
he also rejects and eventually Kepler concludes that 
the true explanation remains for future investigators 
to resolve. The crystallographic importance of this 
work arises from the author's discussions of space 
filling and symmetry. Published here for the first time 
are Kepler's discussions of how ordered symmetrical 
shapes arise from the packing together of similar bodies, 
even though the bodies are not symmetric themselves. 
Included in these observations are accounts of cubic 
and hexagonal closest packing, an important concept 
of modern crystallographic studies.

Rare. Edited by Ignaz Edler von Born, this is the 
first comprehensive study of the famous topaz deposit 
at the Schneckenstein in Saxony, the source of many 
mineral specimens of crystals. The work was edited and

Kern in 1775. The interesting folding plates show the 
columnar rock mass from four cardinal points of the 
compass, the final plate depicts specimens of crystals.

Rechter Gebrauch d' Alchimei, 1531 

with meanings and the table of contents.; Folios 3r-27v, 
Text. 

VERY RARE. This is the first in a series of 
books whose text was perennially copied, abstracted, 
enlarged and incorporated into books of differing titles 
down to the 18th century. Sometimes Kertzenrnacher's 
name was invoked in these works or as in this first 
appearance other times not. Based upon the reuse 
of the typeface, floral motifs and a woodcut with in 
the text, Ferguson (1888) assigns this first printing to 
the Frankfurt- am- Main publisher Christian Egenolph, 
whose establishment would print several other editions 
and reworkings of the text through out the 16th 
century. 

The contents of the book are of an entirely 
practical nature with little speculative alchemy. This 
is affirmed in the title of this little work that says the 
correct use of alchemy was not solely to transmute the 
metals, but to produce different substances that were 
in demand for every day uses. It is a collection of 
chemical receipts that probably had long been known 
to alchemists, metallurgists and others but had never 
before been categorized and laid before the public. 
Therefore the work paints a fairly accurate picture 
of the practical chemical knowledge at the beginning 
of the 16th century. Although not directly related 
to mineralogy, these little receipt books that dealt 
with alchemy, assaying, mining and such had the very 
practical value of disseminating techniques in chemical 
processes to a large audience. This in turn would 



influence the development of mineralogy, metallurgy 
and chemistry as they in turn became true scientific 
disciplines. 

The receipts are not arranged in any regular 
fashion, but may be divided into two main headings: 
1. substances and 2. processes. Among the substances 
mentioned are gold, silver, mercury, antimony, tin, 
lead, bismuth, copper and iron. Operations mentioned 
are combinations that made brass, amalgams of gold 
and silver, and the separation of gold by aquaregia. 
The processes described are all simple in nature, and 
relate mainly to gilding, tinning, silvering, oxidizing the 
various metals, precipaitation, crystallization, roasting, 
fusion, and cupellation. In no instance is any 
explanation provided of why the process works, not 
even in rudimentary concept. This would be left for 
the chemists of later years to work out.

VERY RARE. "Of the utmost rarity" according 

to Duveen, this is an early treatise on the practical 
applications of technological chemistry, including the 
manufacturing of colors, poisions and asphyxiating gases. 
The second portion describes the transmution and 
separation of gold and silver. Appended to the work is 
a treatise by Gilbertus Cardinal giving information on 
methods of putting metals into solution and the polishing 
of gemstones. Ferguson did not know of this edition, and 
he thought the first appearance was in 1539.

VERY RARE. According to Ferguson, this is the 4th 
issue of Kertzenmacher's book. Early work on minerals 
and mining, still full of supernatural belief but also 
full of observations and facts gained from nature and 
experience. The first edition, with the title still beginning 
with: "Alchirni und Bergwerck" , was published in 1539 at 
Strassburg by Jacob Cammerlandern. Ferguson states that 
the preface revealing the author's name was only added 
since the edition of 1570, but Duveen proved that is was 
already present in the second edition of 1546, which he had 
in his collection. This preface is headed as follows: "Petrus 
Kertzenmacher, etwann Bürger zu Meyntz, ein berühmpter 
Alchimist, wünscht dem Leser alles guts". On the person 
of Kertzenmacher however, nothing is known. He compiled 
his book from a number of earlier works, including the 
Rechter Gebrauch d'Alchimei from 1531. The book gives 
numerous recipes on colours, oils, distilled waters, and 
all sorts of minerals and metals, including a large section 
devoted to the transmutation and separation of gold and 
silver, and at the end a treatise by Gilbertus Cardinal is 
added on solution of metals, polishing of gems, and other 
practical applications of chemistry.

VERY SCARCE. Probably written as a companion 
textbook to the mineralogical lectures delivered by 
the author at Oxford, Outlines of Mineralogy is a 
derivative work that reflects the state of mineralogy 
during the first decade of the nineteenth century. It 
is principally based upon the earlier mineralogical 
writings of Richard Kirwan and René Just Haüy. 
For example, the system of classification that divides 
the mineral species has been lifted from Kirwan and 
uses the divisions of Earthy, Saline, Inflammable and 
Metallic Substances. An appendix handles rocks and 
other aggregates. The crystallographical information 
scattered through out is derived from Haüy.

Kircher was the youngest of six sons, whose father 
held a doctorate degree in theology. Kircher was provided 
an education in various Jesuit institutions, receiving a good 
classical education. In 1616 he elected to enter the Jesuit 
Order and in 1628 he was ordained a priest. Kircher 
was a polymath with interests in cartography, exploration, 
natural sciences, mathematics, natural philosophy, Greek, 
Latin, Hebrew, Syriac and oriental languages. In 1633, 
he answered a call to Rome by Pope Urban VIII and was 
appointed professor of mathematics, physics, and oriental 
languages at the Collegio Romano. He resigned in 1641 
to pursue independent studies, however. Kircher was a 
voluminous author writing on a wide variety of subjects 
that interested him.

Rare. First published in 1656, Itinerarium 
Exstaticum is one of Kircher's most curious works. It 
is written in the form of a narrative, consisting of two 
dialogues, in which a certain Theodidactus is caught up 
in a dream journey and is guided through the heavens 
by a spirit named Cosmiel. In the first dialogue, 
Kircher recounts the journey to the moon, which he 
finds scarred with mountains and craters, contrary to 
the Aristotelian view. He flies on to Venus, which he 
discovers is made of the four elements, and son on to 
each of the other planets and through the region of the 
fixed stars. In the second dialogue, he deals with the 
creation of the earth, its position in the universe, its 
various characteristics and limitations, and finally, its 
eventual destruction. The second edition of 1660 was 
prepared by Kircher's friend and disciple Gaspar Schott 
[1608-1666].

VERY SCARCE. First edition, first issue (engraved 
titles are dated 1664), of this famous and appealing 
book; it "must always command a high place in the 
literature as the first effort to describe the earth from 
a physical standpoint." (Zittel, p. 25). This work is 
concerned with geology, mineralogy, mining, astronomy, 
chemistry, and physics. The first two books contain 
a consideration of the center of gravity of the earth 
and the form and constitution of the sun, moon, and 
earth. Book III is devoted to hydrography and Book 
IV to the earth's interior, volcanoes, and winds. Books 
VI- VIII treat the earth's composition. Book X is 
devoted to minerals and mining. It is in this book 
that Kircher expressed for the first time the theory 
that the temperature below the earth's surface increases 
in proportion to depth. There are also sections on 
distillation (with some fine illustrations of distillation 
equipment) and glass-making. 

Mundus Subterraneus is Kircher's textbok of the 
physical sciences and is replete with illustrations. It 
was Kircher's most broadly known work during his life- 
time, and is the best known in ours. Many chapters 
deal with geology, mineraology, mining and metallurgy. 
But the work is not solely geologic. Kircher reports 
many fantastic speculations about the interior of the 
earth, its hidden lakes, its rivers of fire, and its strange 
inhabitants. Major topics include gravity, the moon, 
the sun, eclipses, ocean currents, subterranean waters 
and fires, meteorology, rivers and lakes, hydraulics, 
minerals and fossils, subterranean giants, beasts and 
demons, poisons, metallurgy and mining, alchemy, the 
universal seed and the generation of insects, herbs, 
astrological medicine, distillation, and fireworks. In 
this work he discloses his experience with palingenesis: 
he had allegedly resuscitated a plant from its ashes. 
Much of the work deals with alchemy. Kircher ridiculed 
Paracelsus' belief in transmutation and discredits the 
work of alchemists in general, complaining about the 



obscurity of their writings. This diatribe brought him 
vicious criticism and abuse later in life from alchemists 
who no longer feared the authority of the Jesuit order. 
In this book Kircher expressed for the first time the 
theory that temperature below the earth's surface 
increases in proportion to depth. Kircher's Mundus 
subterraneus contains the first appearance in book form 
of Eustachio Divini's (1610-1685) "Lunae Facies", a 
moon map first published in 1649 in broadsheet as an 
advertisement for the quality of his lenses.

Rare. "China, like Egypt, was to Kircher an 
ancient and mysterious land, highly civilized, filled 
with strange creatures and unimaginable marvels, and, 
above all, having an origin and universality common 
with all nations... China had been open to Christian 
missionaries for only a few decades when Kircher, at 
28, applied to go there. He was refused, but the 
refusal only whetted his curiosity. Over the next 37 
years he maintained a voluminous correspondence with 
fellow Jesuits in China, gleaning all the information 
he could from their letters and journals." Included in 
the observations and materials Kircher received about 
China were mineralogical specimens.

KIRWAN, Richard. (BORN: Cloughballymore, County 
Galway, Ireland, 1733; DIED: Dublin, Ireland, 1 
June 1812) Irish chemist, mineralogist, geologist & 
meterologist. 

In 1750, Kirwan enrolled with the Jesuits at the 
University of Poitiers (France), but in 1755, upon death 
of his brother, he returned to Ireland to inherit the family 
estates. Kirwan frequently traveled to London, remaining 
there ten years beginning in 1777. In London, his house 
became a well known meeting place for those distinguished 




Kirwan 

by birth, position, or achievement in science. In 1787, he 
returned to Ireland. Among the many societies Kirwan was 
elected to were the Royal Irish Academy, of which he was an 
original member and subsequently its president. In 1780, 
he was also elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of London, 
which awarded him the Copley Medal in 1782. The mineral 
"Kirwanite" was named for him by T. THOMSON in 1831.

[12 pgs], "Index." 

VERY SCARCE. The first systematic mineralogy 
in English that classifies minerals by their chemical 
composition. In the preface, Kirwan deplores the 
insignificant position that mineralogy holds in British 
science. He contrasts this to the progress made in 
Europe, especially Sweden, Germany and France. He 
then presents his reasons for writing the work. Citing 
that until recent advances in chemistry, mineralogy 
had never had an adequate base on which a system of 
classification could be founded, Kirwan discusses other 
methods of classification. While describing these other 
arrangements, he questions the merits of systems such 
as Rome de l'Isle's based on crystal form and Werner's 
based on external characters. He concludes that 
mineralogy must be considered a branch of chemistry. 
In this regard, Kirwan follows Cronstedt and uses 
the later's basic classification, subjugating the mineral 
species into Earths and Stones, Salts, Inflammables and 



Metals, based upon the species' chemistry. 

Kirwan copies from other author's in his mineral 
descriptions but gives interesting notes that suggest he 
duplicated the analyses of some species. He appends a 
chapter to the first part of the work that describes in 
some detail the procedures for determining analytically 
a minerals chemistry. Later, several tables are provided 
that give the results of many analyses. A table listing 
the specific gravities of gemstones is also included. 
The section of "Geological Observations" was of great 
controversy among the geologists of the day. 

Of particular historical interest to the properites 
of minerals is a section on pages 171—73 proposing 
a hardness scale for minerals. The original to this 
was published in Stockholm by Bengt Andersson Quist 
[q. v.] as "Försök pä en del Kisel arter och i synnerhet 
de hårdare så kallade Akta stenar," Kong!. Swenska. 
Wetenskaps Acad. Handlingar: 29 (1768), 55. This scale 
of hardness slightly modified by Kirwan is the first to be 
published in an English book. It is comprised of twenty 
divisions ranging from chalk (3) to diamond (20). 

Related work, 1799: Geological Essays. Besides his 
mineralogical works, Kirwan also authored Geological 
Essays (London, 1799) in which he vigourously opposed 
James Hutton's geological theories.

VERY SCARCE. An enlarged and entirely rewritten 
work based upon Wernerian theories. Kirwan the greatest 
mineralogist in Ireland was called upon by the parliment 
in 1792 to participate in a committee to purchase the 
mineral collection of Nathanael Gottfried Leske [q.v.]. To 
negotiate the matter he travelled to Germany where he met 
and became a disciple of Abraham Gottlob Werner [q.v.]. 
Kirwan was so enthusiastic about Werner's theories, that 
when he became involved in setting up the newly acquired 
collection in Ireland, he arranged its specimens according 
to his friend's ideas of classification. In the preface, Kirwan 
states that it was this experience that allowed him to 
write the the second edition of the Elements. The book's 
considerable enlargement is due in no small matter to the 
many more analyses and descriptions the author was able 
to include because of his access of the Leskean minerals. 
The arrangement of the text follows closely that of the first 
editii ai.

VERY SCARCE. Translation by Francisco Campuzano 
from Elémens de Minéralogie (Paris, 1785). This rare book 
is the first work in Spanish dealing solely with the science 
of mineralogy. In Campuzano 's notes, a case is made 
for the study of the science. The translator suggests 
that great knowledge and national prestige will be gained 
from discovering how minerals interact with chemistry, 
a question which then agitated the scientists of Kurope. 
Following Kirwan, the mineral kingdom is divided into four 
groups: earths and stones, salts, inflammable substances 
and metallic substances. The principal characters of 
each group are described together with the minerals that 
belong to it. An Appendix contains a brief account 
of geology and its principal phenomena, as well as a 
short description of the blowpipe and its use which is 
illustrated by the accompanying plate. That mineralogy 
was in flux as a science is evident throughout the volume 
from the translator's difficulty with dealing in the various 
terminology.

by the great Russian mineralogist Vas il if Mikhallovich Sev- 
ergin [q.v.] of Elements of Mineralogy (1st ed., London, 
1784). It has been greatly enlarged and supplemented by 
the translator, almost to the point of calling it a new work. 
It classifies and describes minerals on the basis of chemi- 
cal composition. Volume one contains descriptions of the 
Earths and Stones and the Salts, while the second describes 
Inflammable Substances and the Metals.

RARE. Separate issue of a paper first published 
in the Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy of 
Science [See: 8 (1800), 53-76]. Kirwan was prompted to 
author this article as a réponse to Guyton de Morveau's 
attacks against his mineralogical terminology (Annales 
de Chemie [See: 23 (1797), 103-4]. 

Kirwan being the leader of the old school of 
chemistry became the lightning rod for attacks by 
supports of the the new chemistry. Morveau, a man 
Kirwan greatly admired, was an enthusiastic supporter 
of Lavoiser's [q.v.] new chemistry and one of 

the principal reformers of chemical and mineralogical 
nomenclature. However, these attacks contributed to 
Kirwan's growing disenchantment with chemistry and 
mineralogy and eventually led to his retirement from 
the studies.

RARE. Catalogue over the mineral collection 
of Stora Kopparbergs mining company, that were 
operating the copper mine at Falun. The collection 
consist, it still exists, of four parts: the Bielke collection; 
a collection of minerals and rocks from the copper 
mine at Falun; a small collection of minerals from the 
Grängesberg iron ore field; a less important collection 
brought together by mine officials from abroad as well 
as material from the mine at Falun. The collection 
of count Nils Adam Bielke [1724-1792] is the most 
important as it is the only complete private 18th 
century mineral collection in Sweden (and maybe 
the whole of Scandinavia) that is complete and not 
dispersed within a larger collection. It was first donated 
to the Adelfors goldworks but later transferred to 
Falun by Bielkes widow. It consists of 7000 specimens 
distributed over approximately 5300 no's of which 2/3 
are minerals. [Entry by Johan Kjellman]

KJERULF, Theodor. (BORN: Christiania [now Oslo], 
Norway, 30 March 1825; DIED: Christiania [now Oslo], 
Norway, 25 October 1888) Norwegian mineralogist & 
geologist. 

Kjerulf was educated in the University at Christiania, 
and subsequently studied at Heidelberg, working in 
Bunsen's laboratory. In 1858 he became professor of 
geology in the university of his native city, and he was 
afterwards placed in charge of the geological survey of the 
country, then established mainly through his influence. His 
contributions to the geology of Norway were numerous and 
important, especially in reference to the southern portion 
of the country, and to the structure and relations of the 
various rock structures and the glacial phenomena. His 
principal results were embodied in his geological work 
Udsigt over det sydlige Norges Geologi (Kristiania, 1879). He 
also authored some poetical works.

(1787-1812), and professor of chemistry in the University 
of Berlin's Philosophical Faculty (1810-17). Klaproth 
was the outstanding analytical chemist of his time, being 
the discovery or co-discovery of the elements: zirconium 
(1789), uranium (1789), titanium (1792), strontium (1793), 
chromium (1797) and cerium (1803). He also confirmed 
thi' previous discoveries of tellurium (1798) and beryllium 
(1798). He was influential in spreading A. Lavosier's 
theories throughout Germany, and earning him the 
description, "Father of analytical chemistry." Klaproth 
also pioneered the application of chemistry to archaeology. 
Among many memberships in 1795 he was elected a Fellow 
of the Royal Society and in 1804 a foreign associate of 
the Institute of France. The discredited mineral species 
"Klaprothite" and "Klaprotholite" was named for him in 
1811 and 1872.

Klaproth 

KLAPROTH, Martin Heinrich. (BORN: Wernigerode, 
Germany, 1 December 1743; DIED: Berlin, Germany, 1 
January 1817) German apothecary & chemist. 

Klaproth was the third son of a tailor. In 1759, he 
was apprenticed to a Quedlinburg apothecary. In 1766, 
he moved to Hannover, then in 1768 to Berlin, where he 
managed the apothecary shop of the deceased Valentin 
Rose the Elder. In 1780, using his wife's dowry, he 
purchased his own apothecary shop. In 1782, Klaproth was 
named to the Prussian medical board, and he successively 
moved through the bureaucracy as assessor (1782-97), 
councilor (1797-99), and high councilor (1799-1817). He 
had teaching posts that included: private lecturer at the

VERY SCARCE. Translated by John Gottlieb 
Groschke. This treatise by the greatest German chemist 
of his time, deals with the chemical analysis of tin 
and copper ores from Cornwall, England. Although 
originally published as an article (see: Schriftteller der 
Gesellschaft für Naturforscher in Berlin, 7, 1786), the 
thoroughness of the study was considered important 
enough to have this English translation prepared. It is 
based on research done in cooperation with the English 
geologist, John Hawkins, who supplied samples of the 
ores. Using these specimens, Klaproth preformed many 
chemical experiments, and the descriptions of his tests 
together with their results makeup the content of the 
book. The frontispiece illustrates various specimens of 
wood tin (cassiterite).

VERY SCARCE. The index contained in volume 
5 covers the previous volumes. Klaproth expressed 
doubt that the publication would continue; however, 
the rare sixth volume, which is not present with many 
copies appeared in 1815. It was issued as a supplement 
to the previous volumes and contains its own index. 
Throughout his professional life, Klaproth published 
a large number of chemical researches, mostly in the 
field of analytic chemistry. These studies were based 
in large measure on thorough examination of various 
mineral species. The labratory techniques shown off 
in these studies were far in advance of their time, 
as is evident by the several new elements Klaproth 
discovered and the accuracy of the anaylses, which 
are comparable to present standards. Periodically, 
Klaproth would collect his papers together, and publish 
them together in Beiträge zur chemische Kenntniss 
der Mineralkörper. These volumes must, therefore, be 
considered one of the greatest works in chemical and 
deter minitive mineralogy ever published.

SCARCE. Based upon comments in the American 
Journal of Science reviews, this single volume was 
distributed in two parts. The first consisted of pages 
1-208 appeared in 1875, while the second incorporating 
pages 209-393 appeared in 1876. 

EDWARD S. DANAreviewing the work wrote Klein 
"develops the subject of Crystallography from the 
standpoint of Quenstedt, according to whom the 
relations of the planes of a crystal are shown by the 
lines in which they are projected upon a given plane of 
projection. He does not confine himself to the somewhat 
unwieldy formulas of Quenstedt, however, but makes 
all calculations of axial relations and parameters by 
means of spherical triangles in the manner employed 
by von Kobell. The author has worked out with 
much care and completeness the solutions of the various 
problems which arise, and accompanies each with an 
example performed in full, so the student cannot fail to 
comprehend the method." Reviewing the second part, 
Dana continues, "The present part includes a detailed 
description of the methods of calculation applicable 
to the monoclinic, triclinic, and hexagonal systems, 
the whole being characterized by the same clearness 
and thoroughness to which attention was before called. 
A chapter upon the drawing of crystals forms the 
conclusion of the work.

Klockmann 



KLOCKMANN, Friedrich Ferdinand Hermann. 

(BORN: Schwerin, Germany, 12 April 1858; DlED: 
Aachen, Germany, 17 November 1937) German 
mineralogist. 

In 1881 Klockmann graduated from the University 
of Rostock with a doctorate in mineralogy. In 1887 he 
became a professor of mineralogy and geology at the Mining 
Academin in Clausthal, but took a position in 1899 as 
professor of mineralogy and petrology at the Technical 
Highschool in Aachen where he spent the remainder of his 
career, becoming emeritus professor in 1923.

VERY SCARCE. This is the first appearance of a 
popular series of textbooks of mineralogy that would 
continue to be revised and expanded through other 
editors and authors to the present day, becoming known 
simply as Klockmann 's Lehrbuch. The basic themes of 
the science typical of all great textbooks are covered, 
including crystallography, the physics of minerals and 
chemical properties. The second part is a descriptive 
mineralogy. The work became widely used in the 
German education system.

RARE. By the late nineteenth century, chemistry 
and mineralogy were considered two distinct studies, 
although earlier in their history they were considered 
one and the same. Mineralogy had developed into a 
study of the materials, characteristics, properties and 
chemistry of various objects that naturally form part 
of the earth's crust. Using this image, Knop did not 
think minerals belonged to a special class of materials, 
but should in fact be treated as objects of general 
inorganic chemistry. He therefore called his mineralogy 
"Anorgranographie" and wrote a textbook on the 
subject that he titled, System the Anorganographie 
(Leipzig, 1876). In this work, he gives a classification 
of minerals together with all the chemical elements 
known at the time, as well as some naturally occurring 
organic compounds. Although this volume does propose 
a mineral system based on chemistry, it is so mixed 
with the other materials Knop includes as to be almost 
unrecognizable.

Knorr was a palaeontologist, painter, engraver and 
art dealer in the scientific center of Nuremburg. He made 
exceptional engraved portraits, landscapes and animal 
studies after Dürer that are today valued for their accuracy. 
Knorr is considered a protogeologist intermediate between 
collectors of natural history objects and those who first 
used fossils for identification and mapping of stratigraphie 
succession. But his renown is for the detailed and accurate 
scientific copper plates he created and used to illustrate the 
many works on natural history and paleontology authored 
by himself and others.

RARE. First appearance of this magnificently 
illustrated and popular natural history book. The 
work's purpose was to accurately describe and 
show the contents of a typical private museum 
or 'Wunderkammer' of the time. A descriptive 

text in German was prepared by Philipp Ludwig 
Statius Muller [see note below] and it describes each 
rendered specimen, including anecdotes and interesting 
observations but little true science. A long list of 
citations to naturalists of the 16th to 18th centuries is 
given in the preliminaries, including Linneaus' Systema 
Naturae, which is not followed. To appeal the book to a 
wider market, Knorr incorporated a French translation 
of the text by Mathieu Verdier de La Blaquière [7-1769] 
into parallel columns within the book. However, the 
lasting value and desirability of the book are the 91 
truly magnificent folio size hand-colored engraved plates 
showing a wide variety of specimens, including corals, 
shells, butterflies, minerals, metals, spiders, fish, birds, 
animals and reptiles. These plates prepared under 
Knorr's supervision are among his finest productions at

Knorr. 



a time when Knorr was perhaps the leading publisher 
of such plates. Often it is said that the beauty of these 
illustrations exceeds that of the models, which is why 
copies of this work are frequently broken. 

This is true of the six mineralogical plates that 
are among the best representations of hand-colored 
mineral illustrations ever produced. A total of about 
seventy specimens are rendered, including a fine azurite, 
whose intense blue color is derived from the inclusion of 
crushed lapis lazuli in the pigment and a large hematite 
spike that was illustrated several times in other books 
over the next two centuries. 

In the 18th century, Nuremberg became a 
leading center in the publication of finely illustrated 
natural history books. This was due in large part 
to the influence of J. Trew, a wealthy Nuremberg 
physician, who gathered around him leading scientists 
and artists. Trew's natural history cabinet and 
menagerie stimulated others in his circle to build their 
own collections, and it is from this source material 
that Knorr has drawn upon to illustrate the Delicias 
Naturas Selectas. This is indicated on the plates by 
text indicating from which collection the illustrated 
specimens were obtained. Trew is mentioned many 
times but so are P.L.S. Muller, D. Schadelock and Knorr 
himself. 

Bibliographically, the Delecias was originally 
published in two parts. The first appeared in 1754 with 
38 plates, including an additional engraved title page 
dated that year. In 1766, the second part containing 
the reaming 53 plates appeared. This has caused some 
bibliographers to suggest the work made two separate 
appearances, 1754 and 1766. However, this is not the 
case. 

Philipus Ludovicus Statius Muller. (BORN: Leeuwarden, 
The Netherlands, 25 April 1725; DIED: Erlangen, Germany, 
5 January 1776) Dutch theologian & naturalist. Statius 
Muller was a Lutheran cleryman at Amersfoort (1745- 
1749) and at Leeuwarden until 1756. He then accepted a 
position as professor of natural history at the University 
of Erlangen. He possessed a natural history cabinet 
containing many animals, some of which were depiced 
in Knorr's Delicias Naturas Selectas, which Statius Muller 
translated into Dutch.

[1754-] 1766. The text has been retranslated by Jakob 
Friedrich Isenflamm [see note below], and this treatment 
is considered the better of the two. This edition is the 
first to include the new preface by J.E.I. Walch, and other 
material. In addition to the plates of the first edition, this 
work has an fine engraved portrait of Knorr.

September 1726; DIED: Erlangen, Germany, 23 February 
1793) Austrian physician & botanist. Isenflamm received 
his M.D. from the University of Erlangen in 1749. From 
1750 to 1762, he returned to Vienna, where he opened 
a successful medical practice, in 1762, he made a trip 
of scientific discovery through Holland and France, and 
was named in 1763 ordinary professor of medicine and 
anatomy at the University of Erlangen. He authored many 
publications, but nothing that is considered a great work 
He also translated many German publications into French

KOBELL, Franz Wolfgang Ritter von. (Born: 
Munich, Germany, 19 July 1803; DIED: Munich, 
Germany, 11 November 1882) German mineralogist & 
poet. 

From 1820 to 1823, Kobell studied chemistry and 
mineralogy at the University of Landshut. In 1826 he 
was appointed professor of mineralogy at the University 
of Munich. There he introduced new methods of mineral 
analysis, and in 1855 invented the stauroscope for studying 
the optical properties of crystals. Sometime before January 
1839 he invented a process for fixing images of the camera 
obscura on paper coated with chloride of silver which led 
to the development of photography. Kobell described many 
new mineral species. But today, he is best remembered as

in mineralogy, and it gives detailed descriptions of 



the characteristics used to distinguish minerals from 
one another. Emphasis is placed on the physical

hardness, color, luster, etc. The section on descriptive 
mineralogy arranges the species according to the Mohs 
system of classification.

etc. and chemical makeup, such as behavior before the 
blowpipe, reactions to acids, etc. Many students in 
the universities of Germany and abroad faithfully used 
these tables in their mineral species determination. As 
an indicator of the text's usefulness, it went through 
17 German editions and was translated into French, 
Swedish, English, Spanish and Russian [see below].

Oebbeke's Stewardship 

In 1882 after the death of Kobell, authorship of the Tafeln 
transferred to Konrad Oebbeke. Oebbeke [1853-1 Febr. 
1932] was professor of mineralogy and geology at the 
Technical High School of Munich from 1895 to 1927. He was 
a competent mineralogist who continued to update the text 
writing the final six editions until the last issue appeared 
in 1921.

RARE. Kobell's enlargement of Berzelius' system 
which classified minerals according to their chemical 
composition. In this important work, Kobell expands 
the chemical analyses of minerals in new directions. 
It is based upon the newest discoveries in mineralogy, 
especially the work carried on by THOMAS THOMSON in 
Outlines of Mineralogy, Geology and Mineral Analysis 
(2 vols., London, 1836), as well as Kobell's own 
researches. He utilizes the theories of Naumann in 
crystallization. He ignores species about which their 
chemical composition is not known.

VERY SCARCE. An attempt to set mineralogical 
nomenclature into a common system. The author 
divides the subject into names derived from: 1. 
Greek and German mythology, 2. mineralogists and 
friends of mineralogy, 3. localities, 4. crystallization 
and structure, 5. color, 6. physical properties such 
as hardness, specific gravity, luster, etc., 7. chemical 
composition and reaction, 8. peculiarities, uses or 
allusions and 9. unknown or questionable origin. After 
discussing the importance of a universal nomenclature 
for different countries, Kobell gives several rules for 
naming minerals. For example, names derived from 
persons or localities should be written according to their 
original orthography, and not altered for each different 
language. Greek should be preferred over Latin, and the 
first name given a species should be preserved only when 
it adheres to these principles. The author commanded 
great authority in mineralogy, and many of the species 
names he suggested or endorsed are still in use today.

VERY SCARCE. Among the best histories of 
mineralogy is Kobell's treatment of its progress from 
1650 to 1860. The book is divided into two parts. 
The first of these is divided into three sections. The 
first section, covering the years 1650 to 1750, includes 
the period when mineralogy was first beginning to 
emerge as a true scientific discipline; the second 
section, extending from 1750 to 1800, examines the 
advances in chemistry, physics and crystallography that 
altered the course of mineralogy; the third section 
describes the years from 1800 to 1860 when methods 
of modern scientific investigation were applied. In 
each of these sections the author examines separately 
the physical, chemical, and systematic divisions of the 
science. In the final section, 1800 to 1860, there 
are further subdivisions into crystallography, optics, 
electricity, hardness, specific gravity, nomenclature, and 
magnetism. The second half of the book chronicles the 
history of about 200 individual mineral species. For 
each mineral listed, the time, the story of its discovery, 
together with many additional details, are given. An 
index to the described mineral species is included at 
the end; however, the book, published as number two 
of a 24 volume series about the history of science, was 
probably rushed into publication, which would explain 
why no comprehensive index to the history section is 
included.

KOKSHAROV 



Koksharov was born into a family of mine engineers. 
Hence he was educated at St. Petersburg Military School of 
Mines (today the St. Petersburg Mining Institute), 1830-40. 
Being the outstanding student, he selected to accompany 
Murchison and De Verneuil, and afterwards De Keyserling 
in their extensive geological surveys of the Russian empire, 
1840-41. From these travels Koksharov became interested 
in mineralogy, and most particularly Russian species. 
Traveling extensively throughout Europe, he made the 
acquaintance of many distinguished mineralogists, notably 
C.S. WEISS and G. ROSE in Germany and W.H. MILLER in 
England. Koksharov had a distinguished career, becoming 
director of the Imperial Mineralogical Society of St. 
Petersburg, 1865-92 and director of the St. Petersburg 
Mining Institute of Mines, 1872-81. He also held 

membership in some sixty Russian and foreign scientific 
societies. Koksharov's private collection of minerals 

consisting of about 3,250 specimens and particularly rich 
in Siberian species, was purchased by the British Museum 
of Natural History in 1865.

The bibliography of this Russian edition is difficult 
because of the rarity of the work. Contrary to what 
Sinkankas (1993) states this Russian edition did not 
exceed volume five as a separate publication, and 
contrary to what Grigor'ev &c Shafranovskii (1949) 
state volume six did not appear as a separate volume. 
Instead it made an appearance as an article in the 
Gornoi Zhurnal. In addtion the plates are numbered I- 
LXXVII. In the copy examined, plates LXXV-LXXVII 
were bound in at the end of volume five and not included 
in the Atlas proper. Page SIZE: 225 x 148 mm.

VERY RARE. This is perhaps the finest 

topographical mineralogy published in the nineteenth 
century and certainly one of the most important 
to ever appear. Koksharov was a pioneer of a 
new progressive line of thought concerning descriptive 
mineralogy. He firmly believed that substituting 
accurate crystallographic values, chemical analysis and 
physical studies for the simple mineral descriptions used 
until that time, would greatly advance mineralogical 
studies. This is the method he used in this work, 
still the best reference for studing crystallized Russian 
minerals. 

Originally, the text for these volumes appeared in 
Russian as a series of articles published in the Gornoi 
Zhurnal. Each article dealt with a single mineral species 
and included meticulous notes on associations and 
crystal forms. The descriptions give all the pertinent 
information, including listings of all the known Russian 
localities. There are also long lists of exterior angles 
all meticulously measured with a reflecting goniometer 
by the author. Today, these measurements are still 
considered to be extremely reliable. Complementing 
the measurements are exquisite crystal illustrations 
in orthorhombic projection, all drawn by Koksharov. 
The crystal drawings are seemingly always complete, 
perfect and extremely complex. After enough articles 
had appeared, they were collected together to form 
individual volumes of Materiafy dlia Mineralogii Rossii. 
A consequence of this procedure is, however, that there 
is no apperent order of presentation within the compiled 
volumes. 

This work appeared sirniltaneously in two editions. 
The Russian edition as described is very rare in 
complete sets, even within Russia. Perhaps as an 
indication of a lack of interest in the continuation of 
the Russian edition, it ceased publication as separate 
volumes with number five. However, the German 
edition, described in the next entry, had greater 
popularity outside Russia, and continued publication 
for an another twenty years and comprises an additional 
six volumes.

PLATES: The plates of the atlas are numbered I-

with their faces labelled. Most of the plates are unsigned; 
however, those few that are not blank are signed either 
C. Kray, A. Münster or Jvanson sculp. Plates LXXXIII— 
LXXXVII are signed in Cyrillic type. 

RARE. Translation by Koksharov of Materiaiy dlia 
Mineralogii Rossii (6 vols., St. Petersburg, 1852-70). This 
German edition, typically lagged behind the Russian 
original by about a year on each volume. However, 
beginning with volume seven the text was translated 
directly from the articles appearing in the Gornoi Zhurnal. 
This translation contains the same illustrations and plates 
as the original, and is the most commonly seen edition 
outside of Russia, and perhaps may have had a larger 
edition. Because publication of this edition was spread over 
nearly forty years, this work is extremely rare in complete 
copies.

VERY SCARCE. No more published. Issued 
as the first part of a proposed series of lessons 
in general mineralogy, the present volume examines 
crystallography, by illustrating the subject with 
numerous figures, reproduced from the authors great 
Materialien zur Mineralogie Russlands (11 vols., 
St. Petersburg, 1853-91), and simple, thorough 
explanations. The chapter on the irregularities of 
crystals is particularly complete and is made up largely 
of the results of his own crystallographic researches. 
It contains extended tables of measurements of a 
considerable number of species; and is illustrated by 
many woodcuts.

Kolenati was a medical doctor, who first taught 
botany at the University of Prague. From 1842 to 1846 he 
was assistant professor of zoology at the University of St. 
Petersburg, after which he returned to Prague and became 
a privatdocent at the University in pharmacy, zoology, 
botany and crystallography. In 1849 he was appointed 
ordinary professor zoology, botany, mineralogy, geology, 
and paleontology at the Polytechnic Institute of Brunn.

KONIG, Emanuel. (BORN: Basel, Switzerland, 1 
November 1658; DlED: Basel, Basel-Stadt, Switzerland, 
30 July 1731) Swiss physician. 

Until 1674, he attended the Gymnasium at Basel. 
1677, received his M.A. from the University of Basel. 1682, 
received his M.D. from the University of Basel. 

He travelled for a number of years in France and 
Italy. 1695-1703, professor of Greek, University of Basel. 
1703-1711, professor of natural philosophy, University 
of Basel. 1711-, professor of theoretical medicine, 

University of Basel. Those academic positions were not 
obtained without patronage. Through the efforts of 
his friend Georg Wolfgang Wedel, professor of medicine 
at Jena, he was admitted into the Accademia Naturae 
Curiosorum. 1682, he became a member of the Accademia 
Naturae Curiosorum (after 1687, the Accademia Caesarae 
Leopoldina), taking the name "Avicenna."

VERY SCARCE. The author at his own 

press published works on the three kingdoms of 
nature. Regnum Minerale deals first with the names. 



differences, generation, nutrition and augmentation of 
minerals and metals and whether they have organs. 
The second part describes the different metals: gold 
(including fulminating gold), silver, iron, copper, tin, 
lead, mercury, and antimony. He recognizes cinnabar in 
both natural and artificial. There are brief sections on 
bismuth, orpiment, cadmia, realgar, and zinc. Section 
three describes stones including gems, the magnet, 
lapis lazuli, pyrites, gypsum, the Bologna stone, and 
coral. Part four is on the middle salts and includes 
the preparation of acids. It deals with common 
salt, nitre, vitriols, alums, sal armoniac, etc. Other 
sections describe sulfur, amber, asphalt, ambergris and 
camphor, concluding with medicinal earths and an 
appendix on mineral waters.

KONRAD VON MEGENBERG. (Born: Megenburg 

(or Mainberg), near Schweinfurt, Germany, 2 February 
1309; DlED: Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany, 14 April 
1374) German scientist, theologian & historian. 

The dates of birth and death are not absolutely 
certain, and Konrad himself calls his native place 
Megenberg. His father was probably a bailiff or overseer 
in the old castle of Mainberg. Conrad studied liberal arts 
in Erfurt, and then went to Paris, where he became a 
magister and studied and taught theology and philosophy. 
He remained in Paris from 1329 to 1337, then he went to 
Vienna where he was director of the St. Stephan School. 
In 1342, he transvered to Ratisbon (Regensburg), where 
he became a parish priest, then a canon of the cathedral.

Editio PRINCEPS. Extremely rare. Printed at 
the Augsburg press of Johann Bämler [see note below]. 
Konrad composed this work in 1349-51 as a free 
translation of the De Natura. Rerum of Thomas of 
Cantimpré, althought Konrad thought the source text 
to be the product of Albertus Magnus' youth. It was 
apparently a popular early book around Augsburg, the 
city where all the incunabula editions were published. 
The Latin text is reordered somewhat in this German 
version, with some original material added. 

Das Buch der Natur is divided as follows: 
I. Von dem Menschen in seiner gemainen Nature, 
50 chapters, describes human anatomy, physiology 
and interpretation of character from physical signs 
and dreams. II. Von den Himeln und von den 
siben Planeten, 33 chapters, descibes astronomy and 
meterology. III. Von den Tiern in ainer Gemain 
describes animals in general, including 69 chapters on 
quadrepeds, 72 on birds, 20 on the creatures of the sea 
(e.g., crocidile, seal, dolphin, hippopotamus, sirens), 29 
on fishes, 37 on snakes, 31 on "worms" (i.e., insects, 
toads, frogs, snails, leeches, spiders, earthworms). IV. 
Von den Paumen, 84 chapters, describes trees. V. 
Von den Kräutern, 89 chapters, describes plants and 
herbs. VI. Von den edlen Stainen, 86 chapters, describes 
precious stones. VII. Von dem Gesrnaid, 10 chapters, 
on various metals, including gold, silver, Gunderfai 
(electrum), copper, tin, lead, and iron, quicksilver, 
orpiment, and sulphur. VIII. Von den wunderleichen 
Prunnen, describes the wonderful properties of streams 
and waters and with human monstrosities. At the 
beginning of each book is an introduction describing 
the various classes. 

Johann Bämler. (BORN: ; DIED: ) German printer. 
Bämler is known to have been in Rome at Christmas of 
1450. He is also known as a scribe and rubicator as early 
as 1453 [Gutenberg- Jahrbuch, 1928, pp. 105 &c 106]. His 
earliest book with a precise date was completed on the 22 
April 1472 and his last was finished on the 13 April 1495.

History 



Kopp 



Kopp was a pupil of Leopold Gmelin [1788-1853] 
and Justus Liebig [1803-1873]. He became professor of 
chemistry at Giessen and Heidelberg in 1863. He is 
best remembered for his Geschichte der Chemie (4 vols., 
Braunschweig, 1843-7). In his researches, Kopp worked 
to deduce a relationship between the physical properties, 
the molecular weights and the chemical composition of 
compounds. In 1849, with Liebig, he founded the 

important journal, Jahresbericht der Chemie.

VERY SCARCE. Kopp, a German chemist at 
the University of Heidelberg, is best known for his 
work on physical chemistry and crystallography and 
publications on the history of chemistry. Prepared as a 
result of teaching courses in crystallography Kopp was 
able to prepare his Einleitung in die Krystallographie 
(Introduction to Crystallography), a well-known text 
on this subject. It is an introductory mathematical 
treatise of crystallography for students of chemistry and 
mineralogy and is now considered a classic work on 
the subject. The first section is an introduction that 
discusses the basics of crystallography, including axes, 
systems, crystal physics and crystal chemistry. Each 
of the seven crystal systems is then described in great 
detail. Kopp gives the description and measurement of 
the angles of a large number of natural and artificial 
crystals. The atlas includes several plates, especially 
noted for their cut-out folding crystal models, which 
were used to craft examples of crystals.

VERY SCARCE. A multlingual dictionary of 
mineralogy and related subjects principally for Latin, 
Hungarian, and German. A section at the end provides 
a dictionary for mineralogy in the English, Italian, 
Russian, Swedish and Danish languages. The work is 
divided into 4 sections. The first lists the terms in 
Latin with their Hungarian and German equivalents. 
The second lists the terms in Hungarian followed by 
Latin and German, while the third lists the words in 
German followed by Latin and Hungarian. The fourth 
section then provides a mineralogical lexicon to Latin 
for the English, Italian, Russian, Swedish and Danish 
languages.

History 



Krantz 



Krantz studied "Geognosie" at the Freiberg Berga- 
kademie earning a Ph.D. In 1833, he founded in Freiberg 
the "Mineralien-Geschäft von Krantz" (Krantz' Mineral 
Shop). In 1837, he moved the firm to Berlin, and in 1850, 
he reestablished the company in Bonn, changing its name 
to "Rheinisches Mineralien Comptoir." In 1841, Krantz 
made the first geological map of Elba, Italy, and in 1866, 
he purchased the mineral business of the Paris dealer, Sae- 
mann. By July 1847 Krantz was able to claim in an adver- 
tising brochure that he had 750 different mineral species 
in stock with between 2500 and 3000 varieties and locali- 
ties represented. In addition, various rock types and fossils 
could also be suppled. Krantz' personal mineral collection 
of about 14,000 specimens was acquired by the University 
of Bonn in 1872. 

The Krantz mineral dealing firm survives to the cur- 
rent time. After the founder Adam August died in 1872, 
his son-in-law, Captain Theodor Hoffmann managed the 
company for 16 years, but he knew nothing of mineralogy. 
In 1888, the son of the founder, the mineral dealer and 
crystallographer FRIEDRICH LUDWIG ROBERT KRANTZ, took 
over management of the firm. Under his leadership the 
firm of Krantz became famous worldwide. He died in 1926. 
His wife Olga and nephew Fritz took over the business. 
Olga operated the firm through World War II by trading 
goods for specimens. Fur example, sewing material for fos- 
sil cronoids. The nephew, Fritz Krantz, managed the firm 
from 1948 until 1974. His interests were primarily palaeon- 
to logical. His daughter, Renate Krantz, who had a degree 
in geology, managed the firm from 1974 until her death in 
1995. In turn her daughter, Ursula Müller-Krantz manages 
the firm to the present time.

SCARCE. This text is designed for the beginner and 
is aimed to present the essential factors of geometrical 
crystallography, from the standpoint of symmetry. 
Each of the thirty-two possible classes of symmetry are 
described, even though several of the classes have never 
been observed in the mineral kingdom. No treatment on 
the projection or measurement of crystals is given, and 
no theories of structural crystallography are provided. 
However, the text is heavily illustrated to enforce points 
described in the text. Overall this is one of the best 
beginner texts ever published in crystallography.

SCARCE. An excellent and popular textbook 
of mineralogical science that includes nuggets of 
historical perspective. Illustrations, particularly in 
the crystallography section show line drawings and 
photographic reproductions of wooden crystal models 
to depict the various crystal forms. A flaw in the text is 
the nonexistence of any bibliography or citation to older 
literature, which distinguished the textbook of Edward 
Dana. 

One of the best textbooks in English. Treats 
crystallography, properties, polarizing microscope 
techniques, genesis, blowpiping, descriptions, precious

Halberstadt. In 1850 he migrated to the United States 
and in November 1852 reached Victoria, Australian. He 
worked in various goldfields until 1857 when he went on an 
expedition to the Lower Murray and Darling Rivers. He 
built a large natural history collection and was employed 
by the National Museum, Melbourne, to catalogue it. He 
eventually was appointed curator of the museum. Theft of 
several gold specimens in 1873 led to his dismissal, however. 
Subsequent legal action, forced Krefft into bankruptcy.

VERY SCARCE. The book is divided into 

two parts. Part I (pp. 1-197) is devoted to 

morphologic and descriptive crystallography including 
a chapter describing the measurement of crystals 
(pp. 192-197). Krejci uses the old Czech names 
for crystallographic groups (e.g. "stejnoklonná" = 
hexagonal, while the more recent Czech name is 
"hexagonální" or "esterecná"). Part II (pp. 198-264) 
is devoted to a history of crystallography from ancient

KREUTZ, Stefan. (BORN: Lwow, Poland, 6 June 
1883; DIED: Krakow, Poland, September 1941) Polish 
mineralogist, crystallographer & petrologist. 

Kreutz was the son of Szczçsny Kreutz, who had been 
professor of mineralogy at the University of Krakow. He 
was educated at the University of Vienna under F. Becke, 
and in 1908 he worked under H.A. MlERS on the parallel 
growth of crystals. Afterwards, he became assistant to 
J. MOROZEWICZ professor of mineralogy at the University 



of Krakow, succeeding him in 1919. Eventually, Kreutz 
was appointed director of the Mineralogical Institute of the 
Jagiellonian University, Krakow. His research was related 
to the relationship between optical properties and chemical 
composition, twinned crystals, and the amphibole group. 
He also wrote on Polish minerals and rocks. In 1941, under 
the German occupation of Poland, Kreutz with the other 
professors of the University was executed.

EXTREMELY RARE. In a work meant to be useful 
to mineral collectors, Krikende classifies the minerals 
and fossils according to Vogel's system as outlined in 
Practisches Mineralsystem (Leipzig, 1762). The species 
are arranged into classes and their subdivisions, and are 
printed in rows on one side of every page, so that they 
could be cut apart and affixed to the specimens. At the

Kunckel's father was a master glassmaker (as the 
family had been for a couple of centuries) and some kind 
of chemical analyst and alchemist in the service of duke 
Friederich of Holstein. He had no university education. He 
was taught glassmaking and the chemistry of glassmaking 
by his father and other glassworkers. He learned the 
'apothecary's art' in Rendsburg, and some more advanced 
chemistry of glass maunfacturing later in Dresden.

Rare. A collected edition of the author's 

alchemical and chemical works compiled after his death 
by J.C. Engelleder, a physician who had a practice 
in Hamburg. It is a famous chemical handbook, 
perhaps the most important work in the German 
school of the second half of the the seventeenth 



century. Partington (2, 361-77) gives a bibliographical 
account with commentary to the many references to the 
discoveries contained in this book, including as it does

KUNDMANN 



KUNDMANN, Johann Christian. (Born: Breslau, 
Germany, 26 October 1684; DIED: Breslau, Germany, 
11 May 1751) German physician. 

Kundmann studied medicine and mathematics at 
the Universities of Frankfurt an der Oder and at Halle. 
Afterward he made an extensive scientific excursion 
throughout Germany and Holland. In 1708, he established 
a medical practice in Breslau, and eventually was named a 
medical official for the city of Breslau. He was among the 
first to collect comprehensive medical statistics of births 
and causes of death. He held membership in the Leopoldino 
Academiae.

KUNZ 



KUNZ, George Frederick. (Born: New York City, 
New York, U.S.A., 29 September 1856; DlED: New 
York City, New York, U.S.A., 29 June 1932) American 
gemologist. 

Kunz was the son of immigrant parents. At the 
age of ten his family moved to Hoboken, New Jersey, 
where he attended the public schools. Being poor, he 
was unable to afford college, however, Kunz taught himself 
enough mineralogy that he was able to secure in 1879 a 
position at the famous jewelry manufacturer, Tiffany &c 
Company. He remained with the firm until his death, 
rising to vice president and finally trustee. He was highly 
successful in locating American sources of gems to be used 
in Tiffany's jewelry designs, and this brought him the 
honorary position of special agent of precious stones for the 
United States Geological Survey (1883 to 1909). Among 
many honors, Kunz was a founder and president of the 
New York Mineralogical Club. In 1903, a pink variety of 
the gem mineral spodumene was named "Kunzite" in his 
honor.

VERY SCARCE. A popular author on all aspects 
of gemology, this is Kunz's first major book and is 
devoted to a through description of North American 
gemstones. The volume contains information on 
gemstones and their locations in North America that 
Kunz had gathered from correspondents located all 
over the continent. These were the same people 
that supplied local information for inclusion in Kunz's 
annual contribution to the Minerai Resources of the 
U.S., for which Kunz wrote the "precious stones" 
chapters for many years. In addition, being a vice 
president of the famous jewelry firm of Tiffany &¿ 
Co. Kunz actively encouraged the exploitation of 
gem deposits and stood ready to purchase recovered 
material to financially assist such ventures. While much 
of the contained information has been augmented or 
improved upon in intervening years, the unique nature 
and value of this work is unquestioned and it is still 
of value today. The handsome colored lithographic 
plates included in this book together with those found in 
Hamlin's tourmaline monographs are among the finest 
chromolithographie plates of minerals ever produced in 
the United States.

VERY SCARCE. Kurr prepared this work as 
both a text book and reference work to mineralogy. 
It begins by defining the purpose and use of 
the science and giving reasons why it should be 
studied. The first part describes Oryktognosie or the 
physical and chemical characters of minerals, including 
crystallography, fracture, cleavage, hardness, specific 
weight, transparency, color, etc. This is followed by 
a systematic mineralogy that divides the species into: 
combustible minerals that don't contain metals, which 
are then divided by organic versus inorganic origins, 
minerals that contain "light" metals, including the 
precious stones, epidote, tourmaline, etc., and minerals 
that contain "dark" metals, including rutile, tantalite, 
wolframite, zincite, etc. A long section describing 
Geognosie follows the desciptive mineralogy. An index 
concludes the work.

figs). Tab XXI. Minerals containing cadnium, bismuth, 
uranium, titanium, tantalaum, tungsten (24 figs). Tab 
XXII. Minerals containing molybdium, chrome, antimony, 
arsenic (20 figs). 

SCARCE. This finely illustrated volume is divided 
into two sections. The first is the introduction which 
covers the forms of minerals and crystals, hardness, 
specific gravity, properties dependent on light and color, 
electricity, magnetism, and heat, chemical relations and 
a table of chemical elements. The remainder of the 
text is devoted to special or descriptive mineralogy. 
Here the various species and mineral groups are 
described. These include precious stones, hornblende or 
augite minerals, felspathic minerals, zeolithic minerals, 
micaceous minerals, calcareous minerals, compounds of 
baryta, compounds of strontia, salts of potash, salts of 
soda, salts of magnesia, salts of ammonia, combustible 
minerals, and metallic minerals or ores. 

The hand-colored plates, prepared for this first 
edition, were sold by the publisher to other distribution 
houses throughout Europe. These were used to issue 
translations of this popular "coffee-table" book in 
English (1859) and French (1859). A decade later, after 
chromolithography had become available to produce 
realistic colored illustrations by a cheaper method, the 
publisher had the plates redone. These new plates 
are easily identifiable with the absence of the word 
"Tab." from the top of each plate. The publisher 
then issued many subsequent editions and variants of 
the basic work in German. These included several 
editions prepared by ADOLF KENNGOTT after Kurr's 
death. In addition, the chromolithographs were sold 
by the publisher to firms in other countries, where 
the rather simple text was translated into the native 
language, issued with the German plates and a new 
mineralogical work published. As a result, a multitude 
of translations, some with multiple editions appeared 
causing a bibliographical knot. The following entries 
will hopefully provide guidance on the known editions.

La Taille studied the humanities in Paris under Muret 
and law at Orleans. He was a Huguenot, but later 
converted to a mild Catholicism. Wounded in a military 
action in 1570, he retired to his estate at Bondaroy. There 
he began his writing career with political pamplets. Today, 
he is remembered for his dramas and comedies.

Rare. This very early topographical study 
contains mostly descriptions and good woodcut 
illustrations of the fossils and minerals discovered by 
the author in the area around Hildesheim, Germany 
and then held in his personal collection. The text 
illustrations and the folding plates figure various objects 
from this collection, including crinoid stems, crystals, 
and an Egyptian sarcophagus. Gatterer notes this is 
the first use of now obsolete term "Oryktographia" 
that was used through out the eighteenth century as 
a synonym for mineralogy. It is invoked in Greek on 
the title page as "0РУКТ0ГРАФ1А" . This is also the 
first book describing the mineral species found within 
a single geographical region and therefore it may be 
considered the first topographical mineralogy (at least 
the compiler knows of no other earlier work!).

VERY SCARCE. Based on several previous French 
mineralogists as well as Lacroix's own researches, this 
series concerning France and its colonies is among the 
best of topographical mineralogies. In each volume after 
the introduction, the individual minerals are arranged 
according to a chemical classification. Through Lacroix 
personal researches he was able to add a great many 
new mineral species to those already known.

SCARCE. With the aid of the provincial governor, 
General Galliéni, Lacroix was able to arrange the 
methodical collection of specimens throughout locations 
in the island of Madagascar by using civil servants, 
military chiefs, correspondents of the Natural History 
Museum in Paris, etc. 

A classic work in the category of regional 
mineralogies is this set devoted to the Island of 
Madagascar. The work consists of six parts. The 
first of these (vol. 1, pp. 1-148) describes the geology 
and geography of Madagascar. The second (vol. 1, 
pp. 149-604) is a descriptive mineralogy of the island 
which lists the 195 species known to occur, together 
with information on occurrences, analyses and optical 
determinations. Included in this section are 27 
photographic plates, 504 crystal drawings and a large 
map of the island. The third part treats economic 
mineralogy (vol. 2, pp. 1-218). Described here are 
all substances that are mined on the island for profit, 
including precious metals, common metals, graphite, 
salt, mica, etc. Twenty— three of the plates as well 
as a number of sketch maps serve as illustrations. 
Lithology is covered in the fourth part (vol. 2, pp. 219- 



665). It includes descriptions of intrusives crystalline 
massif, the schistose rocks, as well as the pegmatites. 
A number of plates illustrate thin sections of the rocks. 
Volume three continues and concludes the fourth part, 
devoting pages 1-90 to Lithology. The alteration of the 
rocks to latérite and red earth is described in part five 
(vol. 3, pp. 91-149), and part six (vol. 3, pp. 150-294) 
considers the mutual relationships of the rocks, citing 
comparisons with similar rocks in other parts of the 
world. Appendices to all three volumes occur after part 
six on pages 295-334. This is followed by a bibliography 
(pp. 335-350), and geographic and subject indices (pp. 
351-431), which conclude the volume.

appears the descriptor, "A. Lacroix, T. 1. [-4.] — Figures 
de savants. On the upper right hand corner appears 
the "PI." number. Each plate has a description at the 
bottom. Each plate shows either a portrait or a facsimile 
of manuscript writing, usually in the form of a letter. 

VERY SCARCE. An amazing compilation of 

biographies of French scientists, who turn out to be 
mostly naturalists, geologists and mineralogists. The 
articles are long, in-depth reviews of the life and work 
of the subject, which is usually richly illustrated with 
portraits and examples of their correspondence and 
signatures. The last two volumes, which deal with 
scientists who worked in French colonies around the 
world, appear to be especially difficult to acquire. 
Among the people covered are Georges Cuvier, Marcelin 
Berthelot, Déodat Dolomieu, Michel Adanson, and 
Louis Pasteur.

Lampadius 

April 1842) German chemist & pharmacist. 

In 1785, Lampadius was apprenticed to a Göttingen 
apothecary, but his interest in natural history caused him 
to enroll in the local University in 1791. In 1795, on the 
death of C.E. Gellert, he was named professor of chemistry 
at the Freiberg Bergakademie. He traveled a great deal, 
including a lengthy trip to Russia.

8°: [i]-viii, [l]-362, [2] p., one folding plate. 

Rare. Gives details of the equipment necessary 
for the analysis of minerals, as well as instructions for 
their use. It also describes various analytical methods, 
giving a list of reagents. The analysis of individual 
minerals is then described. 

Lampadius' methods are generally as good as 
Klaproth's, and there are portions of the book that 
foreshadow textbooks of a later period. For example, 
it contains a detailed list of equipment and apparatus 
required for analysis, as well as instructions for their 
use. In the introduction a long passage describes the 
preparation of the necessary reagents, and methods 
for testing their purity. Szabadváry (1966) says 
these "descriptions are the earliest record of standard 
methods used for testing the purity of analytical grade 
reagents and in many cases are very similar to present 
day methods."

than pseudomorphs, the subject of this book. The text 
begins with a short introduction that clearly defines 
pseudomorphs. The work is then divided into two 
large parts. The first covers mineral pseudomorphs 
and contains sections on mineral casts (pp. 8—24) and 
mineral metamorphosis through chemical exchange (pp. 
25-245). The second part (pp. 246-343) describes the 
chemical transformation that occurs to create petrified 
wood and fossilized bones and plants. Incorporated 
within the body of the text are all references to 
pseudomorphs that the author discovered conducting 
a systematic review of both German and foreign 
mineralogical literature.

RARE. One of the earliest studies of Swiss 
mineralogy and paleontology, this work describes the 
figured stones, minerals and fossils of the country. 
Lang was an aggressive collector who amassed a 
large collection of natural history objects found 
in his native land. These formed his "Museum 
Lucernense Langianum" which included preserved 
plants, animals and birds, as well as a large component 
of mineralogical objects, t 1 ! In this work Lang provides 
original descriptions of many of them. 

For this work, Lang choose his best specimens for

illustration. Lang was a proponent of the formation 
of fossils within the rocks. He believed that the fossils 
had developed from moist seed-bearing vapors which 
had risen from the seas and entered into the earth's 
strata and strongly argued against the diluvialists that 
fossils were the result of the " Great Flood" . Lang's 
fossil descriptions and theories were used by Beringer in 
his ill-fated 1726 work "Lithographie Wurceburgensis" . 
The beautifully engraved title frontispiece page drawn 
by the artist Besutius and engraved by Blancus shows 
a collection of mineral and fossil cabinets. The plates 
illustrate minerals, fossil vertebrates and invertebrates, 
and fossil plants. 

Hoover 505; Ward &c Carozzi 1321. A very scarce 
work on the minerals and fossils of Switzerland. In 
1735 a small supplement with 10 pages and 1 plate 
was published. Lang was one of the last authors 
who believed in the direct origin of the fossils in the 
rocks and particularly argued against the conception 
of the diluvialists that fossils were animals destroyed 
by the Flood. "Lang's fossil descriptions were used 
and his theories discussed by Beringer, and Lang is 
said to have been a colleague of Scheuchzer. Yet the 
closeness of the relationship with Scheuchzer is open to 
question since the latter was a diluvialist" (D. S. B. VIII, 
p. 4). The beautifully engraved frontispiece drawn by 
Ambrosius Besutius and engraved by Paulus Blancus 
shows a geological cabinet, containing minerals and 
fossils. "The physician and senator Karl Lang (1670- 
1741) established his 'Museum Lucernense Langianum', 
in Lucerne; it contained mostly minerals and fossils. In 
1858 it was purchased by the Natural History Museum 
of Lucerne" (Wilson. The History of Mineral Collecting 
p. 119). The plates show minerals, fossil plants, fishes, 
a human skeleton, and shells. A good copy. 

= Ward and Carozzi, 1321; Nissen ZBI, 2375. 
A very rare work on the fossils of Switzerland with 
the beautifully engraved frontisp. showing a mineral 
Cabinet, drawn by A. Besutius and engraved by Blanus. 
The plates depict minerals, fossils, plants, fishes and 
mainly shells and one plate gives a view of the famous 
Mons Pilatus by Melchior Füessli which was one of the 
first mountains to be described in a mineralogical way. 
See also DSB vol.8 p.4. 

Notes: [1] Wilson (1994): The collection was 
acquired by the Natural History of Lucern (which Lang 
founded) in 1858.

effects of Lange after his death. After the introduction 
the text is divided into three parts. The first 
covers the physical and chemical aspects of mineralogy. 
Topics covered include the principals by which minerals 
form, earths, stones, salts, coal, sulfur compounds, 
semimetals, arsenic, zinc, bismuth, cobalt, antimony, 
mercury, whole metals, lead, tin, iron, copper, silver, 
gold, saltpeter, etc. The second part covers mechanical 
mineralogy and includes descriptions metal deposits 
and the formation of deposits and methods of mining. 
A supplement in five chapters completes this section. 
Finally, the third part covers metallurgy and assaying, 
with descriptions of metal reduction and purification.

LAPPARENT, Albert-Auguste Cochon de. (Born: 
Bourges, France, 30 December 1839; DIED: Paris, 
France, 4 May 1908) French geologist & mineralogist. 

From 1858 to 1860, Lapparent studied at the Ecole 
Polytechnique, becoming an engineer in the Corps of 
Mines, and participating in drawing up a geological map 
of France. In 1875, he was appointed professor of geology 
and mineralogy at the Catholic Institute in Paris, where 
he remained. Lapparent was elected president of the 
French Geological Society in 1880. For his work Lapparent 
recieved many honors and was among others awarded a 
honory doctorate by Cambridge University.

first time to the theory of solids. 

After a short introduction, the text is divided into 
three major sections: Geometrical Crystallography (p. 



13-184), Physical Crystallography (p. 185-296), and the

VERY SCARCE. A late nineteenth century French 
textbook that gives much useful information on the 
crystallography and properties of minerals, including a 
long descriptive mineralogy in a small volume. It is 
well illustrated with the inclusion of 335 mostly crystal 
diagrams that accompany the mineral descriptions. At 
the conclusion is a long lexicon of the species names and 
varieties mentioned in the text.

of the Harzgebirge in Germany contain much on the 
natural history of the region including its mineralogy. 

Apparently two issues of this work exist. One that 
was printed for the subscribers and another (somewhat 
later?) issues printed for the general book trade.

LAURENT, Auguste. (Born: 1807; Died: 1853) 
French chemist & crystallographer. 

French chemist who, as a student of Dumas was 
given the responsibility of determining the problems with 
the candles in the French King's 1833 soiree. He braved 
Berzelius's criticism and demonstrated that hydrogen was 
being replaced by oppositely changed chlorine atoms, 
evolving hydrogen chloride gas. This contradicted 

Berzelius's radical theory, which forbid the replacement of 
an electronegative element with a more electropositive one, 
and brought him ridicule from the established chemical 
community. Laurent used ideas from crystallography 
to represent organic compounds by three-dimensional 
structures. However, he believed these structures to be 
merely symbolic. He collaborated in experiments with 
Gerhardt, and further developed the type theory proposed 
by Durnas. 

French organic chemist. He devised a systematic 
nomenclature for organic chemistry. His studies on 

naphthalene and its chlorination products led him to 
propose a nucleus theory that foreshadowed modern 
structural chemistry; he proposed that the structural 
grouping of atoms within molecules determined how the 
molecules combined in organic reactions. This theory 
conflicted with the then current notion that the product of 
organic reactions depended solely on the electrical charge 
of the atoms involved. His theory greatly influenced the 
theory of types proposed by J. B. Dumas and C. F. 
Gerhardt.

St. Petersburg academician-historian A. L. von Schlözer 
a correspondent of Laxmann's, with the help of J.L. 
Beckmann who was a close friend of Laxmann. The 
book included several of Laxmann's letters from Siberia 
and a letter from Linneaus to him. Laxmann had 
written them to Schlözer to describe his discoveries but 
they were never intended for publication. Although 
the volume received good reviews it caused Laxmann 
to abandon his intended book Sibirische Nebenstunden, 
which was never published.

LEBLANC, Nicolas. (BORN: Issoudun, France, 1742; 
DIED: St. Denis, France, 10 January 1806) French 
chemist. 

French chimist which developed a process preparation 
of the sodium carbonate which bears its name. 

E N 1780, Nicolas Leblanc became surgeon on behalf 
of the duke of Orleans. It is in 1786, thanks to its 
work on the crystallization, which it became famous. In 
1789, it discovered a method of preparation of the sodium 
carbonate (soda), and allowed the development of the 
mineral chemical industry. It opened in 1791, close to 
Saint-Denis, thanks to the financial support of the duke 
of Orleans, a factory using this new process. Ruined, it 
committed suicide in Saint-Denis, in 1806. 

Leblanc became interested in the large-scale manufac- 
ture of soda because of the offer of a prize. He developed 
a process for making soda ash (sodium carbonate) from 
common salt, making possible the large-scale manufacture 
of glass, soap, paper, and other chemicals. The factory 
he set up with others was confiscated during the French 
Revolution, and he later committed suicide.

This collection was formed by Ferdinando Cospi [see 
note below], Marches di Petrioli, who was a great 
collector of natural objects as well as paintings and 
sculptures. The book documents this with inclusion 
of the works of Andrea del Sarto, Primaticcio and 
Michelangelo. The woodcuts represent various kinds of 
animals, terra cottas, arms, stones, minerals, etc. The 
large folding plate shows the interior of the museum. 
Arranged according to the theories of Aldrovandi. 

The volume is divided into five books. The first 
lists human and animal specimens, birds and monsters. 
The second covers reptiles, fish, corals, shells and fossils, 
minerals, crustaceans, and plants. The third treats 
'exotic' books and manuscripts, mathematical, scientific 
and nautical instruments, weapons, vases, funerary 
tablets and games. Book four describes medals and 
coins, while the last book classifies religious images from 
localities throughout the known world. 

The famous collections of Aldrovandi, as well as 
his library and manuscripts, were bequeathed to the city 
of Bologna. A list of these items has been incorporated 
here with the rest of the Cospi Museum. 

Ferdinando Cospi. (BORN: Bologna, Italy, 19 January 
1606; DIED: Bologna, Italy, 1686) Italian politician. Italian 
senator and purchasing agent in Bologna for the Medici 
family, Cospis large and varied collection was given to the 
senate of Bologna. It was first housed in an annex to 
Aldrovandi's museum. In 1743, a large portion was moved 
to the Instituto delle Scienze, which was incorporated into 
the Museo Civico di Bologna in 1871.

VERY RARE. Lehmann's Abhandlung von 

Phosphoris provides a short account of a broad 
variety of luminescences. It is one of his earliest 
publications and professes to give the preparation and 
uses of phosphors as well as remarks on fire and 
light and his theory of the origin of the luminescence. 
Lehmann divides the subject into natural and artificial 
luminescence, with the latter being prepared either by 
chemistry or mechanical manipulation, which Lehmann 
realized was electrical in nature. However, Harvey does 
not think his treatment was very good.

Rare. An important work on the origin of metals 
by the famous German geologist. Lehmann recognized 
that whatever might be the genetic processes which 
resulted in the appearance of metals and metallic ores, 
there were certain situations or places which were more 
favorable to their development than others. These he 
referred to as the "matrices" of the metals, stating that 
metals do neither originate in the air, as believed by 
many of the older writers, nor in animals or plants, but 
in the earth's crust, in rocks, or in fossiliferous and other 



stones.

ographies subterráneas, can benefit beginners as well as 
experienced amateurs of nature and mining. The au- 
thor does not bury the reader in the pervailing theories, 
rather he stresses physical examination and practical 
experience as the best method to obtain knowledge.

Extremely rare. No copy has been traced. 
Although the author directed this work to the use of the 
beginner, it includes many noteworthy ideas, which are 
the author's opinions rather than a reflexion of the state 
of mineralogical science. The divisions of the minerals 
are arranged not according to specific chemical tests, 
but rather after general principals reported elsewhere 
on the behavior of the various bodies in fire, water, etc.

RARE. Translated by P.H.T. baron d'Holbach 
from a number of Lehmann's published works. Each 
volume has a half-title Traités de Physique, d'Histoire 
Naturelle, De Mineralogie et de Métallurgie that 
accurately describes the variety of contents of this work. 
Volume one begins by describing mines, mountains and 
rivers in general. This is followed by a discussion of 
mineralogy (pp. 35-226) with emphasis on economic 
metals. A treatise on "moufettes" and on the formation 
of mines follows. This is followed by translations of 
seven treatises on natural history that speculate on 
the interior structure of the earth, volcanoes, mineral 
waters, natural history around Halberstadt, types of 
marbles, and copper minerals. Volume two provides 
information on the formation of metals, on mines and 
their construction, while volume three is orientated on 
geology, with discussions of the earth in general, and 
Lehmann's commentary on the theories of Woodward, 
Whiston, Burnet, Moro, etc., on mountains, and the 
relationship of metals and minerals to the mountains, 
and the causes of earthquakes.

LEHMANN, Otto. (BORN: Constance, Baden, 

Germany, 13 January 1855; DlED: Karlsruhe, Germany, 
17 June 1922) German crystallographer & physicist. 

After studying at Strasbourg, Lehmann was succes- 
sively professor of physics at the Technical High Schools 
of Aachen (1883), Dresden (1888) and Karlsruhe (1889). 
Early on, he devised a heating microscope so that poly- 
morphic modifications of crystalline substances could be 
observed at different temperatures. Liquid crystals of 
cholesteryl benzoate were discovered by F. Reinitzer in 
1888, and having a close relationship to his own work, 
Lehman did much to develop the new subject, on which 
he wrote many papers and books.

LEIBNITZ, Gottfried Wilhelm. (Born: Leipzig, 
Germany, 21 June 1646; DlED: Hannover, Germany, 14 
November 1716) German philosopher, mathematician, 
historian & Jurist. 

German philosopher, mathematician, historian and 
jurist, contemporary of Newton (1642-1727), who left 
behind no philosophical magnum opus, but who is still 
considered to be among the giant thinkers of the 17th- 
century. Leibniz believed in "pre-established harmony" 
between matter and maid, and developed a philosophy 
of Rationalism by which he attempted to reconcile the 
existence of matter with the existence of God. Bertrand 
Russel wrote that Leibniz's intellect "was highly abstract 
and logical; his greatest claim to fame is as an inventor of 
the infinitesimal calculus." 

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was born in Leipzig as the 
son of a professor of moral philosophy. He received his 
masters degree from the University of Leipzig at the age 
of 18 and his doctorate in law at Altdorf in 1667. Leibniz 
preferred a courtly to and academich career and in 1669 
he entered into the service of the elector of Mainz. Some 
years later he traveled to Paris to try to persuade Louis

Leibnitz 

XIV to expel the Turks from Kgypt in order to distract 
his attention from marching on Holland. The ploy did not 
work. 

In 1675 Leibniz made his most important scientific 
discovery, the differential and integral calculus which 
became the basis for modern mathematic. The discovery 
resulted in a controversy with Isaac Newton over whether 
he or Newton was the inventor. Nowadays it is generally 
agreed that they both discovered the basic foundations 
the calculus independently, Newton first but Leibniz's 
publication prededed that of Newton. Leibniz's system of 
notation is superior to that of Newton, and is still in use 
today. Newton's absolute space also was something Leibniz 
could not accept: "I hold space to be something merely 
relative, as time is; . . . For space denotes, in terms 
of possibility, an order to things which exist at the same 
time, considered as existing together."

Rare. A great geological classic, which was 
published by this important mathematician and 
physiologist, who accepted in his "Protogaea" the 
Cartesian view, that primitive matter has a fluid 
consistency owing to the tremendous initial heat and 
that the earth's spherical form was derived from the 
aggregation of whirling ultimate elements or "monads" 
of matter. In place of the Cartesian principle of 
momentum, Leibnitz starts from a dynamical basis 
and assumes a force which accomplished the separation 
of light from darkness or as he also expressed it the 
separation of the more " active" elements of the universe 
from the more "passive." (Zittel) The part dealing 
with mineralogy is much more practical as he became 
acquainted with the mines of the Harz in Germany and 
he gives account of the mode of occurences of metals, 
minerals and fossils in Hannover and Brunswick. 

The first description during his lifetime (1646- 
1716) was published in only 3 pages in the Acta 
Eruditorum in 1693 without the plates, and this paper 
remained in a manuscript until it was posthumously

LEIGH, Charles. (BORN: Singleton Grange, England, 
1662; DlED: 1701?) English physician & antiquarian. 

Leigh graduated with a B.A. from Oxford in 1683, 
then in 1689 he received his M.D. from Cambridge. He 
had a medical practice in London, which he later moved to 
Manchester. He also had an extensive practice throughout 
Lancashire. Leigh was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society 
in 1685, and before that organization he read many papers.

VERY SCARCE. Leigh, remembered primarily as 
a naturalist and a Fellow of the Royal Society, was a 
physician by profession. He published serveral works, 
the most important of which is a Natural History of 
Lancashire, Cheshire, and the Peak of Derbyshire" 
(Thomas). 

The text of this volume is most intriguing: it is a 
catalogue of antiquities, an archaeological survey, and, 
excuse the modern parlance, a freak show, all in one. 
One of the authors many goals is to demonstrate and 
prove, by producing artifacts and animals from far-flung 
corners of the world, that a huge flood covered the whole 
earth and dislodged hippos from the home lands, and 
planted them in the mud of Lancashire. In addition to 
the text, one is treated to illustrations of such rare and 
wonderous objects as the The devils arse and a woman 
with horns, among others.

a time, but eventually he became interested in scientific 
studies, especially mineralogy. The study of minerals 
suited Lenz, and the newly invented system of A.G. 
WERNER, opened new worlds of discovery for him. Lenz 
choose to pursue a career in the field, and consequently, 
he was made a professor of mining and mineralogy at the 
University of Jena. When the University acquired J.E.I. 
W'ALCH's mineral collection, Lenz was made its curator. 
Lenz was a founding member and driving force behind the 
SÖCIETÄT FÜR DIE GESAMMTE MINERALOGIE in Jena, which 
was the first society devoted to exclusively to mineralogical 
studies. A mineral collection he assembled for his own 
studies was purchased in 1799 by the Dutchman Marinus 
van Marum [1750-1837] and eventually incorporated into 
Teyler's Museum in Haarlem.

Lenz 



VERY SCARCE. This is a reissue of the text 
of Mineralogisches Handbuch (Hildburghausen, 1791), 
together with a new title page and preliminaries. Lenz 
was a strong advocate of Werner's doctrines and his 
Handbuch, i.e. Grundriß, is one his more elaborate 
expositions. The author makes frequent reference 
to other mineralogists, including Gerhard, Gmelin, 
Achard, Kirwan, Wallerius and Cronstedt. Lenz also 
provides synonyms, references to the relavant literature, 
and detailed notes for each mineral described.

tables.; [1 pg], Gedruckt mit Göpferdtschen Schriften." 

VERY RARE. Based on Wernerian principals, 
Mustertafeln uses the physical qualities of minerals 
to create an elaborate, early field guide to mineral 
determination. In the forward, Lenz states that these 
"Mustertafeln" or specimen tables are intended to 
help friends of mineralogy become acquainted with 
the simple minerals. This book is admirable for that 
purpose as it consists of tables divided into color, 
external form, break or facture, transparency and 
lusture, hardness and finally the name of the mineral. 
Unique to this work are the four hundred water color 
drawings of minerals that are placed in the color 
column. These figures, each about one by one inch, are 
all rendered with quality and exactness as they were 
modeled from specimens contained in Carl August's 
[see note below] mineral collection. This volume is 
undoubtedly one of the rarest colored mineralogies. In 
the forward, Lenz laments that due to the high cost of 
production, only as many examples will be published 
as there are subscribers. This list is included in the 
volume and includes the names of Goethe, von Trebra, 
and Bertuch. But based on Lenz's statement, one can 
assume that the 26 copies purchased by the subscribers 
are all that were ever produced.

Carl August. (BORN: 1757; DIED: 1828) German 

monarch. Born the eldest son of Ernst August Constantine 
[??-1758]and Anna Amalia [1739-1807], Carl became Duke 
of Saxe— Weimar at the age of one year when his father died. 
He attained the title of Grand Duke in 1815. His mother, 
who acted as his Regent until he came of age in 1775, had 
a profound influence upon her son. It was through her 
guidance that Carl developed an early interest in literature, 
art and science. Through friendships with Goethe and 
Lenz, he eventually became a mineral enthusiast, and 
consequently founded in 1779 the mineral collection at the 
University of Jena with the purchase of JOHANN ERNST 
IMMANUEL WaLCH's mineral and fossil collection.

Rare. This is the descriptive work refered 
to in Lenz' very rare "Mustertafeln" (Jena, 1794). 
The individual illustrations of the Mustertafeln are 
correspondingly numbered to descriptions in Lenz' 
" Versuch einer vollständigen Anleitungen" . In this 
work volume one (1794) describes the earth's, stones, 
salts, organic minerals and petrifications. Volume 2 
(1795) covers the metals and petrology. 

Contents: 1. Erd— und Steinarten, Salze, ölige

CONTENTS: [1-2], Title page, verso blank.; [3]-150, 
Text.; [1], Sectional title page.; 2-32, Text consisting 
of tables of mineral names arranged under standard 
headings. 

VERY SCARCE. This work is divided into two 
distinct parts, which perhaps indicates that the second 
portion was issued separately. The first part lists 
the external characteristics used in Wernerian doctrine 
to determine the species of a mineral. Under each 
property, the equivalent names of the property in Latin, 
Italian, French, Danish and Hungarian are also listed. 
For example, the first external character listed is "Die 
Farbe." Underneath this property are listed color 
(Latin), il color (Italian), la couleur (French), Farven 
(Danish) and à Szin (Hungarian). At that time, this 
work would have been useful as a translation dictionary 
for studying the proliferation of mineralogical literature 
published in langauges other than German. 

After page 150, with its own sectional title 
page is the second part of the work. This portion 
provides a tabular overview of the mineralogical 
basics for the species. The headings of the columns 
are "Klassen," "Geschlechter," "Gattungen" and 
"Arten," with individual species names listed under the

RARE. In this famous lapidary, Leonardi classifies 
over 250 types of hard gems and stones according to 
their color, hardness, porosity, weight and transparency. 
A third of the book is devoted to an alphabetical listing 
and description of particular stones, while another 
third is occupied with astrological and magical images 
carved on gems and their occult significence. The 
author, physician to Caesar Borgia, had gathered his 
matierals from many of the older writers, but "he shows 
some indications of having come under the influence 
of the newer methods of study which were about to 
be advoacted by Agrícola and his followers, in that 
he treats of certain physical properties of minerals..." 
(Adams). Leonardo da Vinci is mentioned in a chapter 
on the masters in the art of gem cutting.

VERY SCARCE. An early dictionary of topograph- 
ical mineralogy, in which the text lists in alphabetical 
order the names of the species, with geographical distri- 
bution underneath. At the end, an index reverses this 
position, and lists localities, with the known species un- 
derneath. This was one of the first works to attempt a 
comprehensive worldwide analysis of mineral distribu- 
tion.

SCARCE. The superb notes and references make 
this work more than a standard mineralogical text. The 
author had a good knowledge of the science, as is 
shown by the many instances where a complete synoptic 
history of the subject being described is added in a 
note. The work is divided into two portions. The 
first treats crystallography, physical properties, specific 
weight, optical characters, magnetism, electrical qualities, 
phosphorescence, and concludes with a discussion of the 
chemical properties and the theoretical framework and

LEONHARD, Karl Cäsar von. (Born: Rumpenheim 
near Hanau, Germany, 12 September 1779; DlED: 
Heidelberg, Germany, 23 January 1862) German 
mineralogist & geologist. 

Leonhard was the father of GUSTAV VON LEONHARD. 
He was a professor of mineralogy and geognosy at the 
University of Heidelberg from 1818 onwards. Earlier, 
he was land assessor in Hanau. He was the founder 
and publisher of one of the first mineralogical magazines, 
Taschenbuch får die gesammte Mineralogie, which is the 
ancestor of today's Jahrbuch [Neues] får Mineralogie, 
Geologie, und Palaeontologie. Leonhard built a personal 
mineral collection of over 8,000 specimens from the Harz, 
Switzerland, Poland, Vesuvius, Eifel, France, Iceland and 
elsewhere. This collection was acquired by the University 
of Göttingen after his death.

Rare. Co-authored with Ernst Karl Friedrich 
Merz [see note below] and JOHANN HEINRICH КОРР. 
This volume consists of a systematic survey of various 
mineralogical properties in the form of a series of 
tables. The lengthy descriptions give ample reference 
to external characters and the chemical qualities. In 
many instances throughout the text of this volume, 
the authors have also included remarks that reflect the 
inadequacies of science they had personally experienced; 
they fully understood the limitation of mineralogical 
science in their own time and attempt to convey 
this information to the reader. Leonard wrote the 
oryctognosy section, Merz the oryctology, and Kopp the 
chemical sections. 

Ernst Karl Friedrich Merz. (BORN: Hanau, Germany, 28 
February 1776; DIED: Bruchköbel, Germany, 19 November 
1813) German clergyman & naturalist. Merz was a priest 
first in Hanau, then at Bruchköbel near Hanau.

Rare. Co-authored with Johann Heinrich Kopp 
and Carl Ludwig Gaertner [see note below] , this remark- 
able mineralogy was the product of two years cooper- 
ation between the authors. It was intentionally writ- 
ten as an introductory volume to Leonhard, Merz and 
Kopp's earlier, Systematisch— Tabellarische Uebersicht 
und Charakteristik der Mineralkörper (Frankfurt am 
Main, 1806) [see previous entry]. 

After the short introduction which covers general 
information and definitions, the Propaedeutik is divided 
into seven major sections. The first of these concerns 
mineralogy in general, and covers outer characteristics 
like color, crystal form, cleavage, and taste, inner char- 
acteristics like hardness, phosphorecenze, magnetism, 
and electricity as well as classification schemes and 
nomenclature. Section two gives a distinctly Wernerian 
view of geognosie and how the earth is geologically or- 
dered, ore deposits, a theory of the planet's structure,

and geological nomenclature. The third section con- 
cerns fossils. Section four is a highly interesting account 
authored by Leonhard on the collecting of minerals. De- 
tails include instructions for the numbering and label- 
ing of specimens as well as the importance of cataloging 
ones collection. Section five briefly lists the epochs thus 
scene in the history of mineralogy, with Werner [q. v.] 
being given the most prominent typeface, followed next 
by Haüy, Agrícola, etc. The sixth section is an impor- 
tant and extensive bibliography covering mineralogy, 
geognosie, and paleontology. Compiled before the avail- 
ability of other major bibliographic works, this miner- 
alogical bibliography listing 2740 items is a remarkably 
complete list of books available to the mineralogist of 
the period. This classified bibliography was prepared by 
Gaertner, and it is divided into seventeen general cat- 
egories including literature Sc history, ancient mineral- 
ogy, periodicals, nomenclature, dictionaries, textbooks, 
systematic, topographical works, chemical, geology, and 
paleontology. Concluding the work is the seventh sec- 
tion, which gives an alphabetical list of all the authors 
mentioned in the bibliography together with short bi- 
ographical notes. In some instances, this is today still 
the only biographical information availiable about the 
authors. A very scarce book, probably due to a high 
cost in production. 

Johann Heinrich Kopp. (BORN: Hanau, Germany, 

17 September 1777; DIED: Hanau, Germany, 28 November 
1858) German physician & chemist. Kopp held an 

advanced degree in chemistry and was appointed professor 
extraordinary in 1843 and professor ordinary in 1853 in 
physics and chemistry at the University of Giessen. 

Karl Ludwig Gaertner. (BORN: Hanau, Germany, 7 

January 1785; DIED: Hanau, Germany, 3 October 1829) 
German apothecary. Gaertner opened a pharmacy in Hanau 
and became director of the Wetterau Society for the 
collecting of natural objects in that city.

VERY SCARCE. An amazing, well referenced, and 
substantial textbook of mineralogical science, treating in 
the introductory section all aspects of crystallography, 
physical and chemical properties, nomenclature, and 
theory of classification. This is followed by the 

descriptive mineralogy that is comprehensive and lengthy. 
Interestingly, the descriptions of most of the various species 
include tables of the various chemical analysis which are 
some of the earliest examples of comparative mineral 
chemistry published. Another feature is that with each 
species full references are given to the previous literature 
of the mineral. A classified bibliography of mineralogical 
literature is given on pages 103-106.

LESSER, Friedrich Christian. (Born: Nordhausen, 
Germany, 12 May 1692; DIED: Nordhausen, Germany, 
17 September 1754) German theologian. 

Lesser acted as a tutor in Berlin, before becoming 
pastor of the church and administrator of the Orphanage 
at Nordhausen. He was devoted to natural history and its

SCARCE. A complex and detailed work examining 
in every facet of the mineral kingdom the evidence of 
God's fingerprint. Referencing and quoting hundreds 
of ancient and contemporary writers Lesser assembled 
a tremendous bank of information to support his 
viewpoint that God alone was responsible for geology, 
mineralogy, crystallography, etc. The author was 
so successful in selecting his evidence that the 
Lithotheologie is commonly viewed as the one of 
the foundation works in reconciling theology with 
mineralogy and geology. 

The text is divided into nine books: (1) covers the 
fundamental relationship between the earth, air, water 
and life, (2) describes the origins of rocks, fossils and 
minerals, (3) describes the occurrences of mineralized 
bodies inside the earth, (4) covers the properties 
of stones and minerals, (5) highlights precious and 
semiprecious gemstones, (6) stones used in building, 
manufacture and art, (7) provides descriptions of the 
misuse of gemstones, e.g. mythical powers, (8) covers 
artificial stones of all types, and (9) wondrous stones, 
such as Lot's wife turned to a pillar of salt. At the end 
are two indexes. The first provides references to sections 
in the Bible, while the other lists subjects covered.

VERY SCARCE. A comprehensive introductory 
treatise on practical mineralogy that includes chapters 
on crystallography, optics, physical properties, chemical 
constitution, and illustrated with good color plates of 
various mineral species. The first portion of the text is 
divided into 6 sections. Topics covered are definitions, 
crystallography, optics, physical properties, chemical 
composition, practical determination of mineral species, 
and an overview of the systematic classification. 
The second portion is a descriptive mineralogy that 
illustrates many of the described species on one of 
the 26 chromolithographie plates, which show 396 
mineral specimens. These renderings are of good 
quality with individual species easily recognizable. 
They are the same plates that accompanied Gustav 
Adolf Sauer's Mineralkunde (Stuttgart, 1905-6) and 
Alexander Bernard's Atlas Minerdlù (Prague, 1907).

RARE. Second augmented edition, edited by FRANZ 
Ernst Brückmann, consisting of a reworking of the first 
edition together with supplemental material bringing the 
work up to date with a total of cl750 entries. It contains 
information found no where else. For example, there 
are scattered references to collection catalogues of mineral 
collections with short notes on their fate. For example 
"Catalogue ... über Metallen und Mineralien" of Benedict 
Drechsler, a mining officer in Wunsiedel, is described, 
and this is the only reference to this particular work. 
Brückmann adds that his fine collection was destroyed 
by fire in 1731. Two other supplements taking the work 
to 1742 were published by Brückmann in his Epistolorum 
Itinerariarum Centuria, 1742-50.

LEVY, Armand. (BORN: Paris, France, 14 November 
1795; DIED: Saint-Germain, France, 29 July 1841) 
French physician, mineralogist & mathematician. 

Levy was recognized early on to have a proclivity for 
math and was given a good education in France. In 1818, 
he was sent to London to study at the Royal College of 
Physicians. While in England he became associated with 
the successful mineral dealer Henry Heuland. Through 
Heuland, Levy came to know many of the leading English 
scientists, including especially William Hyde Wollaston 
[1766-1828] and the astronomer John William Herschel 
[1792-1871]. Levy became an instructor at the University 
of Liege in Belgium from 1828 to 1830. From there he 
went on to become professor of mineralogy at the College

[Atlas] 84 plates of crystal drawings on 83 leaves. 

VERY SCARCE. One of the most elaborate and 
important catalogs of any mineral collection. About 
1806 Henry Heuland [see note below] the premier 
mineral dealer of the nineteenth century obtained 
a fine collection of minerals formed by his mineral 
dealer uncle Jacob Forster [see note under Rome de 
l'lsle]. After considerably enhancing the collection 
with valuable additions, Heuland sold the collection 
to Charles Hampden Turner [see note below] in 1820. 
However, a condition of the sale was that an elaborate 
catalogue raisonné following the classification system 
of Haüy be prepared together with an atlas of crystal 
drawings. For this task the services of Armand Lévy, 
then resident in London, were retained. 

The dilgence of Lévy as a mineralogist was 
impressive. It was due to his careful examination 
of this large collection and his preparation of the 
illustrative crystal drawings that Levy discovered and 
described the mineral species: forsterite, babingtonite, 
brochantite, roselite, brookite, herschelite, phillipsite, 
and beudantite. In addition, Levy also described many 
new varieties of mineral species already known. These

descriptions were set forth in a number of articles 
published between 1822 and 1827. Then based upon 
the reputation created by these articles, he left London 
to live and teach in Belgium. This move to the continent 
ceased Levy's involvement with the Catalogue, even 
though as Heuland states in the preface, Levy had been 
given a substantial advance. In frustration, Heuland, 
on the advice of Henry James Brooke [q.v.] and his son 
Charles Brooke, turned the work over to M.E. Brookes 
who completed the 34 remaining plates and brought 
the manuscript to publication. The collection itself was 
eventually incorporated into Henry Ludlam's, which 
was bequeathed to the Museum of Practical Geology 
in London. 

John Henry Heuland. (BORN: 1778; DIED: Hastings, 
Sussex, England, 16 November 1856) English mineral 
collector & dealer. Heuland was the nephew of the mineral 
dealer Jacob Forster [see note under Rome de l'Isle], 
whose collection he inherited. Subsequently the collection 
was sold to Charles Hampden Turner, that was later 
incorporated into Henry Ludlam's, now in the Museum of 
Practical Geology, London. Heuland was elected to the 
Geological Society of London in 1813, becoming its foreign 
secretary from 1818 to 1828. The mineral "Heulandite" 
named for hirn by H.J. Brooke in 1822.

Rare. The author observes in his foreword 
that the field which had been assigned to mineralogy 
by Werner, Haiiy and Brongniart, is invaded by 
an exclusively chemical or physical approach of this 
science. Its course is based essentially on the combined 
principles of Werner and Haiiy. Illustrated by 356 
figures engraved in text. Leymery, professor at 

the Faculty of Science of Toulouse, is the author 
of a "Description géologique et paléontologique des 
Pyrénées" (1878-81). He died during an excursionin the 
Pyrenees. Some parts of this course has been published 
in "Journal des Mines."

Rare. Published in a series of four Theilien or 
parts, this catalog describes a comprehensive collection 
of minerals put up for sale beginning in May 1772. 
In the preface to the first Theil, Leysser extolls the 
virtue of mineral collecting as a pleaurable pastime 
per suit, and in particular, he directs the reader to 
the fine selection of specimens offered for sale in this 
publication. Unusual for the time, each specimen 
described has a fixed price for which the individual piece 
could be purchased.

RARE. No more published. According 

to the preface, Leysser collected earths, stones, 
minerals, metals and petrifications for over 60 years, 
accumulating over 10,000 specimens. He had collected 
minerals to enrich his knowledge of the science, and 
pursue in his own measured way, the theoretical aspects. 
No species escaped his notice and the collection includes 
examples of almost all the known ones, and many of 
their seemingly endless varieties. He writes at the end 
that his age and lack of time to study mineralogy have 
caused the collection to be put up for sale, through a 
Herrn Buhle, Inspector of the reform Gymnasium. 

This work, the only part published of two (the 
other to list the salts, inflammables, metals, semi- 
metals, and petrifications), classifies and describes the 
specimens of the earths and stones of this extensive 
collection, and includes besides the species name, 
information on the locality, and infrequently the 
year acquired, the source and references to other 
minealogical works. The collection was ultimately 
purchased by a collector of the name Bahr (finance 
advisor in Köthe) between 1806 and 1826, and was

LHWYD (Llhwyd, Lhuyd, Llwyd), Edward. (Born: 
Probably Glan Ffraid, Cardiganshire, Wales, 1660; 
DIED: Oxford, England, 30 June 1709) English 
antiquarian & naturalist. 

Lhwyd had very limited means while he was a student 
at Oxford, to the extent that he took rather miserable 
employment before completing a degree. Created an M.A. 
by Convocation, 1701. Lhwyd collected plants around 
the hill mass of Snowdon in Wales and established the 
existence of a distinct alpine flora and fauna there. Ray 
published Lhwyd 's list of plants around Snowdon in his 
Synopsis, 1690. He assisted Lister in cataloguing mollusks 
and fossils in Oxfordshire. This topic became his primary 
scientific interest and resulted ultimately in Lithophylacii 
botannici ichnographia, 1699. Fossils involved him in 
geology. Ichnographia included six letters on geological 
subjects. The fossil content of stones led him to question 
the deluge account. Lhwyd undertook a general natural 
history of all the Celtic parts of Britain (including also 
Ireland and Brittany). Achaeologia britannica, 1707, was 
to have been the first volume of this work, but Lhwyd did 
not live to publish the rest. That volume is more linguistic 
than scientific; it inaugurated the study of comparative 
Celtic philology. Lhuyd was assistant to Robert Plot, keeper 
of the Ashmolean Museum from 1683 to 1691. He took 
over the post after Plot's death? and became Keeper 
of the Ashmolean Museum, 1691-1709. Apparently the 
keepership carried no salary; Lhwyd derived his income 
from fees paid by visitors. Ellis says that his income 
from the museum never exceeded ¿50 per annum. Lhwyd 
undertook to collect material on Wales for a new edition 
of Camden's Britannia, published in 1695. For this he 
received a modest single payment from the publisher. 
He was partially supported by subscribers to his natural 
history of the Celtic parts of Britain, 1696-1700. In the 
first of these years he received more than ¿100; by 1700 
the amount had fallen off to about £11. Elected Esquire 
Beadle of Divinity at Oxford, 1709. This carried a salary 
of ¿100, but Lhwyd died after only a few months. 

Lhwyd undertook his contributions to Camden's 
Britannia explicitly to encourage Welsh gentry to support 
a bigger project, and immediately after Britannia appeared 
he did begin to garner support. In 1695 he published 
a proposal (see Ellis) solliciting support for a pension 
to finance his projected Archaeologia britannica, and 
he received enough to proceed, though not everything 
promised actually came in. He dedicated the volume of 
Archaeologia that did appear to Sir Thomas Mansell. He 
assisted Martin Lister with lists of Oxfordshire species of 
mollusks and fossils. Quarrelled with Dr. Woodword about 
the origin of marine fossils. Became a Fellow of the Royal 
Society in 1708.

LlBAVIUS (Libau), Andreas. (Born: Halle, 

Germany, cl560; DIED: Coburg, Germany, 25 July 
1616) German physician & alchemist. 

Libavius was born the son of a poor weaver, Johann 
Libau, who traveled from Harz to Halle in search of work. 
He attended the Universities of Wittenberg and Jena, and 
finally Basel from which he received his M.D. In 1581, he 
became a teacher at Illmenau. In 1586, he was appointed 
"Stadt- und Raths-Schulen Rector" (rector of the schools) 
in Coburg. From 1588-1591, Libavius worked as professor

of history and poetry at the University of Jena. In 1591, 
he moved to Rothenburg, where he became municipal 
physician. In 1592, he was also appointed inspector of 
schools and received a teaching position. Endless quarrels 
with the rector of the town schools led to his early 
departure. Libavius returned to Coburg in 1607, where 
he was named rector of the newly-founded Gymnasium 
Casimirianurn Academicum.

Rare. Called the first systematic and practical 
textbook of chemistry, the 1595 edition listed by some 
bibliographers is a ghost. Within this work Libavius 
displays his full command of both the theoretical and 
practical sides of chemistry. Included in the text are 
frequent references to analysis of mineralogical exam- 
ples. The author also provides an amazingly detailed 
account for setting up a complete chemical institute: a 
main laboratory, an analytical laboratory and a private 
laboratory for the director. There was also a chemical 
store, a preparation room, a crystallizing room, store 
rooms, , cellars, a wine cellar, a wood store, a room 
for the assistants, and a steam bath. Upper stories of 
the facility contained living quarters, study rooms and 
a well stocked library. 

Sometimes bound with the Alchernia. is the au- 
thor's commentary on alchemy. It has the ti-

SCARCE. An important chemical text by one of the 
founders of chemical analysis. Second edition of the first 
modern chemical textbook, which is generally considered 
one of the most beautiful of the seventeeth century because 
of its heavy use of illustrations. It contains over 200 designs 
and pictures of various sorts of chemical glassware, vessels, 
apparatuses and furnaces, as well as detailed architectural 
plans for building the chemical institute first outlined in 
the first edition. 

"Libavius's Alchernia is an excellent practical text- 
book in the sense that the author shows a full mastery 
of his sources and a clear, concise and sensible style, 
entirely different from the rambling, bombastic, and 
obscure verbosity of Paracelsus or the alchemical authors."

woodcut plate. Printer's device on dach of the title 
pages, head and tail pieces, and woodcuts initials. 

VERY RARE, especially in complete sets. This 
series of authoritative essays on a wide range of subjects 
probably reproduce Libavius' lectures and may have 
been used as a text book in his classes. Included is 
a great deal of practical and speculative information 
on the mineral wealth of the earth: the nature and 
transmution of metals, amber, fossil teeth, asphalt, 
bitumen, naptha, petroleum, coal, turf, and belemnites. 
Throughout Libarvius includes references to medicinal, 
alchemical and chemical properties. Also described in 
this compendium are Paracelsus' legacy, the flight of 
witches, posions, manna and honey, astrology, cornets, 
the phases of the moon, silk and silkworms, mineral 
waters, frogs, toads, and other diverse matters.

Rare. A work on the phosphorescent stone of 
Bologna. Kopp says that the first chemical preparation 
known to show phosphorescence was a paste made from 
a barite found near Bologna, and that it was described 
in this book. This is the most comprehensive 17th 
century work on the subject, and at the same time it is 
the least scientific approach. In the 55 chapters there 
is a detailed account of the various names by which the 
Bolognian stone was known, its discovery, the places 
where it occurred, and an attempt at explanation of its 
luminescence.

LINNAEUS (Linné), Carl. (Born: Rashult, 

Provience of Smaland, Sweden, 23 May 1707; DIED: 
Uppsala, Sweden, 10 January 1778) Swedish physican 
& botanist. 

Linneaus was educated at the Universities of Lund 
and Uppsala, where he studied medicine. He became 
adunctus to Olaf Rudbeck, at the University of Uppsala in 
1730. On a government sponsored expedition, he traveled 
4,600 miles in Lapland and Upper Scandinavia, discovering 
100 new species of plants. In 1732, he taught students 
how to assay ores. In 1738, he became naval physician in 
Stockholm. Appointed professor of medicine and botany at 
the University of Uppsala in 1741, Linneaus became widely 
known as the greatest botanist of his time.

RARE. One of the most famous and important 
books in the history of science, as well as one of 
the rariest. This first edition covered not only the 
animal and plant kingdoms but the mineral kingdom 
(regnum lapideum) as well. Although Linné would 
refine the system through extensive additions and 
alterations, its main principals would remain unchanged 
through the many subsequent editions. In creating 
a mineral classification, he attempted to duplicate 
what he had done for plants and animals. This 
method, which does not take chemical composition into 
account and inherently assumes organic propogation, 
is not suited to the inorganic products of nature, 
and the mineral system could never be as useful as 
his biological systems. Nevertheless, Linné and the 
principals of his mineralogical system, first outlined 
in this work, exterted a tremondous influence in 
mineralogical science. 

This first edition was printed at the request of 
Johann Friedrich Gronovius, one of the dutch admirers 
of the young Linné, for the "intention only to have a 
few copies ... to communicate it fully ... to the learned 
world" [see: Gronovius' letter to Sir Hans Sloane, 
reproduced in the Soulsby catalog of Linneaus]. Hence 
the extreme rarity of an original. 

Contains: 

Observationes in Regna 3 naturae. 

Caroli Linnaei Regnum Lapideum. 

Observationes in Regnum Lapideum. 

Clavis Systematis Sexualis. 

Caroli Linnaei Regnum Vegetabile. 

Observationes in Regnum Vegetabile. 

Observationes in Regnum Animale. 

Caroli Linnaei Regnum Animale. 

The equivalent Swedish names are given in the 
Mineralogical portion only of the work. 

The chief criticism of Linneaus' mineralogical 
classification was that it took into account only external 
characteristics without any attention to their chemical 
composition. Nevertheless, his observations in this field 
as well as geology and paleontology were in advance of 
his time. For example, he correctly attributed the origin 
of fossils to be the petrified remains of formerly living 
creatures.

has been changed to animals, plants, minerals from the 
minerals, plants, animals of previous editions.

als according to a binomial system for the first time. The 
plates belong to the mineralogical volume, which occupies 
volume four. 

The twelfth edition of the Systema Naturse incorpo- 
rated Linnaeus' most mature thought concerning individ- 
uals of the mineral kingdom. There were, Linnaeus stated 
in the preface to this section, three methods one might use 
to investigate the stones, minerals and fossils found in the 
natural enviorrnent. The first was the physical, which "de- 
scended through the obscure generation of minerals" ; the 
second was the natural, which "considered the superficial 
and visible structures" ; and the third was the chemical, 
which ascended through to the middle course, and, having 
thus provided a justification of his methodology, Linnaeus 
proceeded to make a systematic classification of various 
crystalline substances. — Burke (1966).

natural productions. By means of a careful application of 
rules of classification to minerals, plants, and animals, he 
had devised a scheme of classification that reduced Nature's 
infinite variety to a generalized conceptual scheme. This 
was an outstanding accomplishment in its time. Although 
Linné's theories would be replaced by other methods, the 
classification he developed for plants is still in use. The 
mineralogical portion together with a "Life of Linné" and 
an "Explanation of Terms" occupies the seventh volume.

These two journeys to Swedish islands in the Baltic 
Sea were made in 1741 at the request of government 
authorities. Linnaeus was com-missioned to try to find a 
clay suitable for making chinaware and fur-ther was to take 
note of any raw material which might be used in manu- 
factures so that the country would be less dependent on 
imports. He was not successful in this specific assignment, 
but at the same time he made many observations of the 
antiquities of the islands, the people, the mechanic arts 
and fishing. More than one hundred new plants were 
discovered, some of them useful in medicine, dyeing and 
the rural economy.

RARE. A journey undertaken by Linnaeus in 
1746 to various places in the central provinces of 
Sweden. It was one of several such trips financed by 
the government. 

On the pages shown here Linnaeus discusses 
Fdrgegrdsen or plants used to make dyes. He describes 
three varieties one of which is Wejde (Isatis tinctoria). 
This plant, often growing to a height of about three 
feet, bluish green in appearance and with a yellow 
flower, was used prior to the discovery of sea routes to 
India, to prepare indigo. This and other native colors 
were used in the provinces to dye peasant yarn and 
woven materials. The illustration, drawn by Linnaeus 
is Wejdeqwarnen or the Isatis mill which was used to 
pulverize the leaves of the plant. Domestic dyes made 
from plants are now being used again in Sweden because 
of the renewed interest in peasant crafts.
