         Set of Cook’s Three Voyages.

      London, 1773-1784. 6/25/16. b/w plates, charts, many folding and double page. to. 8 vols. Various paginations. This set consists of the first printing of Cook’s first voyage, the second printing of Cook’s second voyage, and the second printing of Cook’s third voyage, with all plates and charts, along with the "Chart of the Streight of Magellan" in volume I. It is a clean set, with pages very slightly and evenly tanned, light offsetting from some plates and charts, and occasional foxing. Bound in 19th century half black morocco over marbled boards, with top edges gilt and outer and bottom edges marbled. Backstrips in six compartments with elaborate gilding and anchor decorations, and title and date labels. Light wear to spine ends, but a very good set with an agreeable antique look. Most interestingly, the title pages of the first three volumes bear what I believe to be GEORG FORSTER'S signature. Forster accompanied Cook on his second voyage, and wrote his own important account.

         Grand Quatuor Pour Deux Violons, Alto et Basso [Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34] - 1832 Copyist Manuscript with Interesting Provenance

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph manuscript copy of the complete parts for Paganini's Quartet No. 7 in E major for violin, viola, cello and guitar, M.S. 34, here transcribed for standard String Quartet (violin, violin, viola, cello).  8.5" x 13". 54 pages including front cover and individual cover pages. Outer wrapper spine reinforced with early paper tape over original threaded binding, scattered staining, overall very good. 
The title page and likely the manuscript entirely in the hand of Johann Christoph Bauriegel (1773 - 1851), German teacher and Biblical scholar who lived in Pulgar (near Leipsic), and who has signed lower right "Johs: Bauriegel / Pulgar 1832."  Cover and parts also inscribed and stamped by the composer and arranger, Carl Dietrich (1816 - 1875), and further by Friedrich Maximillian Bernhardt Fincke (1821 - 1906), noted German-born physician and homeopathic pioneer who was also well known as a musician. 
In all, Paganini wrote fifteen quartets for violin, viola, guitar and cello, but only three for the archetypal string quartet. Composed between 1817 - 1818, the present work is dedicated to the Genovese Marquis Caterian Raggi Pallavicini, and is a notably more interesting composition than the earlier quartets. Only five of Paganini's works were published during his lifetime, and the rest of his oeuvre was published posthumously, including the present Quartet No. 7 in E Major, which was the first of the quartets to have been published in its original version after the composer's death.  Notably, the Leipzig firm Kistner published a transcription of the work for String Quartet ca. 1830 (plate number 839), this being the likely model from which the present manuscript was copied.

         An Account of the Voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty for making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour [Together with:] A Voyage towards the South Pole, and Round the World. Performed in His Majesty's Ships the Resolution and Adventure, in the years 1772, 1773, 1774 and 1775 [Together with:] A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean. Undertaken by the command of His Majesty, for making Discoveries in the Northern Hemisphere.

      London: W. Strahan and T. Cadell, 1773-84 - 9 volumes: 8 quarto (285 x 215 mm) and one folio (567 x 395 mm). Uniformly bound in late 19th-century brown half morocco, spines gilt tooled with nautical motifs, brown pebble-grain cloth sides, speckled egdes. Bindings slightly rubbed at extremities, a few maps torn at folds (but without loss), one or two of the larger plates trimmed by the binder, scattered foxing in some volumes. A very good set, complete and uniformly bound. With all plates, maps and plans as called for. Second and best edition of the first voyage, first edition of the second and third voyages. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilisation and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed. He also suggested the existence of antarctic land in the southern ice ring, a fact which was not proved until the explorations of the nineteenth century. Cook was a brilliant navigator and hydrographer, an excellent administrator and planner, and probably the first sea captain to realise the importance of preserving the health and well-being of his crew. He did everything possible to maintain their physical fitness and the cleanliness of both men and ships. He conquered the hitherto prevalent scurvy by cutting down the consumption of salt meat and by always having fresh vegetables and fruit on board" (PMM). The National Maritime Museum catalogue points out that the third voyage "was so eagerly awaited by the public that it was sold out on the third day after publication, and although the published price was £4 14s. 6d, as much as 10 guineas was offered by would-be purchasers".

He wrote many royalist pamphlets, notably against Titus Oates and his great Popish plot. For this loyal service to the King, under James II he was made chief censor of the press, and a very diligent if not aggressive, one he was too. However, under the new management he only narrowly avoided imprisonment and towards his latter days earned a living by translating several texts into English. His two largest and most accomplished works are the Fables of Aesop and this volume, generally considered as a very superior translation, if rather scarce. This copy is tight clean and bright with good margins. Condition Report Externally · see above and photos Internally see above and photos [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Chart of Part of the Coast of New South Wales, From Cape Tribulation to Endeavour Straits. By Lieut. J.Cook, 1770.

      1773 - London: Strachan & Cadell, 1773. FIRST EDITION. 330 x 370mm. A very fine example. Cook's chart of the Cape York Peninsula from Cape Tribulation to Cape York, orientated with north to the right. At Cape Tribulation is a note: 'On this ledge the ship laid 23 Hours, and received much damage'. After this setback Cook sailed outside the dangerous reefs and so the coast between Cape Flattery and Cape Weymouth was not mapped. These reefs and islands he called 'The Labyrinth'. Engraved by J.Cheevers for Hawkesworth's important work 'An Account of the Voyages. for making Discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere', the official account of Cook's First Voyage.

         A Decade of Curious Insects:

      Printed for the Author 1773 - 24, (2), 10 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. . HB. 4to (270x210mm), attractive 19th century half morocco, marbled boards. Binder's ticket 'Woolman, Stockton on Tees'. Occasional minor spotting, minor dust soiling to a few page corners. Fine copy. 'Some of them not describ'd before: Shewn in their natural size; and as they apear enlarg'd before the Lucernal Microscope; In which the Solar Apparatus is artificially illuminated. With their History, Characters, Manners, and Places of Abode.' A printed note to the verso of title reads 'Ladies who may chuse to paint these insects themselves may have sets of the cuts on Royal Paper printed pale for that purpose'. Illustrated with charming, vivid hand coloured engraved plates of greatly enlarged microscopic insects, some of which appear rather inaccurate. Hagen states, 'Fabricius nennt die Abbildungen ‘fictitiae’ wohl mit Unrecht, da durch künstliche Beleuchtung nicht achromatischer Gläser offenbar Hill die Sachen so sah, wie er sie abbildet.' [Fabricius called the illustrations 'fictitiae' probably unfairly, because with artificial lighting without achromatic lenses apparantly Hill saw things as he depicted them].[Hagen I, p. 366; Nissen ZBI, 1938].

         Essays concerning iron and steel:

      12mo., (2) 223 (1)pp., wanting a half-title, short tear to inner margin of title (no loss), inner margin (gutter) of following leaf stained, contemporary sheep, stamped in blind, some wear to joints else a sound copy. A valuable contemporary contribution to the rather fraught, and certainly competitive, early development of modern steel manufacture in England. Although Benjamin Huntsman (1704-1776) of Sheffield has been usually credited with the invention of crucible steel, or 'cast steel' as it was known at the time, the little known Henry Horne, a London-based cutler seems also to have played a part in developing new methods of steel manufacture at about the same time. Surprisingly, Horne mentions in his Essays neither Huntsman nor Samuel Walker, another contemporary experimenter in crucible steel making. In his book, Horne claims originality in his own process and seems to have perfected an efficient and commercial steel razor manufacturing business in London, the steel itself being produced with a highly polished surface. The steel used, Horne claimed, was "vastly superior" to that produced by his rival, John Waller, and which Horne was able to supply to the London cutlers "at a very moderate price". Waller eventually took the process to Sheffield and was able to undercut Horne's prices, resulting, inevitably, in substantial loss of business to the London manufacturer. Horne, while now hardly a footnote to industrial history, was certainly an early cast steel maker, although there is nothing in his account to suggest a date earlier than 1765, by which time others in Sheffield were also practising the art.

         eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift, 3 S., Lindenau 17.09.1833

      - Heinroth (1773-1843), bekannt als erster Lehrstuhlinhaber für Psychiatrie ("Psychische Heilkunde") überhaupt, war zur Zeit der Abfassung deses Briefes zwar Professor der Medizinischen Fakultät, aber immer wieder auch in Geldnot. Er hatte im Februar 1833 beim Rat der Stadt um eine feste Anstellung im St. Georgenhaus gebeten, was aber ebenso abgelehnt wurde wie eine reguläre Gehaltserhöhung (Steinberg/Angermeyer, 200 Jahre Psychiatrie in Leipzig, p. 26). Hier ein bewegender Brief in wohl äußerster Geldnot. Heinroth weigert sich, einen Ring, den er schon einmal für 200 Taler ins Pfandhaus gegeben hatte, für 150 Taler zu verkaufen, sieht aber andererseits keine Möglichkeit, seine Schulden bei dem Adressaten zu bezahlen: ". Aber wie nun? Herr Hilliger verlangt zu Ende dieses Monats die Rückzahlung des Capitals?

         First [-Eighth] Report from the Committee of Secrecy Appointed by the House of Commons . . . to Enquire into the State of the East India Company.

      London, Printed for T. Evans, 1773. - 12 reports in 2 volumes. Folio (32 x 21.2 cm.), contemporary blind-tooled calf (very worn and chafed, covers detached, spine labels gone), spines with raised bands in six compartments, covers decorated in blind. Internally sound, and in fine condition. Overall in good condition. Many folding tables in text. The @Eighth Report lacks all after p. cxxii of the Appendix [only 1 leaf?]. *** These two volumes contain 8 of 9 reports from the Committee of Secrecy on the East India Company; 2 of 5 reports of the Committee Appointed to Enquire into the Nature, State and Condition of the East India Company; and 2 of 4 reports of the Select Committee on the East India Company. The @Eighth Report contains (pp. 209-15) correspondence of Warren Hastings. Although portions of these voluminous reports are concerned with petty matters, much light is shed on the internal politics of England and India during a crucial period in their history.In August 1772, during the sitting of the Select Committee (no. 23), the Company was forced to ask the Government for a million pound loan. This caused an uproar; it was only in March they had given a dividend. Parliament was recalled, and Lord North moved for a Committee of Secrecy to examine the question, since there had been complaints that the Select Committee had divulged confidential information. The Select Committee continued to sit, but a new Secret Committee of 13 was also set up. The two Committees overlapped; all their reports were damning. "In a country where abuses of office are practised with an audaciousness that seems to except the offender to instant punishment, and yet are supported by such a complication of artifice, and multitude of associates, that to detect is difficult, and to mark an offender almost impossible . . . we shall be very solicitous to hear what progress is made by the supervisors in this object of their enquiries [into the powers of Collectors], since we more than suspect the result will lay open a most iniquitous scene of oppression and peculation" (letter from the Committee to Richard Becher, one of their members, sent to India to investigate abuses, April 1770). This is one of many such letters. One conclusion the Committee came to was that "the present state of the Company in England, for want of cash, is principally owing to the great quantity of bills drawn by the Company's Presidencies in India, in the season of 1770, and accepted in England since the first day of March 1772."These reports are a mine of information and make fascinating reading, unexpected from the headings of the enquiry: Debt and Revenues, Territorial Management, Freight and Demurrage, Judicature, salt trade, and so on. This most able and thorough report has 137 appendices, a general appendix, and an excellent and detailed index.Each report appears to have been printed in two editions: one with the imprint of T. Evans (as here) and another with no publisher or bookseller identified on the title-page. Most of the reports were also reprinted London, 1803-04 in a collected edition by order of the House of Commons. @ESTC lists all of the reports in our set-locating 4 to 7 copies of each worldwide-except for the @Eighth Report. No institution (including the British Library) is reported as owning as nearly complete a set of the reports as we offer here.*** @ *** BOUND WITH: [First-Second] Report from the Committee Appointed to Enquire into the Nature, State, and Condition of the East India Company, and of the British Affairs in the East Indies.

      Apud Orell, Gessner, Fuesslin & Socios., Zurich 1773 - ______ Format : In-folio. Collation : (8), 83, (1) pp., 29 planches. Demi-basane brune à coins. (Reliure récente.). ___ First edition. Illustrated by 29 engraved plates. "Antoine Gouan (1733-1821) became the doyen of the Linnaean taxonomy in France. He was the first to introduce binary nomenclature in the country and to publish a flora which was almost fully Linnaean. . Gouan lived to the age of 88, but his published output diminished gradually after his 'Illustrationes et observationes botanicae' of 1773. His Montpellier school of taxonomists, however, produced several of the most important French Linnaeans." (Stafleu. Linnaeus and the Linnaeans pp. 269-271). ____ Première édition. Illustré par 29 planches gravées hors-texte, d'après les dessins de l'auteur. La plupart représentent des plantes des Pyrénées. Dans l'esprit de Gouan, "ce superbe in-folio, enrichi de vingt-huit gravures dessinées par lui-même, devait constituer 'un premier cahier d'observations réalisées aux environs de Montpellier, dans les Cévennes, aux Pyrénées et au Jardin royal, sur les plantes des quatre parties du monde'. . Plus qu'à une simple construction systématique, Gouan s'y livre à une véritable analyse critique de la biologie des espèces, tant indigènes qu'exotiques." (Rioux, Le Jardin des Plantes de Montpellier, p. 59). Antoine Gouan (Montpellier, 1733-1821) a été le plus ardent propagateur des idées de Linné en France. Son ouvrage a été publié par les soins du botaniste Albrecht von Haller. Les planches sont chiffrées 1 à 26, 20a, 20b. Aux 28 planches de cet ouvrage, une planche supplémentaire a été reliée à la fin, intitulée "Astragalus Narbonnensis. Gouan illustrationes".

Joseph Priestly, the eminent scientist and prominent dissenter, took exception to Blackstone's position and proposed an alternative view based on religious freedom and tolerance. In 1768 John Wilkes [1727-1797], publisher of the controversial paper the North Briton, was elected to Parliament by Middlesex County. However, he was imprisoned for seditious libel and expelled.

         A collection of six proof plates from the John Hawkesworth edition of Cook's first voyage.

      Oblong folio. Stitched into original plain paper wrappers; one plate creased where sometime folded, one other plate soiled to right margin, else very good and clean, four plates untrimmed; housed in a custom-made cloth folder with morocco lettering-piece on front cover. This small collection of plates, very rare avant la lettre (before the captions were added by the engraver) from Cook's first voyage includes nos. 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 from the second volume of Hawkesworth's voyages, retaining broad margins and, except one, unfolded; good, deep impressions from the plates without wear. Provenance: The plates were among the property of Sir William Fowle Middleton, of Shrublands, purchased by him in 1788. His collection passed with marriage to 4th Lord de Saumarez in 1882. The proofs are now housed in a custom-made cloth folder with gilt-stamped black morocco lettering-piece on the front and comprise (given in the order of the binding): I.

         Bertuchs Bilderbuch für Kinder. 12 Bände.

      - Friedrich Justin Bertuch, »der Kaufmann der Goethezeit« wie ihn sein Biograf von Heinemann nannte, gehört zu den interessantesten und Vielseitigsten Persönlichkeiten der Kulturgeschichte seiner Zeit. Nach dem Studium der Theologie und Jura lebte er seit 1773 in Weimar und avancierte hier zum »shooting star« der Gesellschaft. Bertuch wurde kaufmännischer Mitarbeiter an der von Wieland herausgegebenen Zeitschrift »Teutscher Merkur«. Diese Verbindung sollte sich auswirken, als Karl August, mit 18 Jahren die Regierung antrat. Auf Empfehlung des Prinzenerziehers Wielands berief er den 28jährigen Bertuch zu seinem Geheimsekretär und Schatullenverwalter, mit einem Jahresgehalt von 300 Talern. 1775 holte der junge Herzog den bereits berühmten Dichter Johann Wolfgang von Goethe nach Weimar. Die jungen Leute verstehen sich gut. Goethe bietet Bertuch das brüderliche Du an, welches Ihm der Dichterfürst später wieder entzieht. Zusammen mit Schiller wird er in den Xenien Hohn und Spott über ihn ausgießen. Bertuch wird dessen ungeachtet die erste Goethe-Ausgabe bei Goeschen mit finanzieren und der Geheime Rat wird sich an der Erstellung der Grabrede an den 1822 verstorbenen Unternehmer beteiligen. 1776 wird Bertuch Mitglied der Weimarer Freimaurerloge »Amalia« und schon bald zeigt er seine unternehmerischen Fähigkeiten. Die Bekanntschaft mit dem Maler Georg Melchior Kraus brachte ihn auf die Idee, eine Zeichenschule zu gründen. Diese Schule sollte von eminenter Bedeutung für das hier angezeigte »Bilderbuch« werden, da sie Bertuch die nötigen künstlerischen Kräfte für die über tausend kolorierten Kupfer bot. 1780 gründet er eine Fabrik für künstliche Blumen, um die »leider unbeschäftigten Mädchen der mittleren Classen heilsamer Arbeit zuzuführen«. Unter diesen Mädchen war auch eine Christiane Vulpius, spätere Frau von Goethe. Eine wichtige Ergänzung seiner Blumen- und Galanteriewarenfabrik bildet das 1786 gegründete »Journal der Moden«, mit dem Bertuch ausländische Modeströmungen zu Hause bekanntmachen und zugleich für seine Produkte Reklame machen konnte. Sein größtes Projekt wurde aber das »Industrie-Comptoir«. In einer Denkschrift beschreibt er es als »ein öffentliches kaufmännisches Commissions-Comptoir, in welchem jeder einheimische Künstler, Fabrikant und Handwerker die Muster seiner Fabrikate aufstellen, sie durch dasselbe außer Landes vertreiben . und von demselben richtige Zahlung und Sicherheit für seine Lieferung haben kann«. Bertuchs Verlag gehörte mit über 2000 publizierten Bücher und Zeitschriften zu einem der größten Unternehmen in Deutschland, Zeitweise beschäftigte er über 450 Mitarbeiter mit einer jährlichen Gehaltssumme von 27.000 Talern und war damit größter Arbeitgeber in Weimar. Sein eigenes Gehalt belief sich auf 3000 Taler und entsprach dem des Ministers Goethe.1790 begann Bertuch mit seinem größten Buchprojekt, dem »Bilderbuch für Kinder«. Er schreibt: »Ein Bilderbuch ist für eine Kinderstube ein ebenso wesentliches und noch unentbehrlichres Meuble als die Wiege, die Puppe, oder das Steckenpferd«. Die Auflage betrug 3.000 Exemplare. Das Werk erschien in einzelnen Lieferungen, um den Bezug auch für einen kleineren Geldbeutel möglich zu machen. Dennoch belief sich schließlich der Preis der bis 1830 erschienenen 237 Lieferungen mit ihren 1185 kolorierten Kupfern, einschließlich des 24-bändigen Begleitwerks Funkes mit seinen über 15.000 Seiten, auf rund 125 Taler. Ein Maurer verdiente damals (bei 304 Arbeitstagen) 72 Taler. Heute kostet das Werk im Antiquariatsbuchhandel etwa 15.000.- Euro. Im Vorwort entwickelt Bertuch sein bilddidaktisches Programm: Ein Bilderbuch müsse »schön und richtig gezeichnete und keine schlecht gestochene Kupfer haben, weil nichts wichtiger ist, als das Auge des Kindes, gleich vom Anfange an, nur an wahre Darstellung der Gegenstände . zu gewöhnen«. Weiter: »Es muß nicht zu viele und zu sehr verschiedene Gegenstände auf einer Tafel zusammendrängen; sonst verwirrt es die Imagination des Kindes und

         Bibliotheca Westiana: A Catalogue of the Curious and truly Valuable Library of the late James West, Esq; President of the Royal Society

      - digested by Samuel Paterson. Which will be sold by Auction, by Mess. Langford on Monday, the 29th of March 1773, and the Twenty-three following Days viii, 239 (i.e. 235) pp. 8vo, cont. French red morocco, triple gilt fillet round sides, flat spine richly gilt, a.e.g. [London]: 1773. The second of the auction catalogues prepared for the sale of the library of James West. This is a splendid copy bound in contemporary French red morocco and entirely ruled in red (including the title-page) with prices in a contemporary hand. This copy belonged to the famous book collector Michael Wodhull (1740-1816), who has characteristically recorded on the free front flyleaf the price, date and place of purchase as well as signed it. West (1704-73), treasurer of the Inner Temple and President of the Royal Society, formed a collection of printed books "exceedingly rich in early English ones. It contained no fewer than thirty-four Caxtons, and a large number of works from the presses of Lettou, Machlinia, the anonymous ‘Scole mayster’ of St. Albans, Wynkyn de Worde, Pynson, and the rest of the old English typographers, many of which were unique copies. His manuscripts were exceptionally interesting and valuable."–Fletcher, English Book Collectors, p. 205–(& see pp. 203-07). His library was also strong in scientific, historical, and philosophical works as well as books dealing with law and crime. West bought at all the great sales and dispersals in England for nearly fifty years, including those of Rawlinson, Harley, and Folkes. West also formed large collections of prints, drawings, paintings, medals and coins, and an important natural history cabinet. Upon his death, the collections were consigned to a general auctioneer, Messrs. Langford, who were a stone’s-throw from West’s house and experienced in selling anything and everything. Langford’s prepared a catalogue of the library but suppressed it within a week due to its inferior and chaotic cataloguing and modest appearance. Samuel Paterson, the great auctioneer and cataloguer, was called in to produce a fresh catalogue, under the auspices of Messrs. Langford, intended to be more worthy of the library’s fame. Paterson’s catalogue — the present one — merged all the books. The number of lots was increased from 3796 to 4653 and the cataloguing was far superior (the compiler of the first catalogue disliked titles in German and had only a slight knowledge of the older books). The sale, with Paterson officiating, brought nearly 3000 pounds which was a very great event for the time. All the great English collectors of the period were buyers including Bindley, Wodhull, Dr. Askew, Dr. Hunter, George Mason, Thomas Crofts, and C.M. Cracherode. A very fine copy. ?

This Gentleman has generously permitted him to make use of many excellent Paintings of these subjects, which were taken from Nature by those two celebrated Artists Mr. George Dennis [sic] Ehret, and Mr. Jacobus van Heysum [sic], and executed with the utmost Judgment and Command of Pencil, so that he could hardly doubt but that the true Copies of them would give great Pleasure to the Lovers of Botany, whom he has endeavoured to entertain with all the Variety he could introduce". The 'most curious Naturalist' is Joseph Banks who had purchased some 65 finished drawings by Ehret. "Benjamin Wilkes was one of the most significant of the group of eighteenth-century 'aurelians' which established British entomology in the direction it was to follow for well over a century" (Wilkinson, Benjamin Wilkes, the British Aurelian p. 4). It has only recently been rediscovered that the plates of Wilkes' work were to a large extent after drawings by the most renowned botanical painters of the 18th century, George Ehret 'Flower painter extraordinary' and Jacob van Huysum.

A fine copy of 'one of the best illustrated and most complete accounts on fossils.' (Landwehr 95). "The outstanding work of this period is undoubtedly that of Knorr and Walch in four volumes . The first volume was written by the Nürnberg collector and artist, Georg Wolfgang Knorr (born 1705, died 1761), and the other three volumes were prepared after the death of Knorr by Professor Walch of Jena ." (Zittel pp. 21-22). The rare Dutch edition of the German original 'Naturgeschichte der Versteinerungen' (Nuremberg 1768-1773) with the same beautiful plates. Volume II almost entirely concerns fossil shells. "It is hardly possible to exaggerate the beauty and fidelity of the representations of the fossils in his plates. No such illustrations had ever before appeared, and they have hardly been surpassed since. By delicate lines on the copper plates the most minute intricacies of structure are reproduced, and by thin washes of colour the tints of the original specimens are represented. His renderings of dentritic markings, landscape-marble, fossil plants, crustacea, crinoids, fishes and other fossils are admirable examples of the union of artistic workmanship with scientific accuracy ." (Geikie, Founders of Geology, pp. 101-102). 'The extraordinary quality of the plates, representing the eighteenth-century continuation of the tradition of Dürer, led to an expansion of the work by Walch, as well as to French and Dutch editions. the detail and accuracy of Knorr's engravings not only made possible zoological classification but firmly established the distinction between fossils of organic and sports of nature' (DSB).The books portrays and describes a.o fossils in the cabinets of famous collectors such as Walch at Jena, Adam Hildebrand at Naumberg, Jac. Theod. Klein, Johann Hermannus at Regensburg, S.R. Genzmer at Stargard, as well as the large collection of Casimir Schmidel.Nissen ZBI, 2233; Ward & Carozzi 1285; Landwehr 95.
