The collection of Heinrich Christofer Gottfried von Struve was assembled in the early 1800's. A contemporary of Humboldt and Jules Verne; Struve, a Russian naturalist and diplomat, accumulated over 9,000 mineral specimens from throughout Europe and beyond. This reproduction of a portion of the catalog showcases 82 plates featuring crystal drawings of key mineral specimens. A color photograph accompanies each drawing. A fine work highlighting mineral collecting in the early 19th century. 100 pages.
