From Mendelssohn, Vol.II, page 626: 'The introduction contains a short description of minerals, and the six systems of crystallography with an account of each, with diagrams. The work traces the development of the mineral resources of Southern Africa, and includes a large amount of information for scientific and practical purposes.'
A very early example of Johannesburg printing.
