    Abstract

    THIS elaborate Treatise on the Minerals of the Harz will be very useful, as a work of reference, to those who are in charge of mineral collections, and to all who are specially interested in those species with which the treatise deals. In it the author has placed on record the results of the observations made by him in the course of the last eighteen years, during which period he has examined the private and public collections of the region, and has visited the Harz localities both to satisfy himself on the spot as regards the existence of the minerals at the places mentioned, and to obtain information as to the modes of occurrence; these visits were facilitated by the nearness of the district to Halle, of which University Dr. Lüdecke is a distinguished professor. Further, the author has incorporated the results of the study of Harz minerals by other mineralogists. In the case of the more important species, such as Galena and Copper-pyrites, a brief sketch is given of the geological features of the districts in which the minerals occur. The treatise is accompanied by an atlas of twenty-seven plates (chiefly crystal figures and stereographic projections) and a very clear map of the region, photographically reduced from the one prepared by Borchers in 1865. Prof. Lüdecke has done a considerable service to Mineralogy by the publication of the results of so thorough an examination of this important mineral region.
