Esslingen: J.F. Schreiber, 1871. Folio, pp. [2], vi, 64; 24 composite plates, 23 of them color lithographs with metallic details, each with one page of descriptive text; pictorial paper covered boards backed in red cloth; corners rubbed, endpapers refreshed, small chip on half-title neatly repaired, very good. "Very scarce. Second edition, issue B. Published as part three of: Naturgeschichte des Thier-, Pflanzen- und Mineralreichs. Each plate is accompanied by a page of descriptive letterpress" (Schuh). Johann Gottlob von Kurr published the first edition of Das Mineralreich in Bildern in 1858, and it was so popular that many editions in multiple languages followed, sometimes under new authorship after his death, resulting in a bibliographic quagmire.
