NAUMANN, Georg Amadeus Carl Friedrich.

NAUMANN, Georg Amadeus Carl Friedrich.
(1797 - 1873)

(Born: Dresden, Germany, 30 May 1797; Died: Leipzig, Germany, 26 November 1873) German mineralogist & crystallographer.

Naumann was brother of the Freiberg Bergakademie mathematician Constantin August Naumann [1800-1852]. He made a extensive trip through Norway in 1821 and 1822, before becoming a private docent first at Jena in 1823 and then Leipzig in 1824. He was appointed a professor of crystallography and discipliar-Inspector at the Freiberg Bergakademie in 1826. In 1835, his duties increased to include a professorship of geognosy. In 1842, Naumann was named professor ordinary of mineralogy and geognosy at the University of Leipzig. He was elected a foreign member of the French Academy of Sciences and the Saxon Royal Academy of Science.

[Atlas] No Title page. The atlas consists of 39 plates labeled Taf I-Taf XXXIX showing crystal drawings.

Very scarce. His "Lehrbuch der reinen und angewandten Krystallographie" (1830) was even more important in that Naumann introduced a novel method for the designation and treatment of crystal forms, which greatly simplified and coordinated those of Weiss and Mohs and which was adopted almost immediately by German crystallographers. Naumann also analyzed the tetragonal system in this work and commenced an examination of the incomplete symmetry of some crystals, which led to many published descriptions of tetartohedrism and hemimorphism. Although Naumann continued to write on crystallography, his central interest turned to geognosy.

Rare. This is the first appearance of Naumann's Elements of Mineralogy a deservedly praised textbook, which became the most popular instrument in the German university system of the last half of the nineteenth century. During his lifetime, on a regular basis Naumann revised and enlarged the text, thus keeping in step with all the latest discoveries in the science. After his death in 1873, the tenth edition of the work appeared under the editorship of one of his former students, Ferdinand Zirkel, a renowned mineralogist in his own right.

Naumann, 30 May 1852.; [ix]-xvi, "Inhalt."; [1]-440, Text.; [441]-448, "Register."

Very scarce. Prof. Naumann in his excellent work, commences with crystallography, the elements of which are presented without entering into mathematical formulas. The physical and chemical characters and classification of minerals occupy the next 90 pages, and are treated with much detail and system. In his classification of species, which is related to that of Mohs, he adopts 16 classes: - I. Hydrogenoxyd; II. Hydrolytes; III. Chalcites; IV. Haloids; V. Earths; VI. Geolites; VII. Amphoterolites; VIII. Chalcolites; IX. Tantalitoids; X. Metalloxyds; XI. Metals; XII. Glances or Galenoids; XIII. Pyritoids; XIV. Cinnabarites or Blendes; XV. Thiolites; XVI. Anthracides. The arrangement is quite similar to that adopted (as a modification of Mohs's system) in the 1st and 2nd editions of Dana's Mineralogy. The author enumerates and describes 643 species of minerals, giving the crystallography and chemical characters of each briefly but with precision, and mentioning the prominent localities.

Zirkel's Stewardship

In 1873 after the death of Naumann, authorship of the Elemente der Mineralogie transferred to Ferdinand Zirkel [1838-1912]. One of the best mineralogists of the time Zirkel continued the textbook authoring six more editions until the last issue appeared in 1907.

Ferdinand Zirkel. (Born: Bonn, Germany, 20 May 1838; Died: Bonn, Germany, 11 June 1912) German mineralogist, petrographer & geologist. Zirkel was educated in his native town, and graduated Ph.D. at the university in 1861. In early years he was engaged in teaching geology and mineralogy in Vienna. He became professor of geology in 1863 at the University of Lemberg, in 1868 at Kiel, and in 1870 professor of mineralogy and geology in the University of Leipzig.

Scarce. This important theoretical crystallography textbook is divided into two sections. Beginning from an introduction to analytical geometry, Naumann develops the foundation of crystallographic studies from a mathematical viewpoint. General topics covered include axis definitions, space groups, zoning, and twinning. The later section (pp. 73-383) applies the introductory material to detailed discussions of each crystal system class: tessular (cubic), tetragonal, hexagonal, rhombic, monoclinic, and triclinic. Within each of these systems Naumann provides in depth observations on the formation of the class, variations that are encountered, distortion of the axes, twinning, etc.
