Very scarce. This is another of the many mineralogical books designed to illustrate the wide variety of colors and forms exhibited in the mineral kingdom. The first part first defines what a mineral is, which is followed by a long description of the 95 figures illustarted on the 10 colored plates. The second part describes the insturments used in mineralogy, followed by a long description of the 104 figures illustrated on the 10 color plates. The chromolithographic plates are of very good quality, and they appear to be original to this work.

The two parts of this work were reissued as title page editions.

2nd edition, 1923: Atlas de mineralogía. Barcelona, C. Seither, 1923. 2 parts.

3rd edition, 1926: Atlas de mineralogía. Barcelona, C. Seither, 1923. 2 parts.
