Beiträge zur mineralogie und geologie des Nördlichen Amerika's. Nach amerikanischen Zeitschriften bearbeitet von Heinrich von Struve ... Hamburg, Bei Perthes & Besser, 1822.

Rare. The state of mineralogy in the free states of America is so little known that this treatise was deamed necessary for the friends of nature. In its preparation, the American journals of Benjamin Silliman, the Journal of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and Cleaveland's Treatise on Mineralogy and Geology have been consulted. The first 22 pages contain a listing of minerals found in North America by Struve. The remainder of the volume are devoted to extracts of articles by Schoolcraft, Jessup, Dickson, Troost, among others.
