In the years between the publication of the two editions, enormous progress had been made by Klaproth, Haüy and Brochant de Villiers (among others) in the knowledge of the chemical composition and crystal structure of minerals. This second edtion contains all the latest knowledge in determining mineral species while still using Werner's system. Volume 2 contains a long section (pp. 511-653) on geognosy."
