Rare. The text is a discussion of the chemical characters and constituents of minerals and their relationships in any correct system of mineralogy. The author notes that all bodies are made up of chemicals, and that therefore any correct system of minerals will be based upon their chemistry. Considering the date of publication, this was a remarkable insight on the part of Vogelmann.
