(Born: Benešov, Czech Republic, 1826; Died: Plzeň, Czech Republic, 1883?) Czech writer & school teacher.

Jehlicka was educated in Prague. He entered into the teaching profession, and taught in a number of Czech towns, including Jindřichův, Hradec, Cheb and Prague. Later in his career he became inspector of schools for several different districts. He authored books in several fields including poetry, fiction, books for children and natural history, as well as translations into the Czech language of several works.

1. Czech, 1863.
Nauka o Nerostech. Návod k snadnějšímu učení se počátkům nerostopisu a geologie. Pro školy sepsal Pavel Jehlička, učitel na vyšším gymnásiu v Chebu. Se 60 vyobrazeními. V Praze Nákladem kněhkupectví: I.L. Korber, 1863.

8°: 167 p., 60 illus. (mostly line drawings).

Rare. A beautiful, illustrated book about geology and mineralogy written in the cheerful, old Czech language. It is divided into two sections. The first (pp. 1-73) focuses on geology, while the second (pp. 74-167) describes aspects of mineralogy and European mineral resources. In his descriptive mineralogy, the author uses a classification scheme probably derived from some German system, which groups the minerals into: 1. gaseous minerals, 2. liquid minerals, 3. soluble minerals, 4. crude minerals (German: erdige Mineralien), 5. metallic minerals and 6. flammable minerals. He also provides good descriptions of several European mineral deposits.

2°: π2 1-152; 32l.; [4], [1]-55, [5] p., 24 chromolithographic plates (numbered A-B, I-XXII). Page size: 320 x 208 mm.

Rare. The beautiful chromolithographic plates are the same as those used in the Mineral Kingdom series authored by Kurr and Kenngott in the last half of the 19th century. The text by Jehlička follows closely the layout of the original work and should be considered a translation, although there appears to be no indication of this in the text.
