Rare. A standard but still useful dictionary providing definitions and synonyms to terms found in mineralogy, geology and metallurgy. It gives an alphabetical listing of all the terminology to these subjects with a detailed introductory essay explaining the derivations of the nomenclature. Under many of the defined terms, references are given to the older literature. This dictionary is somewhat more comprehensive than other similar works of the era.
