8vo. 619 pp. Index. Quarter black cloth with tips and marbled paper boards, gilt-stamped spine title; extremities a bit worn. Very good. Includes almost 11,000 citations in author, title, place and date format. Organized alphabetically under 18 different main and many sub-headings. Very strong in meteorological works. The index is indispensible. An important scientific library of 10, 660 works, mainly on meteorology, hydrography, physics, electricity, and magnetism. The library was founded in 1875 and incorporates the large and fine collection of Heinrich W. Dove (1803-79), one of the greatest meteorologists of the 19th century (DSB). The previous owner is almost certainly German physicist and meteorologist Johann Friedrich Wilhelm von Bezold (1837-1907) with his ownership signature.
