J. Freygang     

J. Freygang was a mineral and fossil dealer in Bodenwöhr, Oberpfalz, Bavaria, Germany.

An 1805 book by “Herr v[on] Freygang” in the library of the royal imperial mineral collection in Vienna is entitled Gedanken über die Luftsteine. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt von einem Monds-Mineralienhandler (“Thoughts on meteorites. From the French Translation of a Lunar Mineral Dealer”). Could this be the same Freygang? His name appears nowhere in the usual references to late 19th-century German mineral dealers.
