Rare. The text lists hundreds of minerals by class according to the classification described in Francis Alger's [1807-1863] edition of William Phillips' An Elementary Treatise on Mineralogy (Boston, 1844), with the locality of each specimen noted. Also included is a list of fossils. Presumably, this collection was lost in 1864, when during the Civil War, Georgia were pillaged.
