(1807? – ?)

1. English, 1847.
List of Minerals, in the Cabinet of the University of Georgia, 1847. Arranged in Accordance with Alger's Philips' Manual, by Prof. James Jackson. Athens [Ga.], Published by Order of the Board of Trustees [Southern Banner Print], 1847.

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.
