Very rare. This is the printed catalog of Gustav Wilhelm Bergemann's [see note below] mineral collection, giving highly detailed descriptions of the specimens. The collection was at the time located in Berlin, but is now lost? The first section describes the hand-sized specimens, while the later describes the larger ones.

Gustav Wilhelm Bergemann. German pharmacist & mineral collector. Bergemann was a very successful pharmacist in Berlin. As a hobby he built a superior mineral collection that represented different localities of each mineral species. This cabinet was known as one of the finest of its time. It was acquired by Berlin's Humbolt University in 1837 after Bergemann's death.
