Extremely rare. In a work meant to be useful to mineral collectors, Krikende classifies the minerals and fossils according to Vogel's system as outlined in Practisches Mineralsystem (Leipzig, 1762). The species are arranged into classes and their subdivisions, and are printed in rows on one side of every page, so that they could be cut apart and affixed to the specimens. At the end are 4 leaves of numbers (1-1992) that could also be cut apart and afixed to specimens.
