Catalogue Note

The great Austrian mineralogist Haidinger (1795-1871) acknowledges receipt of books sent to the Jahrbuch of the Vienna KK Geologische Reichsanstalt, of which he was the editor, and director of the institute. Dana (1813-1895), the American geologist and mineralogist, was Silliman Professor of Natural History and Geology at Yale College when he sent the listed books, including a work on the eruption of Mauna Loa.
