Notes
"In the book at hand, mineralogists Tagai Tokuhei (Prof. emer. of Tokyo University) and Dr. Lothar Schröpfer (Universität Frankfurt) try to reconstruct the "Mineralogia" that Siebold and Bürger could have written, based on the latters' notes and collections. ... In order to reach an international academic audience, Prof. Tagai and Dr. Schröpfer translated the text of the drafts into English, endeavouring to preserve the style of the German original by translating as literally as possible."--Unnumbered page 9.
