A German mineralogist, Blum (1802 - 1883) was a professor of mineralogy at the University of Heidelberg and also the director of that institutions mineral collection. He wrote several important works on mineralogy and is best remembered for his work on pseudomorphs.?Lehrbuch der Oryktognosie is Blum's popular textbook of mineralogy, which would go through four editions to 1874. Blum provides basic information about mineralogical subjects in a well written style, that no doubt helped to introduce a complex subject to many students. Although some theoretical material is covered, Blum concentrates on the practical aspects of the science, deriving his text from Kobell's Charakteristik der Mineralien, Naumann's Mineralogie and Leonhard's {Oryktognosie}.
