A German Professor of Mineralogy and Metallurgy; Schnabel published several textbooks and laboratory manuals on chemistry, metallurgy and crystallography. The above work was intended for use by his students as a laboratory reference manual for recognizing chemical and metallurgical reactions. The text is a printed rendering of Schnabel's handwritten notes, reaction formulas etc. Since the work was put to the use intended any copy is rare and one in very good condition is quite rare.
