The Remaining volumes are in contemporary paper covered boards with gilt spine labels. Professional restoration to one spine area. Over all a very good partial set of an important early journal.
 
This early important journal was edited by Alexander Wilhelm Köhler ( 1756-1832) who was an instructor at the Freiberg Bergakademie. The journal was based in Freiberg and became an important mineralogical and metallurgical journal. Being published in the home city of the Bergakademie, many articles came from the leading German mineralogists of the period, including early publications of A. von Humbolt, C.A.S. Hoffmann, D.L.G. Karsten, M.H. Klaproth, and A.G. Werner. The journal is quite rare and seldom seen in complete runs. A complete run is in six volumes each in twelve issues. It was continued as "Neues Bergmännisches Journal", which was published irregularly through 1815.
