Title Siegfried, oder kurze Biographie des Verstandes bis auf den Zwist mit seinen Kindern; in einer nach dem Leben gewählten Darstellung.
Publisher Munich München I J Lentner
Date 1812
Book ID 37520
First Edition  


Original publisher’s blue wrappers untrimmed, neatly re-backed with label to spine and new end-papers. 8vo., 144 pp.. In very good condition, new end-papers and spine unobtrusive. The present volume is possibly the only work of literature by Baron Franz von Paula Gruithuisen (1774 - 1852). Better known as a physician and as an astronomer, his contributions to weather-forecasting and the understanding of sun-spots were far-reaching. As a medical man, he was also noted for his work in urology and lithotripsy. However, his hypotheses about the inhabitants of the moon and how to correspond to them, subjected him to ridicule.
