Abstract and Figures

As it was usual at the time for naturalists, Pál Kitaibel (1757–1817) was involved in the study of all three ‘realms’ of natural history (mineralogy, botany, zoology) to a certain extent. Mineralogy then embraced every field of earth science and Kitaibel studied it as part of his general descriptive (physiographic) work and as a tool subject for his other (chemical, hydrographical and botanical) lines of investigations. Accordingly, his mineralogical studies were mostly done within the fields of mineral chemistry, topographic mineralogy and petrography. However, most of his results remained in manuscript. During his field expeditions within the Kingdom of Hungary, Croatia and Slavonia, he collected a number of mineral and rock specimens and he received many as a present, mainly from Slavonia. An autograph partial catalogue of these specimens was preserved, which we present in the appendix of this paper in a transliterated version.
