"This annotated bio-bibliography of mineralogy and crystallography is the work of the late Curtis Paul Schuh, prominent but largely unpublished mineralogical bibliographer."

Researchers can browse using the alphabetical or chronological author lists, but there is no search specific to this bibliography.

This website is built upon Schuh's "magnum opus, Mineralogy and Crystallography: An Annotated Biobibliography of Books 1469 to 1919-a massive compilation which occupied most of his spare time for the rest of his life. It remains unpublished in paper format, but Curtis prepared a final copy in html format just days before his death, so that the Mineralogical Record could post it on this website."
