Die Versteinerungen des Steinkohlengebirges von Wettin und Löbejün im Saalkreise
This book by Germar (1786-1853), a professor of mineralogy at the University of Halle and the director of its mineralogical cabinet/museum, focuses on fossils discovered in Saxony, constituting some of the earliest fossil material described in Europe. It is of considerable importance to paleobiology, as the plant and animal taxa described in it are the basis of species, genus, and family names in modern paleoentomology and paleobotany.
