Friedrich P. Springer:
About Christoph Traugott Delius

Christoph Traugott Delius was one of the most distinguished authorities in mining in the second half of the 18th century. His book "Anleitung zu der Bergbaukunst" written for lecturing at the Schemnitz Mining Academy was in use until the middle of the 19th century. On Delius himself little is known; information is spread around and frequently inconsistent. The paper intends to sort knowledge and add some details.
