The old British Library catalog says that the author was a Professor in the Polytechnic School of Carlsruhe, Germany who wrote on Chemistry. Others have said the name is a pseudonym. There is no evidence of a German publication, but Gibbs-Smith assumes that it was written in German and translated for publication by S. D. Dawlish, the author of the “Preface” to the original edition.
