 A very scarce copy of this story of Transylvania University in its golden age (1799-1859), when it harbored a remarkable group of naturalists, contributed original doctrines in medicine, science and philosophy, and was a bright center of Enlightenment in America. The selective bibliography represents the significant published and unpublished writings of Transylvania naturalists, some studies of their work by contemporary scholars, and some sources relevant to the background of natural philosophy.
