Could any (? German) colleague help me in my query of the amber
("bernstein") collection of Andreas Johann RETZIUS (1742-1821) which
was told to have been deposited (after his death) in the Chemisch Institut
in Greifswald, (ex-East) Germany? I would be interested in examining
a sample containing "Termes und Ceraphron". The preceding data were
found in a very rare review: Isis von Oken, 1831, column "2000" (recte
"1100", following "1099"). I have not even the address of the mentioned
insitute, nor know whether it is still in existence.
Many thanks in advance.
