I would be very grateful if anybody in the list could provide
me with suggestions or bibliographical references for Johannes
Kepler's Strena, seu De nive sexangula, 1611.

There are annotated English and German translations:

The six-cornered snowflake
[edited and translated from the Latin by Colin Hardie,
with essays by L. L. Whyte and B. F. J. Mason].
Oxford : Clarendon Press, 1966.

Kepler, Johannes, 1571-1630.
Vom sechseckigen Schnee = Strena, seu, De nive sexangula
ins Deutsche uebertragen, eingeleitet und mit Anmerkungen versehen
von Dorothea Goetz.
Leipzig : Geest & Portig, 1987.
