Excerpt from A Catalogue of Destructive Earthquakes, A. D. 7 to A. D. 1899
Although much time has been expended on the analyses of these catalogues it is not surprising to find that the outcome has been more suggestive than definitive, and but little has been learned.
The present Catalogue is an attempt to give a list of earthquakes which have announced changes of geological im portance in the earth's crust; movements which have probably resulted in the creation or extension of a line of fault, the vibrations accompanying which could, with preper instruments, have been recorded over a continent or the whole surface of our world. Small earthquakes have been excluded, while the number of large earthquakes both for ancient and modern times has been extended. As an illustration of exclusion, 1 may mention that between 1800 and 1808, which are years taken at random, I find in Mallet's catalogue 407 entries. Only 87 of these, which were accompanied by structural damage, have been retained. Other catalogues such as those of Perrey and Fuchs have been treated similarly.
