Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Aspects of the Earth: A Popular Account of Some Familiar Geological Phenomena The greater part of the several essays contained in this volume have already been printed in Scribner s Magazine; the last chapter, that concerning soils, has not been before printed, and to the others considerable additions have been made since they were published. Something in the way of an apology is due from any writer who, in this day of excessive book-making, reprints papers which have appeared as occasional publications. It may be said in favor of the republication of these essays that, although not originally designed for a book, they were written with a distinct purpose and have a certain common quality. They were intended to give the general reader, unacquainted with the details of natural science, a comprehensible account of some of the more interesting series of the actions which affect the surface of the earth. For this purpose subjects have been selected which, from their nature, commend themselves to the attention of intelligent people. In treating these subjects an effort has been made to show the relation of natural forces to the fortunes of man, and thereby to secure, on the part of the reader, the interest which belongs to matters which affect human welfare alone.
