About this title


This encyclopaedic dictionary covers the whole field of physical geography including geomorphology, climatology, biogeography, zoogeography, hydrology, pedology and the Quarternary. It contains over 2000 entries ranging in length from succinct definitions of technical terms to extended discussions of concepts and self-contained essays on themes of particular interest or importance. The dictionary has been planned and fully edited by a distinguished editorial board and the entries have been written by an international team of some 50 leading geographers.

From Library Journal:

With many line and photo illustrations, this is an excellent reference for a subject having few dictionaries. In Britian, physical geography includes more of geomorphology and biology than is found in American usage, so a clear bias comes through. Terms from meteorology, soil science, hydrology, etc. are here, too, in the "over 2000 entries." The definitions are quite adequate and the work seems much superior to W. G. Moore's A Dictionary of Geography (Penguin, 1963 and Barnes & Noble, 1968), the only other such dictionary listed in Books in Print. The index is fairly complete but it does not, for example, take one from groin (U.S.) to groyne. A fine work for larger libraries but remember that familiarity with British usage will definitely help. R.G. Schipf, Univ. of Montana Lib.

Store Description

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
