About this Item

#4145 - "Geological History of Southern Africa" BY S. H. Haughton.The author resided and worked in South Africa from 1911 on, first undertaking research on South African fossils, and particularly on vertebrates from the Karroo system, his appointment to the Geological Survey of South Africa in 1920. The dust jkt. is worn and frayed around the edges - still in Good++ shape. Cover is dark blue leather bonded to paper. Printing on the spine is in gilt. Minor indentations in the leather along the edges and the owner's name stamped in front and back are main flaws. What makes this copy more unique is that the pages have been sewn by hand to the spine - not glued. Hence, the spine cannot crack from age. Pages will not pull out easily. In the very back of the book is a large fold-out map titled "Geological Map of Southern Africa". Considering the fact that the author moved to South Africa in 1911, a tremendous amount of history is presented. Bookseller Inventory # 004145
