About this Item

Albany, octavo, viii, [9]-63, [1] p., and 5 full-page woodcuts in the text. ***Content: As Eaton notes in the preface, this treatise is the product of fifteen years of labor and more than seventeen thousand miles of personal travel collecting geological data and specimens. The text describes earth structure and the various rock types, strata, and soils encountered in the northeast U.S. The map referred to in the text was separately issued, and is not here present. ***Condition: A VG copy, lacking covers, but with original endpapers. The text pages are well preserved and are typically fresh, clean and bright, with only some light scattered foxing and corner browning to the last few pages. The sewing and binding are firm. The text figures are handsome. No previous ownership indications, save for a "6" inked on the title page. A sound copy of a very scarce treatise worthy of binding. Hazen 3361. Ward and Carozzi 717. Merrill, 1924, p. 127-131. Not in BMNH. Bookseller Inventory # OG5073
