About this Item

A superb copy, tight, clean and bright. Spine is leather. Boards are marbled paper covered with small leather corners. Marbled page ends. A real collector's edition. My German is poor but I believe this is the third printing (or volume three) of Cotta's classic. All german text. Cotta (1808-1879) was a geology professor at the famed Freiberg school for geology and mining. This text examines origins of rocks, mostly sediments but touches on Vocanic origins and includes age of deposits from a Darwin view. The center section has some very mild page wrinkles (no creases) at the top. A few tables and only one drawing of some snail evolution. two minor scratches on the front. 455 pages of one of the earliest geology texts. A rarity in the US in original german. A nice frontice engraving of Cotta. Looks like Mark Twain but maybe it is just a statement of the times, with the cravat and hair and mustache. Bookseller Inventory # 10360
