About this Item

Modern binding in brown leatherette boards, gilt lettering on spine. Heavily illustrated with 3 B/W lithographs plus engravings, diagrams, etc. SCARCE. "Josiah Dwight Whitney (November 23, 1819 - August 15, 1896) was an American geologist, professor of geology at Harvard University (from 1865), and chief of the California Geological Survey (1860-1874). In 1847 he and John Wells Foster were hired to assist Charles T. Jackson in making a federal survey of the Lake Superior land district of northern Michigan, which was about to become a major copper and iron mining region. When Jackson was dismissed from the survey, Foster and Whitney completed it in 1850 and the final report was published under their names. Building on this experience Whitney became a mining consultant and eventually wrote the book, 'Metallic Wealth of the United States' (1854). It was considered to be the standard reference for the next 15 years. During the 1850s Whitney participated in geological surveys of Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.". Ex-library with minimal markings. Pieces missing from top and bottom of spine, does not effect title. The text is clean and unmarked. Bookseller Inventory # 002706
