Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from Manual of Geology: Treating of the Principles of the Science With Special Reference to American Geological History, for the Use of Colleges, Academies, and Schools of Science The Brief Synopsis of Appendix K. Is intended to facilitate the use of this Manual as a recitation-book. Lectures cannot well be wholly dispensed with in the instruction of Natural or Physical Science; but, with a work so full of illustrations as this, they may, with great advantage, be altogether subordinate to recitations, espe cially if the latter are accompanied with an exhibition of speci mens. Through the use of fine type for the details of the Science, the Manual is made to combine in one a small and a large book. The topics presented in the Synopsis are, with few exceptions, those of the former; and they are so prepared that each suggests a question. A cursory perusal of the details in the smaller type is, however, to be advised, as it will aid the student in acquiring precise ideas. Even in scientific schools it may be best that the student first go through the Manual with the Synopsis, and then, in a second course, take up the Palaeontology and Dynamics with greater thoroughness. Every Academy or other Institution teaching the Science should have, at least, a small collection of specimens. Even twenty-five dollars will purchase one (of Louis Seemann, Paris, 45 Rue St. Andre des-arts, or of Dr. A. Krantz, at Bonn on the Rhine) containing specimens of nearly all the mineral species mentioned in the Manual, and of the more common kinds of rocks, and another twenty-five dollars, a collection of fossils that would be of great service. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 816 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.6in.Excerpt from Manual of Geology: Treating of the Principles of the Science With Special Reference to American Geological History, for the Use of Colleges, Academies, and Schools of ScienceTwo reasons have led the author to give this manual its American character: a desire to adapt it to the wants of American students, and a belief that, on account of a peculiar simplicity and unity, American Geological History affords the best basis for a text-book of the science. North America stands alone in the ocean, a simple isolated specimen of a continent (even South America lying to the eastward of its meridians), and the laws of progress have been undisturbed by the conflicting movements of other lands. The author has, therefore, written out American Geology by itself, as a continuous history. Facts have, however, been added from other continents so far as was required to give completeness to the work and exhibit strongly the comprehensiveness of its principles. It has been the authors aim to present, for study, not a series of rocks with their dead fossils, but the successive phases in the history of the earth, - its continents, seas, climates, life, and the various operations in progress. Dynamical Geology, contrary to the views of some geologists, has been placed after the stratigraphical or historical portion. It will, however, be found that through the latter the facts have been followed by statements and explanations of principles; so that the student, on reaching the pages treating of Geological Causes, will have already learned much of what they contain. As many readers may not be familiar with Zoology, a review of the classification of animals, with many illustrations, has been given before entering upon the Dynamical History of the ancient life of the world.
