About this Item

Boston, octavo, [x], [11]-134, [1] p. ***Content: This classic treatise evaluates the ideas of leading geologists regarding the structure and origin of mountains. Chapters discuss the theories of Werner, Hutton, Agassiz, Lyell, Dana, Murchison, Hitchcock, James Hall, the brothers Rogers, and many others, noting both strengths and weaknesses, physical and geological. Topics include metamorphism, the origin of sedimentary rocks, intrusions and basalt, the nature of granite, cleavage and foliation, etc. ***Condition: This is a Good copy in the original textured brown cloth, with a gilt-lettered backstrip. There is wear to the corners and chipping to the outer joints, but the covers are sound and the spine lettering is largely complete, bold and bright. Hinges tender but holding, binding very firm. The text pages are pristine: fresh, clean and bright. The only evidence of previous ownership is an old paper label on the front pastedown. A useful copy of a very scarce work. Nickles 1056. Not in BMNH. International shipping will be extra, but only at my cost. Bookseller Inventory # OG5126
