Description:

Edwin L. Hamilton. Sunken Islands of the Mid-Pacific Mountains. NY: The Geological Society of America, March 10, 1956, 1st. printing, viii, 97 pp. *** Hamilton attended Stanford University and graduated with a MS in paleontology, stratigraphy, and geomorphology in 1947. He was in invited to join the Mid-Pac Expedition, a joint venture of Scripps Oceanographic and the U.S. Navy. The goal was to study and map guyots (flat-topped seamounts) in the central Pacific west of Hawaii. This was one of the first modern studies of sea floor geography using what was then state-of-the-art technology. Besides developing accurate profiles of the Mid-Pacific Mountains a number of fossils were recovered from the depths. The fact that much of this submerged geography was deemed sunken islands lent credence to theories about lost sunken continents such as Mu or Lemuria. With a frontis. illustration, several diagrams in text, nine (9) plates with b&w photos of marine fossils, Appendices, and in back a pocket with four (4) folding bathyscaphic maps. *** Bound in maroon cloth covers with gilt lettering on the spine. The covers have light soil and wear. The contents are clean and complete in a good binding. The maps are in new condition. Owner's name on front free end paper. *** 10 inches tall by 6.5 inches.
