About this Item

xlvii, 827, 19, x, 64, xiii, 134 pages; woodcuts; brown cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine. James D. Dana (1813-1895) was an American mineralogist, volcanologist, and zoologist. He served on the Wilkes Expedition in the Pacific Ocean between 1838 and 1842. With periodic updates the text has served as the college course text for the last century. Lacking perhaps a second blank front end paper, otherwise a very good clean copy with no fading. Bookseller Inventory # 14631
