The Elements of Geology
by

Publisher: Ginn & company
ISBN/ASIN: B0006AE8QG
Number of pages: 461

Description:
The present work is the outcome of the need of a text-book of very simple outline, in which causes and their consequences should be knit together as closely as possible. The author has ventured to depart from the common usage which subdivides geology into a number of departments, -- dynamical, structural, physiographic, and historical, -- and to treat in immediate connection with each geological process the land forms and the rock structures which it has produced.
