Principles of Geology 1951

1951 HC (11717-14 BO) vintage books, history


This book attempts to summarize some of the knowledge that geologists have won from the study of the earth.   A subject so large must be treated very briefly if it is to be presented between the covers of a single book.  The authors have chosen to concentrate on the analysis of processes that are at work upon and within the earth, rather than to present a catalog of descriptive facts and terms.  The authors felt that the student is entitled to know something of the kind of evidence on which geologic conclusions are based, even though its presentation takes valuable pages that might be used to put forth more facts.

Copyright 1951 this hardcover measures 9 1/2 x 6 1/2 x 1 1/2 (approx.) and contains 631 pages.  On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being 'like new' I rate the cover a 6+ and the inside pages 7+. 

(PLEASE READ: I’m elderly and can’t smell very well so I can’t tell if the previous owner was a smoker.  All books come from estate, tag or yard sales so I don't know if the previous owner was a smoker nor if they had an animal.  Selling as is.  Buy more than one item and save on postage.)
