Geology

Geology STUDENTS of Geology will welcome this third and much enlarged edition of Prof. Green's excellent text-book, though they may at first sight regret the exchange of the old convenient manual form of the book for that of the present handsome and well-printed octavo. One of the first features that strikes the reader in this new issue of the work is the large augmentations made to the lithological sections. In fact this part of the treatise may be said to have been re-cast and almost wholly re-written. The author devotes 150 closely printed pages to crystallography and the description of minerals. It may be open to question whether the full details which he gives to the crystallographic characters of minerals are not rather out of place in a geological treatise. They are not ample enough for the mineralogical student, and the geologist who takes up the subject must necessarily study text-books of mineralogy, where they are given at much greater length. Prof. Green, however, has put them so clearly and succinctly that this portion of his book cannot fail to be of use. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Springer Journals
