Principles of Stratigraphy

by Amadeus W. Grabau

A massive, amazingly exhaustive, manual on the science of geology, which will be found to be of great use to the student and the professional. From the various layers of the Earth and their description, to the hydrosphere, from the morphology and structure of organic rocks to the composition of the various spring waters, this is an exceptional guide to the science of the Earth. Complete with many tables, illustrated with numerous black & white diagrams which give insight and understanding of the scientific text, this is an invaluable volume to have at hand for the geology student and professional, as well as a fascinating armchair book for the amateur geologist. 1185 pages. 6.5 x 9.75 inches.

FIRST, Signed and Inscribed Edition. Contains many tables and diagrams. Includes a preface, a bibliography and an index.
