First Book of Geology – 1902


This is a charming little tome – more so because of Shaler’s writing. He says it is for ‘the use of beginners’ so here’s your chance to get to know geology! N. S Shaler studied under Louis Agassiz – he was Professor of paleontology at Harvard 1869-1888 and Professor of Geology 1888-1906. Shaler was well known, as well, for his extensive writings on the implications of the theory of evolution (yawn….). What is also interesting, this book has pages of advertisements in the back – actually quite fun to read them. These ‘conversational’ books are an easy read. Enjoy! – Dona
