Descripción

8vo., First Edition thus, with a large folding coloured map as frontispiece and several engraved diagrams and plans in the text; endpapers [only] mildly spotted; original half calf, red cloth boards, neatly rebacked in calf to style, red sprinkled edges, a remarkably well-preserved, bright, clean copy. Appendices include A Catalogue of Organic Remains from the Glacial Deposits of Scotland, and a List of Papers relating to the Glacial Phenomena of Scotland. FREDERICK FOOT'S COPY WITH HIS SIGNATURE AND INSCRIPTION ['GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, BOYLE, OCTOBER 1 1865'].ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER. The first paper in the first volume of the Transactions of the Glasgow Geological Society and an important complement to the work of Jamieson. Pre-eminent among British geologists, Geikie remains the only one to have been appointed President of the Royal Society (1908-1912). Frederick J Foot FRGS, noted geologist and surveyor, worked principally on behalf of the Geological Survey in Scotland and Ireland. Author of many technical and scientific papers, he worked with Geikie and it is not impossible that this copy was presented to him by the author. A career of considerable promise was cut short when he lost his life attempting to rescue two skaters who had fallen through ice on Lough Kay, near his geological station at Boyle.
