IN writing this volume I have not had any intention of attempt ing to add another to the text-books of geology in the English language. Of these there is already an ample supply. Sir A. Geikie's Text-book of Geology, Professor Prestwich's Geology, and the edition of Phillips' Manual of Geology by Professor H. G. Seeley and Mr. R. Etheridge leave no gap to be filled among works of larger size, while a student not yet ripe for these has ample choice among books on smaller scale, which can be arranged in a graduated series from Mr. Jukes-browne's Handbook to the most elementary Primer.
