A lovely book on geology by the lady scientist who also wrote Sun, Moon and Stars astronomy, Agnes Giberne

It also has a lovely deep red prize binding, given to Ernestine Wells for 90% in Arithmatic. She came joint 4th at Aske's Hatcham School for Girls.
The book covers:

Part One
How to Read the Record
including
What the Earth's Crust is Made of ~ Fire-Built Rocks ~ Rock Bending ~ Ice Works and etc.

Part Two
A Story of Olden Days
incuding
Earliest ages ~ The Age of Fishes ~ The age of Coal ~ The Age of Mammals ~ The Age of Ice and etc

Part Three
The Past in Light of the Present
including
Rivers ~ Deltas ~ Glaciers ~ Hot Springs ~ Stalactite and etc.

A rather poignant and nostalgic book, in that things that Agnes Giberne would have felt eternal, such as the Greenland glaciers have now disappeared for ever ... and so quickly ... in 100 years.

But a beautiful and fascinating book with charming illustrations - and there for all to enjoy

16 plates in all - 8 black and white, 8 coloured lithographs
nice marbled edges
calf leather binding
marbled endpapers.
7 1/2 by 5 inches
315 pages

A little shelf wear and some sporadic foxing - all in all lovely.
