About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1916, this book contains a condensed account of the geology of the Lake District and how geology has influenced its visible features. The text is illustrated with a number of drawings and photographs showing significant geological structures, and points of interest to the trained geologist are printed in smaller type to allow non-specialist readers to skip remarks containing more than the usual amount of scientific discussion. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of geology.
