Stanford's Geological Atlas of Great Britain and Ireland

Excerpt from Stanford's Geological Atlas of Great Britain and Ireland: With Plates of Characteristic Fossils Reynold's Geological Atlas has long been regarded as a useful companion and guide to those, journeying on business or pleasure in Great Britain, who take interest in the geology of the country. The first edition, issued in 1860, was prepared with the assistance of Professor John Morris; and the second edition, published in 1889, was revised by Mr. Robert Etheridge. In the present volume the general plan of the older work has been followed, but the text has been entirely re-written; fuller descriptions of the geological formations with lists of localities for fossils have been given; the particulars relating to each county have been amplified, regard being paid to the more interesting geological facts, irrespective of the size or industrial importance of the county, and notes on sea-side resorts have been appended; finally, descriptions of the geological features observable along the main lines of railway have been added. A few of the original text-illustrations have been retained; others have been borrowed from Sir Andrew C. Ramsay's Physical Geology and Geography of Great Britain. The figures of fossils are reproduced chiefly from Lowry's Tabular View of Characteristic British Fossils and from his Chart of Characteristic British Tertiary Fossils; others are taken from the Chart of Fossil Crustacea, arranged by Mr. J. W. Salter and Dr Henry Woodward, and a few are from Ramsay's Physical Geology. These illustrations will serve to indicate the forms of the leading fossils that are to be met with in our stratified formations.
