The New Geology

While I was putting together the last-but-one post below I did some searches on relevant terms, and found two copies of George McCready Price's masterpiece The New Geology advertised on AbeBooks. One, still there, was offered for £220.90. The other was £15 from an Oxfam shop in England. I ordered the book and it arrived the following day - well done, Oxfam! It's a beautiful volume: solidly bound, profusely illustrated, clearly and persuasively written. It was long ago demolished with a few taps of the hammer by J. Laurence Kulp.
