  • Additional Product Information

    First edition of the earliest geological account of Scotland. While a student at the University of Edinburgh, Boué (1794-1881), became interested in geology through the influence of his teacher, the mineralogist Robert Jameson. Boué’s rambles throughout Scotland allowed him to form his own conclusions as to the origin and age of the many igneous rocks of that country. This work contains much original information.

    “Boué “distinguished very exactly between basaltic sheets and dykes, and described the various volcanic rocks petrographically. Although a student of Jameson, he asscoaited himself more to Hutton.

    The essay is written in French.
