British and Foreign Building Stones
Cambridge University Press, 21.05.2015 - 492 Seiten
Originally published in 1911, this book contains a list of the specimens of stones in the collection of the Sedgwick Museum in Cambridge that are suitable for use in construction. Watson prefaces the catalogue with descriptive notes on the various types of stone, their natural location and genesis, in language that is accessible to non-geologists. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of the Sedgwick Museum or the history of science.
