The first major contribution towards the Geology of Tasmania

B.M.(N.H.) V, 2074; Ferguson 10968. The first major contribution towards the Geology of Tasmania. A beautifully produced monograph published by the Authority of the Government. "While the scientific aspect has not been neglected, a great portion of the work is devoted to the description of our rocks containing tin, gold, coal, and other valuable products ... I trust the work may be of practical service to all who are engaged in the development of the important mineral resources of the Colony" (From the Introduction). A fine copy of this scarce work.
