About this book

Originally published in 1916, The Geology of the Lake District contains a condensed account of the geology of the Lake District and how geology has influenced its visible features. The text is illustrated with a number of drawings and photographs showing significant geological structures, and points of interest to the trained geologist are printed in smaller type to allow non-specialist readers to skip remarks containing more than the usual amount of scientific discussion. The Geology of the Lake District will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of geology.
