About this book

A reprint of a classical work in the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature series.

Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. The Natural History of Coal by E. A. Newell Arber was first published in 1910.

The Natural History of Coal presents a variety of information on the geology and paleobotany of coal. It remains a highly readable work that sheds light on the understanding of coal at the time of publication.
