About this book

Cornwall has long been one of the classic areas of British geology on account of the variety of its igneous and metamorphic rocks, and because of the wealth of its mineral deposits. This was one of the first parts of Britain, or indeed of any country, to be studied geologically in detail, and its main features were already known by the early part of the nineteenth century. Nevertheless, many important problems remain to be solved, and there is considerable scope for further investigation.
