INTRODUCTORY TEXT-BOOK OF GEOLOGY.

"Of late it has not often been our good fortune to examine a text-book on science of which we could express an opinion so entirely favourable as we are enabled to do of Mr Page's little work."-Athenæum.
ADVANCED TEXT-BOOK OF GEOLOGY,
DESCRIPTIVE AND INDUSTRIAL.
With Engravings and Glossary of Scientific Terms.
Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged, price 6s.
"An admirable book on Geology. It is from no invidious desire to underrate other works
"It is therefore with unfeigned pleasure that we record our appreciation of his 'Advanced Text-Book of Geology.' We have carefully read this truly satisfactory book, and do not hesitate to say that it is an excellent compendium of the great facts of Geology, and written in a truthful and philosophic spirit."-Edinburgh Philosophical Journal.
THE GEOLOGICAL EXAMINATOR.
A Progressive Series of Questions adapted to the Introductory and Advanced Text-Books
"Every science, like every manual art, must have its own technicalities and modes of expression new objects require new names, and new facts new phrases to express their relations. There is no avoiding this necessity in any progressive branch of human knowledge; and the only thing that can be done to lessen the difficulty-next to the rigid exclusion of whatever seems superfluous-is to explain these terms in brief and simple language. This I have endeavoured to do, chiefly with a view to the requirements of the general reader, at the same time appending such details as might render the volume an acceptable Handbook of Reference to the student and professed Geologist."—Author's Preface.
