This book deals with the basic principles and the general philosophies underlying geology, such as actualism and uniformitarianism, and the methods of absolute dating. A record of actual fossils and biogenic deposits as well as indications of early environment are treated in full. Although geology cannot prove the validity of the new biological conceptions of the origin of life through natural causes, the findings in this book are in complete agreement with the exigencies of these theories. 146pp. Index. Bibliography. Size: 8vo Large Post (8¼" x 5")
