Recherches sur quelques-unes des révolutions de la surface du globe : présentant différens exemples de coïncidence entre le redressement des couches de certains systèmes de montagnes, et les changemens soudains qui ont produit les lignes de démarcation qu'on observe entre certains étages consécutifs des terrains de sédiment.

Octavo, with anarchic pagination (but 313 pages), as the text issues from a periodical publication:

Mémoire lu par extrait à l'Académie des Sciences, le 22 juin, 1829." -- title page
"Extrait des Annales des sciences naturelles, années 1829 et 1830." -- title page
Includes bibliographical references.The text is complete as issued.

There are five plates: one coloured folding map and four plates, one coloured and folding.

Jean-Baptiste Armand Louis Léonce Élie de Beaumont ( 1798 – 1874) was a French geologist. He built a reputation to match the name: in 1835 he was appointed professor of geology at the École des Mines. He held the office of engineer-in-chief of mines in France from 1833 until 1847, when he was appointed inspector-general; and in 1861 he became a grand officer of the Legion of Honour. His growing scientific reputation secured his election to the membership of the French Academy of Sciences, of the Royal Society of London and as a foreign member to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (1848).

Élie de Beaumont's name is widely known to geologists in connection with his theory of the origin of mountain ranges.

Here is the very scarce book first issue of that important text. Lovely polished calf binding.

    Het aangeboden boek mist 22 (!) pagina's. Deze omissie was niet in de beschrijving vermeld. Het is ongeloofwaardig dat de verkoper (dr. nota bene) dit niet opgemerkt heeft !!!

    I have apologised fully to the buyer and without argument provided a 100% refund including shipping. I find the comment a little harsh, but accept -- as I informed the buyer -- that the mistake was mine. It was of course unintentional. Michael
