Darwin, C. (n.d.). Geological Observations on Volcanic Islandsq. Retrieved from http://cn.ebooklibrary.org/

Excerpt: Although in some respects more technical in their subjects and style than Darwin?s ?Journal,? the books here reprinted will never lose their value and interest for the originality of the observations they contain. Many parts of them are admirably adapted for giving an insight into problems regarding the structure and changes of the earth?s surface, and in fact they form a charming introduction to physical geology and physiography in their application to special domains. The books themselves cannot be obtained for many times the price of the present volume, and both the general reader, who desires to know more of Darwin?s work, and the student of geology, who naturally wishes to know how a master mind reasoned on most important geological subjects, will be glad of the opportunity of possessing them in a convenient and cheap form.
