Mineralogie Micrographique : Roches Eruptives Françaises [1879]

£180.00

Product description

Title translation: Micrographic Mineralogy: French Eruptive Rocks

Published in Paris in 1879 by Imprierie de A. Quantin. Text in French with 55 full page plates. Leather 5-banded spine, and corners. Marbled end papers.

Each plate shows two different cross sections of a range of minerals, many in colour.. The plates also have a sheet of transparent tissue that can be overlaid; with reference numbers and traced details to enable identification of the different minerals. The page of text facing explains the pictures. Although in French the text is fairly easy to follow with a basic knowledge of the language. An impressive work.

The covers are rubbed and worn, and the boards are darkened. The front end paper hinge is split causing the spine to be detached from the page block. However the binding itself is still sound and the pages are complete. In reasonable condition for a book of this age.
