BY

JOHN MACCULLOCH

IN THREE VOLUMES


LONDON:

PRINTED FOR ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE AND CO. EDINBURGH

AND HURST, ROBINSON, AND CO. CHEAPSIDE, LONDON.

1819

*****

DESCRIPTION: Half morocco leather. VOL I: 8vo, 2 leaves of adverts, xv,587pp, VOL II: 8vo, vii, 589pp, VOL III (atlas): 4to 91pp (33 plates (one coloured-[XXIX]), including frontis and 10 hand-coloured maps - some folding). COMPLETE.

CONDITION: VERY GOOD+. An excellent set of a work that is hard to find complete. Recent leather binding is excellent.  Bindings tight and square. No previous names. A few smudges.  Some foxing, to the end of VOL II and to some plates in VOL III, but nothing too awful.  The worst affected plate is XXXIII(33) - see photo below.  Majority of text and maps, very clean.  There are no other complete sets, in any binding, in commerce at present that I am aware of.  The atlas volume is often broken up for its maps and plates and the two text volumes often appear without it.

*****************

John MacCulloch (1773 – 1835) was a Scottish geologist, descended from the MacCullochs of Nether Ardwell in Galloway. Having displayed remarkable powers as a boy, he was sent to study medicine in the university of Edinburgh, where he qualified as MD. in 1793, and then entered the army as assistant surgeon. Attaching himself to the artillery, he became chemist to the board of ordnance (1803). He still continued, however, to practise for a time as a physician, and during the years 1807-1811 he resided at Blackheath. In 1811 he communicated his first papers to the Geological Society of London. They were devoted to an elucidation of the geological structure of Guernsey, of the Channel Islands, and of Heligoland.

Comparatively little had been done in the investigation of Scottish geology in the early 19th century, and finding that field so full of promise, MacCulloch devoted himself to its cultivation with great ardour. One of his most important labours was the examination of the whole range of islands along the west of Scotland, at that time not easily visited, and presenting many obstacles to a scientific explorer. The results of this survey appeared (1819) in the present work, which forms one of the classical treatises on British geology.

He was elected F.R.S. in 1820. He continued to write papers, chiefly on the rocks and minerals of Scotland, and had at last gathered so large an amount of information that the government was prevailed upon in the year 1826 to employ him in the preparation of a geological map of Scotland. From that date up to the time of his death he returned each summer to Scotland and traversed every district of the kingdom, inserting the geological features upon Arrowsmith's map, the only one then available for his purpose. He completed the field-work in 1832, and in 1834 his map and memoir were ready for publication, but these were not issued until 1836, the year after he died.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
By submitting your bid, you'll be contractually committing to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder.
