Intended as a book of reference for the geological student.
A scarce edition with thirteen copies held in libraries.
David Thomas Ansted was an English professor of geology. During his career, he taught at Addiscombe Military Seminary, where future East India Company officers were trained and therefore his teachers influenced the study of geology in British colonies at the time.
