Demy 8vo., 327 pp. with 37 illustrations, a Geological Map of the District, and an Appendix, bringing the subject in all its details to the end of 1896, cloth 1897 Thirty-four years have elapsed since the First Edition of this work was published. Geology has made great advances since 1863, and a large amount of information has been obtained relating to the Stratified Rocks and Superficial Deposits around Liverpool. Continuous observations over the country, sections from tunnels, shafts, and borings have added considerably to our knowledge of the Subdivisions of the Carboniferous Limestone, Cefn-y-Fedw Sandstone, Millstone Grit, Coal Measures, Trias, Glacial and Recent Deposits. The latest results of microscopical investigations are given, and lists of the the Fossils from each Geological Formation render the work of importance to geologists.

286

The Appendix contains a Geological Map of the District on the scale of one inch to the mile, and a list of papers on local Geology; recent observations on Permian fossils, Triassic footprints, and Glacial striæ are recorded; and three Papers read at the recent Meeting of the British Association in Liverpool are given in extenso.
