Horblit 52b; Norman 1717. FIRST EDITION. Landmark book in the development of the science of geology. "Playfair, a professor of mathematics at the University of Edinburgh and a friend of James Hutton, revised Hutton's Theory of the Earth to present his case more precisely, with additional evidence and without Hutton's religious ideas. Although Playfair's primary works were in mathematics and physics, he added substantially to the sum of geological knowledge of his time." (Norman). - Visit our website to see more images!
