FIRST SEPARATE EDITION. Taking advantage of the publication of the third edition of his ossements fossiles, G. Cuvier revised, corrected and increased his Discourse on the Revolutions of the Surface of the Globe and, at the request of many readers, had it printed separately. In this speech, which was a great success, Cuvier exposes his ideas on the cataclysms which upset the earth in the past, and in particular on the last, which coincides with the biblical deluge. The engravings show various fossilized skeleton finds, as well as the reconstruction of an Egyptian ibis. - Visit our website to see more images!
