Hardback large quarto, no jacket as issued, very good condition, pictorial cover, figures (including text-photos & maps), tables, minor edgewear, owner's written name. Heavy (1.1 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. 256 pp. Part of a conservation series that describes localities being considered for notification as "Sites of Special Scientific Interest" (SSSI). Southwest England (Devon to Cornwall) has been renowned for centuries for both the splendour of its scenery, and the richness of its mineral resources, such as tin, china clay and building stones. Both aspects owe much to the igneous rocks that characterize the area-part of the Variscan foldbelt of northern Europe.
Very Good. This volume illustrates some of the significant aspects of magmatic activity from Devonian (408 million years ago) to early Permian (270 million years ago) times in SW England. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. Geological Conservation Review Series, 5.
