Pp. x, 358; 2 color plates, 140 text-figures. Publisher’s original dark blue cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, green and blue printed dust jacket, 8vo. “Evidence from palaeomagnetism of continental rocks was so compelling that it led to the hypothesis of sea-floor spreading, a concept which suggested the mechanism for continental drift” (from the preface). This classic work, by one of the founders in the field, presents the background research for palaeomagnetism and its relationship to plate tectonics. In the Cambridge Earth Sciences Series. From the library of Henry Beltay of the U.S.G.S. with his signature on the front endpaper.
