(no dust jacket) [solid book, moderate wear at extremities, minor spotting to covers, slight fraying to cloth at top front corner, ffep torn out but with no apparent weakening to binding; gilt lettering/decorations on front cover and spine still bright and attractive]. (Science for the Young) Series (engravings) Discussion of the fundamentals of geology, "prepared with special reference to the young, [and] written to a considerable extent in a narrative form," to provide "some substantial and thorough instruction in respect to the fundamental principles of the sciences treated of in the several volumes." The six-page section of advertisements in the rear of the book includes a listing for the two previous titles in the "Science for the Young" series, "Heat" and "Light," both issued in 1871; a subsequent (1873) volume dealt with "Force," and was apparently the final entry in the series.
