Excerpt from A Handy-Book of Rock Names: With Brief Descriptions of the Rocks
I would wish to impress on my readers that this book has been written as a reference for surveyors and students while engaged in the field. Should they desire a perfect knowledge of rocks, they must study the various papers and works of the different eminent Petrologists. The work, necessarily, is far from perfect still I hope it may be of some small use or help to learners of Geology.
