Principles of Geology by Charles Lyell (1797 - 1875).

Principles of Geology: being an attempt to explain the former changes of the Earth's surface, by reference to causes now in operation is a book by the Scottish geologist Charles Lyell, first published in 3 volumes in 1830–1833.
<br><br>
Lyell used geology throughout as a basis to strengthen his argument for Uniformitarianism. He used geological proof to determine that the Earth was older than 6,000 years, as had been previously contested. The book shows that the processes that are occurring in the present are the same processes that occurred in the past. (Summary adapted from wikipedia)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/33224
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

I can do the preface, but that's all I can commit to at the moment.

Wow, this is massive! :shock: Great find though!

I'd like to do the chapters involving climate. As far as I can see, that's

chapters 6 - 8 (sections 13 - 18) and
chapter 42 (sections 93, 94).


Goodness, what's wrong with me? Everytime I come online, I feel like a kid in a candy store... I want them all! :roll:
Cheers,
Ava.

It is massive! It took me forever to split these chapters up, but I finally got them done!

I knew I would tempt you! I love listening to, and reading, these old science books! Too much fun! OK, sections 13-18, 93 and 94 are all yours, thanks Ava!
