This ebook is comprised of Hutton's 1788 paper 'Theory of the Earth', read before the Royal Society of Edinburgh, as well as Volumes 1 and 2 of his book of the same name. Although his books, filled with long quotes in French, make difficult reading, Hutton deserves to be better known as one of the makers of the modern view of the Earth.
This book has 646 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published 1788-1795.
Production notes: This ebook of Theory of the Earth was published by Global Grey in 2018.
