About This Item

Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2008. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Very close to new copy. Tiny amount of shelf wear and feels unread. The first detailed account of the reconstruction of prehuman history of the earth, Martin J. S. Rudwick's "Worlds Before Adam" picks up where his celebrated "Bursting the Limits of Time" leaves off. Rudwick takes readers from the post-Napoleonic Restoration in Europe to the early years of Britain's Victorian age, chronicling the staggering discoveries geologists made during the period. Ultimately, Rudwick reveals geology to be the first of the sciences to investigate the historical dimension of nature, a model that Charles Darwin used in developing his evolutionary theory. 2.1kg for outside NZ
