Reference work by Emmanuel de Margerie, author of many geological and geomorphological studies, that lists bibliographies that are published on geology, mineralogy and natural history in general. He divides them into two main sections, namely more general bibliographies and the more regional bibliographies, for example for Germany, Italy or France, but also Asia, Africa and the Americas. This catalogue is even nowadays still of value.
With the bookplate of William P. Wreden (1910-1995) on the front pastedown. First few leaves a little loose, otherwise a hard cover copy of Margerie's bibliography in good condition. DSB IX, p. 103.
