Record #202683:

Études sur les glaciers / Louis Agassiz.

Title: Études sur les glaciers / Louis Agassiz.
Translated title: Studies on glaciers.
Author(s): Agassiz, Louis.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Language: French.
Abstract: Reissue of original book, which advances pioneering ice-age theory according to which glaciers are remaining portions of ice sheets which once covered earth. This is based on study of Swiss glaciers, including evidence left by former glaciers such as erratics, drumlins, and rock scouring, and undermines then-current theory that landscape features are result of great biblical flood.
Notes:

Originally published: Neuchatel: Jent et Gassmann, 1840.

Accompanying atlas of original plates not reissued.
