Geology and mineralogy considered with reference to natural theology by William Buckland( Book )

115 editions published between 1836 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classic geological and palaeontological textbook, from William Buckland, the first professor for Geology in Oxford and this is the first American edition which had a great influence in the US! Buckland's importance lay "in helping to redefine the nature and method of a geological explanation. Buckland and other geologists wished to produce detailed explanations that would in effect constitute a geological history, period by period, of the events of a given locality. Buckland was thus one of the men, perhaps the ablest and probably the most acute, who built a typically "British" geology, based on careful local stratigraphy and local dynamic explanations but revivified by the addition of fossil evidence". - DSB II, p.567-68
Reliquiæ diluvianæ : or, Observations on the organic remains contained in caves, fissures, and diluvial gravel and on other geological phenomena attesting the action of a universal deluge by William Buckland( Book )

50 editions published between 1823 and 2011 in English and Latin and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Buckland (1784–1856), Dean of Westminster, was an English geologist best known for his contributions to palaeontology. He became the first Reader in Geology at the University of Oxford in 1818. Buckland spent 1819–1822 investigating fossil remains in caves, in order to refine his concept of catastrophism. His research led him to the realisation that hyena remains in Kirkland Cave, Yorkshire, were the remains of an ancient ecosystem and were not relics of the Flood; this led to his being awarded the Copley Medal by the Royal Society of London in 1822. This volume, first published in 1823, contains a full account of Buckland's influential research in Kirkland Cave, which demonstrated for the first time the ability of scientific analysis to reconstruct events from deep time. Buckland's support for and influential revision of the concept of catastrophism is also illustrated in this volume
Journal of an embassy from the governor general of India to the court of Ava by John Crawfurd( Book )

15 editions published between 1829 and 2012 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After studying medicine at Edinburgh, John Crawfurd (1783-1868) joined the medical service of the East India Company. While posted at Penang, he studied the Malay language and culture and became an expert in Eastern affairs. His talent was recognised by the British Government, which entrusted to him both administrative and diplomatic responsibilities. He was sent as an envoy on many missions, most notably to the Court of Siam (Thailand) where his efforts led to a possibility of opening up the diplomatic relations between the two countries, troubled since the seventeenth century. In 1827, he was sent on his last diplomatic assignment in the service of the East India Company, to the Court of Ava (then the capital of present-day Myanmar (Burma)). This 1829 work describes his experiences at Ava, and provided a reference source for subsequent missions. The appendix contains several relevant official communiqués
