Henry De la Beche (1796-1855) was a geologist who published widely on various aspects of this science and was elected to the Royal Society in 1823. He was involved with the Ordnance Survey maps of Britain, and became president of the Geological Society in 1847. De la Beche was also instrumental in the 1851 opening of two influential institutions: the Museum of Practical Geology and the School of Mines and of Science Applied to the Arts, which were housed on the same site in London. His Geological Manual, first published in 1831, also had French, German and US editions. In this expanded third edition, published in 1833, the work offers a comprehensive survey of multiple aspects of geology. Topics covered include an overview of the Earth, rivers, glaciers, rock types and fossils in France and England, demonstrating the range and depth of geological knowledge in the early nineteenth century
Researches in theoretical geology by Henry T De La Beche( Book )

27 editions published between 1834 and 2014 in English and French and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The geologist Sir Henry Thomas De la Beche (1796-1855) made important contributions as both a surveyor and a theorist. Elected to the Royal Society in 1823, he mapped geological strata in Devon during the 1830s and became the founding director of the British Geological Survey, the world's first national geological survey. In 1847, he was elected president of the Geological Society of London. Reflecting the scope of his scientific knowledge, the present work covers a wide range of topics, including the density of planets, the mineralisation of organic remains, and what could be inferred from the fossils thus created. The book was first published in 1834, the year he became embroiled in an argument with his contemporary Roderick Murchison. Lasting several years, the dispute became known as the 'The Great Devonian Controversy'. De la Beche's Geological Manual (third edition, 1833) has also been reissued in this series
