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

Sir Henry Thomas De la Beche (1796–1855) was a talented and influential geologist. A friend of Mary Anning, he produced the famous lithograph Duria antiquior (1830), the first reconstruction of a scene from an ancient world, to support her work. He promoted government involvement in geology and became the founding Director of the British Geological Survey, which was officially recognised in 1835. Inspired by his work in Cornwall, he later founded the Royal School of Mines and the Museum of Practical Geology. Among his published works was a Manual of Geology (1831), which went through three English editions and was published in France, Germany and America. This 1824 collection of translations includes studies on sites across Europe and notes on the production of an early geological map of France. He also provides a table of equivalent formations and a translation of Brongniart's Classification of the Mixed Rocks
