The map that changed the world : William Smith and the birth of modern geology by Simon Winchester( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 3,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fascinating story of William Smith, the orphaned son of an English country blacksmith, who became obsessed with creating the world's first geological map and ultimately became the father of modern geology. The Map That Changed the World is, at its foundation, a very human tale of endurance and achievement, of one man's dedication in the face of ruin and homelessness. The world's coal and oil industry, its gold mining, its highway systems, and its railroad routes were all derived entirely from the creation of Smith's first map.; and with a keen eye and thoughtful detail, Simon Winchester unfolds the poignant sacrifice behind this world-changing discovery
The Oxford companion to food by Alan Davidson( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining serious and meticulously researched fact with entertaining and witty commentary, it has been deemed unique by chefs and reviewers around the globe. It contains both a comprehensive catalogue of food stuffs--biscuits named after battles and divas; body parts from toe to cerebellum; breads from Asia to the Mediterranean--and a richly allusive account of the culture of food, whether expressed in literature and cookery books, or as dishes peculiar to a country or community ... There are entries on shifting concerns and attitudes such as convenience food, local food, and Mediterranean diet; new research on food and drugs, genetics, obesity, medicine; new trends such as foraging, fusion food, low temperature cooking; new cultural and sociological insights on topics such as etiquette, gastronomy, and food photography; and numerous entries on people of special significance within the world of food; among them Clarence Birdseye, Henri Nestle, and Louis Pasteur."--Jacket flap
