ATLAS OF PALAEOGEOGRAPHY AND LITHOFACIES
​​​​​​​
Geological Society Memoir No. 13

edited by J.C.W. Cope et al.

Large format atlas - A3 size

(Ex-library copy in fair
​​​​​​​condition - see below)


Despite its unappealing name, this publication is a remarkable piece of work and is essential for any serious collector of British fossils who wants to know more about what Britain looked like at a particular time in the past when these creatures were alive.

Over 100 attractive, clear, colour maps show the distribution of land and sea (palaeogeography) during each geological period from the late Precambrian to the present day - an interval of about one billion years!  Overlain on these maps is the distribution of rock types relating to each period (lithofacies), where they are known to occur, either at the surface or at depth (from borehole data).

The maps take full account of plate tectonic theory which has transformed our ideas of the palaeogeograpy of the British Isles and made most previous palaeogeographic maps obsolete. This atlas too, will become obsolete as new information comes to light, but for the moment this is the best atlas of its type available.


Published by the Geological Society. 1992. 153 pages. Hardback. Colour maps throughout.  ​​​​​​​In 1999 this atlas was published in A4 size. This is the first edition (A3).

This is a second hand copy (ex library) in 'fair' condition. The cover is worn and the spine is chipped and repaired. It has been well used. However, the inside of the book is clean and in very good condition.  It is therefore a perfectly usable copy.


This book is rarely available on the second hand market.
