THE SEASHELL ON THE MOUNTAINTOP:

A STORY OF SCIENCE, SAINTHOOD AND THE HUMBLE GENIUS WHO DISCOVERED A NEW HISTORY OF THE EARTH

By Alan Cutler

(second hand copy in 'as new' condition)

The Seashell on the Mountaintop tells the remarkable story of the 17th-century Danish scientist Nicolaus Steno, the first man to claim that the Earth's past was chronicled in its layers of rock.

Steno thus forever changed Western civilisation's ideas of history, nature and time, but the implications of his work were not fully understood for over a century.

Published by Arrow Books in 2004. Paperback. 228 pages. Some black and white photos and illustrations. Excellent condition.
