This field-guide AND textbook, my version is from circa 1993, is in organization and presentation, the best that I have ever seen since the 1950's... begining of my geology and mineral collecting interests.
The English geoscientists are the BEST in the world in their presentation and love of what they are researching. This is a classical-type of English field guide book in modern expose', that deserves the "right" for CONTINUED publication. Its application (use) is world wide...! Amatures and Experts alike!!!
I am a dedicated teacher like my English colleagues, and I would like to have an "unlimited number" of free-copies to just simply to GIVE AWAY...
