London T. Nelson and Sons 1874 New Edition, Revised Hardback 
Large octavo size [16x24cm approx]. Very Good condition. Lovely leather binding with gilt decoration to face, raised bands and titles to spine, gilt decoration to inside edge.

Illustrated with 250 black and white engravings by Freeman, Giacomelli, Yan'Dargent, Skelton, Prior, Foulquier, Riou, Laplante, and others. xii, 715 pages This volume was founded on Figuier's ' La Terre et Les Mers' but so many additions have been made to the original, and its aim and scope have been so largely extended, that it may almost be called a new work. [Preface]. The subject is a comprehensive survey of the configuration of the Earth and the Seas, viewed from the standpoint of physical geography. Contents divided into six sections: I. On the Situation of the Earth in Space; II. On The Form and Dimensions of the earth; III. Surface of the Earth; IV. The Temperature of the Earth; V. The Fresh Waters; VI. The World's Seas. ID288004
