Description:

This 2-volume work is based on a series of popular lectures by Prof. Percy Fry Kendall (1856-1936) in collaboration with his close friend Herbert Edward Wroot (1868-1939). It was printed in Vienna for the authors in 1924, and they distributed the book themselves. The work was intended to encourage interest in the geology of the Yorkshire district amongst amateur geologists. It consists of three parts, 'The Geology of Yorkshire', followed by 'Yorkshire from a Railway Carriage Window' (the Preface states that this second part describes 'the main features of geological interest visible from the windows of a railway carriage on the principle lines of Yorkshire. Robert Louis Stevenson, while he praised and practised walking-tours, asserted that "there are many ways of seeing landscape quite as good and none more varied, in spite of canting dilettantes, than from a railway train".'; the final section, ‘Specimen days in Yorkshire’, sets out a series of 116 suggested expeditions to see rock-formations and 'to afford opportunities for collecting fossils in the most prolific spots'.

The book was also issued bound as a single volume.
