DescriptionSectional Committee: Geology

Not recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The first part of the paper 'is a discursive series of dogmatic statements, with no scientific description of new facts to support them'. If evidence has been published elsewhere, as stated by the author, the current paper should be published in the same place as a sequel. The second part of the paper contains technical descriptions of new species, unsuited for the Philosophical Transactions.
