    Abstract

    THIS volume furnishes a good example of what a busy man can do in his few intervals of leisure. The volume is mainly based on notes of excursions kept by the author while acting as secretary to the Glasgow Geological Society. It affords a fairly accurate idea of the geological structure of the country round about Glasgow, and of the principal features of interest which the rocks of the district present. The excursions extend as far as Stirling, take in the course of the Clyde and not a few districts on its banks. Many of the papers are pleasant reading; and even geological specialists may find something in the pages to interest and inform.

    Among the Rocks round Glasgow: A Series of Excursion-Sketches and other Papers.
