Italian Volcanic Rocks 1


ALTHOUGH the Tertiary and Recent volcanic tract along the western side of the Apennines is classic ground to the geologist no less than to the historian, we still possess only meagre information concerning the many remarkable, and often unique, rock-types for which these Italian volcanoes have long been famous. A comprehensive and connected study of a large part of the assemblage by a well-qualified authority is therefore peculiarly welcome. Dr. Washington has devoted much attention to the subject, both before and since the publication, ten years ago, of his “Italian Petrological Sketches.”
