A Long Life's Work: an Autobiography

Nature volume 114, pages 114118 (26 July 1924) | Download Citation



FROM time to time Sir Archibald Geikie has interested his numerous readers by writing sketches or reminiscences of incidents in his long and busy life. In the volume now before us he has set out in orderly sequence the principal events of his career from early boyhood to a well-earned period of rest. Advancing years may have curtailed his activities, but his memories of friendly intercourse with many distinguished men in all parts of the world, of the almost innumerable functions in which he has taken a prominent part, and the charm of the literary style in which he tells his experiences, remain as fresh as ever.
