Geologie der Erde: Geologie Afrikas


STUDENTS of African geology are under a great debt of gratitude to Prof. Krenkel for his masterly summary of its scattered and polyglot literature. The first of his three volumes begins with a general survey of the physiography and geology of the continent as a whole, and then deals in detail with the north-eastern and eastern areas and the African islands of the Indian Ocean. The second volume is devoted to South Africa, and the third will apparently cover west equatorial and north-western Africa. The book is the result of an exhaustive study of the literature which has been digested with such critical and cautious judgment that it helps the interpretation of the evidence as well as its systematic arrangement and tabulation.
