Key 17th, 18th to 19th century geological literature

Key 17th, 18th to 19th century geological literature is an online collection of digitized geological works from the 17th to 19th centuries that are present in the Oxford University libraries. The geological literature applies to the ‘English School’ of Geology. Some of it also relates to specimens held in the Geological Collections of the University Museum of Natural History, records and images of which are available online. This online collection therefore provides mainly sources for researchers in the history of science, geology, paleontology, petrology, and mineralogy.

Basic search in the entire collection is possible. In addition, the collection can be browsed alphabetically by title, subject, or name. Books are shown as high-resolution images. Each separate page can be downloaded in PDF format.
