"This bibliography attempts to bring together details of all those works written in languages using the Latin alphabet which deal with the history of geology. It does not pretend to list the book and publications thatm by their announcement of original theories and discoveries or their presentation of new information, form the foundations and framework for the science of geology [. . .] Instead, these volumes are a compilation of detailed bibliographic information on the works, major or minor, which tell of the origin and growth of geology, of its societies, associations and collections, of the history of the petroleum industry in which so many geologists have found employment, and of the lives of the men and women whose endeavours have built the science of geology and shown how it can be put to the service of mankind." - from the General Introduction, page 5.
