Simon Winchester praises this title in the "Further Reading" section of his book "The Map that Changed the World" (2001) - "The greatest of all the works noted here aside, of course, from Darwin is the majestic tome (no other word can possibly do justice) written in 1933 by W. J. Arkell: The Jurassic System in Great Britain. This utterly beautiful book, elegant in design and writing, represents the lifes work of a man who was passionately fascinated by the most celebrated and, one might say, looking at the rocks and villages along its outcrop, the most English of all the geological periods."
