This text provides a bibliography of publications on the history of geology written in the Latin alphabet. It is a detailed bibliographic listing covering both major and minor publications about all facets of the origin and growth of geology; its societies, associations and collections; the lives of those who built the science of geology; and the history of the petroleum industry. A useful aspect of this work is the separation of other studies into such topics as general histories of geology, histories related to specific countries, specialties, scientific societies, related fields such as chemistry, and even epic voyages related to geology. It has broadened the geographic and language coverage in the new volumes by the addition of much new material from Hungary, Turkey and Italy.
