Description

    Bathymetrical Survey of the Scottish Fresh-Water Lochs. Conducted Under the Direction of Sir John Murray and Laurence Pullar During the Years 1897 to 1909. Report on the Scientific Results. Volume I. Edinburgh: Challenger Office, 1910.

    First edition. One octavo volume. lviii, 785 pages. Fifteen illustrated plates. Several illustrations and diagrams throughout the text. Two inserted fold out maps. Indices.

    Publisher's half leather binding double ruled in blind-stamp over delicately textured brown cloth covers. The front cover is lettered in gilt. The spine is in five sections, lettered and ruled in gilt. Very minor rubbing to the covers, very light bumping to the corners, previous owner's small black stamp to the bottom edge and the front free endpaper, some very light foxing to the edges. Altogether a very good copy.

    John Murray, Canadian-Scottish pioneering oceanographer, and Laurence Pullar published this elaborate bathymetric survey which covers 562 freshwater Scottish lochs in six volumes, of which this volume is the first.
