Slightly rubbed, with trace of browning; earlier owner's name and note penned on first page. Very good condition. "As the title indicates, this excursion focuses mainly on the volcanic and shallow-intrusive olivine-melilitite occurrences of the Robertson and Sutherland districts in the southwestern Cape. In age they span the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary. The route traverses the Cape Fold Belt and the lower portion of the main Karoo basin. An additional, but unrelated, feature of interest to volcanically-inclined geologists will be the interbedded volcaniclastic sediments of the early Permian Collingham Formation (Ecca Group), to be inspected in a roadcutting.".
